Hundreds, if not thousands, of anti-separatist demonstrators have been driving their Union Jack bedecked cars around the streets of Glasgow all morning in a clear signal that the Gnats desire to see the break up of the United Kingdom is very much a minority view. The protesters have even adopted a uniform of royal blue shirt with Carling lager advertising, jeans, trainers and excessive numbers of tattoos. The odd Saltire has also been seen and even a scattering of red hand of Ulster flags have been spotted.
On the other hand Glasgow Rangers are playing in the final of the UEFA cup in Manchester on Wednesday evening and the "Hun run" to that city appears to have started.
As someone who normally has a plague on both your houses attitude to both of the "Old Firm" I do make exceptions for any Scottish team playing in European competition and take this opportunity of publicly stating that I hope that Rangers beat Zenit St Petersburg in Wednesday night's final.
