Trams - how bad it is how bad

I attended a public meeting on trams this evening at the Leith Dockers' Club. Most of it is the stuff of political debate. There was a stunning exchange, though, when a chap from the West End Community Council asked about the Final Business Case made for the Tram Project. Most of the audience knew what he was talking about - they quoted sections in subsequent exchanges - but the reaction of the politicians was interesting:

Malcolm Chisholm said he'd never heard of it.

Phil Wheeler said he hadn't read it.

So a Labour MSP who helped force the Tram Project through Parliament had never heard of the Final Business Case.

But, hold the side page:

The guy in charge of delivering the trams has never read the Final Business Case.


Mind how you go.
