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

Everyone loves a winner, except if you are homeless

So Leon won. Huge congratulations to him. That I should even know his name was a surprise to my family and even to me but its a great achievement for the lad from Whitburn.

I see the Libdems have an emergency motion up to congratulate him at the Council meeting on Thursday even though he come from Whitburn, which, when I last looked, isn’t in Edinburgh.

Why is this relevant? Well that's the same Libdems who refused to back our motion in August to mark the victory of the Scottish Homeless world cup victors because only one of them had an Edinburgh connection.

Rank hypocrisy I’d call it. But nothing new there then when there is the chance of getting some-one else's glory to cover your own inadequacies.
