safer streets but nothing to do

I see that the police are working hard to ensure that the summer experience for the city is not one of crime and bad behaviour. Good on them. There's no doubt that Lothian and Borders finest o a great job and are very creative in their approach. That's why Labour started funding police officers for specific tasks. (90 in all) and its good that the present administration now agree that's a good plan despite initially voting against the funding for those officers.

The summer would, of course, be even better for all, if the SNP/Libdems had not cut the funding for the GO4IT programme, Scotland's biggest programme of activities for young people. But hey, anything to balance the books, never mind the consequences for those they are support to serve.
