City Council Meeting
Meeting of the full Council today (all 58 elected members). Main issues were a motion on dealings with companies who have contracts supporting Israeli settlements in Palestine and whether or not the Council should be doing business with them (obviously not !) and a motion about the ongoing refuse collection workers dispute, now 14 months old. The rest of the business really didn't justify a 3.30 finish but that's what happened. Left a bit of time for campaigning in the Liberton Gilmerton by-election. Door knocking was very productive and Bill Cook's campaign seems to be going well. Meeting of South West CLP tonight.
