This is going to impact on every single person I represent.
Some people won't be happy, I get that,
but I want the vast majority behind this.
To see this as a positive thing.
This community centre is just that.
It's the centre of our community
and we're not going to give it up without a fight.
Did you hear they've changed the planning application?
Oh, not more flats.
All for students now.
It could be I set aside a proportion of the flats for local investors,
if that's of interest.
Me and Stuart are going to come and live here.
-Do you meant that?
-If you'll have us.
Of course we will.
Look Eileen, there are only two choices here. Progress or decay.
My friends and my family deserve better than
the crumbs off someone else's table.
I need you to make sure that Planning postpone any decision
on the Lowtherhill Project
until after I've had a chance to take a look at it.
Can you do that?
Your best is good enough for me. OK, thanks.
Kelly-Marie? DOORBELL RINGS
Can you phone round all the regular users of the Community Centre?
We'll need to make sure we get a lot more people to commit.
Now, you also pick up some posters for me.
Yeah, I'll drop round the money in a wee minute. OK, bye.
Oh, you're nice and early.
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Picked up the hand rails last night.
Isn't that a waste of time and money?
Well, it's not your time or your money, so just be grateful.
Right, I'll get on all right.
I'll get it.
-And why wouldn't I?
Well, it's hard to know what you're going to do these days -
shake my hand or stab me in the back.
I'm doing this to secure a decent future for our son.
Yeah. Well, so am I.
I've left a list of things that need to be done on the kitchen table.
Well, you need to chase up your prescription from the pharmacy
and make a follow-up appointment for my dad at the Health Centre.
-If you can't manage it, I'll do it at lunchtime,
but I need to go.
Oh, dear. I worry about her, all this running around.
She's never happier than when she's fighting.
One of the security guys let me in.
I told him that I was a consultant to the Planning Committee
and I wanted to see the model.
I can't quite square up the new measurements with the old footprint.
Listen, if you've got any worries, you can speak to Alex.
I thought you were the Project Manager.
The Councillor wanted to have a look at the model.
I can't quite see how you're going to fit in everything
The intention is to use the adjacent scrubland here.
A lot of people might say that the changes you've made there
are just there to placate the protesters.
The only protester I ever hear is you, Councillor.
Oh, no, a lot more people coming on board, don't you worry.
Listen, I'll leave you to it.
What is it you've got against me?
It's just who you're in bed with, that's what concerns me.
Well, obviously you've got the wrong impression about what Frank Paton
-and myself are trying to do here.
-Then enlighten me.
We're working to turn a depressed area into one that
stands a chance of thriving.
Whilst lining your own pockets.
I don't deny there's money to be made,
but for everyone, not just the investors.
If you could see what we're trying to do, you'd be with us.
-So, send round a copy of the updated plans to my office.
-I've got nothing to hide, Councillor.
Right, well, I'll look them over before tomorrow's meeting.
-The one I'm calling.
-With what agenda?
I won't know that till I've seen the plans, will I?
6.30, Community Centre. Don't be late.
So, I was looking online at legal requirements
for any planning application. It's quite complicated, isn't it?
Can be, aye.
How'd it go?
I don't know why, but I think I'm starting to get under his skin.
I was telling Mr Lindsay I was doing some research last night.
-Do you know what I found?
-Did you have a bat survey done?
-It's a legal requirement.
-According to who?
That guy Murray? He's been doing a bit of research.
-If he gets an expert in...
-What does that even mean?
Delays. A month, maybe more.
Callum's went and spilled orange juice all over his trousers.
We're going to be late for school now.
You cannae take your eyes off him, honestly.
-Eh. Sorry, I've not managed to make those calls yet.
-Oh, why not?
Because she's too busy getting the wee guy ready for school,
-Yeah, me too.
Aye, well, some single mammies don't have a da on tap
-to take up the slack.
-Ma! Eileen, sorry.
I've got that money for the posters I mentioned.
