City LibDem loses it

It's not just a lack of political sensitivity; it's the absence of any common sense. The Scotsman reports:
A COUNCIL leader sparked fury yesterday when she said was spearheading the return of ceremonial robes to set councillors "apart from the hoi polloi".
Jenny Dawe, the leader of Edinburgh city council, and George Grubb, the lord provost, have asked for a report on plans to restore the traditional red and black robes, and their accompanying tricorn hats.

What century does she think she's living in? Of course, I am just one of the said hoi polloi - so it may be presumptuous of me to criticise.
