@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions 'Scots Lore' (1895) was a magazine run from Bothwell St, Glasgow. Lots of random information in there.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions ‘Memorial Catalogue of the Old Glasgow Exhibition 1894’ (1896) is fantastic for old letters, manuscripts & images of varying sites around Glasgow. There's one in particular at the top of Buchanan st @ Sauchiehall st but all that's there is a cottage.

@PlanetBGlasgow @tradougcions ‘Select Views on the River Clyde’ (1830) is just what you assume from the title. Plenty of information about the history of each town the author passes through.

Three important, personal and academic milestones for me today. It is 2 years today since I joined @lawstrath as a Professor of Law. Fantastic colleagues and students. A pleasure to be in #Glasgow and #Scotland: a vibrant, welcoming and European place.
The EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement comes into force today. My first conference presentation (also in Glasgow) and publications was on this. Contemporary relevance? This deal has been 20 years in the making (take note, Brexit Britain). japanesestudies.org.uk/articles/2005/…
Two years exactly since I left @lawsheffield, my research on the academic impact of #Erasmus and study abroad based on 1300+ graduating students from Sheffield over 5 years is out. Clear evidence that students who go abroad achieve better degree results. tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10…

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their jobs properly & then decided to take the law into their own hands. The result of this decision has led to events stranger than fiction

#BBCNews #Skynews #Itvnews #Channel4News #ThisMorning #TheresaMay #UKGov #LBC
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

1/"Ian Paisley apologises at supporters' meeting" bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northe… "Mimicking the actions of the Conservative MP Boris Johnson, a number of Mr Paisley's supporters served tea & biscuits to the waiting media."Does that seem like taking the piss' to you? #JustSaying #Brexit
2/ "The North Antrim MP could face a by-election if 10% of his constituents sign a petition. A recall ballot, where voters can sign a petition calling for a by-election, has been opened.The recall petition is the first in UK parliamentary history." #Brexit #Northernireland #Derry
3/ "In politics they say when you are explaining you are often losing the argument. In recent weeks Ian Paisley has been doing a lot of explaining.
This meeting was organised by supporters of Ian Paisley so the suspended MP was speaking to a very receptive audience. He was in

We are delighted to announce that the first #MND clinical drug trial in Scotland, in over 20 years, has launched! 👏 MND Scotland is committing over £1.5 million into bringing MND drug trials to Scotland, with #MIROCALS being the first investment. mndscotland.org.uk/latest/news/fi…
#MIROCALS is a clinical trial currently taking place in the UK and France. It is testing a new potential therapy for #ALS, the most common form of #MND. The drug being tested is called Interleukin-2, which is already used for some types of cancer.
Now recruiting people with #MND in #Glasgow, who meet the criteria, the study will focus on types of immune cells in the blood, which are capable of influencing the speed at which #ALS progresses. Find out more about the trial here: mndscotland.org.uk/mirocals

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Hello #Glasgow, you’re looking braw. It’s great to see such a broad protest against Donald Trump. A huge crowd in protest against Donald Trump.
It was nice to finally meet @R_McCormack and @IainR0bertson - and to see so many familiar faces.
I saw representatives from @ScottishLabour, @scotgp and @theSNP, trade unions and the non-affiliated, but there was nobody speaking out against Trump from @RuthDavidsonMSP’s @ScotTories.

Some thoughts on the revised planning application for the Custom House on Clyde St #Glasgow.

You can view it here: publicaccess.glasgow.gov.uk/online-applica…

Image by Chris Firth via flickr.com/photos/migrand…
Dating to 1840 the Custom House is one of the oldest surviving buildings on the Clyde as it flows through Glasgow. It has been some years since it performed its original function, latterly used by the PF & then as offices, it has been empty for around a decade now.
The application site encompasses the adjoining tenement on the corner of Dixon St which has just been demolished (I’ll get to that further into the thread), I’ve outlined the site in red. Green & yellow are currently under construction, blue & pink have proposals approved.

Photographer #RaymondDepardon visited #Glasgow in 1980 on assignment from the Sunday Times. The job was to photograph affluence & poverty, neither were something Glasgow was short of. But the affluence of Glasgow in 1980 was discreet, largely retreated to neighbouring suburbs.
This once metropolis had torn - and was continuing to tear- itself apart. The brick and ashlar edifices that lined the gridded streets, the great architectural baubles and trinkets that two centuries of commerce & industry had built were disappearing. So too were its people.
How could you plan for life when there's no certainty your workplace, house, your street, your entire district will stand for any length of time. What is hope when decrepitude stands on every other corner, whole streets of empty tenements lined up waiting for their execution.

Dear @BBCR4Feedback
Tomorrow I will post a package of #StopBrexit paraphernalia to you
The materials are used by the Remain campaign & have been crowdfunded
I will also post prints of photos from the last 21 months (see thread below) so you can see what you haven't been covering
1/It has taken me several hours to compile nearly 2 years of photos from the #Remain campaign into this 22 page document, however i felt it necessary to do so in order to illustrate to the #BBC the extent and commitment of our campaign which you haven't been acknowledging.
2/July 2016 #StopBrexit march in #London
