I COULDN'T agree more with Gary McLelland's point 'No room for clerics', May 21, on the legislation that states Glasgow City Council must have three religious representatives to its executive committee.
Not only is this out of touch with how politics should be conducted, it could very easily stand in the way of new policies which conflict with religious views but not a m,ajority of committee members.
Decisions should reflect the needs of everyone and not any specific groups. Politics and religion do not mix.
IT has been revealed that some hospitals have cut back on alcohol gel handwash over fears that visitors will drink it.

Bee Gee Whizz
SO sad to lose another pop music great with the death of Robin Gibb.
It's easy to look back on the big hair and disco lyrics and treat the Bee Gees as something of a pop joke, especially if you remember the late Kenny Everett's outrageious send up of the band.
But when you look at the list of hits not just sung by themselves but written for other pop legends, you realise just what an influential group they were.
SO, we need Star Trek gimmicks to lure kids into engineering (ET, yesterday).
This in the country that produced James Watt, John Boyd Dunlop, Alexander Graham Bell and John Logie Baird.
I doubt if they had to have this type of incentive.
