Glaswegian translators required at £140/day, is it for David Cameron’s trip to the Glasgow North East By-election?

A tranlation company is looking for people who can translate Glaswegian for their customers!

In this time of economic austerity perhaps those seeking gainful employment should look at The Herald for a new job at £140/day.

According to an advert in The Herald companies are looking for fluent speakers of Glaswegian to translate for them. If you want to apply there are apparently lots of applicants already, of which many have applied in Glaswegian!

Am I the only person who finds this a little odd? But then it made me wonder if it had anything to do with the imminent Glasgow North East by-election, which will replace Michael Martin next month. 

Could it be anything to do with David Cameron, and the rest of the Tory shadow cabinet, needing to come North of the border, does he need translation services when he knocks on doors in Springburn?

I attach the link from the BBC where I found this story. There’s also a very helpful list of words that it might be useful to know if you plan to apply.

David Cameron would do well to learn a few!

It even made it on to the Today programme – http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_8308000/8308448.stm
