On "Brexit Night", Friday 31 January 2020, A Force For Good organised a Meet-Up in George Square, in the very heart of Glasgow, from 10.30pm-11.30pm. From 10.35pm, up until the "Brexit Bells" at 11pm, Alistair gave the following Speech.
Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you so much for coming along to celebrate this momentous night in Britain's life.
Thank you for coming along to do so...publicly...in the very centre of our Great British City of Glasgow!
Thank you for coming along to remind us all, and especially, the media, that there were over one million of us here in Scotland, who voted for this occasion; and that there are now many more who are happy to accept it, and who look to our shared British future...with hope and optimism.
And make no mistake, we are the optimists...and that's been proven by the media and newspapers today. We are the people who have British Pride in ourselves, and in the capabilities of all the people of our wonderful country.
This is a date in our nation's life which will be remembered for generations to come. It marks the beginning of true British Independence
The United Kingdom's membership of the Common Market came into effect on 1 January 1973.
Well, tonight, here in George Square, 47 years and 1 month to the day later, that membership ends...in 25 minutes.
And as we await our countdown – and we have recorded the bongs of Big Ben on our Speaker here – let us reflect on the massive potential positives which are opening up before us.
And as we do so, let us reach out to those who are not with us tonight – to those who have fallen for the media scare stories; to those who think it is the end...of the world. Don't be depressed.
We hold out our hand to you.
We say, join with us because the positives are all...on our side. We are the optimists.
