Good grief - The SNP has 'Tartan Bookers'.

Here is something truly astonishing:

"One of the Scottish National party's leading figures today sets out a radical plan for greater involvement of the private sector in the provision of public services. Michael Russell, a former MSP who is virtually guaranteed to return to Holyrood next year, warns that the government in Scotland is fattened "to the point of dangerous obesity". Among the proposals the two put forward are for education vouchers, previously a Tory policy, the private sector competing with the NHS and for the abolition of Scottish Enterprise.

I am by no means religious (a sort of Anglican agnostic/atheist), but this seems apt:

"I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance". Luke 15 7.

Mike Russell's been saying this sort of thing for quite a while now.

I'll admit to not really being up to speed with Scottish politics, so thanks for the insight.

So the SNP are not unreconstructed Stalinists after all.

It gave me quite a shock, I can tell you. Mind you, a thousand years ago they used to call the SNP 'Tartan Tories'. Perhaps there is some positioning going on for the split that always happens when a pro-independence party achieves power and then has new issues to wrestle with.

I'd still give them their freedom and hence us ,ours!!

I guess the SNP has worked out that if the London Tap is turned off they will not be able to sustain a public sector of near Soviet proportions...
