As with the EURef, it might be worth taking a look at the protagonists on either side of the Named Person’s arguments to see who it is you are siding with.
So, against the legislation are the BBC, the Daily Mail, the Daily Express, the Telegraph, the Scotsman, the Herald, and Unionist politicians who were originally in favour but decided to speak out against it when they saw a chance to score political points during the election campaign.
Those in favour of the legislation include most Children’s Charities, the majority of people who work in childcare and education, and many children who have experienced the benefits in the four regions where the scheme has been trialed.
Looking at it that way, I know which side I’d prefer to be on.
