Time to send them a message

Just in case you doubted the basis of my condemnation of the current politicians in charge of the City Chambers, over the CAB Edinburgh fiasco, have a look at the 4th letter down (here) in today's Evening News ...

... in relation to the plan to shut 4 of the 5 CAB local Edinburgh offices, I'll quote directly from the SNP/Lib-Dem politician in charge:

"The changes mentioned in your article are as a result of operational changes on CAE's part. This was based on a decision made by the board of CAE and we were pleased to grant them an additional £15,000 last year to assist".

Oh dear, one can only assume this letter was sent to the local paper before the CAB Edinburgh (CAE) Board changed their minds under intense political pressure.

But at least we know that intense political pressure didn't come from the SNP/Lib-Dem Coalition running the city - they were happy "to assist" in the closure of 4 out of th 5 local CAB offices.

As I said at the time, the whole plan was "a totally crazy proposal" and yet it was supported by those who currently run the City Chambers :-(

It is beyond doubt time to send them a message.
