School-run par­ents blasted for ‘fat weans’

Evening Times - - FEATURES -

A CITY coun­cil­lor blamed par­ents who in­sisted on drop­ping off chil­dren at school gates for cre­at­ing a city full of ‘fat weans’.

Bail­lieston coun­cil­lor James Coleman made the out­burst as he slammed driv­ers who park dan­ger­ously near schools across the city.

Cllr Coleman told the Bail­lieston Area Part­ner­ship par­ents driv­ing to the school gates were caus­ing prob­lems for kids.

He said: “That’s why we’ve got so many fat weans. “These peo­ple are drop­ping off their weans then they’re sit­ting there for an­other 20 min­utes, then they come back and they are sit­ting for half an hour wait­ing on them.”

He was speaking as one of the East End’s top cops claimed teach­ers reg­u­larly face abuse for mov­ing driv­ers.
