Scottish Labour’s track record in failing students with an exams fiasco

Popping up like a wee dinosaur trying to copy the Broonasaurus, Lord McConnell tries to act tough in the way his former pupils in Lornshill Academy, Alloa, remember so fondly.

He should know all about this. In 2 000, 36 students considered legal action against the SQA and they had actually sat the exams.

They argued that the SQA was in breach of the European Convention of Human Rights.

Their lawyer wrote to the FM and he said that the convention was a legal matter and not one for the Scottish Executive.

BBC Scotland reported at the time:

The action against the SQA is the latest development in the exams crisis which hit students in Scotland. A report on the fiasco published last week concluded that the problems were worse than previously thought and that the results system came within a whisker of collapse.

Did he get it fixed or go? Neither.

  3. Don’t think McConnell would like to read this piece.

    https://brignews.com/2020/06/04/stirling-scottish-labour-members-publish-piece-for-the-independent-labour-publication/

    “Despite the evidence showing our loss in support has consistently been mostly from independence supporting people, our party wants to compete over a section of the working class with the Tories.”

    “This is problematic even before we discuss the ideological considerations and how important self-determination is to socialism. As a result, we argue for a position that, while respecting that the majority of our membership is unionist, realises we must unite working people around socialism and not add to the divide and refuse people their right to self-determination.”…..

    ….Finally, Brig asked Deery and Ireland what advice they had for students looking to get involved in the Labour party.

    “Get involved, regardless of your position on independence. We need to shift the party position here for sure, but join us in fighting for socialism, worker ownership and radical change that the working class needs, and not just the politics of flag changing and waving.””

  4. McConnell, rewarded with a HOL’s seat paid £300 a day, by the BritNat state for services to said state, ie shafting Scotland, he sent £1.5 BILLION BACK TO WESTMINSTER, saying ‘nowt to spend it on in Scotland’. I despise that man more than any other in politics in Scotland. £1.5 BILLION, nothing to spend it on, not even, education eh!

    Utterly criminal, the SNP should NEVER allow him or the Labour UK branch in Scotland forget that blatant FU to Scotland and the people of Scotland.

    How dare he even make comment nevermind demands re the Scottish Gov SNP ministers, who have spent YEARS working to repair the damage and neglect left behind by HIS Labour UK branch ministers. Despicable.
