ANOTHER far-sighted article by George Kerevan (Defeating populist far right must be a priority, May 13).

Financial warfare between America, China and the EU, with Russia watching quietly in the wings, has one aim: international domination by a faceless group of the mega-wealthy.

Could we depend on their acting other than in self-interest when population growth versus food supplies is challenged by climate change in the near future? How many know the worlds back-up seed bank at Svalbard is suffering from the melting Arctic?

Feed the public on royalty, celeb antics and similar trivia and let loose the big mouths to help win control. It is vital that an independent Scotland remains in the EU to inject sane, intelligent debate before it’s too late.
