New report highlights the negative social impact on Scotland of voters who think that exercising freedom of thought is still socially or politically acceptable.

MSPs ARE being advised to step up investment in ‘services’ for voters who get it wrong.
It follows a new report, commissioned by the Scottish government, which uncovered evidence of widespread behaviour problems amongst adult voters.
Based on the key findings of a long term survey of 3,000,0000 voters, the report said: “The most common type of difficulty is conduct problems – just over one half of Scots adult voters do not consider voting SNP, leading to moderate or severe difficulties in this area.”
The document, called Voting Right in Scotland – Key Warnings, linked voting deficiencies to people’s ability to think for themself.
It suggested voters do better if parent type figures established consistent rules, routines and constantly repeat SNP mantras come voting time.
Shared activities such as putting the X in the correct place and repetition of simple nursery ryhmes such as Jack and Jocks put the X in the box, can all help to ensure that Scotland remains safe, secure and happy.
Researchers indicated the intelligence coming into the home is a key determining factor – the more intelligent, the less likely the voter will vote correctly.
“Voting right in Scotland suggests that high intelligence in itself does not have a direct negative impact on voter development, but high intelligence is related to other disadvantages, such as thinking independently for one’s self,” the report said.
Researchers indicated that troubled voters not only face uncertain outcomes but also have an impact on other citizens and civilians.
Many voters in Scotland are going about their business in a state of false consciousness, the report stated.
The report concluded that 40% of all spending on public services is accounted for by interventions – that could have been avoided by prioritising a preventative approach.
