    While England debated free school dinners, the Scottish Parliament passed legislation making it a legal duty on local authorities to ensure that free items such as tampons and sanitary pads are available to “anyone who needs them”. It will be for the country’s 32 councils to decide what practical arrangements are put in place, but they must give “anyone who needs them” access to different types of period products “reasonably easily” and with “reasonable dignity”.

    Is this what the gradualist reformists mean by socialism by piecemeal, one thing at a time…

    It was specific to the UK and that was made very clear in the content. Hispano Chuck is comparing with the USA  which is very different.

    AJ. My tweets are protected. So I don’t get into lengthy arguments, that end up with me saying something Twitter deem abusive, who then suspend my account. Hispano Chuck, can’t see my tweets.
    On the plus side, I’m so pleased with the unexpected but sympathetic, and engaging reply by Hannah Kristin, to the Party tweet.
    My reply, would be to mention http://www.wspus.org here, maybe? For the benefit of our US followers, US sympathisers , US readers and Hannah. YFS

    AJ. Done. Thank you. I posted the link on Twitter, Hannah replied to me, with a thank you. I wonder if Hispano Chuck should see this? It would mean someone other than me tweeting it, for him to respond too? Let’s see?
