Council leader Jenny Dawg has proven that she, together with her ousted FibDem colleague Phib Wheeler, were lying to the citizens of Edinburgh by saying that the Tram is “on time and on budget”. The lard-arsed councillor should now be writing her letter of resignation.
Today the new Chief Executive of the trams fiasco tells us that his project to build one tram line for half a billion of our pounds is a shambles and they are still speaking money with their contractors when we have been told for months and months that the project was on time, on budget and all the money side is tied up with having a fixed price agreement. Is this more lies?
Although Richard Jeffrey is well respected, his comments to the Evening Chip Paper leave some questions:
“It might be appropriate to conduct a post-mortem on this and it might well lead to some public hangings â€“ then again, it might not, but at the moment it’s not helpful or productive in terms of getting the trams built. We can’t gauge what, if anything, has gone wrong until the trams are up and running.”
Surely it would be a good time to carry out a post mortem of the project so far, as he has just come in as boss to make sure that the same things don’t happen again. When the tram is finally finished, if it ever is, we could be talking 2012 or 2013 when the people responsible will all be yesterday’s nobody and not able to pay for the havoc they have installed into this city.
It is interesting that throughout the whole article, there is not one mention from either Jenny “Dawg” Dawe or the new trams czar Gordon Mackenzie. Why nothing from these liars?
