Fizzing over drink price
WE have read recently about the furore caused by the Scottish Government's move on minimum drink pricing.
I think the time has come for the Government to legislate on maximum prices for soft drinks in pubs.
One bar on the South Side of Glasgow charged £1.60 for a half pint of draught soda water and blackcurrant.
I've regularly heard people say that they may as well have an alcoholic drink rather than pay an extortionate price for a coke.
If one citizen of Glasgow picked up one piece of litter per day, imagine what 500,000 of us could do. This would make a huge difference to Glasgow for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
The Evening Times has the right message with its Streets Ahead campaign.
IT is interesting that, after yet another gun massacre in the United States, President Obama and his likely Republican challenger have said nothing about gun control. In Colorado, it is as easy to purchase a deadly firearm as a cup of coffee.
It would appear that the gun lobby have the most powerful man on the planet cowering in fear of even mentioning the issue.
No taxi on rank
I can't believe the poor taxi situation at Queen Street on Saturday nights.
I realise it is the busiest night of the week, but it seems there is little point waiting at the station rank.
It is a main city station, but it seems to be neglected by drivers.
I was on the second last train into the station and arrived at Queen Street at 11.50pm.
The station then closed and we were left waiting for 40 minutes for a taxi to arrive on the rank.
I hope the police and the city council look into the issue as it is part of keeping people in the city centre safe at night.
