The fastest u-turn in local government history

Liberal Democrat Voice reports on the swift u-turn by Argyll and Bute Council, who having tried to ban a nine year old girl from taking photographs of her school dinners and blogging about them, found themselves being tried by social media.

The Never Seconds blog has received widespread publicity whilst, at the time of writing Martha Payne has managed to raise £44,574.86 for Mary’s Meals, an international movement that sets up school feeding projects in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education.

The whole sorry saga is covered in detail here. It is difficult to know what Council officials thought they were doing treating a nine year old in such a cack-handed way.
