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

They fly the flag then wield the axe

I see the SNP/Libdem administration in Aberdeen are cutting schools to balance their budget
eir SNP/Libdem colleagues in Edinburgh are, of course, following the same course. At one of the local primary schools in my ward 12 staff left and were not replaced. At another the head teacher said that the "cuts were the worst she had ever known " and she worked through the Tory devastation of our public service. And it gets worse with this administration putting flags before schools. I really fear for our children's futures and I speak as a parent as well as a politician.
