Great British Union Day, Speech 2: Reasons Why we Love the Union

On Saturday 1st May 2021, A Force For Good held its "1st May, Great British Union Day" celebration in George Square, Glasgow. We were celebrating the 314th Birthday of the United Kingdom. On the other side of the Square, a Scottish nationalist group were agitating to destroy it! AFFG Founder, Alistair McConnachie gave two Speeches. The first one summarised why the Union of 1707 came about. The second one, based on the following text, described some benefits of Union today and looked with enthusiasm to the opportunity that our shared future will bring.

Folks, I'm going to say it again: we're Scottish and we're British. We love the UK, and we will Stay Together!

In the next 15 minutes, I'm going to give you a positive message about the United Kingdom, about our Nation of Unions through time, which has created today our Nation of Families.

You know, some of the people on the other side of the Square will ask "What is the point of the Union?"

Well, I'll tell them.
