I know, myths abound in the teaching of history and the Battle of George Square is full of them, but remember, there were six tanks parked in the Gallowgate cattle market in a Scottish city, with no armed revolutionary groups threatening armed insurrection. They were there with some plan in mind.
So, by all means correct the material, but while you’re at it how about correcting the key omissions from the story of Scotland in the British Empire?
Just for starters, how about Ireland and India? Genocidal policies on the supply of food and murderous suppression using Scots troops, of popular and at first peaceful protest.
There’s more, much more to say about the Empire. Where is it in the curriculum?
