Sometimes 'Joe Public' steps into the political limelight shooting from the hip and the heart, what follows is an example of just that. This furious young mother added these comments to her signature on the petition to stop the SNP/Libdum Council from replacing qualified teachers with unqualified staff; you can almost smell the outrage and withering contempt as you read her words.
"Perhaps the Council will do what they've done in Paisley Town Centre next - i.e. put a cardboard cut-out of a teacher at the front of the classroom with a big badge 'Imagine Your New Primary School Teacher' ........it seems the logical next step since they seem to have a fairly limited imagination. My suggestion would be to go the whole way...replace the Council with a huge cardboard cut-out, cheaper and you would get about as much reaction from them - I'm still waiting for a reply to my email, Mr Mackay, from last year"
Well said madam you speak for many.
