Wait I'm really confused why exactly is going on in Scotland?
hey, so on the 18th of September there was a referendum on whether or not Scotland should be independent from the United Kingdom that it has been a part of for over 300 years and on Friday morning it was announced that 55% of Scotland had voted to remain part of the UK. A peaceful protest of yes voters were gathering in St George’s Square in Glasgow when they were attacked physically and verbally by a radical group of no voters who were burning Scottish flags and doing Nazi salutes. The police, as far as I know, have been trying their hardest to keep everyone safe but its the fact there’s been little to no mention of this incident from the BBC as they are hoping if they ignore the problem for long enough that it will go away.
It’s not just a case of yes against no at this stage, the radicals are targeting people because of their, race, religion and sexual orientation and the only way people are hearing about this is through social media.
Tensions are running high now as the people of Scotland are feeling like they have been lied to - if there was a no vote, they were promised that they would still be given more devolved powers so they would have more control over Scotland but already there have been politicians that have backed out of their promise. There’s also claims of the vote being rigged but i’m not 100% certain although i have heard that some polling stations are being investigated.
Scotland is angry, just because there was a no vote doesn’t mean that the fight is over. A lot of people feel cheated out of independence from politicians that fed us lies before bailing on us and are now claiming ignorance. Didn’t we have a reform about 200 years ago to get rid of the exact laissez-faire attitude that Westminister seems to have adopted?
So yeah, Scotland’s not a very nice place to be right now, people are angry and it’s not safe to go into our streets and possibly the media blackout is the most frightening thing. How long can you ignore the screams of terror from children that are being attacked by bigoted, racist, sectarianistic, homophobic douchebags?
Just try to spread things about what is happening across the country to try and keep people safe because if it wasn’t for social media, no one would have a damned clue about what was going on in Soctland.
