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

Friday, 28 March 2008

A gubbing is the only way to describe tonight.

Even without a shocking display from the referee Edinburgh would have lost to Cardiff Blues tonight. Although the referee seems to penalise Edinburgh for breathing too hard, we were the architects of our own downfall tonight and there is no doubt that the better side won.

My lad wanted to go with twenty minutes remaining. My Presbyterian genes kicked in and I refused to leave, reminding him that we had paid for 80 minutes and we were staying for 80 minutes. In my mind I was thinking “its character forming for the lad”, but in my heart I wonder if his character needs just quite so drastic a formation. Maybe he was the wise one after all...

These Conferences that you take credit for are talking shops and naval gazing . Get out and talk to the Electors and take The Labour Party's message to them direct. How many leaflets do you deliver and how many doors do you knock ???

I think you have put this on the wrong post but no matter.

You clearly have not attended any of these conferences because if you had you would know that they are the very opposite of navel gazing and will form the basis of serious campaigning in the long haul that is ahead of us.
