SCOTLAND: Class warriors


The Scottish Socialist Party office in Glasgow has been inundated with requests from teachers for campaign packs for school pupils holding mock elections.

One teacher phoning from a school in the Gorbals told the party that she has been unable to persuade any of her pupils to represent any party other than the Scottish Socialist Party.

Another teacher, from an Aberdeen school, commented: “It's funny, Tommy Sheridan is the only politician that the kids have heard of.”

It seems the SSP is the only party with cred in the classroom.
