My mole was looking fairly smug this week. I hear that they administrations weekend endeavours have put them within £200,000 of a balanced budget, allegedly. (thats the price of a new big screen in SNP speak). But given the sudden commitments to Gorgie farm and to breakfast clubs and to school playgrounds and the list goes on.. I wonder just how they will manage without some folk getting hurt.
What interesting for me is that on the one hand they are saying that there are no proposals for cuts to the voluntary sector and now they are saying that some of the proposals amy be accepted. So which is right. And if there are no proposals, where did the paper proposing them come from; did the officers write it without being asked, or where theyu asked to do something that was never going to be accepted. Just who is in charge here?
