And the prize for bare faced cheek goes to....

“When you’re trying to change people’s lives for the better, it should never be tokenistic and it should never be worn as a badge of achievement. It’s about doing the right thing, it’s about doing the fair thing.”

Minister for Schools & Thrills

Education Minister Maureen Watt revealed to Parliament this week that SNP Ministers had officially opened no less than 8 schools in the last 12 months.

She neglected to tell Parliament that not only was every single school opened built under the LibDem/Labour Executive but not one single new school has been initiated under the SNP.

Just another example of the SNP preferring grandstanding instead of school building.
