BACK to the future then, eh (Glasgow will see a £59m fleet of new electric buses next year, Glasgow Times online)? 

All those electrically-powered trolley buses we had in the 50s and 60s then, which were done away with by the vandals at the then Glasgow Corporation, which destroyed

Glasgow’s many beautiful buildings instead of renovating them and did away with the trolleys because they were nicknamed the silent death, and 60 years after leaving us, the newer versions are back.

The oldies who millennials think are wasteful were ahead of our time using trolleys, trams and reusable glass ginger bottles, no plastics or polystyrene wrappers littering the streets. Yip, ahead of our time.

I NOTE the council helping volunteers with kits and CCTV cameras to identify fly-tipping. 

This is the same old stuff recommended years ago. 

There is no creativity or imagination from the leader of the council with the new campaign.  

Does the leader walk around with her eyes shut or not see the mountains of litter, graffiti on every wall or corner and the bundles of bulk sitting in backcourts?

IN response to Billy Gold’s post regarding my previous letter intimating that hand hygiene should be a way of life...

It was not my intention to  criticise the hospitality industry, which would’ve been churlish of me considering I use the industry’s facilities almost daily during normal circumstances.

I don’t doubt many establishments go over and beyond what is required to ensure the safety of their staff and customers, which is both welcomed and appreciated by all.

I was merely pointing out the basic requirements for all premises to reduce the transmission of viruses and infections to ensure hand hygiene becomes a way of life.

OVER two days I counted around 100 teenagers “playing football” on the locked-up school pitch next to my house. 

I wouldn’t mind if they were just playing football, but they’ve got their stereos on full blast and just leave their litter all over the pitch after they are finished.

I miss the days when youngsters wouldn’t even risk going on to a school pitch in case the janitor chased them off.

We’re in a lockdown – it’s not a free-for-all for youngsters to just have a party every weekend on private property. It’s beyond a joke now.
