It would appear from this article in the Herald today that I am not alone in thinking that the concordat between CoSLA and the Scottish Government is not all it is cracked up to be.
I have no doubt that the CoSLA leadership thought that they were doing the very best for local government but they were duped by an SNP leadership whose whole political philosophy is built on conflict and so were always going to create a relationship that was predicated on them blaming others for things that did not happen despite promises being made.
I have said it before and i will say it again, this thing will come back to haunt us big time and we will be portrayed as moaning and griping when the reality is we are being painted into a corner where we are forced to do the SNPs dirty work for them. This is not good news and I fear for local government as a consequence
