Oh dear. The SNP have been caught out at the very first hurdle when it comes to keeping promises they made in order to win votes.
In their first budget since taking power in Scotland they have decided not to keep their election promise to scrap all student debt. John Swinney, the SNP's Finance Minister then came up with the lamest of excuses when he then tried to pass the blame for this on to other political parties.
He told MSPs: "I know there is insufficient parliamentary support for student debt servicing or for loans to grants, and we must therefore prioritise funding on policies that we can deliver and which will be supported by parliament."
The SNP have discovered that pledges made from the safety of opposition need to be properly funded and costings worked out in advance. I wonder how many students were caught out by the SNP's lies on this issue. Hopefully the electorate will have learnt that the SNP are not as honest as they claim.
