IT may be a new year, but some things never change. I had to search for several minutes in my local Morrisons store’s newspaper stand to locate your fantastic publication.

It now sits proudly in pride of place. To think Scots would hide The National away is absolutely beyond words.

Bungling Boris and Gormless Gove must be laughing into their salmon and scrambled eggs to think they have succeeded in getting people to actively try to ensure another land benefits from their own country’s resources and their own land never prospers.

Keep up the great work and here’s to a landslide in May.
