The events recorded on Friday evening in Glasgow show just who are the real and vile "nationalists"
The press and media cover since then, with the exception of our beloved BBC, always keeping in mind that no section of the media were in favour of a yes vote, have come out strongly with the facts that a well organized gang of thugs numbering up to 2000 with prominent union and other insignia proclaiming them to be of the NO persuation proceded to terrorised and intimidate a small[ in relation to their numbers] number of mainly young people who had been in the square for some time having a peaceful singaround. This gives us a glimpse of the damage to our national reputation by organisations whose proclaimed loyalties are shared by only a small part of our population. Indeed I understand that the supporters of Glasgow Rangers Football Club are known colloqually as "huns" this showing the average Scotsmans contempt for them.

My journalist friend informs me that the TV company Al Jazeera in showing these images of union jack wrapped thugs to the world implied that the imperial/colonial mindset still prevails in this country.

Sneer as much as you like but a prayer to whatever gods you believe in would not go amiss as the ticking timebomb, especially in the Southern part of this Island, may at any time be ignited.
