I remember when the salaries of police and army were improved by that woman. Lots of ORDINARY people said this was solely to control civil instability which was sure to come, due to her policies. There should have been a revolution,but the people then, as now, were divided. Exactly as the politicos want it.

A question....... If an MP serves only one term, does he/she qualify for a pension?

Another.....Any action against the Westminster thieves? ( The ones who were caught )

I have always held the Brit. parliament in the highest esteem. Not any more. I am thoroughly, totally disenchanted with our rulers. Robin Hood in reverse. I wonder how many young people would volunteer should there ever be a big conflict.

I am neither for or against these cuts but I think some of you should know some of the facts in relation to school meals in Glasgow. The Scottish Parliament have introduced numerous 'healthy eating' ideas in recent years and sadly the vast majority have failed in Glasgow and West Scotland.

They have taken away fizzy drink machines which in turn means that the kids have an option to either eat their food in the school dining hall and then go outside for their fizzy drinks. The vast majority go outside and get whatever is on offer from the local Chinese, Chippy or Indian with their special offers of stodge and chips with free fizzy drinks thrown in. It also creates a great loss to the school revenue. Eastbank Academy in the east end is a perfect example of schoolkids rejecting what is on offer from the school canteen and they have deserted the dining hall in droves in recent terms. And believe you me we have enough bad health issues in the Shettleston area without our children rejecting healthy eating options because of a can of Coke or Irn Bru. The vast majority of Secondary School kids do not want to work at eating fruit i.e. peeling an apple , orange or a banana. This means that valuable staff time is spent cutting up fruit and mixing it up in small plastic bags. The truth be told the vast majority of MSP's never attended school dining halls in their schooldays and those who did usually have bad memories of pink custard and rhubarb so they have literally no idea of what a modern day school dining hall and kitchen is capable of serving without ramming all sorts of rabbit food down our children's throats. Leave school dinners to the people who know best the School Dinner wummen who know their weans better than anyone else. rolleyes.gif

Spend your Tax money on your children, check out the Charities you do donate too and make folk responsible for themselves! Temporary assistance is a virtue, permanent assistance is FRAUD!
