Town Hall protest bid
Nationalist group the Scottish Resistance are planning to protest at Rutherglen Town Hall on St Andrew’s Day.
They want the Union Flag removed from the flagpole and replaced with the Saltire.
In a Facebook event, they say:“Over Rutherglen Town Hall The Brit Imperial Rag flies only a few feet from Traitors Tower where the pact was made to betray Wiliiam Wallace. Lets get this flag removed and replace it with a St Andrews Cross.”
However, they have been widely ridiculed on social media.
One person Tweeted: “they’ll have their work cut out in the royal burgh,” while another said:“have they really got nothing else to worry about. Right now I’m concerned weans not up - ensuing mad rush.”
Do you think the Union Flag or Saltire should fly from Rutherglen Town Hall?
