Last Tram to Unionist Hell – Tories and Labour go for a ride, then jump off at Haymarket –TramKarma!

This was a Unionist party vanity project from the beginning, in conception when they were in power, and implementation when in opposition by collectively outvoting the minority SNP government in its first term.

The project has subsequently descended into farce, but one that has wreaked untold damage on the economy and the image of the City of Edinburgh.

Lesley Hinds, Labour Councillor and Jeremy Balfour, Tory Councillor formed an unlikely liaison, went for a ride on the tram project, and jumped off at Haymarket, to cries of disgust and derision from the people of Edinburgh.

Gordon Mackenzie, LibDem Councillor, squeaks ineffectually on the sidelines.

Lots of other people walk away with lots and lots of lovely money - our money ...

The Edinburgh Trams – a Labour, LibDem and Tory shambles

The Edinburgh Trams project, misconceived and doomed to fail.

The previous Labour/LibDem coalition conceived this folly.

The SNP vigorously opposed it before they were in government and after.

The Tories compound the Labour/LibDem folly by refusing to back the SNP   government on cancellation of the project.

Now we have a high-profile resignation,(David Mackay) and a train wreck of an interview of Councillor Gordon Mackenzie, LibDem convenor of the ill-fated project, who can offer no explanations, no figures, no completion forecasts, but is resolute in one thing only - he won't resign.

God Help Scotland if we let any of these people - Labour, LibDem or Tories - back into government in Holyrood in 2011.

Labour wrecked the UK economy while in government.

The ConLib coalition are busy compounding their failure by their ill-considered and economically lethal savage cuts programme.

Vote SNP again in 2011 and save Scotland - and your future and the futures of your children and grandchildren.
