Illiberal Scotland

The BBC reports:

Parents who fail in their responsibilities are to be forced to attend counselling sessions and could face prison.

The education minister said a parenting order pilot scheme will get under way in Scotland next April.

As I have commented before, the Liberal Democrat influence on the Scottish Executive has not had the effect of curbing Labour's authoritarian tendencies. That is a pity.
