My esteemed colleague and fellow blogger Andrew Burns has made excellent comment on the farce that is the new "traffic lights" destined for the Council Chamber but I would like to add one further thought.
As I understand it, these lights will be operated, not by the Lord Provost, but by a council officer. I already suspected that officers were running the show behind the scenes but they are now going to be running our council meetings, deciding even how long councillors get to talk.
If ever there was an example of a Geoffrey Howes famous description of Thatcher as being "in power but not in charge" it is this SNP/Libdem mal-administration.
