Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff reporter

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.”
