Today, the SNP-appointed Presiding Officer Tricia Marwick instructed Parliamentary security to prevent members of FAC entering the debating chamber of the Scottish Parliament. We intended to do no more than wear t-shirts spelling out the message 'FANS NOT CRIMINALS'.

This illustrates what FAC has long argued - that the SNP government are not listening to football fans and to the country. FAC, along with every other group in Scottish civic society, has pointed out the flaws in the SNP's anti-Football Bill, not least how it restricts football fans' freedom of expression.

The SNP government's refusal to even let us hear their passing of the anti-Football Bill mery emphasises why the Bill has been described as the most illiberal piece of legislation ever seen in the 'People's Parliament'.
