A few days I ago I suggested that the Libdems were too "feart" to stand up for trams. Well the opposite is true of their SNP coalition "partners" who are only to ready to stand up and slam the tram despite knowing that their populism is inherently destructive for the city.
It is not good enough to stand back and let officials take the heat. This project needs real and visible political leadership otherwise it could still go seriously pear-shaped. On this, as on so very much else, the Libdems are failing the city and in doing so, they are failing the nation. They are just not up to the job.
