A few years back Fife council spunked £135k on this piece of shit in Dunfermline beside the bus station;

It benefits absolutely no one. No one likes it. No one can use it for anything. It serves no purpose. It's supposed to be a bit of 'public art'. It's just hideous.

That's Leishman's gallows.

Nothing, anywhere will beat this:

An enclosed play area for a teenage pupil with learning difficulties and autism, which was described as a "cage" by his MSP, has been removed. The 18-year-old's parents raised funds for a safe play area at the Nicolson Institute in Stornoway, on Lewis.
Western Isles Council - Comhairle nan Eilean Siar - said it wanted to apologise unreservedly to the family.

 

 

I mean, at some point there must have been a meeting where they agreed that that was a good idea.

Holy f*ck that’s  hillarious as it is harrowing.  Not suprised its Lewis though.

Our new Tory administration are doing same in Perthshire.

I hope they push it through before realising land fill tax and loss of grants for hitting recycling targets massively outweighs any savings.

Some students in conjunction with the uni are trying to get planning permission to renovate a derilct property into a student pub on the High St. It looks like it's going to get rejected due to some of the shite the NIMBYs have put on the the Council website.

"The University students will probably take up vandalism." was my personal favourite, considering the sentence previous was "It would mean that the St Machar Bar would lose customers"

Those two statements completely contradict one another.

Aberdeen City Council are a shower of shite.

To be fair, it's a poorly thought through idea - it's a listed granite building right opposite King's College between the catholic chaplaincy (with resident priests) and a private house. It's not derelict, but for some reason the university stopped renting it out years ago. Considering the Student Hub is just around the corner, they could just reopen the bar in there or even in the  sports pavilion. I'm an Aberdeen graduate and still think it's not a workable plan. The worst thing the students association did was closing the Gallowgate union years ago, even that's still mostly abandoned.

I never saw the point of having a union that was miles away from the main campus or halls of residence to be honest. Once you've trekked in all the way from Hillhead, there's plenty of other places in town to go to which are more appealing.

I may have slightly addled memories of the union, given the cheapness of the drink, but it was always rammed in my early student days. Used to get some good acts in the Loft, spin-the-wheel night in Sivells (with the fantastic murals) was awesome. The rot set in when (this is just my opinion) the Students' Association stopped holding event there because (allegedly) they got backhanders from Liquid nighclub and other places. It then started to be randomly closed during the week, so you'd never know if you'd get in. Numbers just tailed off after that and it was shut within a year. There was that brief attempt at opening the place on Littlejohn Street, but that died a death as well. There's the old Central Refectory in Old Aberdeen that got done up into the Student Hub, apparently it has a bar, but it shuts at six!

Our lot sound even less organised. We've still got 3.5 years left of this farce :lol:

Are you in the Carse of Gowrie ward? I seem to remember ripping the pish out of the local Tory Councillor in the Courier a while back. He was an utterly duplicitous c**t.

The Wheel of Booze - memories! :lol: I had many a drunken night in the old union on both Friday and Saturday nights many years ago. Was gutted when it closed in 2004. I can still remember the sticky floors of the factory and the fantastic decoration inside Sivells. I think they really suffered when more and more folk started pre drinking and just went straight into town to go to a club and bypassed the union. Crazy that the building remains empty over 13 years after it closed.

The 20mph speed limit in Edinburgh boils my piss.

Fair point, with the amount of wankers it should be increased to around 50mph with two free pedestrian hits per annum especially around the Ravelston area.

That area is rife with pedestrians that think they have the right of way just by stepping onto the tarmac ; you would be doing a public service in most cases.

It was more of a go at areas like Arthur's Seat. That and the council's lack of transparency with some of the roads still be 30mph zones, because a fair few drivers will stick to 20mph on Ferry/Telford/Costrophine Roads.

Tbf you wouldn't think it's even a bar, it's where students get coffee, In the two years here I've not seen one person order a pint from "Union Brew". Atm the Bobbin is acting as the unofficial union.

She is a fuckwit  of an MP, thick as shite and basically got in on the 'NO means NO' vote, and Mike Weir - whilst of course some won't agree with his party, he was a genuinely good MP who saw behind party lines.

TBH, I couldn't give a shit about the council, its quite funny though seeing them fucking up things. The No Surrender Angus types voted for this, so let them have their cake. I feel for the ones who didn't vote for them, but maybe in 3 and a bit years, they'll vote them out.

I mind of the 'Angus Alliance' crisis, and they took down the Saltires for the Angus flag.  :lol:

Aye that was a total primary School level shambles. The Rainbow Alliance set about binning everything the previous council had done pretty much out of spite.

You could get a great game of 1 on 1  fitba in that...
