For those without zoom:
"When in a hole, stop digging. It`s sound advice, yet seldom taken by governments in self-inflicted trouble, as is the case with the SNP today over the Named Person law."
Many people believe that Named Persons are putting their heads on the block should things go wrong; they are not. Note how well any potential Named person in the Liam Fee case has been protected. It is the body which appoints the Named Person which is accountable, according to the law.
I am glad Jim Sillars has pointed that out.
"Is the child able or unable under the Act to sue the Named Person authority for serious failure in looking after his or her `wellbeing`? The Act is silent."
It will be interesting to see how the SNP digs itself out of its hole, this Wednesday in Holyrood.
NOT TO BE MISSED.