Can you not wait till she gets into her work before you get on her case?
-They're ready now, so I need you to go and pick them up.
Eh, right, I'll go and get them once I've dropped Cal off at school.
Can someone else not drop him off?
Can someone else not pick up your flamin' posters?
I need them ASAP.
Eileen, I need my kitchen redecorated ASAP,
but nobody's going to get off their bum to do it, are they?
This isn't about some wee domestic wrangle, Scarlett,
this is about the...
the future of this entire community.
I'm calling a meeting tomorrow and we need a big turnout.
That's why I need the posters.
I need you to work late tonight.
I'm going to a hairdressers' do at The Athenaeum Hotel.
I did mention it to you ages ago, remember?
Oh, I don't believe this.
She's been talking about it for ages.
It's just I don't often get to go out much these days.
-Anybody want a cuppa?
-No, she's away to get her posters.
I feel bad now.
Look Kelly, she's the one that's taking on the world.
You need to grab the chance to party while you're still young.
Right. I've had 20 of these made up,
but they're not going to be enough on their own.
I need you and Kelly Marie to get out into the street
and get in people's faces.
The revised plans. How did you swing that?
Alex McAllister promised to have them sent over.
He probably thinks it'll placate us.
That's where they're wanting to expand, covering that area there.
So who owns that?
I'll need to check with the Land Registry.
-There's no need. But thank you.
E,, the Book Club were over at the Oyster having a meeting,
so some of them are going to support us.
No, we need all of them. Do they know what's at stake?
Nobody gets to opt out here.
We'll chase up the rest of them.
Aye and Stevie said we can put up posters in the Ship.
Right. I'll take one for the Health Centre
and then I'll go to the council offices.
You guys get out and speak to everybody you can.
I don't want anybody saying, "Oh, I didnae know there was a meeting."
Unfortunately, every time they re-submit,
we have to get folk to sign up again.
You know we're behind you on this.
But the new plans do include a Health Centre proposal, right?
As things stand, yes.
If they demolish this place before the new one's ready,
they'll move us to Moss Green.
Yeah, and all we get is disruption and inconvenience
when this Health Centre's doing fine as it is.
Question them now.
Demand a clearer picture of what their plans are for the future.
All I want is what's best for my patients.
Mrs Palmer, sorry to keep you waiting.
These are not hitches, these are minor inconveniences.
The bat situation's under control
and I'm on my way to catch Donachie now.
Box clever. We don't need any more hassle.
She's a small fish in a very large pond.
As we speak, she'll be trying to schmooze the Committee,
hoping to divide and conquer.
-Will she succeed?
-She's a novice.
That's not what I asked.
No, she won't succeed, Alex, no.
And you're sure we can still deliver on the Health Centre?
Look, I've driven through much tougher deals than this one.
I still don't see how we can afford it.
You sort out the plans, leave the financing and politics to me.
I want everything on the level.
We're the good guys here, remember?
Got to go.
Since when were you on such good terms with the Planning Committee?
Since I needed to be.
I understand you're calling a meeting.
Well, it's important to keep people informed,
if only in the interests of transparency.
It all sounds a bit desperate to me.
It's a legal requirement. I'm surprised you didn't know that.
So you're drafting in an expert, too?
I think we'd better find one of our own.
I was talking to a colleague in here earlier and a name came up.
I wonder if the local community know about your past.
All in the interests of transparency, of course.
Now who's sounding desperate?
I've been honest with my constituents. Have you?
It was the isolating valve that needed replaced. Easy fix.
That's good. I thought it was a pure heavy leak.
Is there nothing else you need me to look at while I'm here?
If he starts moaning about squeaky floorboards, I'll give you a shout.
Bright and early in the morning, all right, boys.
All right? Is this you keeping the workers sweet?
Keeps them grafting.
Listen, you don't need a skilled tradesman, do you?
It's just that I know someone that's on the outlook
for some gainful employment.
