The “Fire and Rescue Framework for Scotland 2022” is a classic of the Scottish National Party Government genre—all jargon and graphics. Page 7 has a kaleidoscope-style graphic that sets out the SFRS’s strategic priorities, which include the need to “grow up loved”;
“sharing opportunities, wealth and power”;
“a globally competitive, entrepreneurial, inclusive and sustainable economy”; and making
“a positive contribution internationally”.
Rather than that exercise in jargon, do the people of Scotland not just want firefighters to turn up and be there when they need them?
