Transport Iniatives Edinburgh (TIE), the group promoting a Rail Link to Edinburgh Airport scheme has spent more than £440,000 on PR. The main beneficiary is said to be Media House, set up by an ex-editor of The Sun and the money from TIE came mostly from central Scottish Executive funds (aka public money).
(To be fair, this story probably gets prominence in the Herald because it's believed that if the Edinburgh rail link goes ahead it will push it ahead of Glasgow airport. I haven't seen them chasing the money for the M74 Extension or East End "Regeneration" Route so much.)
A refinancing of the Private Finance Initiative deal between NHS Lothian and Consort "Healthcare" will not be open to the people paying for it. "Commercial confidentiality" means that the only part of the deal made public is going to be the headline-grabbing drop in daily parking charges at the new Edinburgh Royal Infirmary from £10 to "just" £7.
