The Red Flag was raised.
The British Government mobilised troops, and arrested the leaders.
Many of these heroic socialists were later elected to Westminster.
All of the Red Clydeside MPs subsequently backed a 1924 Private Members Bill by George Buchanan, which advocated a fully independent Scotland within a federal UK.
The Speaker refused to allow closure of the debate, and the Bill fell.
For Gordon Brown to claim that the Red Clydesiders would have been supporters of the NO campaign in the referendum tarnishes their name and legacy.
They would have advocated a YES.

I have just been been listening to Prime Minister's Question Time.
Mr Cameron said he was going to help with the food banks.
The PM is abroad handing our money - not as loans - to every country in the world.
So why do we need food banks? Because we have given all our money away to people who have their own space programmes.

I echo recent disgust with Glasgow City Council's approach to parking fines. They are committed to profiteering, and have not an ounce of compassion.
As a healthcare worker I visit people with dementia in their homes. On a recent visit which I expected to be routine I paid for 40 minutes parking. Unfortunately I was faced with an individual in distress, and was 12 minutes late returning to my car.
The parking attendant had just issued the ticket when I arrived. I thought I might receive an understanding approach and I submitted a letter explaining.
All I got was a reply saying the ticket was correctly issued. I was not disputing that, but was hoping for an act of kindness. The type I showed in staying with a distressed individual.
