WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER

WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER The SNP is a real mess these days. Membership falling, funds depleted to the point where ringfenced funds need to be appropriated just to keep the ship afloat, a policy agenda that more represents a Stonewall Conference rather than an Independence Movement.

HERE IS SHIRLEY. SHE HOPES TO CONFUSE YOUR KIDS.

NOW THIS IS A CRISIS. I will comment later on the rest of the Cabinet reshuffle but I am really concerned at the move to replace John Swinney as Education Secretary. He was not enjoying great success and was in regular conflict with others involved in education. Some may be pleased that he has beenContinue reading “HERE IS SHIRLEY.
