Comment posted School Dinners stooshie: young Martha Payne has the right pedigree by Iain McCallum.

But in fairness, she does compliment some of the meals, it was just the (particularly) miserly ones that the national press highlighted. That said, it is a good blog and well done to a switched on 9 year-old.

  • Landowners’ statement on Land Reform Bill
    From my tuppence worth, there must be more important and urgent matters that the government could be concentrating on. Seems a bit like the Liebour lot in London who spent 700 hours on their class warfare hunting with dogs act. Hope the MSPs get on with those matters that effect the majority of the population
  • 2007 racist sectarian jibe comes back to haunt Argyll & Bute SNP candidate
    The same old nonsense was brought up down here in Wales. Comments made, 8 years ago in this case, and 10 and 14 years ago down here. Surely it is hardly relevant for a one off comment if there is no pattern of behaviour. Reeks of desperation in the opposition
  • Alarmingly revelatory Police Scotland statement on Inverness armed officer incident
    Down here in Wales my understanding is that firearms officers are routinely armed with handguns on their hip and larger firearms locked in cabinet in the vehicle. They are often sent to calls when no-one else is available and don’t leave their pistols (or Tasers) in the car. And to be honest there are so few of them, and we rarely see them that no-one really gives a hoot. The problems is exacerbated by the fear of the Police Service of saying it as it is, because they are afraid to upset anyone.

  • The Seven Leaders debate
    Hear hear. We are going down the American route of personality over policies. If you base your precious vote on the sound bite displays over a mere 2 hour period it shows what is wrong with our democracy. I will qualify my views with the fact I could not bring myself to watch this, same as I can’t listen to QT and PMQs.

  2. no suprise in the experiance of this 9 year old and school meals. We hear so much about healthy balanced diet yet the very people entrusted to provided guidance and education in this field are failling our youngsters.

    If this was a private functioning resturant it would no longer be trading.

  3. What do they expect to get for a 2 pound dinner, if just a piece of fruit will cost how much? And a yogourt?
    In the house holdings they don’t do much better either. It a cultural thing. I have never seen people spending money buying and cooking good food.

  4. if you look into what has happend you will find there has been no change at all to the school dinners …the school has a menu system with always a healthy choice and also more “main stream” meals for the kids who will not eat if there is no “junk ” on the plate there is always salad and baked potatos or a choice of main meal off the four week menu perhaps if veg asked the dinner ladys if she could photograph all the choces she has on offer it would give a better reflection of the healthy options that are being passed up
