Scottish independence; MAILBAG.

DURING our extended holiday of northern Scotland and the northern Isles last summer we asKed lots of people their views on Scottish Independence.

In every case they were completely against it saying that a 'yes' vote will be a disaster and giving countless reasons for staying in the union. UnliKe John Hein, of Edinburgh, (Mailbag, Saturday, February 8) I believe his fellow Scots are far more savvy than he gives them credit for and they will maKe a sensible decision when the time comes.

But I do agree with him that David Cameron has no need to waste his breath or offer sweeteners as temptation for this vote which some of us see as an ego trip for salmon and sturgeon.
