So is this an opt in system, an opt out system, or a can't opt out system? If the last, this is truly Orwellian.

"It will also strengthen the corporate parenting of children..." A quote from the above opinion. Hmmm, "corporate parenting" - a "named person for each child"?
Why do we need "parents"? Only "breeders" will be necessary if someone else is "parenting". We take your kids; we will indoctrinate... oh I mean "raise" them to be the best "citizens", and now the "family" or "parents" will no longer get in the way of our "advancement" and "progress". Simply put - SCARY

Wallace must be rolling in his grave. I always believed that I was descended of a free and intelligent people. Crushing to see the truth.
I obviously can't answer the question for him but I have had a browse of Barnardo's annual reports 2011- 2015/2016 and it is interesting.@Martin Crewe, could you please clarify your statement
"Barnardo's Scotland does not anticipate gaining any additional funding as a result of the bill".
I ask because I note from your 2012 accounts that you receive monies for the provision of intervention services from e.g. Inverclyde and I wonder whether you anticipate there will be no further demand for such services or whether you class income from them in a separate category to "funding", or even whether you anticipate a growth in the intervention services market regardless of whether the bill passes or not?

And he and his pet sock puppets sure as hell don't speak for any of us. :blabla:Alternatively it could be that 'state guardian' is a totally misleading term for health visitors and school teachers who already have a role in looking out for the wellbeing of our children. What is certainly misleading is the quote form the Supreme Court judgement which was a background observation not related to the specific issue of named person (technical term is obiter dictum). The unpalatable fact for Tymes Trust is that all of the main children's charities in Scotland have continued to support named person, wellbeing and early intervention as we believe it will improve the lives of those children who need support. Tymes Trust does not speak for Scotland's children's charities on this issue.
