The spokesman for the Shettleston Historical Society is quoted as saying:

"In this neck of the woods, a street party about celebrating anything to do with royalty is a bit of a no no.

If it had been about Celtic or Rangers winning the treble, I guess there would have been a lot of demand.

There is some support for the royal couple but not to the extent of having a street party, so we gave up on the idea.

We have instead written to the couple to ask if we can use their photograph on a booklet of important local marriages which we may produce."


Important local marriages? Whit part o Shettleston dis Kate come frae?

The last party ah remember fur a Royal wis the Queen's coronation party in 1953 - ah wis only 5 years auld at the time.

Quite frankly - Glasgow and Glaswegians, have more to think about than, lets have a party and celebrate the marriage of a couple of English Aristocrats.

Oh aye an another wee thing - a never knew, they were from Shettleston.

Ah mind o´a George Middleton fae the Bowery in Shettleston but Saxe-Coburgs were prominent by their absence. Mind you, we were aw staunch Jacobites an that probably deterred them. laugh.gif

Why would anyone want to sit in the street and celebrate the wedding of someone they don't know? They could be perfectly decent people but to me, and thousands like me the issue is what the represent. As Shelley said about Royalty sic 'They are the straw that ties the robbers bundle, the pinnacle of corruption'. In other words they are the justification for inherited wealth and privlege.

In 70+ years in Glasgow [or just outside latterly] I have never heard of a street party. Has anyone ever considered the weather?

Main reason I will be watching is that the English(note English) are great at putting on a terrific spectacle for all the world too see.The ordinary TV during day is rubbish so be nice to see something special.I saw all the other Royal Occasions so no point in missing this one.Hope their marriage lasts bit happier and longer than some of their predecessors and when you think Duke of Windsor had to give up Throne because he wanted too marry Wallis Simpson changed days right enough

Who can blame anyone for not being interested in royal weddings, this country is in recession and most people are struggling to make ends meet and in my opinion the last thing our elected crooks should be spending money on is a wedding,especially a royal one no doubt costing hundreds of thousands of pounds of taxpayers cash,and did HMQE2 show any interest in coming to Scotland with her royal regalia after she was crowned,no,sorry that should read HMQE1 as theres never been a QE2 in Scotland.
