The prestigious Frommer's guide, published worldwide and regarded as the traveller's bible, put the Scottish city in its top 10 list of "interesting, affordable destinations".........'

Based on "interesting, affordable destinations".

Undoubtedly so. So is Baghdad.

And for a bloody good reason. It';s absolutely typical that some fool has gone and told everyone.

Frommer's isn't that good - in fact I, as a regular traveller, have never been inclined to use it. If you're after a world leader, you really must concentrate on Lonely Planet and then Rough Guides.

Anyway, needless to say you omitted to say that Glasgow is in the top 10 places for chavs to holiday.

Well i guess now I've had the Yellow Fever, Typhoid and Dpitheria Injections and have the Malaria tablets I might be able to see some of the more poorer parts of the place, where native Glaswegians can still be seen living traditional, simple lives
