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

Then the people spoke

Tonight our neighbourhood partnership, which I chair, came of age. The people in the audience expressed their view on the so called "Fairer Scotland fund" and they were angry. Not at the fund as such but at the sheer incompetence at how it has been handled.

One woman said she felt cheated by the top down narrow criteria set by the Edinburgh partnership, which is chaired by the SNP/Libdem mal-administration.

Another told of how she felt all the work she and others had put into creating a genuine local plan was lost in one decision.

A third spoke of her anger at a process that was not clear and the more it was explained, was less and less clear.

It was controlled and clear, but it was anger. And it will only get worse
