Letters / Beating a dead donkey

I’ve noticed in a couple of recent local press articles that our long-serving MP has taken time to inform Shetland constituents just how upset the fishermen are about Tory Brexit betrayal and bungling.

Feelings are important, but what I want to know is what are the LibDems going do to fix the problem?

Stating the blooming obvious and winging in the local press will continue to be as unproductive, in regard to achieving anything at all, as it’s always been.

Publicly beating a dead donkey only makes it appear as if the LibDems are doing something. It doesn’t ever make the donkey respond to instructions.

Virtual signalling aside, what can the LibDems do other than ask us to wait four years, until the next General Election, when the Scottish people will again be granted the glorious democratic right to wait and see if England votes the Tories out or not.