Own tools included.
By the way, I'm Gabriel.
Listen, all my jobs are filled for the time being,
but once the Lowtherhill development's up and running
-I'll be casting about for a crew.
-Well, cast no further.
I'll keep you in mind. Nice to meet you.
A pint, please, Stevie.
The vultures are gathering, eh?
Picking over the bones of a dying community.
If there was a real job going, why wouldn't I want a piece of it?
Even if it's at the cost of my job?
Well, grab a hammer and join me then, Murray.
The more the merrier.
That sounds urgent.
Congratulations. See you later.
See you later.
Is that you signed up then?
That's my investment agreed anyway.
You think they'll want to buy the garage?
Sorry, mate. It's not in the plans.
Not at the moment anyway.
No, no worries. You must be dead chuffed, but?
Inner city regeneration's where it's at these days.
And they're high-spec student flats with guaranteed tenants,
guaranteed rent. It's a win-win.
What does Eileen think about you investing?
Some people always see the worst in these situations.
It's new money coming into the area.
That can only be a good thing. For Eileen and Stuart too.
So is that why you're doing it then?
Show me a better reason.
-Here's your coffee.
The only one way to hit a hairdressing convention
is with Pinot Grigio.
Oh! Liking this, cheers.
Oh, quick hide me! Quick!
Has she gone?
I take it you're still meant to be in that office.
Aye, but I just wanted a night out, what's so bad about that?
It's a diva's divine right to party whenever she can.
Right, what are we doing with your hair? Cheryl Cole or Katy Perry?
-What about Cheryl Perry? The best of both worlds?
-Loving your ambition.
And party down!
There you go. All finished?
Aye, though I think Malc sees those handrails as an insult
to his manhood. So I placed the blame firmly at your door.
Oh, something else for me to sort out. Thanks a lot.
Look, if there's anything else you need, just give me a call, any time
And from anyone, it seems. He asked Lindsay for a job.
Don't hold your breath.
What's all this?
-It's Eileen's meeting tomorrow.
So, this is a community pub.
Yeah, but we don't take sides in local issues. Take it down.
No, just leave it where it is, Stevie.
This is my pub.
And you don't care if it gets turned into a student dive?
All karaoke and theme nights?
Well, some of us like to make their own business.
Some other people should do the same.
Yeah, bury your head in the sand.
That's a great thing to pass on to the next generation.
Folks, can I have your attention?
This Lowtherhill Development, it's not going to go away,
and you know why?
Because those in charge stand to make a lot from it.
This isn't about regeneration, it's about naked profiteering.
Oh! She's off again.
Yeah, and I'll keep on, until you guys realise that this is a...
It's a battle for the heart of this community.
Back on her soapbox.
If we lose, we don't just lose a Community Centre
and a Health Centre, we lose our future.
Look, I don't want applause, I don't want applause,
I want you just to sign the petition and come to tomorrow night's meeting.
This isn't a time to turn your backs,
it's a time to stand up and be counted.
And see if we stand together, we'll win.
I'm on my way out, wee man.
-I wanted to ask you something.
I need a loan.
Sorry. For a minute there I thought you asked me for a loan.
It'll be short-term.
Is the garage in trouble?
No. I want to diversify, that's all.
I've got the chance to get in on the ground floor with something so...
It's not one of those pyramid things, is it?
It's the Lowtherhill Development.
And according to my sources, it's a win-win situation.
Your sources? Right.
Will you lend me the money or not?
Why would I want to use my money to help Alex McAllister?
-Cos you'll be helping me.
-Why would I want to help you?
-We're business partners already, remember?
-How could I forget.
I'm losing left, right and centre on that truck.
this is a chance to make some real money.
If McAllister found out that your money came from me,
he'd hand it right back to you.
So can you lend me the money, or not?
I need an answer.
I think I just gie'd you it.
Come on. I'm in a hurry.
What are you doing here?
I was at the garage looking for you.
