Traquair's take:
Excellent the ugly faces of British Nationalism rear their ugly heads with the most ardent defenders being the bigoted Orange Order and the BNP. They appear to be so brain dead they don't appear to realize that having them as opposition to Scottish independence only helps Scottish nationalism. In the case of the Orange Order it is of course rather ironic that their Northern Ireland power base is not even British they are just UKish which ends up with the farcical situation of a non-British organization being one of the biggest defenders of this indefensible Union. I wonder where they are going to get the funding for their marches of intimidation now that Glasgow City and the police are refusing to fund their bigoted & farcical stomping around town all in Orange.

I can hardly imagine a better dream team for the SNP than the bigoted and sectarian Orangemen with the "disillusioned" and dwindling 'Scottish' Labour membership". If this is the best defenders of the Union independence is going to come even sooner than expected.

After all, this is the same shower of clowns who threatened armed rebellion a few years ago if Scotland gained its Independence:

Even though Labour don't think Ulster is British:

Not that blatant hypocrisy from the British Unionist Labour Party should surprise any Scot.

From Traquair again:
"THE Orange Order has vowed to mobilise its 50,000 members in Scotland to oppose the SNP at the next general election and shore up the vote to retain the Union."

Why wait until then, I think 'Scottish' Labour and their new Orange friends should arrange a series of marches all over Glasgow North East to promote the 'benefits' of the Union :)
