Comment on .. and they wonder why nobody buys papers by Big Pink.

Roy Greenslade has reproduced the French ad he says was sent to the Guardian – along with a fairly conciliatory statement on the Res12 issue itself – on his Twitter timeline.

Now I have no doubt that CQN are telling the truth about never having translated the ad into French. So from where did this French version originate?

Really spooky.

.. and they wonder why nobody buys papers

The Lord Hodge delay is a reminder of how contrived and stealthy the whole process in the immediate post-CVA period was. I still do not think that the OCNC debate is a particularly worthwhile one, since it is already a matter of fact that the old club was liquidated. I’m not so sure that any further justification is necessary on our part.

On the other hand, the immediate post-Res 12 period is turning out to be a damp squib of collective amnesia  – and sadly, the same can be said of the TOG report on both Res 12 and the flawed LNS inquiry.

OCNC is a difficult thing to obtain traction because of the ‘black is white’ approach of the liquidation deniers, but LNS and Res 12 are both areas where the debate has managed to migrate from the parochial and escape to the notice of others. That is where we should be setting our focus I think.

On the Brian McClair thing, I have no special ‘in’ with him. I am also advised that he is not doing media interviews, so my guess is that there probably is a confidentiality clause.

Some access problems rearing their head again folks. The ‘login to comment’ just above thecommnt box is giving some folk a hanging dark screen. The workaround is to click on the “login” menu item at the top of the page.
The site needs a good spring clean and fresh look, so I’m gonna do exactly that over the weekend/early next week. I will get rid of the ads too, as I think they may be contributing to the general ague with the look and function of the site.
Thanks for your patience folks, but since we no longer have multiple moderators, I’m pretty much doing it all myself.
Really would be keen to hear from anyone who would like to contribute some written work?

Seems unlikely that Morelos is part owned by anyone else. However there’s only way of testing either theory is if he is transferred, and that seems an ever decreasing outcome given all we have talked about for the last four years is how much he will be offloaded for.
Also, what happens if he runs goes contract down? Would that mean that the 14% would also disappear?
Just doesn’t sound right at all.

Discovered a wee hack folks, which has prevented hundreds of users from posting. Now fixed. I’m off to hunt the hackers and close the door again 🙁

Very quiet the past couple of days, and John Clark tells me he’s having difficulty posting. I have posted test messages from three accounts and all seems to be well, however if anyone is having difficulties, please contact me by email at sfm@sfm.scot

Certainly not beyond the possible. Much bigger game being played on the Indy highway than in the narrow lanes of Rangers*
