Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Science centres still seem to be around

Glasgow Science Centre (there are others, but I’ll just refer to the one I’m closest to) opened back in 2001, and did seem to struggle despite good intentions.

By 2008, the happiest of the naysers were rubbing their hand with glee, and predicting the end, with closure not far off, and pointing to the laying off of 18 staff back in 2004.

Funding then was being CUT, by 40% from £1.7 million in 2007 to £1.4 million in 2008, with more cuts due in the next two years.

But we were then told that the four science centres (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen) would share £250,000 of extra funding,

The science centres are still with us, and since I can’t recall ever seeing any further stories of their imminent demise, I assume they are doing quite nicely these days.

While I don’t visit the place (it really seems to be aimed at kids), I have been nearby, and it always looked fairly busy, and was even hosting special events.

They’re even having money thrown at them…

Scotland’s four science centres have been given a cash boost of £2.63m.

The latest grant from the Scottish government comes during British Science Week and brings the total funding given to the attractions over the last four years to £10m.

The money for 2019-20 is aimed at making Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) accessible to everyone.

It includes efforts to engage pupils in rural and deprived areas.

As well as an operational grant for the centres in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen, the fund includes:

• A schools transport subsidy, to support pupils in rural and deprived areas accessing the centres

• A community subsidy, to support centres’ engagement with a greater diversity of people

Science centres boost takes funding to £10m total

I never really got the point of these centres years ago, even after having a pre-opening tour of Glasgow.

I think the name evoked a different image in my head, of a serious scientific development/research hub for businesses, as opposed to the educational places they actually are, with a completely different purpose.

Maybe a different name would have helped (me).

Something along the lines of The Big Idea perhaps – oh, maybe not, that idea didn’t work too well.

Glasgow’s Lend/Lease plan wins approval

No need to go into any real detail since I went over this one when it was proposed.

There might have been more of a story had the proposal NOT been adopted – it would almost have been worth the disaster to see just how those who might have opposed the plan were able to ‘magic’ up some £550 million out of thin air.

Then again, as with all such things, those who create such problems are seldom the ones who then have to find a solution – they just sit smugly on the sidelines, safe in the knowledge that they’re not responsible for fixing problems they create.

So, the list of properties was announced, and under the proposals the following venues would be transferred to the City Property portfolio:

  • Emirates Arena
  • Riverside Museum
  • SEC Armadillo
  • Scotstoun Leisure Centre
  • Tollcross International Swimming Centre
  • Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
  • Glasgow Museums Resource Centre
  • City Halls
  • Toryglen Football Centre
  • Gorbals Leisure Centre
  • Bellahouston Leisure Centre

Equal pay deal: Glasgow City Council approves £548m ‘remortgage’ plan

While the plan will see Glasgow bear the cost of this pay deal (not the current council’s fault, but a legacy from its lovely predecessor – the one that made so many Glaswegians refer to the council as a ‘Bunch of crooks’), it does mean that it will only (sorry for using the word ‘only’) have to find a relatively small amount every year, although the net result is that it will be paying for longer, so the total bill over the period will be greater (than if it had been able to manage a quicker plan).

At a meeting on Thursday, city leader Susan Aitken said this would be one of the most significant issues councillors would ever have to consider.

She said: “I’m delighted to have won backing for a deal that finally delivers pay justice for thousands of women in our workforce.

“When I became council leader in 2017, I promised I’d bring to an end more than a decade of inaction on equal pay.

“A year ago, we began negotiations and, today, the council formally agreed a plan to pay women at Glasgow City Council what they are owed.

“That starts to put right a wrong that has damaged the council, its workforce and the city for too long.

“I want to thank the women for their determination; their dedication to the city and its people, and for trusting me to deliver what they have always deserved.”

Also among the building that the council expects to become part of the City Property portfolio are Scotstoun Leisure Centre, Tollcross International Swimming Centre, City Halls, Toryglen Football Centre, Gorbals Leisure Centre and Bellahouston Leisure Centre.

