Parade Protest March banned

The BBC are reporting that police have cancelled the march through the village of Auchterarder – as close as they could get to the G8 Summit at Gleneagles – after overnight trouble in central Scotland. A Tayside Police Spokeswoman is quoted in the report “It is not going ahead on the grounds of public safety and because of the disruption to the road network in the area and the level of criminal activity taking place.”.. hmmm.. Is the Parades Commission listening? Update It’s on again.. sheesh.. [thanks Brendan]

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
