I think Murray’s destiny was sealed by having to leave Fettes. (20k + p/a, not including board) when his father went broke.
The son of a coalman would get a tough time from the toffs – he’s not their type. He’s been driven ever since. A famouly generous man, also reputed to be a good cold reader and the type that would have a file on everybody he’s ever dealt with. The legendary wee black book of contacts that Irvine ‘lost’ before plod got their hands on it would also have been put to good use, backed up by Watson’s hair-trigger litigiousness.
I’m glad that Grossart, who is in print admitting to having an almost telepathic relationship with Murray, is finally beginning to get some scrutiny. You say his star has wained, Barca. I wouldn’t say that at all. I would suggest that he’s still very influential in almost every corridor of power. Murray’s continued ability to remain clean must be his retained ability to bring his ‘establishment’ chums down with him should he need to. I think we all know that day will never come.

Might be a little more difficult now that @pjz_1’s twitter account has been suspended.

Thanks for taking the time to PM me, JC. I’ve sent you a copy of the OoC’s own guidelines on what ‘recognised’ court reporters may have access to. Judging by today’s reporting restrictions, the Crown are quite rightly trying to keep a lid on idle speculation. I’m hoping this will not go so far as to prevent fair and full reporting of proceedings when the bunfight starts in ernest. Is Mr Doleman’s shorthand up to speed?02

Here’s an interesting report from The Drum pertaining to what was admitted into evidence in the Jerome case, and why:

Redistribution of Football Income – The Human Dilemma
Martin Williams in the Herald….

RANGERS chairman Dave King has had a claim for millions from the £18 million club oldco creditors pot thrown out by liquidators.

The South African businessman had claimed he was owed £20 million over an investment in the club 15 years ago, when Sir David Murray was owner. If he had succeeded it would have made him the third biggest creditor of the in-liquidation former operating company.

But the Herald understands the liquidators BDO have rejected his claim as an unsecured creditor – potentially raising the amount available to others stung by the oldco collapse. (continues for subscribers)

I acknowledge receipt of your message, BP, and have also provided a possible explaination by PM. I’ve just noticed the proposed change of date. Some of us well-organised types may have already booked rooms in anticipation. Many of the better billets are quite full, with an abundance of cheap rooms still available. What might that say about the demographic of the blog? (For the record, I’m in the cheap berths and that says it all about me!.)

Why We Need to Change
Late, wacky suggestion for the get-together: The ideal place would have to enable the most number of folk to get to the venue with the least amount of hassle. My guess is that almost everybody could get to Carlisle or Newcastle without changing trains. (or buses for us lower order types.)


Why We Need to Change
Wilson’s less than enthusiastic defence of his paymasters at the beeb will have been noted. Another coward not fit to call himself a journalist. There’s a list at the NUJ of nearly forty journalists who have been threatened by people associated with Rangers and the list will only get longer. Time to make a stand.

In other news, I’ve so far managed to get into double figures the number of companies that have had joint brokerage arrangements with The Rangers new advisors Peterhouse and their former brokers Zeus, of Imran Amhad fame.
