"Scott Taylor, chief executive of the Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, believes each sailor is likely to spend at least £125 every day he’s in the city and is confident it will be a memorable time for the “international mariners.â€"

Which part of Glasgow are they in!! You only spend that much money if you loose your mates and get ripped of £50 to get a taxi back to Faslane after throwing up in the back as well.

If the Yanks take extra shore-leave, I imagine London will be busy.

Ahhh fair enough. Aye, you never do. You think you're on the home run, sitting there nicely. Then wham, out it comes with the taxi driver hurling some explicits at you :lol:

Wonder how many yanks will come out with the "Scottish American and proud" tshirts on. Bet they will need a brief on the local language as well!
