The hand-painted 10-foot sign, which has been created on a trailer, has been parked on land belonging to Fairfield Sport and Social Club by Drumgeith Park. Graham Burns, who created the sign, said he is protesting against the decision to suspend parliament. The sign reads: “Get to fcuk u lying Torie baskets. Indy 2 Freedom.” A second banner reads “End London Rule”. Dundee City Council said they cannot remove the sign because it is on private land. Hi Graeme. My colleagues have just been out to check this and unfortunately it is on private land so we are unable to remove it. ^ — Dundee City Council (@DundeeCouncil) August 29, 2019 A protest against the decision to prorogue parliament will take place in Dundee City Square at 2pm on Saturday. The event has been organised by a group called Dundee Defends Democracy.
