On Monday, I praised the SNP Government for bringing forward proposals to bridge the gap between health and social care. This is a policy straight from the Scottish Liberal Democrat manifesto and will move us closer to a position where individuals get the best care possible targeted to their needs.

While welcoming the reforms put forward by the SNP Government, a line in their press release caught my eye.

“We are keen to avoid the pitfalls that can accompany centrally dictated, large-scale structural reorganisation and staff transfer.”

Being a great believer in localism I couldn’t agree more with this. However, are the SNP Government pushing ahead with plans for a centrally dictated, large-scale reorganisation of Scotland’s police force at the moment?

Perhaps Kenny MacAskill should listen to Nicola Sturgeon on this one.

Pitfalls of large-scale reorganisation avoided by SNP… well, except the police
