An Open & Shut Box

When is a box bad? When it’s Scottish.
Finland has provided Baby Boxes to new parents for over 70 years as part of a package of child healthcare. Finland has the lowest infant mortality rate in the world. Finnish Baby Boxes are good.
Some areas in the USA have decided to copy the Finnish model and are providing Baby Boxes to new parents. The US media agrees that American Baby Boxes are good.
Some Health Boards in England are providing Baby Boxes to new parents. The BBC assures the public that English Baby Boxes are good.
Canada has decided to begin providing Baby Boxes to new parents. Everyone agrees that Canadian Baby Boxes are good.
The Scottish Government recently began providing Baby boxes as part of an overall child healthcare package. But because these Baby Boxes are produced in Scotland, you should be in no doubt that they are very bad indeed. If you set fire to them, they will burn. Nothing else in your house is flammable; it is only the Baby Box which represents a fire hazard if you set a blowtorch to it. The Scottish media is in total agreement that Scottish Baby Boxes are bad.
I hope that clears it up for you.
