Glasgow Central (UK Parliament Constituency) - Constituency Profile

Constituency Profile

The constituency takes in Glasgow city centre, including Kelvingrove Art Gallery, the main rail stations, Glasgow Cathedral and the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. All three of Glasgow's universities are here as well, making it supposedly the most educated constituency in Scotland. The large student population is an important factor in elections. The Merchant City is also here, yuppie housing built out of the disused cotton and tobacco warehouses. This area is a symbol of the rebirth of the city, and Glasgow Central is undoubtedly the most affluent constituency in Glasgow, although it also includes more deprived areas, such as Calton.

Famous quotes containing the words profile and/or constituency:

    Nature centres into balls,
    And her proud ephemerals,
    Fast to surface and outside,
    Scan the profile of the sphere;
    Knew they what that signified,
    A new genesis were here.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Social Security is a government program with a constituency made up of the old, the near old and those who hope or fear to grow old. After 215 years of trying, we have finally discovered a special interest that includes 100 percent of the population. Now we can vote ourselves rich.
