  • There is hope in honest error none in the icy perfections of the mere stylist

  •  
  • I ask every Scot to pause and reflect not on the kind of country we are - but on the kind of country we could be - we should be.

  •  
  • Plans don’t accomplish anything. Theories of management don’t much matter. Endeavours succeed or fail because of the people involved. Only by attracting the best people will you accomplish great deeds.

    • Scotland’s urban tradition can provide inspiration
    • New environmental and economic challenges
    • More of the same not an option
    • SSCI offers opportunities to innovate and deliver
    • But the line between vision and
    • hallucination remains a fine one
