Politi­cians owe us a Christ­mas present

Evening Times - - NEWS -

INOTE all new MPs in the Glas­gow bound­ary. I beg if they can do a bet­ter job than the First Min­is­ter. I don’t see much im­prove­ment in Go­van­hill given the amount of money spent on it.

The streets in Glas­gow still have lit­ter and dog foul­ing, and I doubt very much if the coun­cil has thought ahead to have ad­di­tional re­sources to cope with fly-tipped trees and over­flow­ing bins. The roads in the city have more pot holes than ever given the cold weather. The amount of peo­ple rough sleep­ing and beg­ging in the city cen­tre is at the high­est lev­els I’ve seen and I don’t see the coun­cil do­ing much to im­prove it.

Maybe, as a be­lated Christ­mas present to the cit­i­zens, the coun­cil and politi­cians can make Glas­gow miles bet­ter again.

I AM sure that this demon­stra­tion will stop any war with Iran (‘No war with Iran’ protest to be held on Glas­gow’s Buchanan Street steps). A bunch of left-wing snowflakes bang­ing on about Don­ald Trump in Glas­gow in the rain? That will tell them.

SO do you think a war with Iran would be a good thing?

Iran is noth­ing like Iraq – and how did that turn out again?

Iran would most likely wipe the floor with us and that’s com­ing from an ex sol­dier. The ter­rain in Iran is very dif­fer­ent to Iraq with lots of moun­tains and very lit­tle desert. Fight­ing there would be a night­mare. Iran also has a very good air de­fence sys­tem, which has been able to in­ter­cept Amer­i­can drones, con­trol and land them.

The Ira­nian Army is a lot more pro­fes­sional than the Iraqi army, so you wouldn’t have mass sur­ren­ders if we did go to war with them.

Their two main back­ers are Rus­sia and China. Rus­sia, China and Iran would wipe the floor with Amer­ica and Bri­tain. We only have 82,000 troops.

WHO’S telling you that there will be an all out war? The me­dia? Be­cause Rus­sia and China sure don’t want to get in­volved. Iran ranks be­low Brazil and Italy (at 14th) for strength, so con­ven­tion­ally, it wouldn’t last long.

Iran is more likely to go down the tech route, and try to dis­rupt through web­sites, etc. Or con­tinue its ter­ror­ist ac­tiv­i­ties (per­haps look­ing for “soft sites”) ... some­thing, oddly enough, that the guy they’ve just buried was their ex­pert on.

GO­ING to war with Iran is not some­thing to get ag­i­tated about. The Lord Provost of Glas­gow spend­ing a few grand on clothes... THAT’S some­thing to get ag­i­tated about.
