Scotland on Sunday piece tomorrow: The rise and fall of the
rangerstaxcase blog

The earlier Tom English article is worthy of comment – it’s wrong in concept, misdirected and inaccurate.


rangerstaxcase not visible at the moment, but right from the outset there were some insidious attacks – some intimidating, some quietly menacing posts, that betrayed the reality of the subject. Only some made it to the RTC public interface but goodness know what they received `behind the scenes`, and from whom or on whose behalf. Tom English article accuses RTC of hiding – and others standing foursquare to the wind – is such a distorted one-sided perspective. Is there a rejoinder?

One aspect that interested me enormously at the time and still does was an occasional RTC observation that there were so many posts in RTC moderation – never published – that they could almost fill a separate or parallel blog.

When you think RTC with 140,000 posts on-line – that could be some `anti-matter` parallel timeline blog!

Do they still exist? I am curious as anything if the choice examples could be separately compiled and put up on a separate forum. That would be a fascinating exercise if still possible – if legal – but probably wishful thinking on my part – but it would represent the reality here in Scotland that has naturally informed and influenced many posters on RFC and here on TSFM.

I can understand their action to remove RTC visibility if some have declared open season – and for twitter they did say weeks back the account would cease on publication of the FTT – job done essentially. I hope, and I`m sure many others do that rangerstaxcase is not lost or forgotten forever.

What is true – alas it can`t be referenced at the moment – but it was evident that earlier RTC blog post comments sections were pared to the exact pertinence and informative. The result was concise quality – from all sides in combination – interspersed occasionally with sometimes negative trolls – forming dramatic reading in sequence including key moments of events in progress – and no lack of humour – or creativity.

In the latter un-redacted blog sections the general criticism of smug self-righteousness is way inaccurate but there were a couple. More accurate would be some TUs chasers on repetitive messages – but they were a minority. Anti-RFC? There were many on RTC, including RTC pointing to solutions and warning of the media – and, it didn`t start off that way – anti MSM did and for good reasons still exampled daily. `Anti Rangers` was more curiosity observing the bizarre – coupled with denial and attitude issues that seemed to spiral problems. If anything MSM owe RFC explanations Mr English to justify their actions rather than casting around with unfounded stereotypes.

I would have to add observations of the actions of the SFA, SPL cavorting and the curiosities of the take-over later the administration was the majority input postings supported by expert comment and analysis – so Tom English has that wrong too in his limited simple title generalisations that mentioned none of that – or is that RTC `losing sight of its principals`?

Objectively there were latterly very occasional posts that were plain bitter/frustrated or camouflaged trolls that could undermine – but such aspects are / were evident on other sites – and that includes TSFM on v rare occasions – even with the best efforts of moderation. 99.9% not crap is still true Mr English.

Not to mention the possibility of a HMRC appeal.
And RFC were guilty of nothing? Jabba again distorting facts and muddying waters, because RFC had accepted liability of the “wee” tax bill accumulated under Murray, and non payments of NIC and VAT payments under Whyte.

Fascinating stuff there – bravo

Traynor not sure that Mrs Crimson exists. He disn’t think there were any women involved. Jeez, has he read any of the FTT(T)?
He probably just read the few “favourable” paragraphs highlighted by Murray in his memo.
It certainly doesn’t surprise me that his own intellectual contribution on it’s contents amounts to: “I didn’y think there waz any burds involved”.

Justification for your own intellectual contribution[s]? Take your time.

A Sanity Clause for Xmas?
Looks like Rangers Oblivion is now assured. With luck CFC will disappear too, but it will take a couple of couple years, hopefully less, but good riddance to the endless mindless aggravations. Everyone will move positively on with their lives without this antiquated OF societal stain of negating / dividing communities.

This could work long term in Bears favour
