For Whom The Bridge Tolls

An interesting article in Wednesday's Courier has been sent our way by a Dundee correspondent. We are, as ever, grateful for contributions to the site. is the address to use.

Anyway, we'll take some of the best bits from the article, and reproduce them for you here.

THE LIBERAL Democrats pledged their support for The Courier’s Scrap the Tolls campaign yesterday when they launched a petition to abolish the £1 fee to cross the Forth.

Until yesterday, the party had been sitting on the fence in relation to the Forth Road Bridge toll.

Liberal Democrats sitting on the fence?!? Surely not!

It gets better.

Dunfermline and West Fife MP Willie Rennie said he had been reluctant to jump on the anti-tolls bandwagon because of concerns about congestion.

Really?!? This wouldn't be the same Willie Rennie who centred his Dunfermline & West Fife by-election swindle victory on a petition against an increase in tolls, would it?!?!

I mean, there cannot be any photographic evidence of Willie being against tolling on the Forth Road Bridge, can there?

The article then continues at pace to point out that the person in charge of tolling on the Forth, is none other than our favourite road safety campaigner and property market guru, Ravishing Tavish-ing Scott.

So, Willie, when will you be lobbying your own party hierarchy on this one then?

Rather than duping the electorate with a "petition" which always seems to rear its head at election time?

The e-mail address is at the top, or you could leave a comment to let us know.

We'd LOVE to hear from you.
