Passenger rules are a tram cheek.

Byline: KAYE ADAMS TAKING IT ON

Who the heck is doing the PR for Edinburgh's trams?

They've just issued a list of rules for travellers that reads like something straight out of Hyacinth Bucket's Charm School.

No personal music played too loudly, no alcohol or swearing, no over–sized bags, no dirty clothes or T–shirts with "offensive slogans".

Form an orderly queue, sit up straight and don't speak until you are spoken to. OK, I may have made up the last few but I bet you struggle to see the join.

And these are not casual threats. They carry a potential fine of up to PS1000 and a year's ban.

We all know there have to be some guidelines about conduct on public transport but when you are trying to engender some goodwill for a project that is three years late, much diminished in scale and much inflated in cost, it's no time to start throwing your weight around.