The council said it would still be managing the venues and that visitors would see no day-to-day changes.

Glasgow ‘to sell’ concert hall to pay £500m equal pay bill

It’s just a shame the bill can’t be handed to the ones responsible for us being where we are today.

They have effectively walked off laughing into the sunset – and played a ‘Get out of jail for free’ card.

Funny thing…

The only place on that list which I have been in is Riverside! (Even with a fence around it.)

Now enjoy the moron’s take on this deal

Fortunately, I seldom assign anything a political ‘colour’ but, as expected, the morons that live under the stones of The Scotsman’s Moron Comment section leapt into full ‘ignorant’ mode later, and if you want a good laugh, then I recommend having a look through their truly brilliant reinterpretations of how this sort of deal works, matched only be their complete and utter ignorance of where the need to find this money arose in the first place

Glasgow – Mugged into hosting yet another sporting event

A classic radio comedy series was broadcast by the BBC between 1962 and 1977, about two lazy, bungling, incompetent civil servants, “Number One” – Roland Hamilton-Jones (Wilfrid Hyde-White) and later Deryck Lennox-Brown (Deryck Guyler), “Number Two” – Richard Lamb (Richard Murdoch).

The 8th Series (1972) began with an episode called ‘The Conference Trick’

Lennox-Brown and Lamb gets the job of representing Great Britain at a conference which will divide the surface of planet Venus between the countries of the world. They were chosen especially to fail, since Great Britain doesn’t have funds for the colonization of Venus. Yet, they somehow failed to fail… and instead of coming back with nothing, came back with rights to the whole planet!

I tend to think of all the other host countries breathing a sigh of relief every time Glasgow wins the right to host (and PAY for) yet another period of upheaval and disruption for its citizens.

The other host cities managed to make it LOOK as if they wanted to win, but were really playing their cards carefully, knowing Glasgow has some sort of mental failure when it comes to seeing the true cost of hosting all this nonsense, and every time Gasgow wins ANOTHER of these events, they all head home, laughing.

Glasgow will become the first city to host the inaugural combined World Championships in 2023, cycling’s world governing body the UCI has announced.

The event will bring together 13 existing World Championships for the first time, including road, track, BMX and mountain biking, turning the host city “into a true world cycling capital” according to UCI president David Lappartient.

Last month, Glasgow Live reported that Glasgow City Council and EventScotland approached the UCI about hosting the event .

In a report to the city administration committee, Deputy Leader of the council, David McDonald, said: “This will be the biggest cycling event in the world with over 100 countries represented and over 200 world champions being crowned during the course of the championships.

“The huge media interest will guarantee worldwide broadcast coverage delivering massive international profile for both Glasgow and Scotland.

Aye, Right!

If you say so.

I’m not wasting time commenting again.

Council has to spend £6 million BEFORE the old meat market site is developed

At least it’s not money down the drain, like the £15 million being extorted from Glasgow City Council for YET ANOTHER sporting fiasco event.

But is interesting to see that while it has to close the Winter Garden at the People’s Palace while it find £7.5 million to carry out restoration and maintenance, it seems there’s no problem in finding almost £6 million to make a derelict site (which has lain derelict for years) attractive to developers.

While I’m NOT going to make a silly remark about this spend, because the council IS responsible for providing a number of essential services to the area, as part of the city’s infrastructure, I am going to query whether or not it should be responsible for picking up the WHOLE of thee bill, since any developer that subsequently takes up the option of the site is gaining a ‘free’ benefit of taxpayer’s money – by which I mean MY Council Tax. And I won’t see ANY benefit from that.

Just Sayin’.

These are days of austerity, where funding is tight, spending is being cut, budgets are shrinking, and more costs are being levied on those who are responsible for them.

GLASGOW City Council is inviting contractors to bid for a £5.7million project as part of plans to transform the Meat Market site in the East End.

