‘No More Catholics!’ – Trainspotting Two Hits A High Note

I was visiting a friend in Port Glasgow after a match and we wander into a loyalist pub wearing a “Troops Out” badge. I was confronted by a man who had done several years in Barlinnie about the badge. Fortunately he was more tolerant than the crowd in the film and just gone a telling off.
