In his piece today on the Glasgow council ‘research’, David Leask talks of Glasgow Square seeing: ‘stand-offs between rival hooligans taking sides on Black Lives Matters.’
Does he mean the openly racist, ‘loyalists’, who ran through the square attacking people and the entirely peaceful BLM protesters?
I don’t suppose he agrees with SNP MP Chris Stephens who said in the Commons:
Let me be quite clear that I condemn the racism of the far right and I celebrate those who wish to protest about the unfair conditions which asylum seekers are faced with in Glasgow. I have no doubt further news will develop as this debate goes on, but I want to make it quite clear that the actions of the far right… this demonstration tonight is nothing to do with statues, but was to address the issue of conditions in this city. There is no place for far-right thuggery anywhere in the United Kingdom and people are entitled to peacefully protest if they think that the Government are not making the correct decision.
Where was Leask on September 19th, 2014? Was he writing about the just ‘rival groups’ in George Square? The entirely peaceful Yes campaigners and this lot?
