I’m in Forth ward so I do not have any independent candidates to vote for today, which is a shame. I don’t think national political parties best serve local decision-making. Have you seen the leaflets? All the ones we’ve had are dire. Basically: “We’re not the other mob”. Poor show.

Anyway, if you’re lucky enough to live in Leith ward, you can vote for Any Mackenzie. I can vouch for him. Drinks in the Monkey. Good guy.
Non-party political and I think the council would benefit from some independent voices.

Apparently there are five or six independents standing across the city. Check your local list!
