WITH regard to Ian Johnstone’s letter “Union is not a happy family” (15 December), I hate to disappoint him, but to most people south of the Border whether Scotland achieves independence is not the major talking point. Indeed I haven’t heard anyone in this area mention the event in weeks.
He really should get his facts right. It is the current UK Government that issues any “facts” counter to those of the Yes campaign. Recently the First Minister of Wales became involved because of the SNP wishing to keep sterling as Scotland’s currency, as he has a perfect right to being in charge of the Welsh Assembly.
I personally am very happy to think Scotland would become independent as this would mean the UK Government would then have answered the West Lothian Question.