-I'm having a break.
-I need the car in, it needs some work.
The clutch, it keeps slipping.
-Did you leave it there?
-Aye, I've parked it outside.
I'll check it out.
-Mate's rates, right?
Do you know how tough it is out there the now?
Eh, we're family.
So why do you want to see me go under then?
It can't be that bad.
I'm nearly 30, I'm making nae money, staying with my ma
and I've got no prospects.
What's got into you?
The Lowtherhill Development is the one chance I've got
to turn things around,
but I've got no money to invest, and nobody'll give me a loan of it.
Who've you asked?
The bank, Raymond, Lenny...
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa... No, no...
You do not borrow from Murdoch.
-Right now I would take anything that's offered.
-Aye, but not his.
Come on, see sense.
I've got two choices. Let the chance go or sell the garage.
Surely it's not come to that.
If I mess this up, I know I'm going to regret it the rest of my life.
If you sell the garage, will you have enough?
It's all I've got.
Are you going to the meeting later?
I don't know.
I don't know what I'm doing about anything the now.
You are not going home!
I've lost my party mojo now.
Well, I haven't. It's still early. Cal's at Lenny's all night.
And I came out with you the other night, remember?
-You promised me a wild night with loads of guys.
How was I to know there wasn't going to be a free bar or any decent guys?
Here, hold on a minute. Were you looking to pull?
Aye, cos I've dressed up like this for you, Robbie?
You cannae even walk in they shoes. Look, I'm sorry, Kelly.
I promise, I'll make it up to you.
Right, well, you can start by buying me a drink.
One drink and then I'm off. I'll get them in.
A piggy-back would be nice!
Whatever happened to chivalry, eh? You want a lift?
You're going to carry me to the Tall Ship?
Only if you ask nicely.
I've not had that much to drink.
-What, you're abandoning me already?
-Aye, I am.
Thanks very much. What happened to my glamorous night out on the town?
I already told you. One drink, I'm off.
Looks like you're stuck with a glamorous night in The Ship.
Well, you're in luck.
Cos we've got not one, but two new flavours of crisps.
what can I get you?
I'm not sure Eileen would approve of me fraternising with the enemy.
I won't tell her if you don't.
Besides, she's your boss, not your mother.
Am not sure my mother would approve either.
Then I must be perfect for you then.
You're quite funny.
Oh. Damned with faint praise.
I mean, you seem to be all about making money,
but maybe that's wrong.
Money's not a bad thing to have. It's just not everything.
But this development's about what you can make off it, right?
If it was, I'd be building luxury tower blocks,
not a Halls of Residence and a Health Centre.
Well, Eileen thinks you're misguided.
Like with this whole scrubland thing.
Thinking you can just expand onto it, she doesn't think that's right.
She thought it was a good idea this morning.
Aye, but she would do, wouldn't she? But she's not happy.
Believe you me.
Eileen believes that community
can only thrive where people are poor and downtrodden.
I don't agree.
And any money coming in through Lowtherhill would naturally
trickle down, benefitting everyone.
But I came here to relax and have a drink, not lobby for votes.
Well, I better make tracks.
Twist my arm.
Stevie, can we have the same again, and have one yourself, mate.
I'll bring them over.
Carriage turn into a pumpkin, did it?
I just wanted to come home.
I only really went to show my face, to be honest.
Any decent fellas out there?
Not according to Kelly-Marie.
And according you?
There's only one fella that I need at the moment.
Oh, flattery will get you everywhere.
-Is Kelly-Marie still out?
-No, I left her in The Ship.
Oh. I thought you went into town. So you left her on her own?
Don't you start. She's already made me feel dead guilty.
Do you think I should go back over?
No. I'm sure she can look after herself.
You should do whatever you want to do.
I just want a night in.
Oh, Dad, don't do that. I need those papers there.
Hey... It's double Dutch to me.
Dad, just leave them! Dad!
It's making the place look like a tip.
