Caltongate Council Panto back for another season..........2010

"Its not happening because the price is too high" Tom Buchanan the city`s economic leader (so we are told)
but remember this is the man who thought the Haymarket Horror that died this time last year was going to be good for the city..   

 Maybe Mr Buchanan should take a reality check....this recent letter to The Scotsman on an earlier Evening News story would be a good place to start...

A NEW World Trade Centre building is heading our way, according to development and business leaders (Evening News, October 7).
Excuse me for holding my breath, but I'll believe it when I see it. And the same goes for the skyscraper hotel at Haymarket, the giant Ferris wheel at the Waterfront, Caltongate and so many other pie-in-the-sky ideas which have never got off the grouWe're in the middle of the worst recession in decades, we can't afford to provide decent schools to prepare our kids for their future, and yet our council and business chiefs will gladly get together to discuss ideas that will never, ever see the light of day.

If only we had some way of harnessing all the empty words spoken by these daydreamers, we'd have enough hot air to keep everyone in the city warm through the coming winter.
