Alexander McCall Smith imagines an Edinburgh where permanent residents have left and the city has been handed over to a never-ending festival It is not often that one is privileged to be party to a whole new policy before it is rolled out. That expression, rolled out, by the way, is very significant. Many common-or-garden policies – or even initiatives, which are fairly similar to policies, but a bit grander – are simply announced or implemented. But really important plans are rolled out, in much the same way as the diplomats and generals used to roll out maps on their tables, with a flourish. Such policies may, of course, also be rolled up, or, in extreme cases, kicked into the long grass.
