From Mr Barry Sheppard

Sir: "Glasgow - It's Miles Better" (Alix Sharkey, 1 January) isn't much of a slogan when printed and read like that, I agree.

Try saying it aloud, however, while mentally moving the apostrophe, and you will hear "Glasgow - its Mile's Better". A pleasingly cheeky and, I am sure, not accidental snook cocked at Edinburgh and its Royal Mile.

Yours faithfully,

Barry Sheppard
