Prevent the Use of the Jilli Blackwood Scotland Uniforms

    1. Petition by

      Richard Brown

      Glasgow, United Kingdom

The uniforms being used for the Commonwealth Games are truly horrendous. Please step in and prevent them being used while there's still time for an emergency Plan B - before our poor, brave-faced athletes are subjected to parading around in them.

These uniforms are an embarrassment to our athletes and to Scotland.

Please also investigate who selected this travesty of a design.

      update: It's been suggested by at least 1 MSP that by signing and complaining about the uniform we don't support the team. I think it's fairly safe to say that the vast majority of signatories support the athletes wholeheartedly - finding this uniform horrific is an entirely separate issue, and the two shouldn't be clouded together as politicians often try to do.
      "It's bright, it's visual - it'll stand out!" - I don't think many on either side are disagreeing with that...
      As for "It's only a parade uniform!" - that's one of the most important uniforms to get right. Try to imagine any other kind of group marching around in this uniform: marines? Queen's guard? Police officers? NHS staff? ...politicians? Would MSPs be willing wear this uniform for the opening/closing ceremonies? Sharing such a smart-looking uniform with our athletes would be an incredible show of support.

      I wonder who ordered the early

      closure of this petition

      Must be someone who is without knowledge of correct Highland dress code. Hmmmmmm.

      We have the finest national dress in the world, and she has reduced it to a ridiculous, Brigadoon travesty. We'll be laughed off the park - and rightly so!

      The uniform for team Scotland, Uk is just embarrassing not only for Scotlands aathletes but the entire nation.
