I have to wonder the intelligence of the so-called Terrorists, trying to set Glasgow airport on fire. After all,
- Scotland is a pretty damp country
- The method they chose was comical, to say the least.
- Glaswegians are not known to be passive at the best of times.
On the last point, this eMail has been floating around:
|"Oh my God! There was a man on fire, he was running about, i just ran for my life. I thought i was gonna die, he got so close to me"||"C*nt wis running aboot on fire, so a ran up n gave him a good boot, then decked him"|

AND finally, two quotes from an eye-witness.........John Smeaton (these are real)
John just surpassed himself on the National ITV news. The interviewer asked
"What message do you have for the bombers?"
John replied………. "This is unacceptable, this is Glasgow .... if they want tae come tae glasgow, then we'll just set about them"
John also did an interview on CNN and they asked how he restrained the guy and he said ….
"Me and other folk were just tryin tae get the boot in and some other guy banjoed him" !
