Comment on Whose assets are they anyway? by Danish Pastry.

Stuart & Tam were a mixed bag yesterday. On the evening show they seemed to face down reality a bit more, probably due to the correspondence received in the afternoon after the lunchtime show.

Guest Graham Spiers continues to puzzle and frustrate. Trying too had to be all things to all men. One thing that he came away with was that it was Craig Whyte who sank Rangers and the EBTs had nothing to do with that. Hmm…I’ve no doubt completely misunderstood but wasn’t the bill from the ‘wee tax case’ part of the debt mountain under Whyte that killed Rangers FC? And didn’t that go all the way back to EBTs where guilt not contested? 

Btw, nice offer from St Mirren yesterday. €6.99 for online match ticket. Excellent coverage in spite the relatively low gantry position (grrrrr). Interesting half-time feature as well. So that’s Raith & St Mirren with one-off match day online tickets. I’ll keep looking for others…

PS Bravo for latest podcasts BP

Good stuff James. Enjoyed the tweets from you & Grant. Judge seems engaged in the case, but he does have a lot of background info by now I take it.

For those not following on twitter it appears the RIFC argument re Green’s fees are similar to those I spoke of a while back. Some of the offenses under consideration occurred prior to Sevco being formed and Green becoming an officer so how can the company be held responsible had be liable to cover costs for those actions.
Interesting twist in that debate in court now seems to have moved to the legal definition of the club and how the relevant contracts work, who employed Green what was he CEO of etc
Depending on what Lord Doherty says that may throw the cat among a different set of pigeons for another day.

Brilliant from STVGrant & James Doleman. There appears to be an open can of worms among the pigeons where the cat landed 🙂

OT @JohnCkark
As a child in the East End I used wake up early at weekends. My mother worked in the Glen Dairies, so and I’d often walk to the one by Dunchatten Street and once out to the one in Parkhead/Shettleston at about 7am. There was also one next us near Meadowpark Street. In those days there were scents in the morning from bakers and the various. There was a little bakery next to the old Coia’s where they sold rolls. Fantastic smell in there, a bit like the smell of fresh Italian durum rolls. Something lovely about those deserted early morning streets. This summer I took my kids on a very early morning visit to the East End. Coia’s opens for breakfast a later on Sundays so I had time to drive them out to the revamped area around Celtic Park and then on a donner off to Saint Annes on Whitevale Street (where ma auld maw used to attend). After that I went to pay homage to the remaining facade of Whitevale Baths and to see how far the demolition of the twin towers had come! And through it all some of the familar scents remain.

Danish Pastry has indeed been absent of late. I will drop him a note to inform him of your plea…
Godmorgen allesammen. 
I’ve been absent without leave. Mostly following events via twitter (where I tweet far too much about issues not relevant or welcome here 13 ). Hopefully, there’ll be a theme park one day, based around these sagas, with various ‘rides’ (not all free, obviously, tee-hee).
Onwards and upwards.
PM sent to JC.

Fascinating encounter John. Interesting, too, that he agreed to meet you afterwards. 
Sadly, it appears not only the authorities, but also certain club chairmen have decided to take the path of least resistance. This corruption won’t end well. It’s just a pity not one newspaper will run the story. As mentioned before, it’s like fitba’s All the President’s Men withoot the good MSM media guys. 
Still, I reckon the SFA are worried. And the campaign to promote the liquidation lie and the same-co narrative is costing certain folks a fortune. They’re all on borrowed time and borrowed money.

Morning all? Birdsong and blue skies in North Zealand today. 
John, I posted a response to your meeting with Regan. I was auto-informed it was ‘spam’ and it wiz flushed doon the virtual cludgie 🙂 Don’t have time to re-write again. But, summa summarum – bravo!

John Clark Meets “The SFA”
Bravo JC for the interview report. Been following reaction to it. Feels as though genuine movement finally being made to bring issues into the wider public domain. JJ is making a fascinating contribution, too, and quite often echoing sentiments expressed here for the past many years. And his sense of fair play and sporting justice is exemplary. Phil is still adding some deeper insights even though he has a momentous 100th anniversary on his mind, and a piece about that in the works. 

Not posting here much myself, but so many others far more capable do that. Keeping up via twitter, etc. 
Godt nyt år and onwards and upwards in 2016 (somewhat belated).

Two wrongs and a right

Happy Christmas Eve everyone on here.
Lovely post jimbo. Brought back memories of gazing into Doig’s Toy Shop on Duke Street in the weeks before Christmas — and the gradual appearence of Christmas trees in folks windaes. Certainly cheered up the black tenements and the dreich 1960s East End in winter. Poverty was a way of life for many of us East Enders, so dreams of Doig’s toys usually remained in the window of Doig’s. Still, selection boxes and annuals were braw, and oranges and thrupney bits in yer stocking wurnae too bad either. In those days you got on with it, Christmas wasn’t hyped up as it is now. I expect children facing poverty today, and who experience a ‘modest’ Christmas, probably feel it more deeply than some of us did because of the slick commercialism promoting a form of celebration not all can afford. 

As an exile with Christmas Day on the 24th in the evening, it seems a long way from Duke Street. But your past never leaves you. I think there’s a wee bairn in aw of us still oan Christmas Eve 🙂

Big thanks to all the excellent contributors to this blog in 2015. All the best you and yours this Christmas and onwards and upwards in the new year when it comes.