I think he's just trying to help me.
Well, he's not helping me.
Look, I understand that you're working very hard, but...
I'll clear it up when I'm done.
That's what you said last night.
I thought you had an office you could work in.
-You're under pressure, yes, I understand that.
But just don't take it out on your dad!
I don't want you making yourself ill because of all this.
I can't have them shut down the Community Centre without a fight.
I mean, you get a lot out of your music therapy.
So, you're doing it because of me?
Yeah, and the toddler group, and the art society, and the book club.
They all need the Centre, too, don't they?
Well, if nobody ever says it, I will.
God bless you, darlin'.
Right, well, that's me finished the one drink.
So you're released from any further obligations.
What if I'm happy where I am?
Well, I'm not.
This was supposed to be a night of high glamour and non-stop partying.
And you're stuck here with me?
Surely you must know a few good bars in town.
I do, aye.
Right, well, why don't we go to one?
Do you want one for the road?
Aye, why not?
Och. It's in the past.
But if things become too hard for you, Eileen,
you're going to have to ease up.
I can always find time to help you and my dad.
We don't want you to feel obliged.
Do you have any idea how hard it is
to have to rely on other people now?
But we're family.
Aye, but it's not that easy to ask for help.
Especially when we've both been used to having people rely on us.
Malcolm's always been a man who coped.
Head down, get on with it.
Me too, actually.
..Malcolm is struggling more and more and...
..my health isn't what it should be evidently...
We want you here, Eileen, we need you here
But it's been a big change having you here.
KELLY MARIE LAUGHING
-You sure you're all right with me going?
-On you go. It's fine.
When I come back I want you two out.
I'm trying to think of a good bar that we...
Instead of going into town, why don't we go somewhere nice
and cosy, a whole lot closer?
I wouldn't call any of the bars round here cosy.
Well, I was talking about your place.
I think I'd better walk you home.
Look, don't trouble yourself. I can find my own way.
EILEEN: Right, there's been zero interest in this land all this time
and now you get two calls about it in one day?
And this claim filed earlier this morning was in whose name?
Alex McAllister. Yeah.
No, no, there's nothing else. Thank you, bye.
What was that about?
I found details about that scrubland last night
and I really thought we'd got him at last.
It was bought in the late 1800s, right,
and it's lain fallow ever since. No claim on it. Until this morning.
When Alex put one in.
Why did he make a claim today, just when I'm looking into it?
Why not before?
I was at The Ship with him last night, and we got chatting.
I just said that you weren't happy about him thinking
he could just expand in the scrubland without any comeback.
You said that?
You think he's used that information?
What would you do?
But if they're going to expand and build a Health Centre
on that bit of land, surely that's a good thing?
The key word there is "if".
Tell Murray I'll see him later.
And there is no chance that somebody could put in a counter bid?
Like, say, our friendly, local Councillor?
No, he's assured me that that particular loophole's
-been firmly closed.
Morning. How's your feet?
I better get back to the yard, I've got some work to do.
-What the hell was that for?
-You're a pig.
What are you talking about?
Why did you even hang out with me last night?
I was enjoying your company.
You used me, Alex.
You led me on, you got your information about Eileen,
then you sent me home.
-Are you forgetting one tiny detail?
You volunteered the information. I never asked.
And that was early on in the night.
If I was only after information, then I could have walked away then.
Do you fancy a late breakfast or something?
In your dreams.
This is Murray. Please leave a message after the tone.
Murray? We've got him!
Kelly Marie told me about last night, with Alex.
All's fair in love and war, right?
You're the one that turned this into a war, Eileen.
-A very personal war against me.
-Don't flatter yourself.
Power politics doesn't suit you, Councillor.
These are the minutes from the sub-committee meeting
where you pledged your support for the redevelopment
of the Moss Green Health Centre.
This was before you and Alex McAllister promised to build
a new one in Shieldinch.
There's been many, many meetings on this issue.
