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

who runs this Council that does not listen?!

A group of very annoyed mothers protested outside Alex Salmonds announcement on early years investment today at the creche closures instigated by the SNP/Lib Dem administration. This cut will affect literally thousands of families as many will simply not be able to use the facilities. As one woman put it," how can I go swimming with my 5 year old as the regulations say i can't be in the pool with her and my baby".

The Leader of the Council was present. Remember the one who claims to lead a "listening council". Well I am told by one observer that she came over to the protesters and said "I am only talking to you because the first minister told me to"! And she wonders why we have concluded that its the SNP in charge on this Council.
