Do you think it would be ok to tile over this wall after the removal of the original tiles?

Its cheaper to skim it than throw loads of adhesive at it , quicker to tile if can gauge

The other side is worse the above wall is papered as I believe the wall isn't good enough for painting

Should be able to knock those adhesive blobs off from the previous dot and dab tiling (considered of the worst type of tiling going). Then apply adhesive using a trowel next time and you wont get those off so easy.

What's your end aim here?
