Edinburgh Festival:Drams, Jams and Trams
Festival Monsoon has arrived and bus journeys take twice the time due to the new tram roadworks. The project, like the Scottish Parliament, is over-budget, late and get and mention the word ‘tram’ to any two people in Edinburgh and just wait for the expletives. It won’t be finished until 2012 (they think). There's even a Fringe show called The Silence of the Trams. The Daily Record reported that work had been briefly halted when they foundsome 400 year old skeletons. Turns out they were workers from when the project started.