"Councillor Paton noted that this would serve not only Moss Green,
"but also the neighbouring area of Shieldinch."
There never was going to be a new one for us, was there?
Moss Green's more than adequate...
You lied and I want a full and public apology from you
and from Alex McAllister.
There's no need to drag him into this.
He doesn't know anything about this, does he?
You weren't going to tell him until his money was already tied up.
-I'm going to enjoying telling him and my constituents
and the Committee, and when I do, you're finished.
People often ask me why I became a councillor.
So what did you find out?
-It's all in the speech.
-OK, I can wait.
But Kelly's at the subway, got campaigners everywhere else.
I'm going to go and get a sandwich, can I get you something?
-No, you're OK.
-You should eat something.
Line the stomach for the champagne later on.
-I'll get you a coffee anyway.
People often ask me why I became a councillor...
I don't want to hear you can't find anything.
Keep digging and call me back.
I thought we'd sorted everything.
I was thinking about what you said.
She's been whipping up the community,
-convinced she's got them on her side.
-And has she?
I don't want to take that chance.
You're not making me feel very confident, Frank.
I'm not feeling very confident myself.
If there's a problem with the community
that spells trouble for us.
I need to go after her.
No, I told you before no strong-arm tactics, no intimidation.
Everything has to be squeaky clean.
Every day we're held up, we're losing thousands.
You have to decide whether you're happy with that,
or if we lean on her a little we put a stop to it today.
So, are we going to wait for more obstacles to be thrown up,
or are we going to press on?
We press on.
Long time no see, Frankie.
Aye, if you'd been keeping better company,
we might have seen more of each other.
We go back a long way, you and I.
Any conversation that starts with a reminisce always ends badly.
-I'm just stating the obvious.
I'm sure we've both got better things we can be getting on with.
What's this? A present?
I need dirt on someone.
My usual contacts have delivered nothing.
It has to be foolproof. And fast.
Who are you after?
Do you have any leverage with her?
Let me worry about that, eh?
There's 25 grand in there.
What do you take me for? Some kind of mug?
How much is this investment worth to you?
-You were always greedy.
-And you were always cheap.
Shall we start again?
-So, you want more cash...
-No, I want in on the deal.
No, that's not possible. This has to be squeaky clean.
I need Alex on side.
Nice catching up, Frankie. Don't be a stranger, eh?
Look, you could...
get a patsy to front your investment.
You be the silent partner. I can cut you in for 3%.
-6. No way.
-5 or I'm walking away right now.
You'll be left with a generous percentage of nothing.
And since it's short notice...
..I'll take this to cover my expenses, encourage cooperation.
I'll be in touch, Frank.
Look, if it's a car problem, I'm locking up the now.
-You were looking for money earlier on.
-No, I sorted it.
-What, is somebody else giving you a loan of it?
I've decided to sell the garage.
And as a shareholder I was obviously going to tell you, but...
You don't have to sell anything. I've had a change of heart.
The Centre's filling up.
Anything you need from us?
Just to be there.
I'll follow you over.
Eileen, I haven't said anything before,
but what you're doing for this community is amazing.
We all owe you.
'This is Lenny. I can't take your call just now. Leave a message.'
Lenny, it's me. Have you got anything?
Time's running out, pal.
Oh, I'm sorry I'm late.
I was taking in a washing.
-Feeling all right, are you?
-Much better, thank you.
Oh, that's good.
I take it everyone's at the Community Centre?
Take they posters down.
Have a seat anywhere.
Feeling the pressure?
-What are you doing here?
-The door was open.
Do you really think this development's such a bad idea?
Can you just say what you came here to say, Lenny,
and then leave me alone?
What's your idea of a good community?
One that supports and protects its members.
No matter what. Couldn't agree more.
Where are you headed with this?
-Who says I'm heading anywhere?
You know, I can see why you're so committed to this cause.
You're grateful to people around here, for protecting you.
Well, you and Raymond.
