Kezia loses it as Royal College of Midwifes calls for Scottish baby-box to be rolled-out across non-Scottish parts of UK!

It’s a bit rich after months of sitting back watching the Yoon media and parties attack the baby box initiative, for the RCM to start raving about it now. Remember Kezia’s sourpuss reaction  – ‘This looks like a massive missed opportunity’ – and these headlines, including the Sun’s ridiculous expert warning that the cardboard box could burn if left near to an unguarded flame!

Yesterday, across Scotland’s mainstream media, the RCM call was headlining. From STV:

‘The Royal College of Midwives has published a new position statement setting out its support for universal roll-out.  It says the boxes can be a “positive significant investment” in early years and may contribute to reducing inequality. Baby boxes were made available to all expectant mothers in Scotland from August last year.’

The baby boxes are, of course just part of wider Scottish Government strategy to improve the circumstances of the newborn and of their parents. See:

    Even Mr Chris Deerin in the Ruth Davidson fanzine, The New Statesman, wrote with unequivocal praise for the scheme at the time. It was in a piece that was generally slagging off the SG.

    Kezia was not the worst. That title has to go to Kaye Adams, whose phone in was inviting people to help her kick baby boxes apart.

    The Sun’s flame test on a baby box would probably have ignited asbestos! Realistic, it was not.

    This initiative costs £8million annually – the kind of sum Kezia could find down the back of a sofa on “I’m a Celebrity …”

    It is a fact that no matter what the SNP do for the good of the Scottish people , Unionist politicians like Dugdale , Rennie , Davidson , will try their hardest to score political points on every progression and every success by turning it into an SNP baad story . With the MSM 100% behind them and giving them a loud voice , their job to take down the SNP government should be easy . Let’s hope the vast majority of the Scottish electorate wake up to the fact that because of the horrific in-fighting , and the fact they will never stand up for Scotland and make it a progressive country, Unionists couldn’t run a race never mind a country ! .

    It would be good to get a comment from ‘Colonel Yadaftie’ that is if anyone can find her.

    ps I saw this handle for Ruth Davidson by another poster on ‘Indyref2’ who I am most grateful to.
