She is Scotland’s only independent parliamentarian but Margo MacDonald certainly delivered for Edinburgh earlier today when she managed to force the Scottish Nose Picker minority government to get the city extra cash under a move to recognise its unique status as Scotland’s capital. This is something that our former leaders Rasputin Aitken and Teflon Don Anderson not to mention the current Lib-Dem leader Jenny Dawg have been speaking about for years but with no action.
The City’s Labour and Lib-Dem MSPs put their petty party politics before their constituents and of course voted against Edinburgh getting the cash so Twat of the Day is shared between labour’s Sarah Boyack and Malcolm (friend of Bunty) Chisholm together with the Fib-Dems Mike Pringle and Margaret Smith.
Margo sitting up in the cheap seats clapped and laughed when Swinney told her Edinburgh was getting the dosh. A one woman coup.
It will be interesting to know if Jenny Dawg and her Fib-Dem buddies are tonight burning the midnight oil scribing a press release for tomorrow’s newspapers saying it was “us wot did it. Honest Guv” as that seems to be the only major works that have come out of the current council. The real news doesn’t seem to get out or is hidden in agendas and obscure websites where one wouldn’t expect to find it.
What does that Margo do all day…..
