Yes Scotland, you had the opportunity to say something along the lines of ‘We don’t endorse Stuart Campbell’s views with regard to his use of the word ‘scum’ but, as he is an individual heading up a completely independent campaign organisation and not a member of Yes Scotland, we do not feel it is appropriate for us to comment any further on this matter”. Instead you act as if this is your campaign to run in only the way you deem appropriate and hand ammunition to our opponents.
I respect your stance on being the upbeat and nice face of the independence debate but you have to recognise that this argument is not simply about whether or not Scotland COULD go its own way but whether it SHOULD, and that is not simply an economic argument and needs to be met with a degree of passion and fire or we are in danger of losing those who do not simply look at life through the eyes of an accountant.
OK, I’ve been biting my tongue in regards to Yes Scotland for a while, because I think it’s counter-productive to criticise allies in a cause. However I will speak on this singular occasion, in what I hope to be a constructive if firm manner.
