Yes Hidden Glasgow users are already documenting many of the things mentioned. What would be different is that we'd all be out in a unified effort over a limited number of days and the results would be collated into a publication, exhibition, slideshow, who knows?

I checked through the next few months reports and although a few raids over Glasgow are mentioned, no details are given as the main focus at this ...

I'm sure that if you managed to get hold of a time machine and travel back to Glasgow in the 14th century, the neds would still be here, have the same haircuts, speak in the same nasal twang, but would be wearing an all in one sack-cloth instead of a Lacoste trackie.

I work the door in a Glasgow pub and wonder how easy it'll be to enforce the ban, especially in crowded clubs. Still I won't miss the stale aroma of second hand smoke.
