Oh dear, more myopia from our elected guardians in Edinburgh.

Such irony, when just yesterday - well, 1767 - more autocratic politicians with knowledge, conviction and taste achieved the Edinburgh New Town, which was such a revelation both in planning and in built design.

They weren't just after votes, and they knew their stuff - surely the Appleton Tower is the eyesore at Edinburgh University, not the elegant Hume Tower? If only designers and architects were allowed to speak as candidly about politicians in the press.
