At the Council meeting on Thursday I asked the leader if she believed the SNP version of the Government grant Edinburgh recieved this year, (which has risen by 5.2% or £37.5m for this year), which is that this is the best ever local government settlement or the version of one of her senior councillors who sent a e mail to staff talking of a "tight financial settlement". "Who was telling the truth?," I asked.
Like a true Lib Dem she said they both were!
Trouble is, the whole SNP/Libdem administration applies the same philosophy to any decision they face. For every question they have at least two, often opposing, views. Might be populist but doesn't make for good, clear leadership and decision-making
