Lothian buses defends its decision to stop Edinburgh services in the face of ‘anti-Catholic' accusations from MSP James Dornan
What an absolutely stupid comment. Lothian Buses were trying to keep drivers safe.
This isn't Eire, MSP Dornan. Scotland’s national flag isn't the Irish Tricolor. If there are no buses on Christmas Day, this doesn't mean an anti-Christian bias.
How embarrassing to himself that he made such a stupid comment. It's not all about you Mr Dornan. It's all about the fact the buses were vandalised by moronic individuals who haven't a brain cell among them.
What an awful thing for an MSP to say. He clearly must be delusional.
What a t***! I imagine they chose the timing as the earliest opportunity to stop their drivers getting bricks in their faces.
What absolute nonsense.The drivers’ and passengers’ safety is paramount!
The man is not fit to be an MSP. He is either mad or bad. Possibly both.
I don't think the mindless idiots that were causing havoc have even heard of St Patrick. Is this guy Dornan for real?
An MSP making comments like that should stand down from his duty and is not fit to hold a position like he has. Does he not know how much this company has suffered and the staff?
Take your bigotry elsewhere please.
Never heard anything so ridiculous in my life. What a stupid comment.
Anti-all religions works for me.
Clearly a case of opening your mouth before the mind catches up with you.
Have this clown’s comments been denounced by his party yet?
The buses are maroon. I rest my case, your Honour.
Once again the Scottish disease and Scottish embarrassment. Bigotry and sectarianism rears its head where none exists. Classic SNP. Play any card that keeps division front and centere.
It is bad enough that people like Dornan live and breathe among us, let alone having them as elected representatives in our parliament. Scotland deserves better.
Heritage campaigners are trying to use a law dating back nearly 200 years to block the return of a "big top" circus tent during the planned comeback of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this summer
The Edinburgh Festival is great and I've missed it not being on the last two summers. Most of the year, apart from odd events, it's just an expanse of grass.
We need the Meadows so teenagers have somewhere to drink and fight safely.
Some people need to get a life. Each year the Meadows has fairs, music concerts and sports events, which cause more damage to the park and they haven’t complained about that. Just another poor vendetta.
The Ladyboys were in the Meadows years ago.
Yes, this is public land and not that of the council to do as they please. Same applies to both east and west Princes Street Gardens. All public land.
Going back to 1827, you'll probably find you can graze stock on it, eh.
1827? The year the members of the Cockburn Association were born.
Edinburgh council took away recycling bins because they were too popular
Have a similar problem around Magdalene Drive. Everyone from the area uses it to dump stuff and it is constantly overflowing.
The smarter thing would of been to empty them more often, this fundamentally leads to fly tipping and in the end costs them more! Too busy wasting money on Spaces for People probably.
