I hate to say I told you so but today's out burst by Kenny MacAskill on the Edinburgh Schools fiasco is exactly what I meant when I said the "new relationship" between local and national Government would be one of blame.
The Scottish Futures Trust is a busted flush before it starts. The allegedly £3b given by the Scottish Govt. for infrastructure is for everything, not just schools. It includes flooding and housing and roads and all the others capital costs the Council faces. The Lib/Dems have no idea where to turn and their coalition partners will, of course, side with the Government and so leave the LibDems out in the cold. No-one knows where to turn so everyone starts blaming everyone else.
I hate to say I told you so because its the kids who will suffer out of this fiasco.. and that's not acceptable.
