That Labour Record of School Building

Dunfermline High School. A building falling to bits. A building which should have been rebuilt, or even refurbished, to make it meet its pupils' needs well over a decade ago.

Who was in charge at the time? Labour, in administration in Fife Council. Who was arguing for a new Dunfermline High School for years? The Liberal Democrats, including now MSP Jim Tolson. Who are delivering that new High School in administration in the Council after Labour were kicked out? The Liberal Democrats in coalition with the SNP.

That certainly makes Labour's rage about the cancellation of the school building programmes in England look very false and opportunistic indeed. It's quite typical of their behaviour in opposition.

For an English perspective of this, read what the lovely elephant has to say.

Their record also involves the huge burden of PFI debt, which is ravenously eating up education budgets across the country.
