Although our survey is totally unscientific, we feel there has been a fairly good response. There was a rush of responses after we published our Dave Anderson suspended story.
A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the survey. There were a total of 168 responses to the survey. Of these, two gave totally duplicate answers and they were immediately next to each other so we are excluding one of the entries.
These results make interesting reading because it seems the vast majority of participants actually voted in May’s elections. Interestingly almost 100% felt let down by the SNP’s about turn on the ill-fated trams.

What is the one thing you want them to have done by the end of the year?
Again this was a free entry there were differing answers from “5 bi-elections” to “Nothing”. However, six main themes came through. With the Network Rail one coming up at the end of the survey period.

- Prevent Network Rail from banning cars from Waverley Station
- Save green space (Saughton Park, Wester Hailes, Portobello Park)
- Fix the city’s economy and explain it to the voters
- Fix road surfaces because of trams.
