I still don't understand curl, even with a maths degree.

Edinburgh streets

We got a brochure through the letterbox a while ago showing an artists impression of the pedestrian-and-cyclist-friendly street layout the council are planning to install outside our front door. Lots of smiling people and cyclists on the narrowed street with two road lanes left for regular vehicular traffic and no parking allowed, obviously.

Problem is, this is the A8 at Haymarket. For some reason there were no buses shown in the artists impression, or taxis or trucks or cars. This is a road that carries over 50 buses and coaches an hour at peak times, a street with a taxi rank to provide for the railway station, shops on both sides of the road which need loading access for goods etc.

It's possible a lot of this traffic could be diverted through the residential areas to the north of Haymarket as they were during the endless roadworks for the tram project but I don't think that's really a goer.

I really dislike the current fad for analogies that link Brexit and self-harm, because it minimises self-harm and makes it sound like a foolish choice rather than the coping strategy of people in a lot of pain.
