Chew Lips from Amsterdam
Just briefly, I touched on the Catholic/Protestant, William of Orange connection to Guy Fawkes and the "Anonymous" Buckingham Palace demonstration here.
Note that on Guy Fawkes night, (Catholic) Glasgow Celtic fans had already gathered in Amsterdam, ahead of their game last night. About fifty of them were attacked in a pub called the Old Sailor which resonates with (Dutch) William of Orange and his conquest pre Glorious Revolution.
Then last night, more fighting, with 44 arrests. BBC News
