Comment on Why the Beast of Armageddon Failed to Show? by Danish Pastry.

The Tom English piece is well written, but oddly, betrays some of the bitterness he’s accusing the RTC blog of. Of course, he is part of the media which has been so vilified and so a few digs at his prize-winning persecutor are only to be expected.

Perhaps too, he reveals a slight envy – of someone who had access to information that he didn’t. Strange thing though, very few reporters questioned those at the heart of the story to see if what was written on the RTC blog was true. Not many Woodwards and Bernsteins in Scotland. Except for a few notable exceptions, no one really ran with the revelations.

I still think Mr English is one of the better reporters. He comes across as being his own man and did interview Whyte early on. He is polite towards James Traynor and certain other media icons, but you get the feeling that he is also a tad dismissive of their chosen role as the authorized cheerleaders.

I reckon Murray isn’t receiving the same level of threats as the whistleblower whom English unfairly describes as having run away. Media assets are even revising and restoring the image of the ex-owner. What is the price of lamb these days?

RTC did say his work would be over when the verdict arrived. Although I think he hoped to post a final blog on the interpretation of the judgment. I’d like to see that.

The whisky and cigars are on hold, and for all we know RTC might be in the Ecuadorian embassy! But maybe a 2-1 defeat wasn’t that bad anyway, especially if away goals still count double in the next leg 🙂

Now you intrigue me !….You still have full access to RTC’s website? Have you c&p sticked it all?

Seriously, what I posted previously was accurate.
You may have missed (post at 19:14) that I clarified that the article mentioned was not from the pen of RTC. It was posted by RTC but it´s author was a poster from a Celtic supporters website (can´t remember which).
RTC posted it early (well before 8am).

And RTC did partly blame himself as I´m sure some others on here will be able to remember.

Don’t remember RTC posting other than his own blogs. But I may be mistaken. You are entirely correct in that online media should also be open to question and scrutiny. No sacred cows, there’s enough of them in the regular media.

I must confess the nuclear event was of little interest to me. We should be dealing with the here and now. If there really was any sensitive information I can think of several reasons for not publishing, even though true. But until I hear and read the evidence I would put it in the unsubstantiated rumour box. And if the police are involved I expect we’ll only know after the event anyway.

Why are you so interested?

Andrew from Bridge of Weir giving Traynor laldy on Your Call. Traynor speaks like a paid apologist for Sir David Mintyballs. Bravo Andrew!

Why the Beast of Armageddon Failed to Show?
TSFM: Tommy in Glasgow has rebranded himself as Rangers Tax-Case TIG. He does put his point across, well, somewhat colourfully at tmes. I got the impression there might have been a complaint about something on his bampot radio page. At least from this tweet:

1st case of slander im 40,not 37.2nd case of slander,i wouldnt have handed myself in without doing a live show as it happens 🙂

But on reflection, it may not have been him at all. Could it have been someone who issued threats to RTC?

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!

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.
