Another broken promise..

In the Libdem Edinburgh manifesto, a commitment was made to produce a fully costed and financially viable plan for the south suburban railway by summer 2007.

Today we see that their plan was to ask the SNP govt for more cash. Like that was ever going to happen! Having been knocked back, they will now "look at more options" which is a long way from a costed plan by 2007.

What I want to know is why they wrote the promise in the first place? Had they no idea about what it would involve to get a plan in place? Its a classic indication of why they are so incompetent in power. They have no idea of how to deliver what they promised, they just said whatever they thought would get them votes...

We should have seen it coming...