The infrastructure and public realm contract covers construction of new roads, high quality hard and soft landscaping, rain gardens, architectural feature lighting and street furniture.

The work, which is expected to take 12 months to carry out, will also include street lighting, sewers, a drainage system, water and gas mains, electricity distribution — including a new sub-station — and telecommunications ducts,

The project is required to make the land bounded by Duke Street, Bellgrove Street and Melbourne Street attractive to developers.

£5.7MILLION Contract To Flesh Out Glasgow Meat Market Site

Public consultation on plans for 250 flats has already started.

I know I collected pics of the remaining wall and gate in Bellgrove Street, but just can’t find them, so have to go with something similar, and already seen.

I’m guessing this bit in Duke Street survived since there was a substation behind the wall.

Those old sheds behind won’t (survive).

Pay deal could see Glasgow City Council adopt leaseback option for properties

While the old fogies will no doubt be up in arms and having strokes, palpitations, and panic attacks, we live in a different world from that of two or three generations ago, and it’s refreshing to see Glasgow City Council is not entrenched in the dead-end thinking it suffered from in the past. Then, it was almost frightening to look in the papers (yes, newspapers) and see the next ‘Tale of the Unbelievable’.

It may come as a surprise to some, but money doesn’t actually grow on trees, nor can it be magicked up out of thin air by consulting the latest Harry Potter novel.

On top of whatever else ‘new money’ the council has to come up with – cough cough Winter Garden cough cough – there’s now something in the order of £550 million to settle a pay deal extorted by threats of strike action (oh don’t be so childish – call it what it is!).

There’s money in property, but it needs thought to realise it as negotiable funds.

If you own it, like a spare house or second home, you can sell it – but that doesn’t work if it’s your only property, and you want to live in it.

If you need to keep it, then you need to sell it and agree terms to live in it. That way you get a pot, can ‘enjoy’ the benefits, and just toss a few pennies at the new owner.

This has been done on the Continent for years, and there have been some famous tales reported in the media where an older person has had the last laugh on the ‘buyer’. Instead of ‘popping their clogs’ after a few years, they’ve lived to a really ripe old age, and the buyer can’t increase the charge they make to let the old soul live in the property, evict them, or end the deal, which has no limit and only matures when the person dies.

An equal pay deal costing Glasgow City Council more than £500 million could be funded by selling some its most popular venues to an arm’s-length company.

The deal in principle came after thousands of council workers walked out on a 48-hour strike in October to settle the long-running dispute over women’s pay.

On Friday, the local authority published a report to go before members of the City Administration Committee next week, which stated the settlement will cost an anticipated £548 million.

City Property Glasgow Investments LLP (CPGI) was requested by the council to consider what capital could be realised from the property assets of both parties.

The proposals include “the option of sale and leaseback of certain council operational properties”, meaning the company would acquire sites such as the Riverside Museum, SEC Armadillo and Emirates Arena.

Council leader Susan Aitken said: “I’ve always been clear that, although settling equal pay has been about delivering justice for thousands of the women in our workforce, meeting the substantial cost of doing that must be fair for citizens.

“Releasing the potential of our property, while keeping it in the city’s ownership, protects services and the future of these valued assets.”

Long-term loans will fund CPGI’s purchases, with the council’s lease payments meeting the borrowing cost.

The paper will go before the committee on Thursday February 6 as discussions continue with potential funders.

Glasgow council considers selling venues to fund equal pay deal

There could be fun to come as this is considered.

And it’s already started, if you’re prepared to offend your eyes and take at look at the sad drivel which appeared in the usual Scotsman’s Moron Comment section after the article.

If Lend/Lease was good enough for World War II, then… 😉

Glaswegian logic – Ye cannae whack it!

Brilliant story spotted this evening, and probably a complete lack of understanding of how funding works.

