Aberdeen, Aberdeen, all the ScotNats we have Seen
But we swear to you by all our Flags Above
We will count them one and All
And one day their cause will Fall
Aberdeen the Silver City that we Love
A Force For Good was in the beautiful British Silver City of Aberdeen today, in our wonderful United Kingdom, and we counted the "All Under One Banner" (AUOB) marchers as they shambled up the appropriately named Union Street (named after the 1801 Union with Ireland), which was just along from Union Terrace Gardens, which sits beside Union Terrace, which is just round from Union Square, just round from Union Row, just round from Union Wynd, just round from Union Grove and Union Glen.
It seemed even the city streets were telling them that Aberdeen is British and British it shall remain!
As usual, we filmed and counted them in order to ensure they can't get away with their lies.
Our official count is now in and it is 2,563.
We did not include any bikers in the 2,563 figure.
A Big Thank You to everyone who joined our Thin Red Line for an exciting and enjoyable day.
Our colourful presence reminded everyone that: We're British, we Love the UK, and we Want Us to Stay Together!
Think about this...
What would happen if A Force For Good were not at these events?
Who would stand up for the UK?
Would anyone know there were even people in Scotland who liked being British?
This is absolutely vital work that our activists are doing. No-one else is able to step up and do it. And to do it so well. That's an undeniable fact.
Here's the Accurate Tally which we've Counted so far!

Our Count Protocol
1- We count every adult on the road (unless they are simply crossing over the road)
2- Our presumption is always to be generous. We do not want to under-estimate. For example, if we can't tell if it is 1 or 2 people behind a flag, we go with 2. If we can't tell if it is 3 or 4, we go with 4, and so on.
3- We count people on the pavement only if they are clearly part of the march, such as dressed for the occasion/carrying a flag.
4- No children who look 14 or under are counted, since they are only there because their parents have brought them along. However, the video evidence usually shows that there are only a few of them anyway, so if you want to count them in too, you will find it doesn't make much difference to the overall figure.
5- The handful of Marshals standing next to AFFG, are added in.
6- We will indicate whether our figure includes the "Bikers".
We count the entire march, head by head. You can do so too by occasionally pausing the video.
If you simply want to confirm that we are in the approximate ballpark, then here is what you can do: You can count several 1 minute periods at the beginning, middle and end of the march, find an average and multiply it by the number of minutes which the march lasts.
