I am astonished there has not been a bigger outcry about the disgraceful treatment of the crofters of Raasay ("Crofters lose shooting rights to outsiders", The Herald, February 21 and Letters, February 23, 25 & 26).

Why are MSPs of all parties not demanding action to restore to the crofters what is morally theirs?