While I think some previous posts I’ve made make it clear I’d far sooner see the money being squandered on YET ANOTHER outsider sporting event being parachuted into Glasgow (where I doubt the citizens want it) spent elsewhere, since a mere £7.5 million would restore the People’s Palace Winter Garden AND leave £7.5 million to spare for something else, my past experience in business and winning grants and funding suggests this is not even a starter, let alone an option.

The reality is that most of these awards are subject to the funds being used for a specified purpose.

If not, they are subject to cancellation, or repayment if they have been misused or misappropriated and used for something else.

Sorry, but that’s the REAL world.

Campaigners looking to save a Dennistoun swimming pool from closure have called on the council to prioritise protecting local facilities.

The Save Whitehill Pool initiative made the appeal to Glasgow City Council after £15 million was approved last week for Glasgow to bid to host the Union Cycliste Internationale Cycling World Championships in 2023.

If the Council’s bid is successful, the first UCI Championships would combine 13 existing individual cycling world championships into one event.

But campaigners are calling for the money to instead be used to protect facilities around Glasgow after a leaked council budget document showed that Whitehill Pool is one of several facilities facing closure with Dennistoun also potentially losing Alexandra Park Golf Course and Glasgow Club Haghill.

Campaign to save Dennistoun pool calls on council to use money to protect local facilities

It shouldn’t come as a great surprise.

After all, if you could do this so easily, without legal conditions on the award, then there would be nothing to stop the unscrupulous from submitting a wonderful, popular, funding application for something everybody would approve in an instant…

Then running off with the cash and using it for something that they wouldn’t have a had a hope in hell of getting money for.

Time to stop throwing council/tax millions at sporting events

Ever since a close watch of the spending reports on the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games stupidity, and learning that the organisers are NOT the ones who fund their fun, but the poor mugs of the host city who foot the bill, I’ve been amazed that few realise this, and even fewer object to having their money (taxes) squandered on the promised/claimed benefits they supposedly bring.

A few days ago it was revealed that Glasgow was being coerced into pouring some £15 million into another ‘Sport Black Hole’, to host the first World Cycling Championships in 2023.

Guess what?

That initial £15 million has already grown by £40 million (so that’s already £55 million, to be blackmailed from partners and the Scottish Government, on the basis that we simply HAVE to host this.

This when the council needs to find £500 million for its recent equal pay settlement, and more importantly, £7.5 million to renovate the Winter Garden of the People’s Palace.

Those behind this money grab MAY just be beginning to realise the people might not be fooled for much longer.

Amidst fears public libraries and swimming pools could close through lack of funding, Glasgow councillors will bid to host a £50 million cycling event.

Glasgow City Council has one week left to convince the Union Cyclist International (UCI) to allow the area to present the inaugural World Cycling Championships in 2023.

The local authority would spend £15 million on the tournament and have to secure the remaining £35 to £40 million from partners and the Scottish Government.

Councillors agreed it would add to the “legacy” of the city but some raised concerns that residents might not be so welcoming with budget cuts looming.

Councillor Archie Graham said: “It is unfortunate congress is next week. This means the council will only have a week to speak to funding partners and the Scottish Government to confirm they will fund the rest of the event.

“We already have challenging budget pressures. I do worry that people will be unimpressed to see the council spending £15 million on a large scale event when their libraries and swimming pools are under threat.

“We need to have a good communication strategy otherwise we will receive a lot of criticism.”

Councillor Elaine McDougall added: “I think this is a flimsy proposal and we need something more concrete.

“I would like more information. I know it will benefit the city overall but will it benefit the public purse?”

Depute Leader of the Council councillor David McDonald said: “It will benefit the social aspect of the city as well as the economy. The council has been asked to fund £12 million of the event, which is costing £45-50 million overall.

“The local authority will then spend a further £3 million engaging with tourists and locals who want to get involved in the games.

Councillor Matt Kerr said: “This is a legacy. Glasgow has undertaken a long journey to get here and to be able to host these events.

“We have developed a very positive relationship with the UCI and as a former road racer I am looking forward to 2023 and the opportunity to take part.

