Yesterday I wrote about a meeting where the nationalists were in an absolutely foul mood. Mild
mannered Cllr. Mackay screeching like a fish wife, Cllr. Cameron refusing to take part even as education convener when an amendment on education was moved, Cllr. Nicolson casting himself as the “Vigilante Man” (the Travellers must be trembling) and Cllr. McFee displaying his Mr. Nasty credentials by using the Phrase “final solution” when speaking about Travelling People, just like the Cllr. McFee of old before he sailed in to the ’Bermuda Triangle’ that for him was Holyrood. What is going on I asked, well.
This morning bright and early one day after the full council we had some board papers delivered and they contained the following :-
Education Item 6 (a) a glowing report from HMIe on the South Primary School it was a great report, one of the best that I have seen on a Renfrewshire School, well done to them you might think eh ? Well no actually.
Education Item 7 the very next item, on the same board papers. “Proposals for the closure of South Primary School” no I am not making this up you can read it for yourself on the council web site. They are going to close the school that has just received one of the best reports ever seen, no wonder Cllr. Cameron had abandoned her usual sunny disposition, no one likes being humiliated.
Community and Family Care Board Item 16, a report stating that the Lagoon Ice Rink would not reopen they have abandoned the fight to restore the ice to the Lagoon, This is one of the main items that the SNP campaigned on and criticised Labour over non stop, the ’Bravehearts have thrown in the tartan towel again. Libraries, Nurseries, Area Offices, Elderly Wardens, Public Conveniences, savage education cuts and now School closures and closure of the Ice Rink. The unemployed probationary teachers must be ready to give up when they realize that the teachers from this primary are about to leap over them in the queue for jobs, is it possible to find a worse administration ?
Come on now wouldn’t your face be tripping you as well sitting there knowing this would break the next day, unless they didn’t know of course, but if they knew and held it back until after the meeting that would be dishonest would it not ? They were scowling in anticipation of the imminent undignified humbling and, wait for it folks there is more to come, that’s a promise. Not an SNP promise, this one will happen.
