We Don't Back The Bid

It's Time To Stand Up
There has been much ado about the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow for a while now.

Millions of pounds have been spent to 'campaign' for Glasgow to be granted the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Trains throughout Scotland have been painted. It seems like every library, bus, municipal office and sports facility in Glasgow almost has been given the "Glasgow bid" ensign, and TV and radio airtime, coupled with constant articles in the printed press has been given over to 'the bid.'

It's everywhere. You can't escape it - but did anyone ever ask you if you wanted it?

The petition below is for all those who really didn't, for all those who feel the 'Games are an intrusion and a cover for enacting social policies that we don't want and certainly don't need. If that sounds like you, add your name!

It's time amidst all the glossy nonsense that we stand up and be counted. We don't back the bid!

I got a threatening letter from the council a couple of weeks back regarding council tax. They threatened to take me to court at the same time as asking me to back the bid! smile Fannies.

Big Eck and pals want every school child in the country to watch the announcement of the vote on whether we get the games or not. Huzzah!
