Stability needed

Have your say

Discussion of Susan Forde’s letter (30 September) on the referendum result reveals an important issue to be settled. Talk about “rejecting the result” or a “recount” and even a “second referendum” is threatening stability.

Already some North-east politicians are expressing concern that “loose talk” could hamper investment in the Aberdeen by-pass. Isn’t the important issue to be settled that political stability is of overriding concern for 
everyone? Ms Forde must see that if enough people refuse to accept the result, democracy is impossible. Arguably, then, order may break down and the freedoms we all cherish may be irrevocably lost.
