BIN THIS INDECENT PROPOSAL.

Byline: Bob Shields

I HAD to laugh when I read that Glasgow club boss Stefan King's plans for developing one of the city's favourite parks will be "in keeping with the Botanic Gardens".

What's wrong with simply "keeping the Botanic Gardens the Botanic Gardens".

I can't believe King's bid for a nightclub in an educational park is getting house room with the city planners. Glasgow is from the Gaelic "Glas-ghu" - "Dear Green Place".

That's something the city council shouldn't forget - assuming some of them even knew it in the first place.

Then again, they could fast track this outrageous proposal.

And a historic part of Glasgow will be destroyed just in time for the Commonwealth Games and thousands of athletes and a million visitors.
