Given that the council allowed a coal company to destroy where he lived (Glenbuck, not Muirkirk) without ensuring that appropriate restoration safeguards were in place, the memorial plans smacks of hypocrisy.
The council should have nothing to do with unveiling a memorial to the great man. Their incompetence, which led to Glenbuck being forever left as a hole in ground, a memorial to corporate greed and council failure, would have sickened him.

WHY did thousands of people queue at midnight to buy a computer game and a new phone which they could have easily purchases at other, more regular times? What is wrong with these people?
When people are going hungry and face losing their homes to the bedroom tax, such selfish behaviour is very sad.
So, Councillor Matheson and his City Chambers enforcers are now banning those who suffered most from their seriously poor judgment to hold concerts at Bellahouston Park from attending their meeting.
So much for democracy.

Can somebody explain to me why the new ferry for the Hebrides/Ullapool route is being built in Germany and not here in Scotland?
I don't hear Salmond/Sturgeon saying much about it. Anything good and those two can't be shut up.

Art show coup
WELL done to Glasgow for snatching the Jack Vettriano exhibition from beneath the noses of the art snobs in Edinburgh.
The high-faluting critics might not rate his work but I love it and can't wait to see the Kelvingrove show.
