As with all the other PC nonscence that comes from Labour politicians, there must have been one single person who first mooted the idea. Find out who that was and name and shame them! I bet they will have a link to some English 'arms length' company! I wonder how many of these councilors really care about Glasgow and where it is going?

You see Guest, running a council is actually quite simple....

Well, Guest 2, running a council might well be simple; running a city and its services is rather more complicated.

Any firm that came in at this moment in time might do a better job than GCC especially when it comes to 'neds' and 'big weans' jumping over the wall at Ruchazie and skipping on to Lethamhill Golf Course at the 9th hole.

I'm speechless at this proposal!

Fronswa, can I just say, "Thanks" for the You-Tube link you posted. It's brilliant but heart-breaking at the same time.

Well said fronswa, We have always been benevolent of previous City Fathers who have always provided liesure facilities to the Glasgow public at no cost whatsoever,

But this proposed sell off is an insult to all of our predecessors who have enjoyed the privilige afforded to them.

My one concern is however that GCC may plan to extend this sell off to all of its other liesure services and we may find that we will be paying a private company 5 a head to access the new multi million pound transport museum when it opens next year.

Hello people of Glasgow and the board i think you all have to think hard and long about privatisation as once they take over it is hard to remove them ans if you are not happy with their services you will have to contact the English firm and that will take time as the council is on your door step.

Look what happend to the railway when they privatiased that it is a disaster the goverment said it would be a better service and cheaper fares what a load of rubbish you just have to listen to the nes to know how bad it is i hope you have better luck .

Bye for now aw the best to all.

Hi Guest!!

Surely that is the very point - the Council should be doing a better job!! BUT they prefer the easy way out!
