Today is an election day in the Scotland. We are voting for new MSPs (Members of the Scottish Parliament) and local councillors.
For the Scottish Parliament Constituency vote, the BBC is providing a free txt alert system. (Choose you constituency, then reply to a text message to confirm that you want the message).
This year the council elections will be interesting as this year Scotland is moving from First Past the Post to the Single Transferable Vote (or proportional representation). Instead of putting a cross for the appropriate candidate, we are numbering the candidates with 1 for the candidate that we want, a 2 for the candidate that we want next, etc.
Lets see what the election brings about in terms of a potentially new government.
for the minutes of the meeting that the petition to get the 18 increased in frequency, increased hours and extended to Fort Kinnaird was handed in.
It does not mention anywhere that a petition had been handed in!
