Defence Review implications for Edinburgh

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.
