I've recounted before (here and here) how the only things that used to encourage me to visit Edinburgh in the 1970's and 1980's were the zoo and the castle ...
... and how I seriously worry that the City is actually going back to those days :-(
Well, it appears I simply cannot be correct because things are actually a lot worse than I anticipated and we're potentially about to lose the zoo from the City completely :-((
... indeed, there is a dark rumour stalking the City Chambers here in Edinburgh that another City Chambers 55 miles to the West are rubbing their hands in glee at the prospect of nicking our zoo!
Unfortunately, I believe, that there is actually some truth behind all of this ... its that third law of classical mechanics again I'm afraid.