“I have four years to get my act together.”

Glasgow councillors raise budget concerns about World Cycling Championships bid

You have to love that last quote.

You’d never guess the speaker had any self-interest in the proposal…

So should recuse themselves!

More sporty types hold their hands out for Glasgow’s money?

As usual, I can only wonder at the reality of the claims made about this (sport) being ‘Good’ for Glasgow, and how I feel like I’m being treated like an idiot when I read some news.

Or how many people realise that the organisers behind these sporting jamborees don’t have to pay the host city for the privilege of disrupting it, and its residents, for weeks/months/years as it makes ready for them to have a whole week or two of fun at the host city’s expense.

The host coughs up the funding to attract them, and then pays for new venues, modifications to existing venues, any new things (like athletes’ villages), and all the organisation and management – THEN has to supply mindless ranks of thousands of unpaid VOLUNTEERS to staff them for the duration, and they’re daft enough to do it for expenses (maybe).

Are these numbers produced by people/organisations promoting this stuff (and recipients of work/cash), or are they independently audited figures which take into account ALL the costs?

A TRUE reckoning might be enlightening (and maybe shocking).

Seems ‘we’ can always find hundreds of millions for sport promotions…

But can’t find less than £10 million to preserve our own assets, such as Winter Gardens. And one actually right beside a holy sporting venue.

In the last decade Glasgow has invested more than £200m in its sporting venues attracting world-class athletes and international supporters and spectators.

Since 2009, attendances at Glasgow Club sports facilities have increased by more than 50%, meaning more and more adults are taking positive steps to improve their health and wellbeing.

In addition, the number of junior members attending sports clubs across the city has more than quadrupled, demonstrating children are increasingly becoming active in sport at an earlier age.

Sport also adds huge value to the city’s economy contributing approximately £367m and employing around 10,000 people across the sector.

Glasgow bids for European capital of sport title

After all the self-praise these things generate, and all the patting of backs for those involved, we get all those apparently wonderful numbers.

Financial number (claims) which are put into stark perspective when we read that…

Celtic contribute around £165m to Scotland’s economy annually – more than the 2014 Commonwealth Games – according to a report commissioned by the club.

Let me repeat that…

more than the 2014 Commonwealth Games

I should add I don’t care about sport/Celtic/events, BUT I do care when I read stuff that makes me feel as if I am being treated like an idiot, which I do whenever I read about these endless bids for sporting events, and the ‘magic’ numbers relating to their finances and after effects.

Maybe I should be indulging in some of the Buckfast seen below when reading those figures.

Time to make events pay their way, NOT the hosts – especially when our Winter Gardens are rotting

I wonder if people are generally aware that lucky events like the Commonwealth Games (dumped on Glasgow in 2014), The Olympic Games (probably never coming to Glasgow, thank goodness), and now the first ever World Cycling Championships (set for August 2023, don’t have to PAY for the privilege of disrupting the cities they take place, or all the work needed to allow them to take place.

Glassgow was ‘taken’ for something like £300+ million by the Commonwealth Games, and is now being asked for £15 million in advance of the cycling event.

As usual, the promoters are blackmailing the hosts with promised of wonderful returns and benefits which they will lose out on if they don’t throw money at the organisers, and bring the event Glasgow.

GLASGOW councillors are being urged to approve £15million towards the city hosting most of the events in the first ever World Cycling Championships, taking place in August 2023.

The world governing body for cycling, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), revealed last year a plan to combine around a dozen existing individual cycling world championships into one major event every four years.

Following an approach by Glasgow and EventScotland, the UCI has given an exclusive opportunity to Glasgow/Scotland to present its case to host the first championships. The final submission, including funding commitments from the major partners, has to be made by February 2019.

A report to city councillors stated: “This will be the biggest cycling event in the world with over 100 countries represented and over 200 World Champions being crowned during the course of the Championships. The huge media interest will guarantee worldwide broadcast coverage delivering massive international profile for both Glasgow and Scotland.

