Surgeries were relatively quiet last night and managed to get to Ratho Community Council which covered a wide variety of issues including the soon to be ex 48 bus service. Some discussion about possible timetable problems but generally a sense of resignation. Its frustrating when people feel unable to influence the decisions that affect them most and sure enough the Council report outlining the changes to this and other services was duly noted by the Council's Transport Committee today although Lesley Hinds the Labour spokesperson did manage to get cross party agreement for making representations to the Transport minister. Was also reminded last night to check the Ratho Community Counsil website for news of what's happening locally and its really good.

Spent most of tonight phoning complete strangers asking them which way they will vote on 3rd May. Really, its no way for a grown man to spend his time ......
