It may be a plan for Ken Livingston to make London a country
I doubt Scottie McClue would agree.

Bit of a mix of car markets and red light district now, but there's Melbourne Street and Sydney Street in the East End, just off Duke St.

Anyone know where the Australian connection came from?

Anyone know of a Malta St? I Think it was in the Gorbals before the rebuild
