I do believe COSLA have just put out a News Release (this afternoon) whose content is very, very significant.
It follows their 'Leaders' meeting earlier this morning when they discussed the collapse of Icelandic banks ... the News Release mainly deals with this issue, and this is obviously what the BBC have picked up on.
BUT - have a look at the last three paragraphs on 'school meals' ... the last paragraph, in particular, is code for 'We may have signed up for the school meals commitment, but we now believe we don't have the money to implement it and want to renegotiate the deal'.
Well, I won't say it - but follow the links ...
And do have a quick read at paragraph 4, on page 6, here ... escape hatch or warm words?
