First Minister is guilty of rank hypocrisy when she advocates restoring our peatlands

The First Minister advocates “restoring peatlands” as a component of tackling climate change (“Scots told to speak up on tackling ‘climate emergency’”, The Herald, June 20). The most significant damage to peatlands has been from wind farms (also advocated by the First Minister) which require bases and access roads. The First Minister has declined to acknowledge this, either through ignorance (incompetence) or deviousness (deception by economy with truth). Hypocrisy is not a robust policy; people notice.

The SNP is currently chanting in unison that Boris Johnson is not fit to be Prime Minister. Let the Scottish people, in majority if not in unison, commence chanting that Nicola Sturgeon is not fit to be First Minister; list of reasons on request.
