Will they walk the walk

I welcome Jenny Dawe's comments on Princes Street, where she says that "the time for talking is over", but as ever the SNP/Libem administration stop short of real action.

Private sector comments that "the biggest challenge is overcoming the 'myriad' of different owners on Princes Street" are spot on. But there is a solution; the Council uses its Compulsory Purchase Powers backed by private cash to get the City to where we it need to be. That way, the Council does more than talk, we lead.
Mind you, this is not news to regular readers. Its exactly what we proposed for the budget meeting which the SNP/Libdems, in their usual fit of pique, refused to discuss.
