Council of Europe outlaws Scottish government’s anti-family fascist plan

by | 28th, July 2016

To Scotland, where the council of Europe has outlawed a local fascist plot. The Scottish Government wanted teachers, State-approved workers, doctors – whoever – to treat all other parents and guardians as suspects. 

Since 2014, the Scottish government passed a law that “every child in Scotland should have a named person – such as a teacher, social worker or health visitor – to look after their welfare up to the age of 18.”

No need for parents. The State is in total control. It has the final say.


A flagship government plan to assign a state-appointed figure to oversee the welfare of every child in Scotland has been blocked after the Supreme Court ruled that the controversial named person’s scheme was unlawful.


Judges said the proposals breach rights to privacy and a family life under the European Convention on Human Rights.

Simon Calvert, spokesman for the No to Named Persons (NO2NP) campaign, adds:

“It’s wonderful news for mums, dads and children all across Scotland who no longer have to worry about this unjustified invasion of their private lives.

“To many of them the named person scheme felt like a legal battering ram to gain access to their homes. The court has taken sides with ordinary families and put the Scottish Government back in its place.”

Sense prevails. The Scottish State recoils.

Scottish Deputy First Minister John Swinney insists the campaigners’ bid to scrap the named person scheme has “failed” as amending the wording of the law could still allow it to go through.

He said it would still be “implemented nationally at the earliest possible date” once changes have been made.

“Ministers remain absolutely committed to the named person policy, developed over several years in consultation with a wide range of individuals and organisations working across Scotland, to support children and families.”

The good old SNP, eh.
