Two thoughts crossed my mind as I read the personal attack on me by the Leader of the Council in today's Evening News:
I now know what Denis Healey meant when he said “being attacked by Geoffry Howe is like being savaged by a dead sheep”.
And I am right when I argue that Lib Dems only want to be in power, they don’t have a clue how to use power. As a consequence, in Edinburgh they have lowered themselves to the playground politics of the SNP, who are clearly now leading this Council. To say that the SNP are in charge in Edinburgh is a sad conclusion to come to but its my job to tell the truth about the administration. It was doing just that which probably led to today's personal attack and I guess that there will be more to come.
