My mother was one of those protesters, she was there to protest about the closure of my 32 yr. old sister’s day centre, my sister has downs syndrome. Her day centre is getting bulldozed to make way for a bus park for the common wealth games.
The carers and users of the day centre where promised a like for like new build as part of the commonwealth legacy, now there being told there shall be no centre and as of yet have nowhere for the users of the centre to go. Their idea of putting my sister and the rest of the users into community centres is unacceptable, they will not have anywhere that is specifically for them, and in the summer holidays when most community centres run play schemes, then there will be nowhere for these adults to go to get out of the way of the children. This doesn't bode well for the children or the day centre users.
So this Mr Gray ran away from carers who are worried not only for the wellbeing of the people they care for, but also their own wellbeing; my mother has been a full time mother for 42 yrs. now. The first ten to me and my other sister and the last 32 as a full time carer and mother to my youngest sister.
But we're ok Mr Gray has lived through worse!!!

"""""""not a bloody coward!!""""""

Oh come now, he did stroll across the killing fields and... who cares?

Sounds ridiculous comparing genocide to a couple of tax cuts protestors.

If it looks like a duck... quack quack.

I think this is appropriate
Visage Paroles - Fade To Grey[/b][/u]

Devenions gris
Devenions gris

One man on a lonely platform
One case sitting by his side
Two eyes staring cold and silent
Show fear as he turns to hide

Aaah, we fade to grey (fade to grey)
Aaah, we fade to grey (fade to grey)

Un homme dans une gare isolée
Une valise a ses cotés
Des yeux fixes et froids
Montre de la peur lorsqu'il
Se tourne pour se cacher

Aaah, we fade to grey (fade to grey)
Aaah, we fade to grey (fade to grey)

Sent la pluie comme un été Anglais
Entends les notes d'une chanson lointaine
Sortant de derriere d'un poster
Espérant que la vie ne fut aussi longue

Aaah, we fade to grey (fade to grey)
Aaah, we fade to grey (fade to grey)

Feel the rain like an English summer
Hear the notes from a distant song
Stepping out from a back shop poster
Wishing life wouldn't be so long

Devenir gris

The poll says NO CHANGE but as far as I remember the SNP and Labour were about neck and neck on 37%, not 40%.

Craig: Does he? When? It looks like he's forced to talk to them a bit once they've cornered him in the shop, but not before.

Anyway, amusing though all this is, it'd be a bit silly if the election turned on it, surely?

This version is so much more fun....

In fairness to IG, he does try to chat to some of them but is quickly moved on.

Iain Gray and the infamous Subway gate was a PR disaster for him and his party. On policy Gray tried to match Salmond, on personality..need I say more?

When Gray ran away from a few lighthearted protesters, Salmond held a meeting with them. The country needs strong leadership, not a bloody coward!!
