Moving on, for now, from shouting the names of dead children at the First Minister, in TV debates, Scottish Labour Leader, Anas Sewer is alerting us to Glasgow’s ‘One million rats!’
It does seem a lot. A million of anything always does. A million votes for Scottish Labour!!?? OK, too far.
Anyhow Mhairi Hunter’s twitter thread today puts it in context as we see that London has nearly 20 million rats.
You won’t be surprised to hear that my wee numbers-brain fired up at the sight of those millions.
London population 9 million, so every Londoner gets 2.2 rats.
Glasgow population 600 000 and 1.3 million rats, so every Glaswegian only gets 2.16 rats!
