“Demonstraters supporting the Loyalist Union flag dispute in Northern Ireland are turning their attention to Scotland’s independence referendum, with a protest planned against senior SNP figures next week. The protesters are planning to picket Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s constituency office on Glasgow’s south side a week on Saturday.
One demonstrator said the protest at Ms Sturgeon’s office was a “No to independence and to protect the Union”.”
The protests in question took place today, with a number of Wings Over Scotland’s intrepid citizen journalists (whose names we’re withholding for their own safety) braving the ever-present threat of British-nationalist violence to record the events for posterity.
It’s very easy to mock, of course. So we are. But we’re sure that the “Better Together (Or Else We’ll Set Fire To You)” campaign, having ridiculed the thousands who turned up for an unofficial pro-independence rally last September, will be delighted with the attendance at this “no to independence” counterpart. Seven votes in the bag!
