Full Council meeting today

Full Council meeting today with the Youngedinburgh Youth Services Strategy being the main focus - more information and links to the agenda and report here.

Really excellent input from all the young people present - well over 70 of them viewed the proceedings from an adjoining room via a video-link! ... whole meeting being filmed ...

There was an 'open question and answer session' between 7 of the young people and the elected Councillors ... it has to be said, that the quality of the debate was pretty impressive and I'm not entirely certain who came across best ... well actually I am ;-((

Youth 1 - Councillors 0

Was I right in hearing that Jenny Dawe said she backed the skatepark on the Meadows when she and her party have campaigned vigorously against it?

What can I say ... it is indeed true; but you surely can't be surprised??

I'm not going to dwell on it though (it is very tempting!); as I'm making a real effort not to fill this blog with party political vitriol.

There are plenty of other blogs out there full of such partisan bile ... I'm convinced, by the way, that only political anoraks read them ... and I'm really trying to reach a more civilised audience i.e. ordinary voters ;-)

My hit-rate so far suggests I'm having a modest degree of success ;-))
