J is for John Smeaton

On June 30th 2007, terrorists launched an attack at Glasgow airport.

An explosives packed, burning jeep was driven into the entrance of the airport. An off-duty baggage handler heard the commotion and rushed out to see what was going on.

On seeing the burning vehicle and one of it’s occupants attempting to flee, this Scotsmam is reported to have shouted, “fuckin’ mon, then!” and aimed a kick at the goolies of the fleeing figure.

This man was a Weegie. His message to terrorists was “Glasgow doesn’t accept this. This is Glasgow; we’ll set aboot ye.”

This man was John Smeaton.
