Taxi driver given ban for throwing men out of cab

‘An apology would have been better. If anything I hope it raises awareness of the Irish in Glasgow – Anthony Blair.

A GLASGOW taxi driver had his licence suspended for throwing two men out of his cab for speaking Irish.

• ‘GOOD OUTCOME’: Anthony Blair

Alan McKinnon has been banned for a month and must complete a customer courtesy course after the hearing in Glasgow. Mr McKinnon, from the Bridgeton area of the city, appeared before Glasgow City Council’s licensing commitee earlier this week. The hearing related to an incident on December 16 when Donegal brothers, Anthony (20) and Joseph (22) Blair from Gweedore, were visiting their grandmother in the city. The pair, who were with their cousin Kathleen McAleer, who is from Glasgow, got into a cab in the early hours. The Hampden Cars driver claimed at the hearing that the exchange came about when one of the group began to chant “There’s Only One Glasgow Celtic’. He claimed that when he asked for the chanting to stop, one of the passenger’s said: “You must be a Hun then?” The driver said he replied: “Thats right, I’m a Hun” at which point the two brother’s began to speak in Irish prompting him to ask them to stop.

According to the passengers, Mr McKinnon told them “well, when you’re in Britain it’s English that’s spoken”.The driver then ordered the four passengers out leaving them at the side of the road at 1am. A complaint was lodged with the council’s taxi enforcement unit and referred to the licensing committee. During the hearing, Euan Robertson, a lawyer acting for Mr McKinnon, said his client beleived the pair were “plotting” and only removed them from the cab as they would not stop speaking Irish. The committee suspended his driver’s licence for a month and ordered him to complete a customer courtesy course. Speaking after the committee hearing student teacher Anthony Blair described the outcome as “good” and said he was pleased to see the driver had been asked to undergo the course. “I was not looking for anybody to lose their job or anything like that,” the Gweedore man said. “An apology would have been better. If anything I hope it raises awareness of the Irish in Glasgow.”

The Roll of Honour lyrics

Read the roll of honour of Ireland’s bravest men.We must be united in memory of the ten. England you’re a monster, don’t think you have won.We will never be defeated while Ireland has such sons. In those dreary H-Block cages, ten brave young Irishmen lay. Hungering for justice as their young lives ebbed away. For their rights as Irish soldiers and to free their native land. They stood beside their leader – the gallant Bobby Sands. Now they mourn Hughes in Bellaghy. Ray McCreesh in Armagh hills. In those narrow streets of Derry, they miss O’Hara still. They so proudly give their young lives to break Britannia’s hold. Their names will be remembered as history unfolds. Through the war-torn streets of Ulster the black flags did sadly sway. To salute ten Irish martyrs the bravest of the brave. Joe McDonnell, Martin Hudson, Kevin Lynch, Korean Doherty. They gave their lives for freedom with Thomas McElwee. Michael Define from Derry you were the last to die. With your nine brave companions with the martyred dead you lie. Your souls cry out: “Remember, our deaths were not in vain. Fight on and make our homeland a nation once again!”.

The Roll of Honour  rocketed up the ‘hit list’ this week after Celtic supporters in Scotland launched a campaign to see it reach number one by Sunday by downloading via the internet. The move came after the Scottish authorities outlawed the singing of Irish ‘rebel songs’ at Scottish football grounds under the Offensive Behaviour At Football Act. The campaign is being organised by a Celtic supporters’ umbrella group, Fans Against Criminalisation (FAC), which has been given permission to release the song by folk band, The Irish Brigade. Originally penned in the 1980s, the song pays tribute to 10 IRA and INLA members who died during the 1981 Hunger Strike. The song’s lyrics include the line: “England you’re a monster, don’t think that you won, we will never be defeated while Ireland has such sons.” And in the final line calls on people to “fight on” for a free Ireland. A number of people have been convicted for singing the song at Scottish football grounds while several are currently awaiting trial.

Despite this, last April a Celtic fan was cleared of inciting public disorder by a Scottish court after he was detected singing the song at a football game in Dundee. Ulster Unionist Party justice spokesman Tom Elliot said the FAC campaign was an “absolute disgrace and I condemn their actions without reservation.” He also urged Celtic Football Club to take action. “This is not an issue that can be swept under the carpet. Stern action is required so that the club’s good name is not tarnished by assocation with people who would seek to glorify terrorism,” he said. Loyalist victims’ groups have also condemned the campaign. GREEN BRIGADE SECTION 111Rebel songs have been sung by a section of the Celtic support for many decades. Other songs with an Irish theme regularly heard at Celtic games include The Fields of Athenry and the ballad of Aidan McAnespie – a young GAA player shot dead by the British army near Aughnacloy in Co Tyrone in 1988. A spokesman for FAC defended the download campaign. “The campaign is not about encouraging people to sing the song, it’s about saying this song should not be a criminal offence to sing,” she said. “It’s not a criminal offence unless you are a football fan. “The Offensive Behaviour At Football Act is a bad law which attempts to restrict freedom of expression and that is wrong.” A sectarian song associated with Rangers supporters led to months of unrest and the creation of a new parades flashpoint in Belfast after it was played by a loyalist band outside St Patrick’s Catholic Church in North Belfast. The anti-Catholic lyrics of The Famine Song instruct the Irish community in Scotland to “go home”. Loyalist Billy Hutchinson called the campaign “insensitive and childish.” The Progressive Unionist Party leader said: “Many people will find this initiative callous and insentive, particularly those who have been victims of republican violence and terror. “There seems to be an increase in sectarianism associated with fans of Celtic FC and I think it is time the club acted to address this. “This really amounts to nothing more than a pathetic and childish act, and those responsible need to grow up.”
