Post Budget Day Blues

Its always the same. You build yourself up for the big event, put in the time, the energy, late hours revising and re-revising your plans, poring over endless sheets of figures. Then the day arrives, you've got butterflies in your stomach, sweaty palms. The sense of anticipation builds, the nerves jangle. How will it go ? How will I perform ? Will I convince others of the merits of my argument ? And what happens ? Yep, you've guessed it....... The Great Budget Debate (pantomime) goes exactly as predicted with votes cast along party lines. Political theatre ? Certainly. Great drama ? Not really. You had to be in Glasgow for that, apparently. Oh well, that's the budget over for another year although we were happy with our proposals, as referenced in other posts, and how they linked to the Manifesto so expect to see some of the ideas resurfacing over the next few weeks.

Edinburgh East Labour Party Quiz tonight. I'm taking my Dunce's cap just to be on the safe side.
