Indeed so.

Maybe the Scot Govt needs some urgent training on safeguarding protocols.

We also have the trial of Grabbyhands Eck (allegedly) to look forward to.

All day I’ve been hearing about this man who says he acted “foolishly.” He was grooming this child. And that thread is bang on the money.

Good article. SNP need to be challenged and their policies questioned. There is no other political party in Scotland strong enough to hold their feet to the flames.

My one tiny positive in all of this, is that with him out of the running to succeed Nicola Sturgeon, Joanna Cherry is in a stronger position.

I’m sure they’ll be a pile on though.

I've been waiting for someone to point this out. State sponsored grooming of children - in plain sight. angry

From the party that tried (and thankfully failed) to bring in the named person scheme 🤦‍♀️

In what way is this 'state sponsored'?

The minimisation in the word ‘foolish’. angry

It’s insulting.

"State sponsored" - politicians with a personal predilection for young people (alongside their useful idiot colleagues who dismiss safeguarding as irrelevant) grooming children into believing that they have no right to boundaries and removing all sex based rights and sex segregated spaces.

Too many examples of politicians, celebrities, senior staff in local government, the civil service, the NHS and other organisations who have a personal vested interest in removing safeguarding and boundaries - especially of children.

The SNP are also the party who never carried out any investigation into safeguarding at (SNP heavily funded) LGBT Youth Scotland after their CEO, James Rennie, was arrested and then convicted of being a ringleader of Scotland’s largest paedophilia network.

The SNP leadership had already decided it's people were morally superior to the rest of us. As well as knowing best. Those attitudes combined with a small pool gives you this story.

So the Scottish government has a policy of enco...

Actually there's no point trying to argue with.
