I'm fairly stunned at the Defence Review (as announced this evening) implications for Edinburgh ...
... with both Dreghorn and Redford barracks closing, it's hard to under-estimate the impact this will have on the local community: for one thing, I'd have thought there will be a serious question mark over the long-term viability of Colinton Primary School? --- not to mention a myriad of other local services :-(
I obviously include myself in this rhetorical question; but did no-one in Edinburgh see any of this coming?
Sadly, it appears not.
