Largs nationalist Stewart Connor has said that the original Lord Glasgow was one of the "parcel of rogues" which sold out on Scotland.
IN a hard-hitting letter to the 'News" Mr Connor stated:
"Your recent story "Lord Glasgow joins anti-independence campaign" overlooked a number of very important historical facts.
"The current Earl of Glasgow is following in the footsteps of one of his ancestors, David Boyle, 1st Earl of Glasgow who was instrumental in the negotiations which sealed the Act of Union in 1707.
"This David Boyle was one of the "Parcel of Rogues". As Robert Burns our famous bard eloquently puts it.. "Bought and Sold for English Gold".
Mr Connor's full letter is on a page of veiws in the Largs & Millport Weekly News of March 14.
