It may just be me but RM is not accessible?

I’m sure the authorities may have received complaints about this and other similar sites, due to the concentrated sectarian and other abusive language. 😉

RM felt it necessary to post a warning to their users about the use of such language. As has been evident for a long time, their users chose to ignore that.

If it is the case that RM has finally been closed down, then they have no-one to blame but themselves.

Story just vanished – goodness me…………
Still links from Newsnow

Original link gives me a blank page (though the headline comes up at the top of IE), and can’t see it on Newsnow.

Did anyone copy the text?

RM back up and muck spreading!

Not here, it isn’t.

Banana boats … my friend google tells me this was a euphemism used for the sewage sludge boats that used to go up and down the Clyde. Relevant somehow, I wonder?

Maybe the phrase was in use before them? I don’t know.

“… I would go out to the fans, as we did earlier in the year, when they were consulted as to what division they wanted to play in. They wanted to play in the Third Division and we as investors listened to them and were happy to do that.”


What, he actually said that? Those words came out of his mouth? Shirley not.

And what’s this “we as investors” business? Quite apart from the complete fib he’s telling about why they ended up in Div 3, why say “we as investors” rather than “TRFC”?

Who is “we” if “we” doesn’t refer to TRFC?

Come on, Highlander. Are you trying to tell us that JJ and The Mensch are *different people*? 🙂

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. 🙂 )

You write more like a Sandender

🙂 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? 😉
