Those steps provide an important focal point for community, adding some real character to the shopping area.
Many thousands of people signed a petition to keep the steps but the council ignored them. They forget who they are working for.
While there is nothing intrinsically offensive about the neo- fascist facade of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and its adjoining steps, it is the littering thereof with grubby and inebriated refugees from Paddy’s Market and other remnants of long- gone and unlamented manifestations of working-class culture and politics that have detracted from efforts to reinvent the city.
The removal of the steps is long overdue and the city council is to be congratulated on this brave move to help create a bright and modern city for the new millennium.
