I have returned from three weeks away to two Courier letters from Alistair Redman who I promised myself I would ignore.

In the first he announces that he is no longer the proprietor of a post office and assumes that his customers will miss him.

A word of advice may be in order; in spite of evidence to the contrary in Argyll and Bute, being a councillor is not a lifetime career, the few electors who gave him their first preference vote may not repeat the error. Stick to the day job young man.

Mr Redman translates an Audit Scotland report into Scotland’s NHS that it is not improving due to ’10 years of mismanagement.’ He fails to point out that Scotland’s NHS is the most successful and well managed of the four NHSs in the UK.

He describes the roughly half of the population who would prefer Scotland to be independent of the UK as separatists and nationalists and dwindling in number.

Separatists and nationalist are just like Brexit supporters I suppose, but unlike Brexit supporters certainly not dwindling in number, not according to the latest polls.

The final straw is that he describes himself as making measured and reasonable criticisms. I suggest he looks up the meanings of those two words.
