Comment on Where now for the Judicial Panel Protocol? by Angus.

As for “crossbar challenges”, two punters have won a quarter of million doing the rugby version in England in the last couple of years.

Personally, I really don’t think RFC(shinynew) will survive long enough for it to take place. I don’t think Mr Charles thinks so, either. I certainly don’t think he intends to still be in charge by then.

I took the plunge and emailed Private Eye? Felt like a real amateur though.

Aye, me too. Quite a difficult thing to summarise in a short email!

Perhaps if Hislop gets a few emails on the subject he’ll take an interest. I directed them here and to RTC for background info. πŸ˜‰

Private Eye loves to get torn in where the MSM fears to tread, so fingers crossed …

He has them eating out of his hand. He could set up a stall outside Ibrox selling Sevco sea monkeys and magic beans right now. They’d queue round the block.
It’s been an incredible performance from Mr Charles. He’s played a blinder from the day he walked through the door into the public eye, after those weeks/months he spent sitting in the background absorbing everything like a sponge. His timing has been of Jerry Sadowitz standards, with each comment designed for either immediate bear/cash separation or to set his next move up.

I do believe Mr Charles has had this completely sussed from the very beginning, and is sharp enough to change direction as required – with possible outcomes differing only in the size of sack he needs to cart the cash away in at the end.

I’m not sure, therefore, why he came out with that one about being demoted to the bottom league “for not paying a fine”. It may have been a simple lie designed to deflect attention and belittle the charges against him, but I wonder whether there’s more to it.

Mr Charles is a hard-nosed businessman who is proving to be way harder-nosed than anyone else in the business he has chosen to plunder i.e. Scottish fitba. He has swatted dissenting voices aside and utterly silenced them, no matter their previous standing.

He knows that no-one is going to stand up to him now, and he cares not one bit for the future of our game.

The fatal mistake was letting him get the bears onside.

As it stands, there is only one winner in all of this and, ultimately, a lot of losers.

Ian Hislop – you’re up, mate.

Has anyone compiled a synopsis of current goings-on and forwarded it to Private Eye yet? Perhaps even a simple pointer to this blog may be of interest to them.

They did print an informed piece about Mr Whyte (or was it Mr Charles?) a few months ago, but seem to have let the issue slide since then.

I bet my “Tales From Topographic Oceans” gatefold sleeve they’d get stuck right in …

For an effective claim to be made it should be forceful and expeditious.
Trite comment: Try telling that to many 1970s TV presenters.

Real comment: Evidence gathering can take a long time, particularly where co-operation is not forthcoming. Justice is operated by heavy, slow-moving wheels.

A little light relief from the lad Mohsni (unfortunately “not a big name like Spanish Archer McCulloch”), talking in the Daily Record:


I thought the poor fellow was simply a rubbish fitba player, but he appears to also be a marble or two short.

(P.S. Split infinitives, I love ’em. Use them whenever I can – it’s a nonsensical “rule” of grammar. πŸ™‚ )

You write more like a Sandender

πŸ™‚ Surely you mean a Saniner? I spent many a happy summer day at Sanine beach, having walked over the hill fae Portsoy. Brilliant gun emplacement and tank traps. There was a great summer cafe in the old Church hall (I think it was) with a juke box and everything!

Upthehoops – I’m afraid that you may be taking a Glasgow-centric view there. I have a couple of excellent Irish friends here in Aberdeenshire. The only problem at all people here have with anyone of Irish descent is, dare I say it, when they’re part of the travelling community.

Danish – I also grew up in the East End. The East End of Portsoy. I assume that’s where you meant? πŸ˜‰
