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

leadership is not a word they understand

At yesterdays Full council meeting, the SNP/LibDems refused to support a motion supporting the South Suburban Railway, a piece of local infrastructure that most people think is a good plan. Instead they said they would just like a committee to discuss it.

They say they want it to happen but won't commit to it. They also didn't have it in the Single Outcome Agreement that is suppose to be our master plan for the city. Yet now they are saying they are committed to it.

This, as will all major projects requires leadership, real, political leadership. Their performance so far on the south sub is one example of why that phrase is not in their lexicon.
