PostSubject: War of words   Mon May 03, 2010 2:32 pm

With the country in a parlous state it's nice to see local politicians haven't totally lost their sense of priorities.
We are likely to face swingeing cuts in expenditure by whichever party takes control of the economy on Thursday (a state of affairs that even Eck the Fish cannot prevent, much as he might want to) but Penicuik cannot rise above a pointless spat about who is paying for a pedestrian crossing.
Some blame for this lies with the Squeak (I nearly wrote 'Squawk') which proudly proclaims that it's not going to allow political letters during the campaign and promptly backs down when the usual suspects whinge that they're not going to see their names in print for three weeks.
Instant result Labour, 1 SNP, 3 (even-handed, eh!) and the other 6 wisely keeping out of it.
Meanwhile not a word about two (as far as I know) unprovoked attacks on local citizens in Cornbank in the last fortnight. Anyone thinking of walking up Bellmans Hill after dark on a Saturday evening would do well to think again.

Seems to have been a lot of violence in the town lately with the stabbing / assaults at the Cuiken a couple of weeks ago and now a soldier was attacked
on Saturday:

No doubt we will hear about how crime figures are going down (of course meaning REPORTED crime)

The assault story (the first one, not the soldier) was on the front page of the "Squeak" two weeks ago... Rolling Eyes
