Glasgow's Miles Better............


Hullo ma wee blog,

Glasgow has long been known as one of Europe's murder capitals. It's famous or infamous for its knife culture. Yet, it's also recognised as one of Europe's friendliest cities too.

So. What does this all mean?

Just that the man who stabs you will probably give you directions to the nearest hospital too.......

That's got to be reassuring.

see you later.

listening to U2, 'With Or Without You'

I was about to ask you Al ,,
" What brought that on ?" .,.,
then I remembered ...
You've been listening to the Scottish morning News and heard all about "Glesca's Maryhill Chiselers !" Gulp !!!
I don't think these guys fit into the "friendly city" mould somehow ? They seem to take things a bit too serious for my liking. Gulp again !!

They're probably just poor unemployed builders trying to keep their tools sharp!!!

Hopefully it's native V native.......

Maryhill......did a project there at one time.

It was pure murder too.....
