I am quite shocked at how quickly the main routes in and around Edinburgh shut down yesterday. By lunchtime, Edinburgh buses had been cancelled. The obvious effect of this was to leave thousands of people stranded. Between Edinburgh and Glasgow, the M8 simply ground to a halt, with horror stories of people being trapped in freezing cars for hours on end. Need a poo? What do you do? Run out of fags? Kid that is pissed off and hungry? I am sure all human life was there. It is unacceptable that a major motorway gets totally shut down. Heads must roll. It is not as if they were taken by surprise.
