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

It's not complicated but somehow to them it is...

In the run up to the 2007 election I argued successfully for CCTV at what is known locally as the Craigentinny shops, a street of local shops that are the nearest we have to a retail focal point in that area. It had been the target of some significant disorder so CCTV was seen as a deterrent.

Despite agreement being reached in February 2007, it was only this week that I received notice that the cameras were to be finally installed. I cannot decide whether its incompetence, conspiracy or sheer bloody mindedness but whatever it is, the folk who have suffered have been my constituents and so whilst i am glad the cameras are now in, I despair of the SNP/Libdems ability to deliver anything else for the city if that's how difficult they find the instillation of two CCTV cameras
