Apologies to regular readers, and even to first timers here at aitkensedinburgh for the last of posting for the last 5 days. Sadly things at home have meant that blogging has had to be on the back burner but I am back now at the keyboard and ready to blog once more.
If I had been blogging over the weekend however, I would have commented on this story about the placing of a lamp--post right in the line of one of the best views of Edinburgh up on Calton hill. I would blame in the SNP/Libdem administration but I know they didn't actually decide to put it there and they have agreed to move it.
But it is a parable for this administration's lack of vision. So concerned with the minutiae that cannot see the bigger picture. All their moaning about the budget, despite the £52m we left them in the back) and their response; no post-its. That's right. Month one of the new budget and already there is a diktat from on high banning staff from buying "non essential" stationary like post-its. Like thats going o shift the budget deficit they have now created by their one off cuts that have now come back to haunt them.
I may be back blogging with enthusiasm, but I do continue to despair at the incompetence of this SNP/LibDem (mal) administration
