The idea of Edinburgh is a combination of place, soul and symbolic leadership of a nation

Sound of silence save the washing of hands

Today's Council meeting was mercifully short, (only 4 hours!) but that was as much top do with the lightness of the agenda than the new traffic lights the administration have installed to stifle debate!

The propensity of the SNP/Libdem administration to always blame some-one else remains their one and only strategy and they used it with a vengeance today to knock back everything they hadn't thought of themselves. They even suggested that it was Lothian Buses fault that the credit crunch had come and they should have been ready for it!
As one of my colleagues put it "they wash their hands of responsibility so often they give Pontius Pilate a bad name"!
