Massive Rammy on the Banks of the Kelvin!(Warning bad language and violence)

While everyone else was either fishing or watching the Royal Wedding some folk decided to have a riot down in Kelvingrove Park on the banks of the Kelvin – the party was organised on facebook and ended with mounted police charging party goers.

Mounted police moved in to disperse revellers after organisers were told to end the party.

Of course the problem stems from our Grand Leader David Cameron telling folk to go ahead and have a party to celebrate the Royal Wedding – I suppose he was not really thinking about a mixture of cheap booze down next to the River Kelvin.

The PM said : “They have no right to stop you from having fun. I am the Prime Minister and I am telling you if you want to have a street party, you go ahead and have one.”

Nice one Dave!

Police moved in to the park to break up the party

Just look at all those folk – can you imagine trying to get through that lot to get to the river – and lets not even thinking about the noise. The news made mention that people were using the Kelvin as a toilet – just like the Victorians eh?

Police vans have had their windows smashed

Bloody awful – it certainly does not exactly make me proud to be a Weegie. People throwing glass bottles at the police, other folk standing around watching them do it? These are guys that are paid to do a job – they are paid to uphold the law not to take abuse off of faceless drunks – that is how folk are seriously injured.

Incidentally thinking of analogies and booze – if you are still pondering about the upcoming referendum on the Alternative Vote here is a nice way of looking at it:

As usual the Scotsman get it totally wrong.

Some footage before it all went wrong

Take a look at this mess and wonder where the majority of the shite has went? And by shite I mean litter – considering most council workers get the long weekend with a skeleton crew I wonder if it will be cleaned up anytime soon – if it is those guys deserve a bonus.

Were you at the Kelvin today? Catch any fish?
