State Mandatory Parenting
I’m aware this is yet another post about the SNP’s policy of having a ‘named person’ for every child born in Scotland, but I make no excuses. This policy blatantly ignores the wishes of parents. Whilst there are irresponsible parents in every country in the world, the majority take their responsibilities seriously.
During an evening out with friends the other week, the conversation turned to grandchildren and I mentioned this horrendous policy. Nobody believed that the SNP government would overreact to the need to care for vulnerable children in such a draconian manner. They do believe it now as I provided all the information via the wonder of email and are spreading the word. All said they would never have voted SNP at the General Election if they’d known their grandchildren were being treated as ‘wards of the state’ - an apt description I thought.
Sheila is one of our regular readers and provided the above video along with the one below plus this link. I know many of you don’t live in Scotland but do have connections here, so can I ask you to send your friends/family this post because it’s essential every parent knows about this policy. Thanks.
The following video is lengthy but interesting. There are few people who take the trouble to look behind the closed doors in the Scottish Government, so credit to UK Column News for examining Holyrood in detail and to David Scott’s excellent analysis of the ‘Scottish System’ of government.
