Tonight's rather disastrous council committee meetings


Having just returned from tonight's City Council meetings, I can only say that it was not the SNP administration's finest moment.    The behaviour of the SNP group tonight at Policy and Resources Committee was playground politics and marked a new low in terms of the debate at the council.   

To move an amendment saying other councillors are responsible for a so-called “cynical dereliction of duty” simply because they don’t agree with the SNP, says a whole lot more about the SNP group than it does about anyone else.    

This sort of politically motivated and destructive type of amendment is hugely counter-productive and simply gives local politics a bad name.

Oh dear ...
