Ashley v SFA: CoS-Outer House 4-5 Feb 2016

This is a record of what I am sure I heard, as it was said. People spoke sometimes quickly, sometimes softly, sometimes changing their sentence in mid-stride, sometimes ‘umming and erring’, sometimes abandoning their line of thought or a half-askedĀ  (or, maybe, half-arsed, question). I scribbled down what I clearly heard as best I could. (I did hear the ‘rising from the ashes’ bit that eJ posted, but I think I was laughing with incredulity and didn’t write it down).

I have left blank spaces where I could not read my own writing or simply hadn’t heard at all, or heard only partly. And here and there I have put in a suggestion as to a word or phrase that might have been used but which I either did not hear or for some reason did not scribble down. I have not deliberately invented anything or put words in people’s mouths that changed the meaning of what they were saying.

Nevertheless, I don’t claim this to be anything other than my personal notes, honestly written. John Clark. 07/02/16 Read More

John Clark Meets “The SFA”

Regular posters and contributors to the SFM may remember that in October last year I wrote to Mr McRae, President of the SFA.

I had not received a reply or acknowledgement by 12th December, so I sent a reminder. I received a reply to that reminder, dated 16 December 2015, in which Mr McRae apologised for not having responded to my previous letter, and invited me to come and see him. We arranged that I should visit him at Hampden on 19 January 2016 at 2.00 p.m. Read More
