    What is wrong with giving them healthy options to choose between? Why does the choice have to be healthy or unhealthy?
  • School Meals saga: Council distorts facts and blocks Martha’s blog
    I don’t find it strange that a nine year old has a blog, nor do i find it strange that they have a camera in school. I do find it strange that someone who puts the responsibility of their health onto a child thinking that same child is too young to have an opinion.
  • School Meals saga: Council distorts facts and blocks Martha’s blog
    I want to go to that school for lunch tomorrow. :D
  • Lochgilphead primary pupil’s internet exposure of poor school meals goes viral
    Nice! Lets blame the 9 year old, words fail me.
    It’s also all very well to talk of national standards and guidelines but when kids are left hungry surely they need to be looking at those again? None of my children are overweight but they do have healthy appetites, fairly often wont go for a choice they like because they know they’ll be hungry after it, when paying the amount i do for a dinner (£1.85) the least is expect is for my kids to not be left hungry.
    Leaving children as young as 5 to make informed choices about their lunch is as daft as allowing them to choose whether or not they do any work at school, they don’t do that so….
    Preaching about healthy lunches is great but when they are russling up chips when the other option has run out isn’t exactly healthy. :/
    When i phoned to have a discussion with the suppliers, the attitude i got was shocking, very abrubt and practically accusing me of lying.
    I have bigger fish to fry in regards to the school so i dropped it, i may send the kids in with a camera though. ;)
  • Expensive election goof story from Angus
    Simon do you go round commenting on all the stories on the internet that don’t interest you? It must take up lots of your time.

    Maybe he’s of the hope that people wont link Nield to Neild in the elections? :D

  2. Congratulations to Ewan. Was with him at the count, he and his wife went through every emotion possible but brilliant to see them so happy at the end of it all.
    Peter Nield, the main proponent of the superschool, was what can only be described as humiliated. Less than 200 first preference votes for a sitting education convener must be something of a record. He did not appear at the count – one of very few candidates who did not make it.

  3. Congratulations Ewan!
    Now, how about a parent as convener of the Education Committee now that Mr Nield is no longer qualified to do the job?

    • Well done Ewan and let’s hope the judicial review goes your way too!! Otherwise you will have got where you are through false allegations. Never mind though, either way you’re a winner – now that the SNP have power there will be no low cost affordable housing built in (the Muirfield site) your neighbourhood.

      • On the matter of the Judicial Review Angus Council gave raised against the Education Secretary on the Muirfield determination – we understand and, on 3rd May, as the electorate voted, Angus Council instructed its counsel to ask for the case to be ‘continued’ – postponed – so that some of their arguments could be changed.

        The case has now been ‘continued’ until 28th and 29th June.

        Since counsel usually charge retainers, this continuation will be expensive.

        As objective observers who have seen the evidence – and so has anyone who reads the articles we have published on this because we reproduced it – there is no question of ‘false allegations’ of flaws, distortions and procedural failures in the Angus case.

        This is not something we – or anyone – wishes to see; but when we do, none of really have the option of ignoring it, if things are ever to be better.

      • My understanding was that the judicial review was on the point of the legality of the govt decision and whether they exceeded their power and nothing to do with any claim that Ewan might have got any facts that he presented wrong.

        The court time so far will have to be paid for by the council tax paying public, as those who decided not to await the result of these elections before forging ahead knew would be the case.

        If the new administration pulls out of the case then at least the cost will be a lot lower than seeing it through to the end only to be told that the government did not exceed its power.

  4. A storming result for Ewan and Angus! No doubt the judicial review will be cancelled and they’ll spend the money on something much more useful;-)
