May I make an observation for the benefit of Alastair Redman of Islay (Letters, The Oban Times, March 2)?
Repeating an inexactitude weekly over several months does not make it true. I do know something of the workload accomplished by our MP Brendan O’Hara and that of our local MSP and Brexit minister Michael Russell, and I am certain that they both give great value in the ‘day job’.
If  Mr Redman has a specific example of any neglectful practice perpetrated by either of these gentlemen or by any other SNP elected member, then let him state it.
His current practice of non-specific accusations is inaccurate, repetitive and insulting to the readership.
The SNP stated in its UK general election manifesto in 2015 that if circumstances changed, it might seek a referendum. It was hugely successful in that election, reducing Tory, Labour and Lib-Dems to just one MP each.
Since then, circumstances could hardly have changed more.
Dot Macdonald,
Crannag A Mhinisteir, Oban.
