Friends and readers.
It has come to our attention that not only have the City Council in the guise of the very inept and incompetent Lesley Prada Hinds actually suggesting that more money be spent on the massive loss making Tram System by building the 1b [Granton line] and 1c [Newhaven line] something which they had already been granted money to do but wasted, but with one of her many hats on Prada Hinds as chair of the Transport Committee has managed to push through up to two million pounds for a feasibility study, yes you could not make this shit up, and worse still supported by the full Council.
And friends it gets better who do you think is assisting Prada in her endeavours why none other than senior official GREG WARD, beyond belief but true. Sucks has been consistently asking for an investigation into the activities of WARD and his links to firms acquiring Council contracts. We would be interested to know who cops this money wasting contract and if they are pals or relations of WARDS.
You don’t need money to tell you that Prada Hinds is on a mission to try and win the Edinburgh North and Leith seat at next years Holyrood elections, she has more chance of winning the Lottery. you don’t need money to tell you that the Tram system will never make any money regardless of how many more lines you build, even if you are robbing money from Lothian Buses. And we hear that Prada is refusing to give evidence to the enquiry, wonder why? It should have been a public enquiry then there would have been no place to hide.
£145 million and you can multiply that for an extension they have already been paid for, if wee Nickie frae Govan has any sense she will tell them to go fuck themselves when Prada comes calling with the begging bowl. £2 million for a feasibility study that’s likely to go to one of WARDS personal pals, and at a time when up to a 1000 jobs are potentially to go from the City’s payroll. Disgraceful and tasteless, but there is no stopping Pradas ego trip. If jobs are to go then WARD and Prada Hinds should be top of the list.
