Some Edinburgh councillors see sense on trams

A u-turn today by Labour and SNP councillors in Edinburgh sees the city's tram project given the go ahead to the city centre.

Only Tory councillors continued with their posturing - despite being unable to explain who would foot the £160 million bill to tear up the existing contract - their preferred view.

Report here.

Delivering a sensible solution to the trams debacle - inherited from the previous administration - is a huge achievement for the Lib Dem led council. The outcry from Edinburgh people over last week's decision to cut the line short shows how badly the other parties got it wrong. Hopefully this will be reflected in how the Lib Dems are perceived when voters in Scotland's capital elect a new council next May.
