A festive message

"Young Scot is the national youth information and citizenship charity. [They] provide young people, aged 11 - 26, with a mixture of information, ideas and incentives to help them become confident, informed and active citizens."

"Young Scot has released its annual festive message starring young people from across Scotland and Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon. The poem written by rising young Scottish talent, Ellen Renton, urges people across the country to look forward to the future after a challenging 2016 and focuses on Scotland being a welcoming nation this festive season."

They say: "You can take part as well! Film yourself reading your favourite line and post it to social media using the hashtag
#YSFestive while tagging three friends and challenging them to do the same."

Chain mail style. No thanks.  Co-starring Nicola. No thanks.

No harm to Ellen Renton either because her poem might have been fine except for one thing. People are beginning to find it more and more distasteful when Nicola Sturgeon, the Pied Piper of Holyrood, takes every photo opportunity to surround herself with children and young people.

You have to ask: what has she ever done for children and young people?
