In fact things are so bad in Glasgow City Council that they are set to cut funding for 100 police officers who patrol Glasgow's streets.
What's that I hear you say?
You didn't know that Glasgow City Council have police on their payroll (and therefore in their pocket)?
You do now.
And I can just see the little wheels in your brain whizzing round now that you've learned this little gem of info.
Ah yes, it now explains a lot of things that have gone on in the past between the police and Glasgow City Council councillors that didn't quite make sense at the time - but it does now, doesn't it?
As I keep telling you, join the dots dear reader, join the dots.
