I've had quite a few e-mails/calls ... mainly from several Nationalist colleagues! ... bemoaning my earlier post on the ever-elusive Scottish Futures Trust (SFT).
The main gist of the 'moans' have been - "the SFT is definitely coming", and "it has to be better than that secretive and expensive PPP option that's been used for the last decade or so".
Well, what can I say but repeat myself ... if the SFT does eventually come along and provides Edinburgh with equivalent levels of finance as the first two-rounds of school-building in the City, then I'll be the first to applaud it. Remember though that round one in Edinburgh was some £130million of capital investment and round two some £180million.
And as for 'secretive and expensive', I can only assume nobody knows about this section of the Scottish Government website?
