On another page, you have a trade union official advocating council tax rises in Scotland, which would create even more poverty.
As an ex Unison steward I find it astonishing that any union official would come up with this nonsense.
The SNP deserve praise for their freeze on council tax, it has helped those who must pay it despite having to struggle to do so.

THE botched flotation of the Royal Mail means the Government has yet again gifted millions of taxpayers' money to bankers.
We can now see how well this worked in the power supply sector.
Millions of people now live in fuel poverty while these companies rake in huge profits.
A return is needed to nationalised energy to protect the right of people to affordable fuel.

IT is great to read Gail Sheridan's new online column on the Evening Times website.
There is plenty happening in and around Glasgow that affects Glasgow folk, so I for one am glad to see another Sheridan who will speak up for the people of our city.
And there are plenty of issues that Tommy could get moving on again, too - the 'bedroom tax' and closing of community centres, for example.

I WAS going to the Lyric Club's production of The Steamie until I read the director's comment that "there are still people wandering about Glasgow who speak like this, travel on a bus and you will hear them."
Ah, the banter ... and the rank snobbery.