Of course, people outside of Shieldinch,
they might wonder why somebody that sermonises so loudly about honesty
and integrity in public life,
could help cover up a murder.
Are you threatening me? PHONE RINGS
Just a reality check.
I'm not backing down. I can't.
Well, if you're fine everybody knowing Raymond's a murderer
and you're an accessory.
Of course, it's going to be hard on your family and friends.
Especially if you both go down.
You know who it's going to affect the worst.
You know it won't be easy growing up, knowing your dad's a murderer.
See you at the party.
We all set, Murray?
Going over her victory speech.
You'd think Raymond would be supporting Eileen in this.
Aye, it's amazing what people will do to make money, eh?
Even Bob's had his head turned.
They're from the Planning Committee.
Do you really think we're going to win this?
Eileen's confident and that's good enough for me.
She is coming, isn't she?
She's not going to turn down the chance to bury this development.
It is after 6.30.
Where are you going!
We're all set.
-You got everything you need?
Let's take them down.
Ladies and gentlemen, thanks for making the effort to be here
tonight and thank you for your patience.
Without further ado, I'd like to introduce our guest speaker,
a long-standing and well-respected member of the local council,
and a tireless campaigner on behalf of local residents.
It gives me great pleasure to hand over to Councillor Eileen Donachie.
Sometimes in this job...
People often ask me why I became a Councillor, what I gain from it.
Most of the time not a lot, to be honest.
Apart from frustration and stress and a lot of sleepless nights.
But every now and then something comes along
that makes it all worthwhile.
The Lowtherhill project is one of those things.
I was adamant from the start that we couldn't afford to lose
this Community Centre. That too many people from toddlers to teens,
from young mums to pensioners, relied on it.
And then there was the removal of our Health Centre,
which seemed to be a bridge too far.
After that, the original plans were changed and I felt that the goalposts
were being deliberately moved, and that we were being manipulated.
I have pored over the new plans for most of today,
and I have checked and rechecked the measurements and...
having considered long and hard...
the probable impact of such a huge development on this area...
..I've finally come to a conclusion.
And my conclusion is...
..that I think it can work.
So as of now, I am withdrawing all my previous objections
and I'm offering my unconditional support...to this development.
You said this project was going to be a disaster,
that it was going to cause chaos.
-Well, I've changed my mind.
They will still be demolishing the Health Centre
and moving us miles away.
We came here to support you.
You have no idea how tirelessly that lassie's worked.
And if she's changed her mind there must be a reason for it,
isn't that right, love?
-What are you doing?
You said you had them. You handed it to them on a plate!
I deserve an explanation, Eileen.
This is my job and my life
and you've just thrown both of them away!
I think this development is the best thing for the community.
Oh, you want to say that once more, with feeling?
I thought not.
Well, I hope you sleep well tonight, Councillor.
Because I certainly I won't.
So, you've finally saw the light.
-Not now, Raymond.
Just...stay away from me.
I'm glad you put all that other stuff to one side.
We can talk properly tomorrow.
Takes a brave person to admit when they're wrong.
How did you get her to back down?
She finally saw sense.
Be happy. We're out the rapids, into calm waters.
Nothing can stop us now.
You cut it fine there.
You got what you wanted.
You're still not going to tell me what it is?
Knowledge is power, Frankie. And currency.
I'll drink to that.
Here's to a lucrative partnership.
A lucrative silent partnership.
Angus. We're here, come on.
We're your next door neighbours
Right. This is my son Angus. That's my daughter Kirsty
What's happened, Jimmy?
I got a court date.
To testify against Kennedy.
Me and Will just want to create a loving home
for a wean to come into.
-Have you got something in the oven?
-What's that doing here?
-It's Mum's stuff.
I was going to put it into storage.
No, she'll want it here. For when she comes back.
Don't take this as a criticism of your judgment, but are you really
sure our Mr Lindsay's got enough experience
for a project of this size?
