GLASGOW’S propensity for twinning with other cities looks to be heading along the lines of a multiple birth, after it emerged that the city may be twinned with Marseilles in France or Karachi in Pakistan.A socialist twin or an Islamic one? Let's look at the track record:
The city is already twinned with Havana, Cuba and Nuremberg, Germany, Dalian in China, and Rostov-on-Don in Russia.All places with a socialist present or past. Maybe it's time for Karachi. On the other hand, if Glasgow twins with Marseille it can get both socialism and Islam in one go.
Here's a radical suggestion: why not twin with Silicon Valley or, if something a bit more third world is required, Bangalore? All those Labour politicians are always going on about entrepreneurship and all that stuff. Do they really mean it?
