Robert Baird was until recently the health and safety boss for a major hospital building project. He worked enforcing safety rules at the New South Glasgow Hospital site. But Mr Baird didn’t have much concern for the safety of others when he was caught in Troon smuggling explosives and bomb making equipment to the UVF in 2002. He was then sentenced to eleven years in jail. Mr Baird was really unpopular with his fellow workers before his convictions for terrorism were known to them. He had a reputation for being a bit of a jobsworth. Always waving yellow cards at people.He has now been forced to resign after the Daily Mirror newspaper starting asking questions about him.
