    REGARDING the parking permit scheme for residents near the new Southern General - the hospital is for the benefit of all citizens in Glasgow and I think it is unfair that residents should be landed with a £50 charge for living in the area.

    In view of the fact so called Labour MSPs have turned down the opportunity to lead their party, I recall an old phrase, used some years ago at Westminster:

  • 28 Oct 2014

    I HATE to disagree with Councillor Alistair Watson, Points of View, October 25, but the new South Glasgow University Hospital is hardly the Scottish Government's baby.

  • 27 Oct 2014

    RATHER than a lower drink-drive limit, I think we should have a zero-tolerance approach to drinking and driving.

  • 25 Oct 2014

    YOUR correspondent who wrote in regarding hospital parking in Thursday's Evening Times should hold the Scottish Government to account on this issue and not Glasgow City Council.

    Historic Scotland, an Edinburgh-based Government agency, is presumably not going to start charging for entry to the capital's St Giles' Cathedral, so why are they planning to charge visitors to Glasgow Cathedral?

    I and other members of my family, like numerous Glaswegians, applied for tickets for the Christmas lights switch on.

    In a time of such deprivation you would think that charity shops would be eager to accept donated items, but apparently not, as they've too many rules and regulations to follow.

    Watching the TV news the other night, I felt very emotional to see the British Medical Ship RFA Argus set sail from Falmouth for West Africa to help battle the Ebola crisis.

    In response to the letter from Mr Martin Muir, "City rail users in a jam".

  • 17 Oct 2014

    It's not the 'city's shame' there is child poverty in Glasgow.

  • 16 Oct 2014

    As a new rail commuter, travelling between Newton and Glasgow each morning, I am absolutely disgusted at the conditions First ScotRail passengers are expected to endure on a daily basis.

  • 15 Oct 2014

    REGARDING the 77% drop in motorists ignoring a new bus gate (Evening Times, October 14), Alistair Watson said:

  • 14 Oct 2014

    THE playground ban on cooked takeaway lunches (yesterday) once again shows a council ready to tell people what to do.

  • 13 Oct 2014

    Regards crime falling during the Commonwealth Games (Thursday), obviously proof that high levels of policing on the streets cuts crime and creates a confidence in people about their safety.

  • 09 Oct 2014

    Regarding Johann Lamont's childcare plans.

  • 08 Oct 2014

    REGARDING the LibDems saying Nicola Sturgeon should rule out a second referendum, why would the SNP stop trying to achieve their aim for Scotland to become independent?

  • 07 Oct 2014

    Celebrities and big businesses using loopholes not to pay the same taxes as the plebs; MPs claiming every single penny possible in expenses; councillors and council staff not paying their Council Tax; charity bosses pocketing hug pay deals; supermarket bosses buying themselves jets; India sending up rockets while we send them billions to feed their starving people while some of our own depend on food banks; criminals with millions stashed away being allowed to keep their ill-gotten gains due to the abject failure of our legal system to claw back the proceeds of crime.

  • 06 Oct 2014

    Now that Alex Salmond has scrapped historic Poll Tax debts, does that mean that those of us who were forced by law to pay that despised tax can expect to get our money back?

  • 03 Oct 2014

    HAVING booked my tickets for Still Game, at the Hydro, about a year ago, I'd just like to say, the show was well worth the wait.

  • 02 Oct 2014

    SO, the council gives the go-ahead for a 24-hour gym in the Shawlands Arcade and the mall boss comments that 'Silverburn will always outclass us'.

  • 01 Oct 2014

    On Sunday, I felt proud and ashamed of my home town, Glasgow; proud at the kind heart shown yet again by the number of food parcels left in George Square for needy people, but even more ashamed by the lack of respect shown by the large numbers of people drinking and smoking around and climbing all over the Cenotaph.

  • 30 Sep 2014

    It is disgusting that the poor, needy and disabled are being penalised for the faults of the super rich who nearly brought the country to its knees.

  • 29 Sep 2014

    In response to reader T ­MacLachlan of Cardonald, (September 25), I have an easy answer.

  • 26 Sep 2014

    BECAUSE of a good autumn, it's said our homes are going to be invaded by giant spiders.

  • 25 Sep 2014

    As an SNP voter I was appalled that Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon did not attend the service of reconciliation at St Giles' Cathedral after the referendum, He is the First Minister and should be leading the country forward regardless of his disappointment at the result.

  • 24 Sep 2014

    IN RESPONSE to Thomas Donnelly's letter of September 22, I can only wonder where Mr Donnelly has been for the past couple of decades.

    GLASGOW showed its true side over the weekend when it came together to donate to the city's foodbanks.
