The friendly and generous parking enforcement officers are what took Edinburgh to the top of the list!

Jealousy is a terrible thing, I bet you are really from Glasgow! Proud to be living in Edinburgh and agree totally with Troubleonline

Why are Edinburgh bus drivers so grumpy and Glasgow ones so jokey?

I am not jealous and I do not come from Glasgow. In fact I am English. I was merely drawing attention to another article of a similar nature which I read in yesterday's Daily Mail. For some reason I cannot access the article on the website, so just put up the link to the one for the Express. These things come and go.

On the subject of bus drivers; the grumpiest one I've ever known was someone who regularly drove the 201 to Aberdeen. He's now employed elsewhere, which make the journey to the Granite City much more pleasurable.

Buddy - because they have to put up with shocking traffic systems and constant roadworks - my only complaint about Edinburgh - council need to sort it out but seem to prefer to make things worse to annoy everyone!!

Is there anyone old enough to remember the last time Edinburgh Council relaid a road - as opposed to patching it. I'm certain it's part of their Evil Plan to force motorists out of Edinburgh totally

I've never been to Glasglow, but I have been to Edinburgh. Nice city to look at, but cold, and wet and zzzzzzzz.........

I don't care who made that list, I can think of 100 other places that are better to live in than Scotland.

Doesn't Scotland have the highest sucide rate?

Well done edinburgh and I think rightly deserved, knew Liverpool wouldn't even reach the final 20. Thought we could be in the top 10 for the worst though.
