I’d like to take a moment to bring to people’s attention what is happening in Scotland right now, more specifically Glasgow. I’m not sure many of you even realise that yesterday we had the chance to vote to be an independent country, and overall, the run up to voting day was fantastic! There was such passion and positivity from both Yes and No camps, but that is now a thing of the past as since the votes have been counted and a NO vote has won 55% to 45% YES. George square has been the hub for many YES gatherings over the past few weeks, and I live in Glasgow and I’ve walked through them, and it’s been a really great atmosphere, but these pictures show what replaces that today. Within 48 hours it has gone from a scene of positivity, to complete anarchy, and the BBC has covered virtually none of it! I ask that you please be aware of the discord going on in Glasgow and Scotland right now, and if you’re in Glasgow please stay at home and be safe, this is not how it should have ended.
This is the threat. British nationalism. Not Scottish nationalism. In the city that voted Yes. Back to this kind of Glasgow. Nazi salutes and chants about the famine.
Stabbing of a Yes voter, scuffles with the police, nazi salutes, fascism, bigotry, hatred, intolerance, Saltire burning and young women being terrorised on the street. To think Wednesday night the same square was full of families, hope and laughter. These are the brave guardians of our United Kingdom! Better together eh? Not with you lot.
