Comment on History, Neighbours and Made Up News by The Cat NR1.

It still seems strange having someone with an NR accent telling it like it is about Scottish football.
Maybe it needed someone from without to finally announce that the emperor has no clothes?
All we need now is someone equally honest to take over on the sixth floor and replace the charlatans Regan and Doncaster.
The edifice is cracking, slowly but surely.

If only the BBC were to start taking Scottish football seriously, we’d be in the home straight, but nonsense like this preview of the Aberdeen match tomorrow completely undermines the truth and gives the impression that either there is preset agenda or wilful ignorance at play. Neither does the national (funded by us of course) broadcaster any favours.
Why use literary gymnastics to come up with “the Ibrox club’s 2012 financial implosion” to avoid stating the actuality of what happened?
How much else are they not telling us in other areas on which they report, or is it just the one specific area?

Is it safe? Is it safe?
The Cat NR1 has been Off The Radar for a while, mostly due to an overload of MSM “OF” necromancy that meant a step back into the real world was in order. I’ve now got my whiskers set to full twitch and my claws nicely sharpened , with the litter tray of Neil Doncaster’s fantasy world just waiting for an overnight feline deposit.
Is it safe? Is it safe?
Questions. Questions.
Why are Doncaster and Regan in office?
Do Sky TV think that selling the liquidation survival myth to people that think that the SPFL Premiership is a pub league (that’s the English workplace opinion) is actually better than being honest?
Slightly rhetorical, but how does the licence fee funded BBC get away with lying to the licence fee payers (well, us really)?
That’s actually an honest question, as we all have to admit to the existence of Santa and the tooth fairy as being somewhat economical with the acualitee (sorry to those that read the SMSM about that hating lie).
It’s a funny old game.
Sky TV employ various pundits that have interesting personal tax relations with HMRC without any comment or embarassment.
The sight of Sounness, McCann, McLeish on Sky and Thompson on Sportscene would ask questions if the relevant information was properly disseminated.
Sam Allerdyce is now available as a pundit.
Answers? Answers?
Is it safe?
Probably not, but. the The Cat will be looking and asking.

It’s nice to see that the BBC is carolling from the SkySports songsheet in the above article.
“OF” mentioned twice and some top level liquidation denial thrown in for good measure.

Any chance of this happening in Scotland?

What do the various Rangers have to show for their loans fundamentally hee haw I believe. Nothing has been done to build potential long term income streams via improved facilities or some other projects. It seems that the assets have declined in value and future fixed costs are likely to rise in the form of deferred maintenance. There may be a baldrickian plan and opportunity available for some rich tax pauchler but I do not know what it is -perhaps some advice should be sought.
I suspect that rather than one of Baldrick’s cunning plans, they will go with the tried and tested Earl Haig’s underpants over the head and pencils up the nostrils. And we all know how that ended up.
It wasn’t the admininistration and liquidation to end all administrations and liquidations though. Deja vu?

Using EBTs incorrectly in order to reduce your tax was never a “loophole” it was classic tax avoidance.
Tax avoidance is not and never has been perfectly acceptable as some people would have you believe. That is tax management.
Tax avoidance is using a legitimate scheme, incorrectly, for a purpose which was never intended.
Investing in an ISA is tax management.
Using an EBT to receive contractual payments is tax avoidance.
That’s heading into tax evasion territory.

And if they can do that without our contribution..” _____________ But fear not! The 4-year-old club will get a bob or two from the friendly with RB Leipzig in January, and, the rumour mill grinds out, a lucrative sponsorship deal from the owners of that 7-year-old club, none other than Red Bulls.it.  Possibly even a buy-in!
Would they bring out a special OrangeBull to mark the occasion?
500M potential worldwide customers could generate a huge turnover, and with the club/company/engine room subsidiary getting 1p cashback for every 1,000,000 unit sales of OrangeBull that could solve the funding plan (or is it business plan?) gap almost overnight.
I’m sure Neil Patey would confirm that to be the case.
