Weekend of Campaigning

Have spent most of the past weekend speaking to people on the doorsteps of Forth Ward.

It's clear that local issues are uppermost in many people's minds - not least the funding reductions from the previous CRF/SIP arrangements to the new 'so-called' Fairer Scotland Fund.

There may be some doubt about the 'exact' amount that these monies are being reduced by - but no-one is anymore denying that such reductions are taking place.

Even the politician in overall charge at the City Chambers (a Lib-Dem) has accepted that reductions, to the value of several hundred thousands of pounds, are indeed happening - see the 4th letter down here!
