Silly me. There was I think we had made progress on the Number 12 bus, (I know its a very local issue but it is what matters to my constituents and its demise symptomatic of a wider malaise), but lo and behold it is being cut anyway! So yes my motion to look at other option was passed yesterday at the transport committee but that will now be to restore something that is gone rather than keep something we might loose.
What's more galling is that this has all come about because the SNP/Libdems refused to debate this at full council, insisting that it be moved immediately to transport committee which meant that by the time it got here, the plans to cut it were ready to be implemented before the report comes back, where as if it has been debate at full council then the report would have been back before the service was lost. This is typical of an administration who cannot plan further than how to avoid a discussion or body swerve a difficult choice.
