If any constituents, colleagues or other contacts really do need to speak to me - then the mobile would be the surest way to track me down. I will also be periodically checking e-mail.

Well, tonight, it appears that the SNP locally are actively planning to walk away from the Nat/Lib Coalition, that currently runs Edinburgh Council, within the next 18-months and certainly before the May 2011 Scottish Parliament elections ...
... the rationale is clear, if not twisted --- get out and blame all the ills-of-Edinburgh on the Lib-Dems before the national poll in May 2011; and hopefully thereafter bolster their collective position for that year's election-day, and the following May 2012 Local Government elections.
Never mind the Nats' role in everything up until then --- the plan is simply to just walk away and leave the hapless Lib-Dems carrying the can for the lot?
A Coalition Partnership "founded on the democratic principles of trust, equity, openness and fairness" ... I humbly suggest not :-(
