Interviewed by STV News last night but studiously ignored by Reporting Scotland, comedian Jo Caulfield wonders if the ‘Labour-Conservative council’ might be responsible for the unholy mess in Edinburgh.
Wow! No one else has ever been allowed to think that on Scotland’s MSM. BBC Scotland has been carefully avoiding any such impression that a Labour council could be to blame for something so messy and suggesting that the Labour-Tory alliances, denied by Anas Sarwar, are actually real and creating chaos deliberately in the hope of passing the blame on to the SNP Government.
Remember, Labour voted with the Tories on COSLA to oppose a 5% settlement which the SNP Government had just funded. Was Scottish Labour prepared to have this chaos just to delay the unions in responding to the 5% offer in the hope of a scalp?
