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

You reap what you sow

My mole (who is smiling again, mores the pity, there's nothing worse than a smug mole!), tells me that the SNP/Libdem administration are smarting at the tough time we gave them in the run up to the budget but that they feel they were able to use the Lord provost to stop us at the final hurdle.

I would not be so smug if I had had to use tactics like not sending out draft agendas, pushing through privatisation of home-care and two major consultations along with the budget, (unprecedented in many years of budget meetings to have policy papers tagged on to the budget), and having to hide behind the Lord Provosts gavel to over-come unexpected challenges in the chambers.

They may have survived the day of the budget but these things will come back to haunt them
