I grew up in Drumchapel 40 years ago, seeing some grim stuff along the way, but feel less safe now than I did then.
Newspapers report that serious crime has trended down, but, the trakkie-wearing, bottle-smashing thugs who regularly trash our local green space don't get that - most probably not being able to read.
Maybe it's low-level stuff, but uncontrolled behaviour left unchecked at any stage could lead to a return to high levels of crime in years to come .

Interesting to read the Kelvingrove bandstand was refurbished at a cost of £2million.
That's great. But what plans are in place to protect this asset from the threat of vandalism? Would it not have been money well spent to invest in CCTV coverage or even better to approach the privater sector to develop an integrated pub/diner next to the bandstand which would bring more people into the area? Parks need more things going on in them.

Pay up, bikers
The government is prepared to spend millions on improving the roads for cyclists.
Does that mean they will have to sit a driving test, have insurance and pay road tax, the same as motorists? How many times do motorists sit at red lights and watched these cyclists jump the lights watched them go up on pavements to avoid queuing traffic?
Let them pay the same as drivers and have the penalties.

Scottish democracy is held up to ridicule again, this time over the MSP who was found guilty of domestic abuse, but is still swanning in and out of Holyrood. It seems there are no rules against wrongdoing in our democratic institutions.
