I have been saying for some time that the Libdems are too feart to fight for trams (see e.g. here and here) and that they would pay a price. And I have been proven right, Their fear to fight has meant that Local paper Evening News, who are pro trams, have turned against them because, instead of building alliances, the Libdems have slagged them off because they have said the road works are going to be tough for motorists, which is just stating the obvious.
It takes an astonishing level of political incompetence to annoy hard won allies in the media who would be willing to help you sate you case on one of the most difficult but yet most crucial policies for this city. You could not make this up but sadly, its real and our city, Scotland's Capital, will suffer as a consequence.
