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.

  • Cinema operator appointed to Campbeltown Picture House
    My thoughts exactly when I saw Mr Arthur had been appointed. I don’t doubt his credentials, but there are a finite amount of people with a finite amount of disposable income in the Kintyre area. The good folks in the Wee Toon and surrounding areas already put their hands in their pockets disproportionally for charities and good causes each and every week. They will still only use the Pictures as a treat and watch a film once, no matter how new and good that film is. I still believe that the locals will continue to support the Wee Pictures, because they have fought so hard to keep it, but don’t let the management get too far ahead of themselves
  • Scotland 5th in Rugby’s 6 Nations Cup
    We ARE getting a new coach, but sadly the fool Johnson is being retained as the Director of Rugby with responsibility for the professional game. He has messed up the current squad, and will do equal harm for the future of Scottish rugby. He is never a head coach, always a number 2. When he left the Ospreys the players were reported as saying they had no idea what he wanted them t do. Good riddance say, and the sooner he goes completely the better

    Well done the Wee Toon for another coup. I wish I could get “home” for this event.
  • Jackie Baillie’s ‘bedroom tax’ protection bill moves forward with cross-party support
    I didn’t notice, but I understand that the adjustment of benefits was previously done for those in private rented. And I am sure that there was no uproar or demonstrations, hence me seeming to have not noticed it. But for some reason (political expediency?) there seems to be uproar now when the benefits. Makes me ‘ead hurt
  • Pro-union campaign takes the celebrity route
    As an exiled Scot who doesn’t get a vote on the future of my country, I would like to ask what happens if the vote is “No”? Does it go like Wales, when the Welsh had a vote for devolution and voted no, but then they kept having a vote every 10 years or so until the Nationalists got the “right result”. Just wondering out loud

  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
