  4. Glasgow Southside 'united against the fascists'


    Anas Sarwar responds to the ugly scenes of fascism he faced at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow earlier, and Nicola Sturgeon's clash with far-right candidates in Glasgow on Thursday.

    He says: "Every single time the far-right hate has tried to come to the southside, we as a community have united against them and rejected them.

    "Myself and Nicola Sturgeon might have many differences of opinion politically but when it comes to fighting bigotry and hatred and intolerance we, and large parts of Scotland, are united against the fascists."

    He said he was pleased with what he had achieved in Glasgow, saying Labour was "back on the pitch", increasing vote share by about 9%.

    "I'm not pretending this journey is complete," he said. "I am not interested in building the opposition, I want to build the alternative."
