No problem, just trying to spread the word. In my opinion no matter what side you were for the vote, if you have any Yes/No badges or stickers etc, I suggest you remove them from public site and pass this along to any you are worried for. It's not safe.
Yeah, my gran removed the ‘No’ poster a few days ago after the guy in the flat opposite got a brick through his front window. It probably doesn’t help that the split was almost 50/50…

Uh sorry I know this is a rp blog but I can't help my curiosity-- What the heckly doo is going on in Scotland?? It looks kinda like the whole Ferguson thing, and my family keeps talking about it. I don't exactly understand??
in the simplest way I can describe; there are racist unionists (who may or may not be Scottish I’m not sure) have taken to the streets in Glasgow to “celebrate” the victory over the No vote winning in for an independent Scotland.
we were all sort of expecting riots, but it’s surprising how it’s the No campaigners who have decided to be the sore winners. So far I haven’t heard of any Yes campaigners being violent, in fact, they are the ones being bullied here. (Of course however, not all the No campaigners are like this)
I’m really sorry for spamming you guys, but I’m so pissed off because I’ve seen nothing on any mainstream media. feel free to unfollow, or use #indyref or #politics to blacklist.
I want to add some info for everyone out there! Luckily so far, it’s mostly isolated incidents (though certain areas should definitely be avoided, I’ve heard the No campaigners have become violent in St. George’s Square). A man got arrested a few days ago for assaulting a man he thought was going to vote ‘No’.
There’s actually quite a bit on tv right now (I suppose it depends on the channels though), but you can’t really tell how fair everyone’s being represented. :/
Despite being a Yes voter myself, I can still agree that the Yes voters over the duration of the referendum campain have been far more vocal and slightly rowdy/rebelious than any of the silent No voters. Stickers, graffiti and similar things used to promote voting Yes.
I called it from day one that there would be riots and if I’m completely honest I’d have expected it to be the Yes voters doing the rioting, but apparently it’s the No voters.
They are attacking Yes voters in the streets, firing flare guns at the police and even forming small rioting mobs/groups - all of which targeting us Yes voters. All this even thought they won the vote? I don’t quite understand that logic. Is this the voting side you think deserves to win the referendum?
Does anyone have any info on the riots? I’ve got posts all over my dash, but we all know tumblr’s far from reputable, and my family all live up there! :(
Holy shit, the stuff in Scotland’s getting scary, I just saw the riots on the BBC! :(
My gran said she had to take the ‘No’ sign out her flat because her neighbor got a brick in through the window yesterday.
