WHAT on earth is a teacher doing marching primary school children around the streets of Glasgow for three hours and making them hold up placards with anti-austerity slogans? they should be learning to read, write and enjoy being children, not being used in some political campaign. Keep politics out of the classroom.
Shona, Glasgow SO reader Alfie Mullin thinks Scotland shouldn't bother trying to compete at othersports because we're not very good at football? What sort of message is that sending out? So we just give up and get back on the sofa? Alan, Peebles I TURNED to your TV pages on Tuesday and was shocked to see that the entire evening on STV was dominated by live coverage of an England friendly against Italy. Bad enough for a supposedly Scottish channel - but there followed highlights of the same football match for fully one hour before bedtime. If this isn't yet another attempt to Anglicise us all, I don't know what is.
Mike Thomson, Uddingston, near Glasgow 8DA I WAS quite impressed by Jim Murphy's concise and confident answers on last followed week's Question Time. As for Janet Street-Porter, who spouted her usual vitriolic tirades about Scots getting too much money from London, she could give Jeremy Clarkson lessons in pig ignorance. P. Hall, East Kilbride SO Gordon Brown again raises his head and says Labour are the only party who can deliver social justice in scotland. The very same party who danced in delight with the Tories and Lib Dems when the referendum result was announced. Aye right.
