8.50am Friday, and I've just listened to a 5-minute package on Radio 4 which was enough to make you weep ...
... Radio 4, at this time of the morning, has an audience-reach of some 10million people - that's right: 10million people!
And, you've guessed it - why would Radio 4 be talking about Edinburgh at this time on a Friday morning - well, it could only be the tram project!
And the presenter, James Naughtie - and who can blame him - introduced the whole sorry saga as if it was some sort of joke ... followed by the journalist - Colin Blane - actually including an excerpt from an upcoming Leith panto that is indeed making a real joke of the tram project :-(
What an advert for Edinburgh :-((
