Thread Name: BS: scottish independence
Subject: RE: BS: scottish independence
up in glasgow for the vote and have been around george square for the noisy , entirely peaceful and enjoyable independence party. until last night when some unionist/ british national party turned up looking for a fight -their 'victory' apparently not enough without a bit of violence. can i say this was not the usual sectarian violence involving 2 glasgow football teams. there were no irish tricolours/ celtic shirts or any reference to the old battles in what was an entirely scottish and inclusive campaign on the yes side. any trouble was caused by far right wing, unionist and violent bigots - while they are overwhelmingly rangers supporters (apparently aided by an EDL contingent up for a scrap) this shouldn't be used to slur the majority of good people who support this team. it's a bit lazy to bring football into again - not quite as straightforward as that and much more nasty.
