2015 UK General Election

SNP all the way for me - their policies are everything that the Labour Party used to be and they have done loads for Scotland in the past 7 years.  Also with a bigger presence at Westminster they can continue to fight for Scotland every step of the way.  I have a feelting that Nicola Sturgeon will shine at the Leaders debate on Thursday, she is an excellent First Minister, aritculate, intelligent but most of all down to earth.

To be honest MM, there are a couple of their policies I'm dead against....for example, guardians for children, which will effectively take away the rights of parents, but I'd still vote for them, then fight about that afterwards!

Caz I can see why people are anxious about this policy but I work in Children's Services and this is just firming up what was in place before, there are not anymore powers to quickly remove children or replace the role of the parent it is in place to ensure the most vulnerable children have support to stop situatiins getting worse and them suffering.  It won't affect 90% of the population but will stop vulnerable kids not getting the help they need.  GIRFEC (Getting it Right for Every Child) is a supportive measure which puts support mechanisms in place to stop situations with the potential to deteriorate from doing so and again ensuring both vulnerable children and families are supported to keep them together.  There are no new scary powers to stop parents from parenting it is to support those parents who are struggling and most importantly protect vulnerable kids.  There are loads of articles about it which are confusing but we've been around it for a while now and it really is a positive move and if it stops one child from slipping through the net it's worth it.

GIRFEC...... 'Getting It Right For Every Child' is anything but! shocking It is a horrendous invasion by the state into family life, which allows the state to interfere in every aspect of the child's upbringing and override the wishes of the parents on even the most basic of things! Rather than helping vulnerable children, it is diverting much needed funds 'away from them'! I would urge everyone to go to Change.Org and sign the GIRFEC petition, to stop this monstrous violation of our human rights! It doesn't matter what nationality you are or where you live. If this dangerous bill is allowed to pass in Scotland, you could be next!

GIRFEC and similar intrusive QUANGOs are how children from perfectly respectable households get spirited away in the night by dark strangers and don't see their parents again for two years, just because they scorched their back on the bathroom radiator.

Aye....sounds about right....and the parents would not even be allowed to challenge, as the 'guardian's' word is taken as 'fact'! Will you sign the petition Nigel?

Yeah, if I thought it would make a difference.

If I was in Scotland, I'd do my utmost to try to prevent this dreadful bill going through.... but as it stands, signing the petition is all I can do, so I have to hope it helps, but if not, at least I'll know I did what I could.
