Thread Name: BS: The Coronation
Subject: RE: BS: The Coronation
Little interest here in Scotland as far as I can gather. They put up a huge screen in Princes St Gardens in front of the Ross Bandstand for people to watch it there: photos show a wee smattering of audience, probably mainly tourists. Haven’t heard of any street parties at all, and that’s not because I have no mates! I have plenty, but many of them are of the Republican persuasion.
In the meantime, 2 other events in Edinburgh attracted more followers: the “Not my King” protesters up on Carlton Hill, and the annual May Day March down the Royal Mile, the date of which would have been decided long before the Coronation date.
And over in Glasgow, a big Independence March was well supported.
