I know what you mean about being distrustful benny, especially when the interpretation is being made by a self-confessed middle-class non-Glaswegian (she's from Milngavie!) academic, however, Carol makes such a compelling case – drawing on a wide spectrum of evidence – that I was won over by her analysis and interpretation.

I think one factor which favours generalisation in this case is the overwhelmingly homogeneous nature of the Glaswegian working-class experience, at least up until the mid-1970s.


Aye, at least up until the mid-1970s ! Where has it gone ?

PatMer,one aspect of politics which has puzzled me over the years is why Glaswegians, and inhabitants of the west in general persist in voting for the Labour party. I am not saying this as a Tory, my family were the same, "Got to vote Labour" but over the decades for certain members of our society lessons have never been learned. Generations are born, grow up and die in the same deprived conditions.No work, no education or incentive to do better and all under Labour authorities. Maybe it is time to give another party a chance,they certainly couldnt do any worse.

As I travel about Glasgow I see the big fancy developments, expensive flats and houses, big luxurious hotels which all add to the illusion that Glasgow is doing fine when the fact is for many citizens the nearest they will get to them is from the outside looking in.

Im not advocating any party. On a personal level I gave up voting a long time ago.

my mother stayed in easterhouse she died three years ago aged eighty seven and she still had no central heating so she would sit in the kitchen and put the gas on, when i would visit her as i stay in london it was a nightmare going to have a bath i could not allow my mother to stay like that and took her to london, when in glasgow and drive around the east end i think what a dumpi could not agree with you more about labour councilers let glasgow flourish what a joke
