I live in Scotland.
I voted Yes in the referendum.
I was massively disappointed with the result when it came through on Friday morning but happy to now work with what we have been giving to make sure that things change in the UK to make it better for everybody. I was incredibly proud of how many people in this country became involved in making a decision about Scotland’s future. We had more people turning up to vote than we have had for years. It has been an time of incredible positive political activity for our country. So many people from so many different walks of life have been involved and that has been amazing.
However, the things that have been happening in Glasgow today make me sick to my stomach. I went from my being so proud to hugely ashamed of this city. The violence and attitude from a small, but loud group have embarrassed everyone on both sides of the argument. There is never any excuse for behaviour like we’ve seen today and i’m so upset by it.
