What do you think of the G8 summit? Bryant Dunnet, Pleasance: Itâ€™s positive for Edinburgh but I donâ€™t like the fact that the city has to pay for it." Siobhan Canavan, Tollcross: "I donâ€™t like what they do because they donâ€™t listen to the poor nations. They should go somewhere else." John Rifferty, Leith: "I think itâ€™s going to help Scotland despite the expenses coming from the Scottish budget. The money should come from the UK budget instead of the Scottish." Giuseppe Albano, New Town: "Any publicity for Scotland is good and I hope it is also good for the world. It is a good thing if itâ€™s not self -congratulating." Dani Maupin, Dalkeith Road: "Iâ€™m for the G8 summit even though I think they wonâ€™t change anything. But I guess, it is better they take the trouble to meet and speak about poverty than not doing anything." Iona Smith, Leith Walk: "I think it is positive for the world. The good side of it is that the media is talking about it all the time. Itâ€™s a way for people to get informed about world issues."
