If you remove all the smack heads, job dodgers and general benefit abusers, get your kids educated (at school and in the home) maybe just maybe the rest of Glenrothes can start to enjoy one of the "greenest" towns around

I really can't understand how people can call Glenrothes dismal, I have lived in the town since birth (1960) and have seen many changes, ok, there are some "grey" areas but, all towns and cities have their own "blot". I have to say that the inhabitants themselves cause a multitude of problems ie. Litter, mutual respect, lack of self education to name but a few. This IS a good town with an abundance of plants, trees, park areas and general "greenery", all you have to do is get out and have a good look around, you know the old saying "use it but dont abuse it", well, if we all tried a little harder then Glenrothes would improve ten fold.

I dont think "most" scottish people hate the english, I would say the "majority" get on with their lives, work, pay their mortgages, look after house and family then, look forward to a wee holiday now and again. I have met good and bad north and south of the border, holidays in the lake district and bedfordshire and met some charming people yet, have met some pretty negative attitudes in scotland. PS. Can we try to keep the comments a bit more "adult" please

Nothing wrong at all with Glenrothes,,you speak true,but Edinburgh is beautiful too,anyway everyone should stick together and be proud of their towns and all be responsible for what goes on in them,getting together to challenge the antisocial behaviour,vandalism and the likes and making all our towns pleasant places to live with proud inhabitants!
