Battle of George Square

Recommended Posts

Funnily enough my gran got the book Glasgow 1919 earlier this month on my recommendation, she didn't even know about it, which was weird for me as she reads history all the time.

In fact Looking up to correct the name i see it was Kenny Mackaskill who wrot eit.

Didn't see a Steve Earle song?

That's bizarre. The great American singer song writer has turned into a great Scots singer songwriter. All very perplexing.

Interesting, I wasn't aware of the racial component. Cheers for posting that. 

It seems some things never change... 

"2019, racial hostility continues to be closely tied to employment and continues to be used as a divisive tool. Ninety years after Shinwell’s speech we had a repeat of the sentiment, ‘British jobs for British workers’, as workers engaged in wildcat strikes in the construction industry."
