Yeh but it’s not just in activist spaces. I regularly speak to random old people who used to be in the communist party. There is a whole cohort of earlt millennial/gen x trots who were in the whole SSP thing before it collapsed. Most of these people are now in the SNP. You can walk into numerous Celtic pubs with che and Gaddaffi flags, fsln flags, etc. Glasgow itself is covered in various socialist memorials such as Spanish civil war memorials. There is a festival in paisley where they literally burn an effigy of a boss, although Paisley is technically not on glasgow, technically. No, you are correct there isn’t really a guiding party, but there is a huge communist and socialist culture. It’s a city where you extremely regularly meet people whose direct family (dads, uncles, grandads) were in the iRA/are currently in the IRA. The largest football club is explicitly anti fascist and lead the anti fascist movement for years. Being a Tory is a social faux pas, basically nobody who isn’t an out and out tarquin would ever admit to being a Tory. Toryism is shamed and bullied.
