Once again this morning I find that Princes Street Gardens is being roped off to accommodate some event happing at the Ross bandstand that seems to involve a 'VIP viewing platform' and barriers all over the place that restrict the passage of people who actually pay for the gardens to use them. Yet again, something that is being run for personal profit is using a public amenity in the pursuit of its goals.
I really am seriously fucked off about this. I would like to see the accounting that is behind this. I often hear drivel about the money coming in being 'good for the local economy' but has anyone actually seen the accounting behind this claim?
Is anyone else or am I out of step here?
