Just to say my thoughts are with you all, posmill. The thin veneer of civilisation cracks the minute
the power goes. I’ve already had three power cuts this month. (Rural Écosse)

Take care everyone.

The calm before the storm.

While I’m waiting I stumbled across a new search tool. It appears to have a neat way of accessing databases in the likes of BVI, Panama etc but I’m struggling to master it. If anubody wants to have a go feel free…….

Happy hunting!

Sloan was (and still is) strictly small-time. Got his break on Border Television – a two-minute slot per week on their news programme. Ever since then he’s been Billy big shot. Very creepy Guy.

Gary Ralston authored The Gallant Pioneers: Rangers 1872. A lamb-lover of the first water.

“In truth, it cost more to research than it will ever take in royalties, but the Gallant Pioneers was never about cash.
Forgive the arrogance, but this was a book to stand the test of time, not a get rich quick scheme destined to end up in the 50 pence bin at Bargain Books, hacked out in a couple of months then hacked down in price like World Cup souvenirs two months after the final has been played.
The Gallant Pioneers took three years to research and write, each character painstakingly studied before words were finally committed to the page. Rangers fans deserved nothing less, but ego also dictated the past be raked and raked again.”
Amazon review:
Review: on Amazon:
i’m the author’s little sister, Laura, and i can’t stress enough how proud i am of Gary’s book! It’s a true labour of love, which leaps out at you from every page. Even if you are not a Rangers fan, which i am not, i urge you to read this book. It’s a history of the club, of course, but it’s so much more than that. It’s a look at the history of Glasgow and the back stories of some fascinating individuals. It’s a long overdue book and every person i know who’s read it has said only good things!
Gary has worked so hard on this, and, believe me when i say this is not my sisterly bias, he deserves all the praise he has received for The Gallant Pioneers. Roll on the next book, big bro! (And while you’re at it, can you write my thesis, too? :-))

It is of course Butcher’s wife that’s the catholic. He has, subsequent to that piece, come out with some very uncomplimentary things about the Rangers support as a result of his experiences.

I’ll ask a mod and try to get back to you. It’s late….I might not get any sense out of them.

It could be a VAT- efficient way of invoicing (example: Snowcast?) or even just to send bampots or other interested parties on a merry goose-chase. Craig has also been known to call his companies similar names to better-known companies

It’s the address of “a” Tixway – but Tixway.b.v, not Tixway uk . Is that better?

“One of a handful of identified interviewees, the veteran Jack Irvine (played by Billy Riddoch), is alarmingly unguarded about his time as launch editor of the Scottish Sun. “I had a black book of cash payoffs,” he says, adding that payments were made to ambulance crews, social workers and royal staff. “Is it illegal to pay cops?” he asks, seemingly in all innocence.”

Another news outlet today reported that Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has claimed that Scottish Government phones have been hacked, less than a week after the First Minister told the Leveson inquiry that he believed illegality was rife across many, many newspapers. The evidence in the public domain that attests to the possibility of police corruption is everywhere. According to The Guardian’s review of “Enquirer”, a performance play based on interviews conducted with figures operating in the prevailing media environment, well kent face Jack Irvine is “alarmingly unguarded about his time as launch editor of the Scottish Sun,” and openly boasts of bribing the police.,_protection_of_sources.html

One of my previous links describes Willow as ” a company domiciled in the Seychelles”.

As posted elsewhere the young Craig in the nineties was described as ‘ the new David Murray” and his father, the Gillespies and Murray were all in the mining/ mining plant game in Bellshill at that time, so yes, he really could have been in with Murray and the Gillespies.

I would agree that it’s impossible to link the original fruit’n’veg/ frozen foods Willow in Bellshill with any of the current suspects (apart from the fact that Azure Support Services Ltd, a Murray Company at one point, were at Willow House, Strathclyde Business Park, Bellshill.) The co-incidence is no mare than that, I think.
The Seychelles Willow is the one.

Can anybody remember the Charlotte posting last week describing the original “Operation Charlotte” with Murray’s company and the “target” both as a different type of wood? Perhaps each “branch” of the scam has it’s own tree!
