The head of a primary in the east end of Glasgow may not know it yet, but they might just be in line for a reprimand.

The school in question is used by the city council's new Labour group leader and would-be member of the Scottish parliament, Frank McAveety, for his constituency surgeries.

While attending to his civic responsibilities, McAveety espied a poster advertising the fee-paying delights of the independent St Aloysius College. He was not best pleased, and action was taken to have the offending advert removed.

It is good to see that some new Labour hearts are clearly still beating with the gut instincts of old.
