Labour's education spokesperson in the Scottish Parliament - Des McNulty - has come up with a barmy idea - if the party wins next year's Holyrood elections.
He wants to throw money at teachers - through a new early retirement and 'winding-down' scheme - to allow older teachers to work part-time in their final years - without losing their full pension rights.
Now at a time when everyone is banging on about 'fairness' - how ridiculous is it to suggest that one of the better paid groups of council workers - should be singled out for such special treatment?
At the moment Scotland's teachers enjoy better pay and conditions - than most other local government employees - for ten weeks a year they're not even required to be at work.
So why not have scheme for the lower paid groups - who always lose out when it comes to improving or enhancing people's pension packages?
You don't hear of many classroom assistants or school cooks or home carers - getting extra years added to their pension - or being allowed to retire early.
'For the many not the few' - is a favourite Labour campaign slogan - someone ought to point that out sharpish - to Des McNulty.
