LIKE D Moran (Letters, June 30), I too was upset by the comment including the elderly along with Unionists, racists and “headbangers”.

In spite of being elderly well before the 2014 referendum, I and my partner both voted Yes, after working for it from the day the campaign started. That work has continued ever since.

In fact, when The National offered a special deal for the “Open Minds” project, it was impossible to find anyone in our wide elderly acquaintance who was not already a supporter, and instead the offer went to four undecideds who had become casual, socially distanced acquaintances during the daily exercise in lockdown.

I suspect that the number of elderly supporting the Union is decreasing, and consists mainly of those who were actively involved in “standing together” during the war. They seem to forget that Australia, New Zealand, Canada and many other countries now independent of the UK did so too, and none of them want Westminster running their affairs for that reason.
