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

They have seen the light: Labour works!

I haven’t posted as I was recovering from an 11 hour Council meeting, yes 11 hour, yesterday. The long agenda, 14 delegations (representing 20 groups), and loud protests at the door were hard evidence of this SNP/Libdem administrations incompetence.

They also have no vision. I showed the Council the “Budget headlines” page from her leaders report and I asked her asked what, if any, of those items constituted a new or original idea. Silence, a sigh and then the immortal words; “do we need to have new ideas, in this time of consensus politics, surely if things are working we should just carry on doing them”.

So despite promising at the previous Council meeting that we woulds “see their vision in the budget” and condemning everything we ever did, the SNP/Libdem administration have now admitted that their vision is to do what we did because its works! I am delighted for the city but if that's the case, why did the libdems not join us in coalition, or was that really just about power and nothing to do with policies.
