Edinburgh credit crunch?

Council News Release out today, which reads to me like the beginning of a 'softening up' process before the 2009/10 budget round commences properly in a few weeks time - BBC have also covered the story here.

Its all well-and-good to blame some of the current local, financial difficulties on the 'credit crunch' ... but I'm certain all the Opposition Groups on the Council will be looking at the forthcoming budget detail very, very carefully.

... 'credit crunch' or not, I'm fairly certain the financial challenges within several Council Departments are still causing their own problems, precious little of which has been solved since last May - despite all the promises to the contrary?
