Thanks to everyone who replied to or read my comments. I didn't mean to offend anyone with my opinion and I wasn't trying to be nasty to the people at the campsite. I was actually meaning that the place would act as a magnet to the dodgy types who already - unfortunately - sometimes frequent this lovely park! Normally they will drift through and as long as everyone ignores them, then they will simply go away. I've seen quite a few of these types spoil a nice weekend family picnic, which is sad because when the good weather comes there's no better place than a sunny Kelvingrove Park.

I've enjoyed reading through the comments and will update you all if I see any developments on my walks. Reading the opinions has given me a bit of a different perspective on what is happening.

I think the Council are playing a smart game hiding the protesters away in the Park where not many people will see them. biggrin.gif

I for one am very happy that you've posted that Martin.
Certainly shoots down the "Occupation by Druggies" theories that seem to abound.

I'm not bigotted or biased against "occupy Glasgow" or any other city, I just think that if these people got out there and worked or served their country, we wouldn't be in the mess we are. These people seem to be professional protestors, how else can they afford to live and eat if all they do is protest.

Their moto seems to be

"Everyone is entitled to my opinion"

LOL

(Instead of protesting)

So who should protest against Wall St. & Co.?
Or should no one be protesting at all?
Look at the enormous cost of maintaining "Trident" which will never be used to kill anyone but as a status symbol ...
QUOTE
... Britain's status is what Tony Blair, another committed Christian, emphasises in his autobiography, A Journey.
- "The expense [of Trident] is huge, and the utility in a post-cold war world is less in terms of deterrence, and non-existent in terms of military use", he wrote. Blair said he could see clearly the force of the "common sense and practical argument" against Trident. But in the end he thought giving it up would be "too big a downgrading of our status as a nation"

... but front line nurses are being laid off in their thousands while hospital executives are receiving embarrassingly high salaries (greater than the Prime Minister even who wanted to save Britain's Status Symbol at all cost.)
Remember the Big Bank Bail-outs and the Big Bank Bonuses that followed after your money bailed them out?
Where was your protest then? (A few complaints on GG perhaps?)
Let them protest - and give them support ... even if it's only in saying, "All the best kids. Good luck tae you," because someone needs to protest about the disgracful amount of money that is being taken from the workin' class to support the likes of corporate criminals ... and criminals they are; they're abusing your taxes while your granny canny heat her home again this winter.

You and a few others. (Eh, Melody and Kennedy?) biggrin.gif
I never thought I'd see myself supporting anything that even resembled the meerest hint of a whiff of socialism but ... there you go. rolleyes.gif
If there was an *"Occupy Basel" I'd honestly go over the border and sit it out with them every afternoon. (I'm committed to walking a dog each morning and Mary doesn't care what I do during the day so long as I'm home in time to prepare her evening meal ... she brings home the bacon in our house and it's almost the half of her wages that go in taxes and insurance contributions as a single woman with no kids).
You could say I've seen the light ... Not that one Wee Davy. rolleyes.gif

* There is a group who still haven't got themselves organised into "Occupying" a particular site in Basel.
