  Hi Davy,

There has been no mention of this in the press since the initial story was covered by The Herald and the Evening Times. It could be that the scheme has fallen off the radar following the departure of disgraced former council leader Steven Purcell. It could also be that Enterprise plc is carrying out some kind of feasibility study into the project.

I'll see what I can find out; if anyone else knows, please update the topic.

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.

Hi Guest!!

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

  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.

For F*** Sake!

Is there nothing that these plebs won't sell off, and pass out "to arms length" companies?

What a shower of sh!tes!

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.

I've only just taken time to read this link. (sorry)
Shocking and scandalous are inadequate descriptions of this April Fool's day trick.

The Council's proposals ... clearly breach the 1887 Public Libraries Act which says that it is the duty of the local council to manage public libraries, museums and art galleries provided under the legislation.

On April 1st, without any consultation with the public, Labour transferred your Cultural and Leisure services to an "Independent Trust". We will reverse that transfer.

I know here my vote would go if I had a vote in Glasgow.

  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.
