They know no shame

Back in the office today ... e-mail inbox bursting at the seams! Oh, the joys of modern technology :-(

As well as all the e-mails (and far fewer letters) been trying to catch up on the press cuttings from the past week - couldn't quite believe it when I saw this story from Saturday's Scotsman!

It's the bit that indicates that:

"Kate Dean, the Lib Dem leader of the city council, confirmed yesterday that she would be taking part in the protest march through the centre of Aberdeen" ....

... which really gets me - that's the same Council Leader who has just voted through all the service reductions and cuts.

Absolutely unbelievable.

Proof-positive that Libs really do know no shame.

Actually, I'm with Midlothian SNP councillor Colin Beattie who is quoted in yesterday's Scotland on Sunday as saying:

"Some councils just have to grow up. Every council in Scotland has been given more than enough money by the Government. People just have to start taking responsibility for things."

Couldn't have put it better myself ... wonder if they'll hear his plea in Edinburgh's City Chambers?
