Happy New Year: 1st Herald letter of 2016. (No £wall)

RICHARD Mowbray (Letters, December 31) should not worry too much about the SNP and its endemic and fanatical anti-Englishness.

In the end, it is self-defeating: to emphasise the imagined differences between England and Scotland, the SNP needs a Tory government, and long as there is a Tory government, there is no chance whatsoever of a further referendum.

And if there is a Labour revival at some point (for example, on that great and glorious day when Jeremy Corbyn admits that Tony Blair was a great reforming Labour Prime Minister), it must include significant gains at the expense of the Nationalists.

Either way, Mr Mowbray can sleep soundly in his bed.