CHANCE For Glasgow To Get On Its Bike For Historic Hosting Of World’s Biggest Cycling Championships

I’m not even going to waste more of my time digging into this.

You can read more of the fantasy in the linked article. It’s pretty much a self-explaining fiasco.

What I will say is that it’s a scandal that I would NOT mock dopey MP Paul Sweeney if he questioned it with the same vigour he did after hearing ‘tale telling’ about the plants in the People’s Palace Winter Garden.

But, I doubt we’ll hear as much as a squeak.

That this famous and long established Winter Garden should be languishing in closure for the lack of £7.5 million while there is a farcical demand for £15 million to be poured into a transient event that lasts for a few days is little short of shameful.

And gets even worse when we reflect on the dead shell that was Tollcross Winter Garden, closed after some 2011 storm damage, and could not be spared a penny when the millions were being squandered on the Commonwealth Games, and in particular the swimming pool in the sports centre only a few metres from that glasshouse.

As they say…

Somebody need to GET A GRIP!

Arctic Convoy museum receives funding assistance

I never really appreciated the detail of the Arctic Convoys until I did a little of my own research for a post, then realised I’d missed a lot with regard to this story.

Sadly, while education about this wartime effort is growing, this is only happening as the last few survivors have grown very old, and their numbers are dwindling.

There has always been some sort of memorial to those involved, but not a proper, formal museum.

However, ongoing efforts to create such a facility are moving towards a successful conclusion, and I noticed news of another award which the project will benefit from.

A project dedicated to World War Two’s Russian Arctic Convoys has received £72,820 from the Scottish Land Fund.

The Highlands’ Russian Arctic Convoy Project (RACP) will use the money to buy a former butcher’s shop in Aultbea for a new exhibition centre.

The nearby Loch Ewe was a gathering point for many of the convoys.

The Arctic Convoys transported four million tons of supplies and munitions to Russia between 1941 and 1945.

More than 3,000 Allied seamen lost their lives to the freezing conditions and attacks during the trips to ports in the Arctic Circle after Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941.

Glasgow Science Centre has seen a turnaround

Intriguing to see something come good, and that the Glasgow Science Centre might be melting in what was referred to as a recent heatwave (when the gloop under the metal cladding dribbled out in the summer heat), and that there no longer seems to be any need to reduce its staff to try to reduce costs and keep it open, or even just keep it.

Science centres in Glasgow and Dundee have been awarded more than £4.3m to widen their reach to local communities.

Glasgow Science Centre will receive £2,876,401 to develop its indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces and facilities.

The funding is the largest single investment in Glasgow Science Centre since it opened in 2001.

The money will fund the centre’s Connect project.

Its chief executive Dr Stephen Breslin said: “Connect aims to empower the people of Glasgow to make positive changes in their lives and communities through learning and engagement with science.”

Glasgow and Dundee science centres receive £4.3m funding boost

It’s funny seeing this, as I just made it back to the area for the first time in years, although not to the Science Centre itself.

I was lucky enough to get an invite to a tour around the place just before it opened, which was sort of good and bad all in one.

Good in the sense that such centres can introduce many people to science.

Bad in the sense that it’s all pretty basic, and mostly aimed at kids.

So I’ve never wanted to go back (oh, maybe not entirely true – the planetarium was not completed, and I would probably want a look at it to complete the package). I used to visit the London Planetarium – but not for the planetarium display, but that’s another story.

But I’m glad to see it win some money and stay alive – unlike The Big Idea, still lying derelict in Irvine.

Creation of a unique outdoor learning space and a new exhibition gallery are among planned improvements, together with better facilities and development of the science centre’s community-based learning programme.

Over the next few months, the team at the centre will work with stakeholders to source the match funding required as part of the Inspiring Science Fund and plan the implementation phase of Connect. Visitors will start to see changes from spring 2019 with the addition of the Changing Places Toilet.
