On the buses: May Ferries, president of the Educational Institute of Scotland, provides a steer for the union's election campaign, which was kick-started in Glasgow on Tuesday. Around 150 buses in all parts of Scotland will carry the union's campaign message, with visits to key marginal constituencies such as the Scottish Secretary's Stirling seat.
Meanwhile, as part of its ongoing offensive against planned cuts in Glasgow, Willie Hart, secretary of Glasgow EIS, has written to Bob Gould, the leader of the council, suggesting a joint approach to the Scottish Labour party leadership seeking a commitment that an incoming Labour government will carry out a review of local government finance. If such an assurance is forthcoming, Mr Hart says, the council should impose a moratorium. The EIS plans a major "march for education" in Glasgow next Saturday.
