IRA supporters disrupt Armed Forces Day Parade in Glasgow

IRA Supporters tried to disrupt the Armed Forces Day parade in Glasgow.

Their efforts partly succeeded with the assistance of the police, who allowed them within shouting distance of George Sq, apparently in the interests of freedom of speech!

Since when has waving proscribed flags and inciting religious hatred been freedom speech? They should have been arrested and charged with breach of the peace, at the very least.

Several hundred members of the public heard their chants and set off across the square, shouting "scum", etc. They were prevented from reaching the IRA Supporters by the police, who then formed a human (?) barrier across the street to block it off. The public followed up with a couple fo choruses of Rule Britannia!

The senior officer, an Inspector, later took a severe "in his face" ear bashing from several members of the public who objected to the police allowing the IRA Supporters so close to the Square.

Strathclyde Police in general and the operational commander in particular, hang your heads in shame.

In the Bliar/Brown Britain the politicised police are programmed to favour the minorities, especially if there is a tinge of terrorism about them.

Disgusting and disgraceful, but sadly only to be expected.

I was on the other side of the square from where the protestors were can't really say much about them though the rule britannia singing was right where I was. Didn't mind the singing that much but it did sound too much like some of the crowd thought they were at a ****ing football match instead of honouring our military.

I was in George Sq today. I had heard that they planned something, the first I knew anything was happening was when everyone took to their heels running. Then I heard Rule Britannia and the shouts of scum. According to the hubby and son there were a few on the ground being kissed by boots/shoes etc.
We were standing opposite the City Chambers on Frederick St and the junction of George St and at the start there were no police on George St until it all kicked off.
As you say it was known that this was planned and the Police should have stopped them getting anywhere near George Sq.

Yeah the police did nothing but merely react to what was going on. In fact they disrupted the event more than the protestors in some ways - that fecking helicopter droned out the speeches.

P1ss poor policing again, no leadership, no direction and no responsibility.

Where was the order? ' Clear the street'.

As a Scot, this disgusts me.

Glasgow gladly united at the condemation of certain jeep driving doctors who found it difficult to find parking at glasgow airport.
And then these cnuts raise there ugly heads unopposed.

I feel embarrassed for my country.
sorry folks.

No need to be embarrased Jock. Glasgow and the West Coast has always had these PIRA supporting muthafukas amongst them,that's just the way it is in that neck of the woods. Many a squaddie has had a good kicking or even been murdered just for being a "Brit".
There's a few over here in Edinburgh,but not on the same scale - thank f uck.
The James Connoly march tends to bring them out of the wood work though. A lot of the Hibs supporters think he was a hero,but as I always say - He was shot by a British Army Firing squad and he hasn't had a pardon,that makes him officially a traitor - just like the 7/7 c unts!

pack of knuts ... either the scum or the polis.

police in glasgow hardly leave the safety of their stations ... unless its to blat around in their cars. A new chief constable came in with an attitude of 'encouraging' foot patrols to reassure the little people - lasted a week then it was back to hiding in the station.

as for the scum ... where is the mob of tooled up, p!ssed rangers fans when you need them?

Then who is I see, walking around during the day and night then. With all the freedom of speech, groveling up to every wannabe group Strathy's finest can always rely on Jan Hamilton to secure Maryhill now. In saying that the last time George Square had a bit of scuffle Tanks were stationed at the cattle market.
