Clearly, at both a local and city-wide level, I very much welcome today's about-face on the school closure consultation programme.
It does appear - although Council Policy cannot be made by press statement - that the whole programme is to be abandoned forthwith. Great news.
It's a victory for all those parents and school communities who spoke up and made their views very clearly known to the politicians in power.
But, there are very serious questions to be asked about how the whole process has been handled - or I should say, mishandled. Today's not the day to go over them - I'm just glad public pressure has paid off ...
... but I will come back to those questions of process, as frankly I'm finding it hard to see how the present crowd who are running the show can ever agree on anything after this fiasco?
