Rise of the SNP

Ken Currie (Letters, 24 March) says there are some pretty desperate politicians out there. There must also be some pretty gullible unionists if they fall for the right-wing media scare story that the SNP will be writing the Labour budget.

Elsewhere (same day) it was good of Elizabeth Towns to speak for the entire population of Scotland in saying we don’t want another referendum and for Raymond Paul to add to the lexicon of cheap insults aimed at SNP supporters when he calls us “lemmings”.

However, I think he might want to think again on who is going over the cliff and who is on the rise with 100,000 members.
