The people have spoken now the new administration must listen

Resource Description: 

The Edinburgh elections show more than anything else that it was effectively a referendum on the tram project.      Whatever political spin the politicians try and make the fact it is, as the fate of the Lib dems shows, and of their doomed figureheads most closely associated with the tram, Jenny Dawe and Gordon Mackenzie, this was the voice of the people speaking about this project and the light it has shone on a self serving, paralysed political class within the city.

The bringing down of The SNP figure most closely associated with the project Steve Cardownie, despite the party itself showing more strongly, confirms tthis.
