A feasibility study into a high-speed rail link between Glasgow and Edinburgh has been commissioned by transport chiefs in the West of Scotland.
The implementation of a maglev link between the two cities would cut journey times from fifty to just fifteen minutes. Of course, a the idea is pure fantasy. As long as the SNP are in power, at any rate. They're already set their sights on abandoning the tram project here in Edinburgh. They'd rather spend that money on the road network. Not very green, are they? And you thought the Tories were the party most keen on cuts! Wrong! The SNP are mad for cuts. They even want to cut Ian's job. What will actually happen, though, is anyone's guess. As with every other issue, the SNP went into the election broadcasting a multitude of ideas. They've implemented not one. Instead, they've announced a raft of reviews and studies, wasting even more money than they promised.
What a mess they're making. I cringe every time I see Alex Salmond on the television. His smarmy smirk is enough to put anyone off their tea, even life itself.
Roll on the next Scottish parliamentary elections! The sooner, the better! Between now and then, however, I'll continue to hope and pray that the SNP forgets all about what is good for it and thinks about what's good for Scotland.
