  1. From what I’ve seen and read, just like Glasgow, Dumfries, Bannockburn this was an amazing event. Hell they even had their very own version of the maukit jaikit crowd along to keep the shoppers entertained whilst awaiting the marchers. 😂

      1. “Minder” or “carer”?

        What an amazing turnout! I hope these rallies can continue after Edinburgh and, as well as covering the rest of the cities, can visit places that tend to be overlooked like Kelso or Jedburgh, Glenrothes or Kirkcaldy, Oban, Ayr or Fort William.

  2. I was surprised at the turnout , actually I have been surprised by all the turnouts . But like last time its winning over the silent ones , the ones who get their information from the mainstream media , that will count . Yes make ourselves seen and heard , show people there is an appetite for not just another referendum but independence . The over riding thing we must do is convince those who voted no last time with a heavy heart and convince the people of the EU who live here to vote Yes and then we might swing it . We know the union has nothing left , we know those who support the union have no arguments for it , but a large number of people in Scotland have no interest in their own country and how its run , they are the danger , especially if they vote , like last time .

    1. We should remember that they will use every trick in the book to keep us.

      The humiliation of losing us at the same time as their influence drops, no longer being a member of the EU, would be too much to bear.

      They will use every trick in the book and their friends in the BBC and the press will help them.


        1. Yes, agreed.

          The time for top hats and curtseys is kinda over.

          I wish I could take people to Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Ireland, Finland, and show them how free people live in small northern countries that don’t want to run the world.

  3. Lest we forget Tris we now have another date to add to the diary now all thanks to the BBC!

    August 11th

    13:00 – 15:00

    Pacific Quay

    You might guess this event has been organised all thanks to the pathetic behaviour of the BBC over You Tube channels of Wings over Scotland and Peter Curran.
