Well the Scottish Senior Citizens Unity Party MSP John Swinburne has called for the return of corporal punishment in Scotland's schools.
The belt was banned from use in Scotland's schools 20 years ago. When the MSP recently raised the matter in the Scottish Parliament Green co-leader Robin Harper accused the MSP of proposing the licensed assault of pupils. Mind you it is to be expected from an MSP who on election said he had views to the left of Chairman Mao and to the right of Margaret Thatcher.
Maybe Mr Swinburne should read the Conventions on the Right of the Child before he starts getting threatening letters from parents across Scotland.
