The Scottish blogosphere is awash today with re-shuffle mania ...
... and whilst clearly the First Minister didn't pay any attention to my earlier post back in February ;-)
... I think he has taken the right action today in changing his Education Minister. I've got absolutely no axe-to-grind with Fiona Hyslop as an individual, but the SNP's education policy is a complete mess (few would deny it!) and it does indeed need some fresh thinking.
Time will tell if the right man has got the job - if he starts arguing for the concordat and the accompanying SOA processes to be scrapped (they are at the root of all these problems), then he'll get my support!
... mind you, I won't be putting any money on it just yet :-(
