Comment on Armageddon? What Armageddon? by Danish Pastry.

I see that @apocryphal5 is commenting on the dubious Charles Green story we’ve been wondering about the actual source of:

Questions being asked at BBC about yesterday’s Green returning to Ibrox story. Bosses want to know who sanctioned this claptrap.
1:57pm – 16 Jun 14

Here’s a pointer for Beeb chiefs – ask Chris McLaughlin about his dodgy Rangers info and why he gets others to write it up.
2:05pm – 16 Jun 14

Flight being called so just one other thing for the moment – new man is closing in on Ibrox but it isn’t Charlie.
2:30pm – 16 Jun 14

Herald on the story. Not sure Grant has the Green timeline completely correct. I believe he left first time amid the swirl of accusations concerning racism. Does make Imran’s hour-long chat with Tommy more relevant. Didn’t Imran mention being ready to become involved again, financially?

One thing that puzzles though is the source of these reports. Anyone know who put the Green story out? Green himself?

Plus ca change as Green fog continues to cloud dealings at Ibrox

P ERHAPS Charles Green has decided he fancies an extension on his £335,000 French chateau and needs to milk Rangers for some more dough to pay for it.

Unfounded rumour of the day

Someone stirring the pot?

Thing is, given everything that’s happened, it’s completely believable.

Danish Pastry has indeed been absent of late. I will drop him a note to inform him of your plea…
Godmorgen allesammen. 
I’ve been absent without leave. Mostly following events via twitter (where I tweet far too much about issues not relevant or welcome here 13 ). Hopefully, there’ll be a theme park one day, based around these sagas, with various ‘rides’ (not all free, obviously, tee-hee).
Onwards and upwards.
PM sent to JC.

Fascinating encounter John. Interesting, too, that he agreed to meet you afterwards. 
Sadly, it appears not only the authorities, but also certain club chairmen have decided to take the path of least resistance. This corruption won’t end well. It’s just a pity not one newspaper will run the story. As mentioned before, it’s like fitba’s All the President’s Men withoot the good MSM media guys. 
Still, I reckon the SFA are worried. And the campaign to promote the liquidation lie and the same-co narrative is costing certain folks a fortune. They’re all on borrowed time and borrowed money.

Morning all? Birdsong and blue skies in North Zealand today. 
John, I posted a response to your meeting with Regan. I was auto-informed it was ‘spam’ and it wiz flushed doon the virtual cludgie 🙂 Don’t have time to re-write again. But, summa summarum – bravo!

John Clark Meets “The SFA”
Bravo JC for the interview report. Been following reaction to it. Feels as though genuine movement finally being made to bring issues into the wider public domain. JJ is making a fascinating contribution, too, and quite often echoing sentiments expressed here for the past many years. And his sense of fair play and sporting justice is exemplary. Phil is still adding some deeper insights even though he has a momentous 100th anniversary on his mind, and a piece about that in the works. 

Not posting here much myself, but so many others far more capable do that. Keeping up via twitter, etc. 
Godt nyt år and onwards and upwards in 2016 (somewhat belated).

Two wrongs and a right

Happy Christmas Eve everyone on here.
Lovely post jimbo. Brought back memories of gazing into Doig’s Toy Shop on Duke Street in the weeks before Christmas — and the gradual appearence of Christmas trees in folks windaes. Certainly cheered up the black tenements and the dreich 1960s East End in winter. Poverty was a way of life for many of us East Enders, so dreams of Doig’s toys usually remained in the window of Doig’s. Still, selection boxes and annuals were braw, and oranges and thrupney bits in yer stocking wurnae too bad either. In those days you got on with it, Christmas wasn’t hyped up as it is now. I expect children facing poverty today, and who experience a ‘modest’ Christmas, probably feel it more deeply than some of us did because of the slick commercialism promoting a form of celebration not all can afford. 

As an exile with Christmas Day on the 24th in the evening, it seems a long way from Duke Street. But your past never leaves you. I think there’s a wee bairn in aw of us still oan Christmas Eve 🙂

Big thanks to all the excellent contributors to this blog in 2015. All the best you and yours this Christmas and onwards and upwards in the new year when it comes.
