Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

Our re­sponse to Buz­zfeed’s ar­ti­cle say­ing there was no good rea­son to visit Ruther­glen re­ceived a pre­dictably mixed re­sponse on so­cial media this week. Here’s what you had to say: “Well said Dou­glas!”- Lynn Sem­ple (via Face­book)

“Nice list, but Shaw­field Sta­dium is a dump and dog rac­ing is in­hu­mane. I don’t think it’s a good rea­son to visit any­where.”-James Lees (via Face­book)

“Ten that push­ing it a bit didn’t know there was that many bus stops in Ruther­glen to get out of it”- John Robert Creighton (via Face­book)

“well done buz­zfeed. Hav­ing been brought up in Burn­side I can agree with it all”- San­dra John­son (via Twit­ter)

“there’s some good churches too ;)”Alis­tair May (via Twit­ter)

“Your own is a fine ex­am­ple Alis­tair. De­lighted to see @Dou­glasDickie1 con­tinue to stick up for The Royal Burgh.”-Mal­colm Macaskill (via Twit­ter)

“Take no no­tice of Buz­zfeed, I’m look­ing for­ward to Bring­ing our #Tom­myCoop­erShow to #Ruther­glen soon.”- Gareth Jones (via Twit­ter)

“Ex­cel­lent from @Ruglen­Re­former!”Sylvie Met­calf (via Twit­ter)

“You know you’ve made it when you get a through dress­ing down from the @ Ruglen­Re­former.”- Ian Dunn (via Twit­ter)

“Gosh 10/10 guys for this. It sounds idyl­lic?”- Maxie (via Twit­ter)

“I see @Ruglen­Re­former has come out swing­ing against Buz­zfeed. Add the Black Poppy and Bread­win­ners to the list! - Kieron Higgins (via Twit­ter)

“Black Poppy is on it! Ruther­glen still got noth­ing on EK...”- Shona Mitchell (via Twit­ter)

“So @Ruglen­Re­former says that grey­hound rac­ing is a good rea­son to visit Ruther­glen. Is advertising cru­elty the best you’ve got”- Paul (via Twit­ter) Our story about Mar­garet Ferrier ask­ing if the UK Gov­ern­ment had plans in place if there was a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum also had you talk­ing:

“Maybe she should speak to her con­stituents who over­whelm­ingly voted against her party’s plan to split up the United King­dom. What hap­pened to a once in a life­time vote? Where would we be just now if it had hap­pened?? We would be in an even worse state than what Greece is just now.”- An­drew Irvine (via Face­book)

“The prob­lem is that 55 to 45 is a very close mar­gin, it only needs a 5% shift to change that. You can bet the Gov­ern­ment have plans for a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum they would be ne­glect­ing their duty if they did not. But it will not hap­pen be­fore the EU ref­er­en­dum.”- Elaine Ni­col (via Face­book)

“She asked what WM plans were. Pity Re­former can’t take any­thing SNP do at face value and not add Lab spin”- Ron Strathdee (via Twit­ter)

“Think of it as a wee heads up. :-)”Paul-G- (via Twit­ter) Fi­nally, our story about res­i­dents on Greenlees Road want­ing traf­fic man­age­ment mea­sures in­stalled was a pop­u­lar story:

“This has been hap­pen­ing since I lived at the end of Brown­side Road on the cor­ner with Greenlees Road and that was from 1986-1991, hor­rific crashes and some­thing should be done. Traf­fic lights at this junction might help too”- Gil­lian Hodge (via Face­book)

“This is part of SLC pro­posed safe walk­ing route for our kids walk­ing from half­way to Cathkin high and Stonelaw high. They should be as­sumed of them­selves.!”- Lynn Colquhoun (via Face­book)

“This is such a bad junction. Driv­ers can­not see clearly up the hill on Greenlees Road at this junction com­ing out of Brown­side Road & if there’s any­one driv­ing too fast down the hill what chance have folk got!! Traf­fic lights at least are needed here be­fore there’s a fa­tal tragedy!!!”- Tracy Bax­ter (via Face­book)

“Such a hor­ri­ble junction traf­fic lights would be a bless­ing. I re­mem­ber one of the lol­lipop ladies ac­tu­ally got knocked down at this junction what chance has a child got” - Jac­qui Craig (via Face­book)

“And our kids are go­ing to be ex­pected to walk this “safe route”?? Ab­so­lute joke!!”- Lorna Slicer (via Face­book) Go to www.face­book.com/Ruther­glen­Re­former or www.twit­ter.com/Ruglen­Re­former and get in­volved in the de­bate.
