Scotland can be a crazy place at times, but now it’s bordering on bizarre !
On a day when an STV journalist managed to shoehorn a question about Celtic and Irish Republicanism, (this during a press conference about a new kit sponsor) I was drawn via Twitter to an article in the Scotsman.
Police Scotland have released a list of ‘words’ banned on their facebook page. Fair enough, no one wants to see profanity written all over a facebook page, however. On inspection of the article, I was left dumbfounded by how touchy Police Scotland have become.
One of the most bizarre parts was this wee gem !
Now correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think Hun, Fenian and definately Green or Brigade are in any way sectarian. They can become sectarian if certain profanities are added, but on their own they are not. I think the article says more about how Police Scotland view the world rather than anything else.
I wouldn’t normally link to a SMSM site but I believe I have to share the fun of reading this article. http://www.scotsman.com/news/odd/police-scotland-bans-pigs-from-facebook-page-1-3710080
