Where we are and where we will be

Where we are and where we will be
The idea of Edinburgh is a combination of place, soul and symbolic leadership of a nation

We're going to (Glasgow) to the Zoo?

What are we going to do about the zoo. More to the point what are we going to do about the LibDems and the Zoo. Once again the spectre of the Zoo going west has raised its head with Glasgow Council calling for a report on a potential move.

Even if the present Zoo Council are only talking about moving some things west right now , if they are made more welcome there than they have been made to feel by the LibDem/SNP administration then it could be the thin edge of the wedge for the the Zoo moving west lock, stock and Polar bear.

Anything that means the Zoo is no longer one of our (and Scotland's) premier tourist destinations is bad news for Edinburgh and for Scotland.

And the irony is, if the LibDem/SNP administration won’t help them achieve their ambitions in Edinburgh by raising money through build some houses on a piece of land that is at present owned by the zoo and not used or accessed by anyone and they end up leaving, the whole zoo site will probably become houses! And who wins then, certainly not Edinburgh
