Glasgow Tower Blocks

Hi all,

Does anyone know the internal state of the tower blocks due for demolition such as at Red Road and the two in the Gorbals?

Also, does anyone have a list of those due for demolition?

Re: would you vote labour

Allydoll, you try and tell the Scottish Labour Group that they are the same as the Edinburgh Tory Club. :) As an aside, whose the party leader of the Tories in Scotland nowadays anyway? Spot on. If we had some people like Manny Shinwell or even Tony Benn. These people were men of conviction. All we...

Good to see another Labour dimwit with no ambition for anything other than serving his party system is on the case, doh!

Vote SNP once. Get independence. The rest of history there will be the whole spectrum of parties in Scotland to vote for... I've said this elsewhere so I'll say it here. Nobody with any political influence has any interest in independence and nobody with any interest in independence has any politic...

Re: Bright idea

I believe the pensioners in Angus are still waiting on the free lightbulbs (insert your own pun) they were promised by the SNP. Apparently the people of Glasgow are still waiting to be dragged out of poverty. Maybe the continued lowering of life expectancy will kill all the doom laden Labour monger...

You might argue that such a situtation is preferable to the status quo but I've yet to hear any argument for that proposition which did not betray an underlying anti-Englishness. What utter nonsense! With the exception of some comical posts the debate has been sensible and well balanced. It is not ...

Once we get our independence we wont be subject to Governments from down south. It's a mean to an end. Like the USA has no effect on Mexico . And just exactly what is the end? tartan passports? The end is and independent member of the EU, yes with a Scottish passport just like Ireland, Latvia, Fran...

Once we get our independence we wont be subject to Governments from down south. It's a mean to an end. Much as I'd like to agree with that, it wont happen. We can't run a piss up in a brewery. The parliament building i think sums us up. We do half measures, argue amongst ourselves and generally can...

Why not vote for the SNP? At least they actually beleive in making decisions for Scotland IN Scotland. To me, the idea that Scotland including Glasgow, can't run itself is totally wrong. It's about being positive. Under independence things would be vastly improved not least people's attitude to thei...

Yeah I'm sure you are right. It just seems surprising that the likes of Gordon can get in as well as McVeety when they offer so little.

Seems to me that we need to raise expectations and hopes for the future.

Why do people in Glasgow keep voting Labour?

Sorry not sure if this topic has been done before.

Just seems weird to me that people keep voting for the British Labour Party when they seemed to have failed the city so badly.

Thoughts?

Kinlochleven

Hi all,

My first ever post on here! Was up cycling on the conduit at Kinlochleven last week. Can anyone suggest some good books about the scheme and/or sources on the web?
