I see that my favourite local paper is reporting that everything is now stitched up (almost!) and 'Lord Provost and all' are decided ... they could well be right, but it is worth remembering that none of this is actually approved until the Full Council meeting (agenda here) has finished on Thursday this week.
... and also worth repeating that it will take the Tories (or at least one of them?) to abstain for the Liberal Lord Provost nominee to be successful ... and even if that happens, thereafter the arithmetic is 29/29 with the casting vote likely to be required on many, many occasions. None of it can happen though unless one Tory (at least) decides to initially prop up, even if for one vote only, a Lib/SNP coalition.
It won't be a dull 4-years that's for sure ...
