Tram to Haymarket decision overturned

Seen that headline before?  Well not quite.  Last week the decision was to go remove the high risk Haymarket to St Andrews Square section for the time being and to get out of the disastrous contract.

Today, the Council, following John Swinney's withdrawal of part of the funding - and the change of mind by the SNP councillors - voted, by 28 - 15,  to plough on to St Andrews Square.

I certainly hope I am wrong and that it can be done within the £776m figure - though the decision carries no certainty on that point.

I'll give more details later.
