Many Hands Make Light Work
Alex Neil - the SNP MSP for Airdrie and Shotts - is the latest person to lend his support to the campaign to knock some sense into North Lanarkshire Council (NLC).
Which is good news - because it puts other MSPs on the spot to say where they stand.
So anyone living in the Airdrie and Shotts constituency might care to drop Alex a note - as a local MSP he is in an ideal position to take up people's concerns with North Lanarkshire Council.
The facts of the matter are clear - after the collapse of the Edinburgh 'Wilkinson' case there is no valid reason for NLC refusing to settle these outstanding cases.
The legal arguments in North Lanarkshire are exactly the same - yet while Edinburgh has settled North Lanarkshire continues to drag its feet.
First of all it the council was 'defending the indenfensible' - now it's a case of 'delaying the inevitable' - but for no good reason.
