SNP candidate

I found it almost beyond belief (Southern, April 12) that an SNP candidate at the coming elections (Alastair Cranston) could say that he doesn’t believe in independence when the whole raison d’etre of the SNP is to take Scotland out of the UK.

Let the electors of Hawick and Denholm be under no illusion – a vote for the SNP is a vote for independence.
