While I think the majority of people would agree that their staff should have time off to spend with their families during the holiday period, anyone who has bought a weekly or fortnightly pass over that time will be denied two days' travelling time and experience a reduction in the general level of service over the holidays.
Surely it is incumbent upon FirstBus to recompense passengers or to extend their pass by two days?

Not the ticket!
I am absolutely disgusted by The Hydro.
I have always in the past bought tickets to events in the SECC. However, it has become apparent that because I am not an SSE customer, I will no longer be able to treat my two teenage daughters to any music events in Glasgow.
I have tried on many occasions to buy Hydro tickets only to be told that they have sold out within 4-5 minutes.
How is it possible to sell thousands of tickets in such a short time?
As far as I am concerned, it means tickets are no longer available to the general public, unless you are willing to pay £220 for a £55 face ticket with the touts.
This venue was billed as the best new thing for Glasgow. Not as far as I can see.

I write in relation to last week's article about a plaque being unveiled to honour civil engineer, Sir William Arrol.
I worked at Arrols from 1978 to 1985 before emigrating to New Zealand and discovered a few years ago that there was an Arrols' crane in Wellington, NZ.
Any time I am visiting the city I go and pay my respects and marvel at this quality piece of engineering.
I know of dozens of other ex-Arrols staff who now reside in NZ and Australia, who can thank Arrol for giving them work opportunities and qualifications which allowed them to travel the world.
