Yesterday morning I posted two polls on Twitter – both are above. The first related to policing and the second broadly related to Gaelic education, but their purposes was really to raise the issue of local government funding in Scotland.
We’ve had no hint of a settlement from the SNP Government (yes, I know it is early and the Tories are part of the problem), but it is fair to say that most folk expect bad news if the nationalist elite can ever make up their mind. More cuts this year to local government funding may mean that things we cherish will come under huge pressure.
Raising awareness of this issue was the purpose of the polls. The polls were never intended to be scientific or the basis for any change in my views or those of anyone else.
If anyone genuinely felt otherwise, please accept my unreserved apology.
