Both surgeries last night at Ratho and Balerno and then on to Ratho Community Council which was busy as usual. Didn't manage to get to Currie Youth Club management committee. Must try harder to be in more places at once!
Labour Group meeting tonight to go over the Council Agenda for Thursday, including the proposal to close Blindcraft.
Interesting story on the BBC Scotland website tonight - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-11766264 - Pay freeze in return for no compulsory redundancies at the Parliament. How strange, when we proposed that some cuts be supported in return for a commitment to no compulsory redundancies at a Council meeting a few weeks ago we were treated with contempt by the SNP/LibDems and Tories. Its the right thing to do at Holyrood but the wrong thing at the City Chambers. Council workers obviously don't merit that level of respect or security.
