‘Devomax’ offers a Tiger path without austerity

Sir, The Republic of Ireland has emerged as a country in control of its destiny and with a lot to offer its citizens across the spectrum of (in no particular order) culture, healthcare, education, employment and investment.

This took about 60 years to achieve, after separation from the rest of the UK in 1921, and perhaps Scotland can get there faster but even 16-year-old voters tomorrow must be prepared for a tough time for perhaps all of their working lives.

“Devo max” would get them on the path to be another Celtic Tiger without the decades of austerity.
