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

"I don't believe it!"

You could not make this up! At tomorrows Full Council Meeting there is a paper on Edinburgh's Economic Resilience in the present credit crunch crisis. That's right and proper. We should be receiving reports of this nature at times like this. But wait until you read it. Here are just three of the policies the present SNP/Libdem mal-administration are proposing to beat the credit crunch;
  • target food waste in council catering services
  • switch off lights
  • promote use of bikes and walking
Here we are; Capital city of Scotland, world financial centre; middle of a global Credit Crisis and the City Council response is, clear your plate, switch of the lights and walk to work....

Oh how I wish I was making this up, but sadly, sadly I am not. It is so inept it would give even Victor Meldrew's struggles to believe a run for their money
