Shock at Commonwealth Games bid to demolish Glasgow towers for opening ceremony


Everything about this debacle is wrong and sad. This act, if it allowed to go ahead, will become a symbol of the city of Glasgow. It depicts the city's own failure to house people properly as a means of entertainment. The reduction of all of the lives associated with Red Road is compressed into one sad, pointless, incomprehensible spectacle. And I can't help but note the Orwellian doublespeak in the press release (publicised before the residents were notified) which uses words like "Ambitious", "Proud" "Noble" "Respectful" to describe something that only the most eye-swivellingly stupid of people could conceive of as anything less than callous, sinister, cowardly and full of self-loathing.
