Computer programmed to bring results as given by teachers into line with expectations.
Resulted in 120,000 being downgraded. "To retain credibility" said Sturgeon.
Problem is that poor areas suffered more than rich areas.

Twitter full of kids and their parents telling how it has affected them.
Kids dreams shattered and being defended not only by the SNP but their gardening wing otherwise known as the Greens.

One tweeter saying that some schools make the prelims harder than the actual exam as a wake-up call.
He then added that the complete lack of standardisation had come home to roost.
John Mason said this justified downgrading results.
Obviously logic not one of Johns strong points.

The fact is that these results are normally distributed and the "estimated" results had grades that were too high.  The actual results every year can be adjusted if the grades are too high.

Individuals can appeal and many will do so.

Swinney should have walked after the 'blended learning for a whole year' disgrace.  I'd say he can't survive this but he will.

Nobody disputing that but this 'model' used is flawed.
Poor areas downgraded twice as much as the rest.
Even long time SNP supporters/activists calling for her to go and take Swinney with her.

Quite a lot of strong anti SNP sentiment on here

"SNP disaster"
"SNP misrule!"


I'm a Londoner, don't really know what's going on in Scotland.
But from down here she & the SNP "look" like she's doing a better and fairer Job of it than the Tories who have been
running Westminster for a decade+
(SNP = Free higher education, Free prescriptions, Better overall access to healthcare in Scotland compared to England)


What are these 'Disasters' you refer to ? and how do they compare to say Failure to quarantine UK Airports disaster,
or Brexit Planning disaster, or Trade Deal Negotiations disaster.


What is this 'Misrule!' you refer to and how does it compare to say "The illegal proroging of parliament misrule"


As I said, I'm a dumb Londoner, dunno what these SNP disasters and misrules are.
I'm wondering if you're just making it up because it suits your views or is it real?

Please shed some detail on your assertions.

Thankyou in advance.

The opinion polls/leader approval ratings suggest exactly the opposite.

Escapee Scotland has the highest excess death rate under the management of the SNP
I would call that misrule
( plus they refused to respect the democratic referendum on EU membership , Stugeon should be on trial and sentenced for that alone , misrule

I am sure there are. However, asking a few random folks in Edinburgh how they feel about the First Minister isn't comparable to national opinion polls conducted by professional companies. Besides, the Holyrood and Westminster voting records for the SNP are truly incredible.

I agree with PP. Its truly incredible that so many people can vote for a party led by Sturgeon although having Corbyn or Johnson as alternatives could explain that.

"There are more Scots in England than Scotland

That's a bit like saying "Jimmy Saville does a lot of work for charity, That's all you need to know"

Or "Jesus died on the cross for your sins, that's all you need to know"


My experience has been that when someone says "That's all you need to know", they are trying to avoid facts
which disagree with their opinion.


I'm going to guess this is another same old, same old..... Don't look at all those facts, look at only this one.

When: 06 Aug 20 16:29
That's not relevant, if you're quantifying the SNP result as 'truly incredible'. Tories have a stronger vote in England than the SNP vote in Scotland. Maybe you got away with spouting this type of propaganda before I regularly posted on Politics.
By:

Lol, you are comparing the vote of a party (tory in England) to a party (SNP) that don't even stand for election in that country?
By:
Cider
When: 06 Aug 20 16:34
Yes that's right, the comparison is the leading party in their respective domestic country. Most people would be surprised to see that Tories were more popular in England than the SNP in Scotland, reading your propaganda.

You wouldn't quantify the Tory result in England as truly incredible in a million years. Propaganda.

When: 06 Aug 20 16:37
Lol, All normal sensible unbiased folks would compare the votes of two parties in a country where they both stand for election, which in this case is Scotland. Btw, the Democrats got more votes than the tories in the 2016 USA electionsGrin

When: 06 Aug 20 16:41
You referenced opinion polls which usually try to estimate the popular vote. Tory performance in England is a very fair comparison to SNP performance in Scotland. Nobody would claim the Tories are popular in Scotland, or that they can challenge SNP for the popular vote.

Exactly, so the equivalent is opinion polls in England only. The propaganda is that Scotland hoovers up the popular vote in Scotland, until you realise that Tories hoover up an even bigger share of the vote in England.

Standard deflection tactic. Tories were more popular in England than the SNP was in Scotland. Doesn't suit your narrative, or the 'truly incredible' claim. Facts can be a little inconvenient can't they.

Lol, Deflection? The thread is about the SNP but all you wish to talk about is the tory vote in England?
