Aw, well, that's the only worthwhile part. Cancel everything then the council can spend the money on more silly construction projects gone on too long.

Good man, security tried to stop me getting home because rugby fans walk that route, this would be just as nippy. Nothing against it, I just feel Edinburgh is all about portraying an image and can't even fix the potholes in reality.

That’s a shame, just when the people of the city need a bit of light relief from all the economic woes at the moment.

Think they should just march in anger to the clowncil headquarters. They seem to put off everything that doesn't make money -fireworks and now this.

And this eejit and the rest of his party want a second referendum! It makes a lot or sense to me NOT to give you £20million. You could have put it to better use. Sadly Scotland would never make it alone.

Over £35k they are talking about significant increases. Tax benefits on electric vehicles to be scrapped. And a whole host of other revenue raising to be brought in.

The Lane was a very popular club from the mid to late nineties. Situated at Edinburgh’s West End, off Queensferry Street. The club DJ, Jon Flowers, played 70s to modern house, groove and a bit of techno. It was a cracking place.
