Haven't they moored a gurt big cruise ship on the Clyde as temporary lodgings for those overpaid Green Cultist non-entities, er, oops I mean, "international statesmen"?
 

Failing education system, being told it’s failing - engage the SNP/SG SOP’s and throw money at it hoping it will go away safe in the knowledge that the uneducated, non enquiring majority of people will only see/hear that “but we are spending £800 more per child to improve the system than England”.

Sound-bytes from the propaganda machine instead of actually dealing with the problem happy to throw good money after bad with no recourse, at least comments are quite enlightening but will be ignored or crayoned over by the Natbots.

“SNP MSP, and former teacher, Kaukab Stewart said the Scottish government's investment was "paying off".
"School buildings are in the best condition since records began, teacher numbers are higher than they've been since 2008, this year the number of Higher passes was at its highest since devolution, the number of Scottish students accepted to university is at a record high, and much more," she said.
"As we move out of the pandemic and into recovery, it is vital that our schools are put on a footing to continue to get the best for Scotland's young people."
Closing the "poverty-related attainment gap" was an SNP priority and a further £1bn would be invested in the Scottish Attainment Challenge during this parliament, she added.”

So the buildings are in good Nick and higher passes are the “highest since 2008” which the sceptic, or realist, in me thinks has a lot to do with the lack of formal examinations during Covid lockdowns and the SG/SQA shenanigans.

They can’t half polish a turd……..

Can someone remind me, as I forget, have we actually seen the final un-redacted report into the state of the education system that was postponed due to the last lot of Scottish Elections.

And to prove Ms Kaukab Stewart's point she should have used an outstanding picture to prove how much better they are since records began (last week).

25.000 of the buggers all told. Why let a global pandemic get in the way of flooding a major city with hordes of freeloading, useless buggers? They can always lock us down again after Circle Jerk 26 has achieved fcuk all and the media circus has left town. :rolleyes:

why do you think obergruppenfuhrer sturgeon hasn't said a peep about covid for a few months? this is a woman who weaponised and monopolised her daily propaganda broadcasts to keep her mug in the limelight and to cause as much trouble as she could then nothing! this COP bollocks was always seen as her opportunity to be seen with the bigwigs for once but after its been and gone it'll be back to normal with lockdowns and everything else to undercut Westminster and to put herself back into the anti English/Tory limelight with the cult

Agreed, but your use of a Nazi rank to insult Sturgeon undermines your argument.

At least the Nazis were efficient. :twisted:

Hasn’t said anything about Covid because it isn’t working out so well just now so better just ignoring it under #wheestforindy.

To my knowledge she has been side stepped for pretty much anything to do with COP26 as it’s a U.K. gov gig, something she wasn’t happy about before it was postponed due to Covid.

Basically a gobby town councillor put in her box would be the best description unless anything has changed that I’m not aware of.

They have indeed and that will be a great place to stay when the lurgy spreads amongst them

I'd be laughing my arse off if by some chance a wee time portal opened up and either Kretschmer or Prien sailed up the Clyde in their U-Boats and sent a couple of tin fish right up the nether regions of one of the biggest and shiniest targets ever to present themselves into their periscope.

They weren't, but those who pointed this out and complained were sent Kamping thus it looked efficient! :)

In current terms medium sized, outdated hull type, scruffy and manky around the waterline- rusted from being laid up through Covid and registered in I think Lithuania. Judging by the one I saw going up river.

I'm guessing two things - no reputable cruise line would risk their current vessels and the budget didn't run to anything decent, so maybe more for proles and minor dignitaries.

True dat, With some big names having pulled out and others looking wobbly. Ms Sturgeon may get over her pique at not being centre stage if too many more significant worlds players pull out and she can call 'flop'in a pointy kind of way.

It must register as a concern that HMQ spent a night in hospital, fingers have to be tightly crossed that the Boss can still make it.

Back to the ship(?) It would be a guess, but potentially comfortable, secure accommodation/ base for the additional police gathering from various English forces, putting them close in to the venue, leaving the local force to deal with the geographical challenges of protesters blocking parts of Glasgow that local knowledge would be key to.

If the on board bars are open, that saves any shore bound excursions into the drinking dens (aka Biffa Bars) of inner Glasgow for any off duty coppers, though a lost opportunity for cultural exchanges in a more relaxed environment.

In any normal law enforcement agency that’s what you might expect. Unfortunately Police Scotland has already announced that it has surrendered to trouble makers and will not be enforcing the law but it’s first priority is the comfort and safety of rioters, trouble maker and other people making the lives of taxpayer a misery - and making it more expensive for us.

Sound-bytes from the propaganda machine instead of actually dealing with the problem happy to throw good money after bad with no recourse, at least comments are quite enlightening but will be ignored or crayoned over by the Natbots.
