Under this stock image from…Chicago or London…we read:
So, from Scotland’s most Conservative region, we have one GP allegedly telling the Herald that she and her colleagues have observed that the SQA and by association the SNP are driving senior pupils to having suicidal thoughts.
I mean really? Why is she afraid to come out?
Why can she not say how many and what the increase is? They keep records, on computer don’t they? Any senior pupil could show them how to get a few totals out of their spreadsheets if the office manager, also a Tory lady, is typically too dim to do.
This is a, thick as mince, pile on to the new Health Secretary and any journalist who writes such shoddy, exploitative, melodramatic, nonsense should take a good look at themselves.
And, even if there is an observable increase in the midst of this media tsunami of misinformation and panic about the SQA, might we, as intelligent adults, question its substance?
Hold your breath now but might some of these teenagers be thinking how they might take advantage of this situation? Watch the pass rates go through the roof.
