Bonkers values of the SNP


Prisoners serving sentences of less than a year could be given the right to vote in Scottish Parliament and council elections under plans outlined by ministers.

Meanwhile notorious criminal Del Banks, who has committed 68 offences, has been jailed for the 25th time. He was sentenced to three months for stealing 17 DVDs from Morrisons in Perth two days after his release from his previous sentence for assault. He is estimated to have cost taxpayers £500,000 in court, social work and policing costs.

If, as is likely, he is in jail when the Scottish parliamentary elections and local elections are held, under the SNP proposal he will be able to vote.

Instead of wasting time solving spurious problems – banning ‘sexist’ gingerbread men at Holyrood is another – how about the PC SNP focuses on the real ones, such as the NHS, education and, last but not least, the 6,000 Scottish children who will be homeless this Christmas?
