Whilst it's all well and good opening till 6:30 p.m. on a Sunday, it might be worthwhile pointing out to The Toorists that that closing time applies solely to the time that the drivers get home for dinner. On a good day.

You'll have gathered that I'm unamused at being kicked off at Govan U at five to six and told to make my own way home.

Either run the thing to everyone else's working hours or shut it entirely.

Exactly. It never ceases to amaze me that when every other bugger in employment (or not) is being forced to pull their breeks & socks up, this mob just carry on regardless.
Yes Bridie, you do.

Hope to live long enough to see the driver-less trains on the upgraded underground system. Good to note that the reporter didn''t say C*******k O****e.

I've been on the DLR in London, you don't even realise that there isn't a driver.

I notice the article mentions that the new trains will have "dedicated facilities for wheelchair users". Wonder how many stations they will actually be able to use though?

I was on the subway on Friday night, at a station the train suddenly filled with a mixed crowd all wearing medical scrubs. Having had a pint or three I thought I had wakened up in Emergency Ward 10. Each station was the same, crowds in scrubs. The girl who sat beside me explained that they were all at Uni studying medicine and all went on the Scrubway tour. She apologized if they had spoiled my journey, well she was an American, I said no in fact I had enjoyed talking to her. Another couple who got off the train at the same stop as me were moaning about their night being ruined and were saying that they should phone the Uni to complain. :roll:

Except the scrub suits are taken from the NHS and cost money to replace....not the first time Glasgow Uni medical students have been told not to do this.
