Bomb remark really does beggar belief

Having just read the Hawick News of Friday, May 17, after returning from holiday, I write to say that Frank Scott’s inane comment about the explosive discovered up on the Moor, and the best place to explode it being Galashiels, really does beggar belief.

Maybe his remark shows the mark of the man who made it? With all that’s going on in the world, a bomb exploding anywhere is not a joke.

The seriousness of the find certainly merited the front page, but I’m surprised you allowed Mr Scott’s stupid comment to be published.
