I was amazed to see a Labour councillor quoted praising the development, and his claim that "Regenerating Johnstone is high on our agenda".
Would this be the same bunch who campaigned against the closure of the very same pool that's now being demolished?
As your story rightly points out, Johnstone has a new sports centre complete with pool and it has been a real hit with people who have been enjoying it.
It would just be refreshing if now and again those we elect to serve us would hold their hands up and admit they got it wrong.

I read your article regarding the £300million cost of fixing the city's roads (Tuesday).
The state of our roads is a disgrace and the amount we pay in taxes is more than adequate to keep them in good condition.
Yet the money we pay never seems to go where it is needed. I think the utility firms are to blame. Nearly every time they do work the standard of the road they leave behind is simply awful.
I was shocked to read Glasgow pensioners are going to be charged £156 a year for emergency alarms (Monday).
They worked hard all their lives and the council is making them pay. Shame on you Glasgow City Council.
As a West End resident I was pleased to read about the crackdown on housebreakers in a new operation by Strathclyde Police (Tuesday).
I live in a ground floor flat, and a branch went through my kitchen window almost two weeks ago.
It still hasn't been repaired and though I've told my landlord I would do it myself, I need to wait for someone to come that they use.
At the moment I feel like a sitting target.
