plz keep in mind that the riots in glasgow are not simply no voters…they’re extremists….. it’s the orange order… not no voters in general… plz make that distinction. the orange order is bad. people who voted against independence aren’t. even if u disagree, ur general run of the mill no voter is not out there rioting. keep in mind there were like 2 million no voters… stop lumping them all in w/ the orange order
Seriously guys don’t ignore this like the media is.
The City Centre of Glasgow is over run with protesters, people are setting off flares and attacking each other, police tried to form a human barrier to prevent the rioters from spreading, Unionists were burning the Saltire, there are claims that someone may have been stabbed. And the news sites aren’t reporting this.
This city was my home for half a year and it’s absolutely killing me that people aren’t paying attention to what’s going on right now.
Seriously, I watched major news channels for three hours today and this is getting ignored. Only sky news mentioned this, but called it “good humoured” and “boisterous.”
Please get out of the city centre, or if you have to be there, avoid Buchanan Street and George Square. Be safe!
Don’t watch the link I posted if violence is triggering.
anyone that is in Glasgow right now PLEASE BE SAFE!
riots and fights are breaking out right now in George Square and Buchanan Street
fights are breaking out, reports of someone being stabbed already, people are burning Scottish flags and doing nazi salutes, men are attacking other men and women, and riot police on horses are out and about.
please be very careful tonight, please do not wear any badges showcasing what you have voted for, as it seems that primarily yes voters are being attacked, but that cannot be confirmed exactly right now
please watch out and be safe everyone
Man, people saying that we’re being immature for being upset at the outcome of the Scottish referendum.
A lot of people were really hoping and praying for a taste of freedom and for us to get a chance and not get totally screwed by Westminster like we have so many times before.
Of course a lot of us yes voters are going to be devastated by the outcome.
But there is no reason to call us immature because we are.
If the tables were turned no doubt the majority of the no voters would be feeling what some of us feel.
Now, I respect people’s opinions on why they voted no, but dang it still stings to know that we’re not an independent country and that we still have to deal with the choices of Westminster.
So don’t call us immature because we have feelings about the outcome.
It’s just after 5.30am. This is a sad day. This is a sad day for… I would say my country, but it’s not a country. We’re just a region. A region that gets told what to do by other people. Imagine going on holiday and a tourist or local asks what country you’re from and you tell them Scotland. “Oh,…
