"Healthier School Dinners" - really?

I'd love someone to explain to me how this Scottish Government announcement on "Healthier School Dinners" squares up with what's currently happening here in Edinburgh?

Its just yet another example of 'national rhetoric' giving voice to some policy idyll whilst 'local reality' is totally, totally different.

... never mind, it will all be okay when we sign up to the Single Outcome Agreement at the Full Council meeting on the 29th May - money will flow from the Scottish Government for all our needs and national politicians will never again blame local government for failing to deliver their agenda :-(

It 'would' be laughable if it wasn't so serious ... just you wait until January 2011, in the run-up to the next Holyrood election, and see who gets the blame for not delivering class sizes of 18-or-under for all Primary 1, 2 and 3 school children :-((
