If you mean what I think you mean, then that's a residential tower FIN, projects over the river.

We're updating our site to include an "if only" section. In it, will be the Bridge, the Parliament and Sligo........ James's quotation will also be added.

It was part of our proposals that went down the toilet with the unanimous choice.

Not much call for that kind of stuff in Glasgow. I think the local heritage officer objected.

Bit long What? Nice sentiment but does'nt exactly trip off the tongue.

C'mon lads this is the land of O'Casey and the Poor Mouth after all. All we've got is Burns

Well, that could be true.

According though to this month's GQ architects are the new love gods. Of course that just means the magazine has'nt yet opened it's office in Edinburgh.

Need to get me one of those smiley things Paul, that could be where I'm going wrong

continuing the appropriate 'bone' theme for 'rogers'' bridge, how about 'bony & clyde' the fearsome duo of pristine iconitecture and dank river....cheesy but has to be better than horseshoe....or Neptune's Sway.

Tradeston, typical day in 2004, windy & wet:
Mither 'go and get us a pint of milk across the way Johnny'.
Son 'aye'
Half an hour later:
Mither 'what took ye? yev been gon oors an yer drippin wet, ye fall in or somein??


Time for a new thread...what about specific changes in the Planning Law to extricate aesthetics from people untrained to judge?

I am sure if it was about three years ago, it would have got a really original name along the lines of the Millenium Bridge, so why not call it the 'Post-millenium bridge' bridge!!!;)

I have edited this because in retrospect it is not funny at all. My apologies
