Petition to stop demolition of Glasgow hits 30

A PETITION to stop Glasgow being razed to the ground has reached 30 signatures and is hoping to hit 50 by the weekend.

The Scottish city is scheduled to be demolished next month to make way for a large, empty space. Authorities had assumed the plan would go ahead unopposed.

But Carolyn Ryan, a sales manager from Plymouth,  launched an online petition demanding a reprieve for the city she visited 12 years ago and quite liked.

Ryan said: “I thought I’d maybe get five or 10 people to sign up, mostly friends and relatives. I was stunned when it reached 20 after just six days.

“When it reached 30 I knew it had really gone ‘viral’. Maybe Billy Connolly or Lulu might pick up on it and it could rocket to 70.”

She added: “I realise we’ve no hope of stopping the demolition, but it’s important to know that a few dozen people are vaguely annoyed.”
