  1. Brown Bin Collection Charge

    Edinburgh council are introducing a £25 a year charge to pick up your brown garden waste bin I see. Apparently 67,000 will opt out so where are they going to put their waste? Dump it somewhere no doubt. My local councillor (Labour) blaming the Scottish Government for cutting the council...

  6. NHS Trust Fined £2m

    Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust is fined £2million over safety breaches. What good does this fine actually serve? Taking £2m from an NHS trust that is already massively underfunded seems counter productive to me.
