The news that Glasgow's Boyd Tunnock has become Sir Boyd Tunnock prompted me to revisit these posts from the blog site archive.
I don't know what made me laugh more - reading the posts about Glasgow City Council 'bursting with pride' at acquiring a new Rolls Royce or the sight of a grown man desperate to become a Knight of the Realm.
Glasgow - Equal Pay Update (08/06/18)
I have just shared my latest post about Glasgow's new Rolls Royce with all 85 city councillors - along with the following message.
Glasgow and Equal Pay
I enclose the latest equal pay update from my blog site and hope the majority of Glasgow councillors will agree that the best thing to do with the City's new Rolls Royce is to sell the vehicle and its valuable personalised number plate - and put the money aside to assist the Council to meet its obligations over equal pay.
The same message has been sent via Twitter to all Glasgow constituency MSPs and MPs and if you ask me, the whole thing has been handled appallingly from start to finish.
Glasgow's Still Rolling Along! (2)
The Herald finally caught up with my not so subtle hints about the identity of the mystery, top-secret donor who gifted Glasgow City Council its 'new' Rolls Royce.
If you ask me, the sooner the car and its fancy number plate are sold the better and the money put aside to help Scotland's largest council meet its obligations over equal pay.
And surely after this ridiculous debacle it is time for the Council's chief executive, Annemarie O'Donnell, to consider her position.
Mystery £250,000 Rolls-Royce Tory donor revealed as Boyd Tunnock
Glasgow's Still Rolling Along! (08/06/18)
I'd be really 'T'd off' if I were Annemarie O'Donnell because the story about Glasgow City Council's new Rolls Royce keeps 'snowballing' and gathering steam.
Not only does the 'Roller' appear to have had an expensive new paint job, no one seems to know who paid for the vehicle's makeover from 'silver surfer' to ebony black.
To make matters worse, the Council's argument for keeping the name of the mysterious donor top-secret appears to be 'wafer thin' given the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and the City Council's total commitment to openness and transparency in its decision-making processes.
The excitement is becoming too much to bear and wouldn't it just 'take the biscuit' if a senior council official had to resign over the cack-handed handling of the affair?
Glasgow's Silver Surfer (08/06/18)
An enterprising reader sent me this screen shot of what appears to be Glasgow City Councl's 'new' Rolls Royce - except that the colour of the luxury vehicle is Silver instead of jet Black, as shown in the photo below.
Now I'm told this is because the 'Roller' has been re-sprayed and that the cost of a paint job on such a luxury vehicle would be around £10,000.
So the question is who paid for the paint job - the mysterious, anonymous donor or Glasgow City Council?
I think we should be told.
