yesterday's Council Meeting was indeed (relatively) brief, finishing just before 1pm!
Main items of debate were the reports on the 'Future Libraries Strategy' and the 'Transient Visitor Levy' (tourist tax); with no change-of-heart on either issue by the current Coalition ...
... no political will to pursue the tourist tax any further; and a point-blank refusal to accept that they have removed over £300,000 from the libraries revenue budget across the last 2-years :-(
Gave the whole meeting an air of being in a 'parallel universe'.
Back here in the real world, a busy campaigning weekend coming up, with (hopefully) aptly-named 'Inspiring Saturday' and 'Super Sunday' ahead of me ... more details over on the Edinburgh Labour site here.
Never a dull moment ;-)
