I went to bed on Thursday night hopeful that even if we didn’t get our independence, the amount of political interest the referendum has stirred up on both ends of the border would allow people to take a stand and fight for a better country nationwide.
But as I was coming home last night I overheard a young lad on the phone to his mum being told to avoid the city centre as riots were breaking out. Once I got home I checked the internet and found that the situation was absolutely volatile. I know it wasn’t completely one sided but the majority of the violence came from pro-unionist no voters who were supposed to be celebrating, imagine they lost?
I leave for ibiza at 6am tomorrow morning, all my clothes are scattered on my room floor and I just can’t bring myself to get the packing done!
