What ruled them out for me was that the SCP are only treating the Glasgow council election as a stepping stone to the rapture. Nobody steps on Glasgow etc, even if it is to get them into heaven.

Re: The Political Compass- Test

Almost three years later (!) and I seem to be drifting ever leftwards according to yon thing. Yup, started in the bottom left and moved steadily South and West since. Wonder if recent political/economic events has a hand in that. Probably. I am getting older and more correct as the world goes to he...

Re: New Transport Museum at Riverside

There was a brilliant telly programme by yon Jonathan Meades on the subject of cities clambering over each other to replicate the so-called Bilbao Effect - i.e. throw up some stainless steel randomness by a big name wowie architect, and it'll magically reinvigorate your city's moribund economy. Of ...

Re: Financial/mortgage adviser recommendation wanted

Possibly not helpful, but I have never had good advice/offers from IFAs or mortgage advisors. They could never match what I could find myself by going direct to lenders in terms of value and suitability. Shopping around the banks in person seems to work for me. After trusting advisors that were reco...

Re: Pooper Scoopers .........

Always amazed me how tolerant Britain was of shite lying on the pavement and in the parks whilst preaching the virtues of civic sanitation to the "third world".

Re: space shuttle visits glesga

Just checked with a fellow witness, It definitely flew West to East when we saw it. Which would suggest it either flew over Glasgow twice, to and from Paris, or they circled for a closer look of George Square.

Re: space shuttle visits glesga

"The space shuttle flew over Glasgow on Tuesday 6th June 1983 on it's way home from the Paris Airshow - I have confirmed this after checking online sites and looking at the microfiche copies of the Mitchell Library" Hmmmmm, the date feels right, but if I remember correctly it flew from Bla...

Only one? Give it time, if it turns out popular there might be more. There are half a dozen food and trinket carts parked outside the Guggenheim in New York and museums don't get much classier.

Re: Press

Greenslades Blog in The Guardian makes some interesting points regarding the decline of the The Daily Record. http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/greenslade/2011/jun/13/daily-record-trinity-mirror I suspect the rot has been chronic and there has been no interest from Trinity Mirror in fighting the decli...

Re: Boom & Bust

Just had my credit card limit cut by half, of course I do all the good things; pay it in full by DD, don't fanny around with it etc etc. I know that this was quite common a while back to reduce exposure, so was surprised that this has happened now. Banks expecting more choppy waters ahead for us ple...

Re: Scottish Parliamentary Election 2011

We won't NOT vote a party in then have them ride roughshod over us imposing shit on us we haven't asked for ala this Tory shower down South at present. For me that's the rub, it is not just at present. Privatised gas/electricity/telephones, illegal was, Trident on the Clyde, Poll tax, scrapping the...

Re: Scottish Parliamentary Election 2011

Glasgow really has surprised me.

Putting aside who won what for a moment, not being taken for granted can only be good for the city.
