Class sizes to reduce in P1, 2 and 3 to 18 said the SNP and they put aside £40 m. to do it. Now we know the cost is £360 m. a £320 m. shortfall, let's not beat about the bush here that figure means the SNP are either liars or they are seriously incompetent either way the promise is 'Scotch Mist.'
Meanwhile here in sunny Renfrewshire the Education Board heard the following betrayal at it's meeting, P1 will be 25, P2 - 30 reducing to 25 in August and P3 - 30.
When you consider that the SNP are cutting £4.5 m. from education, and teachers are leaving in droves as well as children sitting highers not being given the subjects of their choice, you can only conclude that the people of Renfrewshire are being betrayed by the SNP particularly the children.
This is what happens when people with no political anchor get their hands on power, they believe in nothing they stand for nothing and nothing is sacred to them even our children's futures.
Their flagship policy of a local income tax is also looking like toast as well, law experts are lining up to tell them what Labour has been saying is correct, that it will not work and it is more than likely against EU rules and will be the subject of legal proceedings.
The SNP say it will bring in £1.6 billion and the Council Tax at the moment brings in £2.5 billion that's £900 m. short in the school I went to.
Is it more incompetence or more lies ? you decide.
For years we have sat in Renfrewshire Council listening to the SNP damning PPP, every meeting saw more censure and condemnation it became their favourite hatred and, believe me, they have many.
They even went so far as to say that the new Council Headquarters would never happen because the PPP scheme would collapse. Salmond (the spiv) of course opened it with great joy, no mention of PPP that day, just a plaque saying 'First Minister Salmond MSP opened this place. No mention either of his other job as an MP - (the spiv) eh !
Now we have their replacement for PPP and they are forced to admit that it is no different to PPP, more incompetence or lies ? did they really not know that they would be found out ?
They probably did know but the prospect of power as it got closer pushed aside any pretence at truth or decency. To grab that power they were and still are willing to say and do anything, no scam too nasty, no lie too big, no principle that can't be dumped.
This is the SNP today, in power lead by a con man and dragging Scotland into the mire with them.
