What a day

What a day for politics:

Leaders' debates for the forthcoming election were announced and include two parties who are not in government at Westminster nor in any of the devolved nations (Conservatives and Liberal Democrats) but don't include the party of government in Scotland (the SNP), one of the parties of government in Wales (Plaid Cymru), or any party of government in Stormont.

Dave Maddox beats me to the punch in pointing to Lib Dem hypocrisy (Alistair Carmichael criticising those who offer binary political choices while his own party is infamous for it).

Finally, I get a phone call from a friend of mine which went like this:
"Why do I never get any of your leaflets through my door?"
"Because you live in Portobello, it's way outside the constituency."
"I got one from your Lib Dem opponent..."
There's an enthusiastic leafleter who's got a bit lost then!

Mind how you go!

Completely off topic nut, have you heard that Edinburgh local politicians want to extend the new tram scheme all over Edinburgh. The arrival today of some equipment will help send out a message to the World about Edinburgh or some other Bo**ox.

Have they never heard of the axiom, if you find yourself in a hole, stop digging? Just the one hole?
