I subscribe to a weekly email update on various aspects activity at Holyrood, schools being one of those areas.
I have to say that it's quite depressing, because so far, in 3.5 years, the Education Newsletter has not heralded the building of one new school financed, or even part-financed, by the Scottish Parliament.
Despite the grand promises to match Labour's school-building programme "brick for brick" , the SNP administration has not managed to provide the cash for even one new school to be completed.
In the period 2002-2007, with Labour running both Holyrood and my local council area, the council built four new secondary schools and one new primaery school. Since then: nothing. Not one new brick on one new brick. It's a failure of epic and damaging proportions....
Today's list of "achievements", if you can bother or bear to read it, is headed by a poster competition! for St Andrew's day.
Which says it all about our SNP "government". No new schools. Oh no, we can't provide new schools, what do you think we are? A government?
But flags, oh yes, we've plenty of flags.....
GDP: don’t expect a bounce any time soon
