Next Thursday, October 27th, the LibDem-SNP administration votes whether to sign over a large swathe of Council services to be delivered by private companies over the next decade. Whether or not you believe privatisation can ever be a good thing, I trust you believe that our services should be democratically accountable, and that elected politicians should keep their voters informed about what they are planning.
Next week, all the party groups will have their huddles to decide amongst themselves how they are going to vote. I reckon we have one last week to persuade them to put a halt to this and at least hold an open debate with the public over whether this is the right way for Edinburgh to go.
If you want to get your Councillors to think again, then please contact them to give them a piece of your mind. The Council’s web site has handy contact details for all of them, and there’s even some nice pictures of Jenny Dawe and Stevie Cardownie for you to look at.
