First there’s the frightening prospect of Wee Alex’s henchwoman having up to 29 MPs at Westminster [West Lothian and Barnett will be fun], giving them the balance of power, which of course then focuses on how Nicky Caviar sees life in Scotland and here it is:
THE welfare of unborn children will come under scrutiny as part of the Scottish Government’s proposals for a named person for every child in the country.
Guidance on the implementation of the legislation, which was published last week, states that the named person could be involved with families and setting up “planning and support” during the last trimester of pregnancy. The legislation, which is due to come into effect in 2016, covers children from the day they are born up until the age of 18.
But the guidance suggests that the named person, chosen by the state, would become involved at an earlier stage – a move that is likely to raise fresh concerns about the prospect of state interference in family life.
The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 will see every Scottish child allocated a named person, usually a health worker up to the age of five, followed by a teacher.
The named person for each child would be identified about seven months into the pregnancy. Pregnant mothers will then be offered an opportunity to meet with their baby’s named person and a midwife, which the official guidance suggests should take place in the family home.
The disclosure that the scope of the proposals includes unborn babies comes as more details are emerging about how the legislation will work in practice.
The guidance states: “Where additional wellbeing needs are anticipated at birth the prospective Named Person should be involved in planning and providing supports to eliminate, reduce or mitigate risks to wellbeing.”
This would have to be done on a “non-statutory basis” because unborn children are not covered by the Act.
But the named person would play a “lead role” in drawing up ante-natal support when the anticipated needs of the new-born baby are not generally available from routine services, the guidance states.
Charming. Merkel’s mentors, Bertelsmann and the Bruderheist, must be absolutely delighted that the Scots, not content with just socialism and the welfare state, now want to upgrade to national socialism and eventual eugenics.
