Feb 28th 2010 7:14PM All of the positives mentioned in the article are true. However, I recently lived and worked in Glasgow for a year and let me tell you, there is a big difference living in a city and visiting as a tourist. Watch the 2006 Scottish film, Red Road, and you will see what Glasgow is really all about. Also, be prepared for being bombarded with litter filled streets, broken down buildings, vacant fields full of garbage and loads of grafitti. Oh yes, plenty of drug addicts and beggars to liven up the mix day or night. The economy is pitiful with even minumum wage jobs difficult to find and the government buraucracy could drive one insane. The weather is awful too. I spent the winter leaving the house in pitch dark, freezing rain and 60 mph wind gusts to get to the bus stop. It is a hard hard life to be had in Glasgow.
