Councillors who postponed Forth Road Bridge repairs until 2016 are blamed for closure crisis

Councillors who postponed Forth Road Bridge repairs until 2016 are blamed for closure crisis | Yes Campaign 2014 | Scoop.it
A DEFUNCT public body consisting of ten councillors has effectively been blamed for the Forth Road Bridge crisis.

The Forth Estuary Transport Authority (FETA) ceased to exist on June 1, when private contractor Amey took over the operations of the road bridge as part of its contract to run the new Queensferry Crossing.

Tom Tomney Vss's curator insight, March 1, 2014 5:53 PM

This is welcome to Scotland, however Scotland might not be such a welcoming place if the no campaign win the referendum debate!  With all main Westminster Parties agreed on keeping the theme of consensus politics as is with the consensus of austerity. Austerity is following in the footsteps of Thatcherite Politics. New Labour followed the line and political line of that of Thatcher.  So Scotland has a choice Ten or Twenty more Years of Austerity or Become Independent.  In respect of the no campaigns efforts to preserve the Union. I would find it difficult to defend something that does not really exist! The UK has never been truly united as We Have Endured A north south divide for decades with North becoming poorer and South becoming Richer. So I would say we have an opportunity to do something many in the North England would love to do. Become free of Westminster!  With peoples around the world giving their lives for Independence how difficult can it be for Scots to Vote Yes and X next to yes on the Ballot Paper is all it takes!  I urge the Nation to vote Yes! and become more than Nation again and become a National Family!

 I'm working with the award-winning documentary film Unacceptable Levels---about the more than 200 synthetic chemicals in our bodies and how they got there. Would love your help in spreading the word about it (via social media, writing an article, telling friends via email) or even sponsoring a screening.

Actress/activist Mariel Hemingway and Stoneyfield Farms founder Gary Hirshberg are both on board.

If you're in the DC area, the DC premiere is tomorrow night at the E Street Cinema! Tickets are available here: http://unacceptablelevelsdc.bpt.me/
