New Year’s Day and 2018 already shows a not unexpected continuation of the Tory hubris.
Easing myself back into political watching so switched Twitter back on. Yeah I know.
Started this last week and as I don’t feel up to talking about the last 24 hours I thought I’d get it finished.
So there’s been a couple of announcements re the military today in the Conservative conference.
Detour from Scottish politics today as I see the current Westminster government are continuing their attempts to take England back to the 1950s by allowing grammar schools to expand, new ones open and introduce selection. (As if that wasn’t already happening in some Academies.)
Anyone who follows my Twitter account will know my daughter has started at her local senior school this morning. It seems that this is a bigger deal for her father and me than for her. She and a friend went off this morning chattering away comparing (slightly oversized) blazers and the obviously cool number of pockets they contained.
Today my daughter starts her transition week from primary to senior school, I don’t think this is something that happens in English schools. I’m not even sure how far it occurs in Scottish ones, but it’s something I fully approve of.
