Answers

Mr .Gleaves is the manager who gives Brian a job on the parks service, and who only suspends him with pay after learning he was under the influence of drugs while on the job. After Brian goes to London and then returns to Edinburgh, Mr. Gleaves rehires him. A hopeful, kind liberal who either cannot see or will not look at hard truths, Mr. Gleaves is liked by Brian, yet with a hint of contempt in his good will toward the manager.
