After many months of consultation and development and many hundreds of comments from the public and various organisations we finally launched the Edinburgh Labour Manifesto for the local elections on 3rd May this morning. The launch event went very well, ably chaired by Lesley Hinds and a couple of fine contributions from Labour Group Leader Andrew Burns and Scottish Labour Leader Johann Lamont. Well attended too by the media and associated photographers (the photo outside with us all holding manifestos in the air felt a bit naff, but hey, these guys know what they're doing. Don't they ?) Well ahead of the other parties, once again we're leading from the front and hopefully the manifesto, which can be read on this link, will create much debate and examination of the ideas that we've brought forward, in the final few weeks of the campaign.
