One of the most shockingly ill-informed articles I think I have ever read. But here it is anyway:

“THERE WILL BE more human sacrifices for the rather selfish pleasure of a few”. It was a horrible but easy prediction for me to make over mountain deaths when I was on Newsnight Scotland last Wednesday night. Shockingly, just the next day, three more died on the Scottish mountains..."

In reply to Douglas Griffin: I'm confused, who is being forced to go into the hills against there will, even for mountain rescue it is a choice both to join and the risk, to mountain rescue teams, is always being assessed during a rescue?

She's a self-publicising idiot. I'm not clicking on the link as I don't want to encourage her.

She writes like a hysterical 14 year old, that's been at the Buckie.

All I see is someone who has been ostracised from the Scottish political system, and who is using the deaths of several people to get her voice heard.

A repugnant individual.
