The sound of broken promises rings out

Its not the sound of jingles you hear, its the sound of broken promises crashing to the floor!

First the SNP say that they would "cut the quangos" on but now they have announced that they will create a new quango to run PPP, a quango that will be a private limited company with a "public limited ethos". I thought all quangos had that.. and if its a private company what makes that different from PPP as was, infact, its exactly what we have already running PPPs!

Then we hear they are NOT going to fund the Airborne initiative after specifically saying they would in their manifesto. Did they lie, no, probably not, its probably what they wanted to do, but did they make a promise they couldn't and now aren't keeping... YES!

I backed Airborne when my Labour Comrades closed it. They were wrong then but now the SNP are now just as culpable with yet another broken promise and a busted budget!
