In the Herald yesterday:
The £10 a week payment for low-income families with children under six has been credited for lowering the need for food banks in Scotland compared to other parts of the UK.
Scotland is the only area of the UK that has seen a marked decrease in the number of emergency food parcels from food banks in the Trussell Trust network in the past six months, compared to the same period in 2019.https://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/19744574.trussell-trust-scotland-sees-staggering-drop-levels-people-needing-foodbanks/
The Herald report suggests:
We see here another clear piece of evidence that the SNP is the only large party in Scotland with a commitment to act on behalf of the poor to reduce their suffering at the hands of the Westminster government and, contrary to the ill-informed claims of supposed leftists such as even Frankie Boyle, a truly leftist party.
This Herald report also illustrates that though it and the Scotsman are predominantly campaigning against the SNP, unlike BBC Scotland, their output is not monolithic with, sometimes, younger writers able to offer quality journalism against the dire propaganda of the likes of the old grey men, Tom Gordon, Iain Macwhirter and others.
