Anywhere but Warsaw

868

My thought on looking at our potential opponents this morning was ‘Anywhere but Warsaw’.  Our man Zbyszek tells me Legia were awful in the first leg in Warsaw against St Pat’s, where they drew 1-1 courtesy of a late goal, but we’ve been there.  Henrik Larsson & Co. drew 0-0 against St Pat’s at Celtic Park before winning 0-2 in the return leg.  St Patrick’s have a big job ahead if they are to progress.

A trip to Ireland on Champions League qualification duty for the second year running would suit Celtic, especially our Irish-based supporters, but my money is on a more testing trip to Poland; Ronny’s pulse should have quickened on the news.

Zbyszek doesn’t reckon have what it takes to eliminate Celtic. All being equal, that may be the case, but summer football will be unpredictable for both clubs.

I am, of course, being completely disrespectful to KR Reykjavik, who we annihilate next week.

    Cheers Bobby,

     

     

    I don’t think think it’ll be up to much tbh.

     

     

    Too many guys with one eye on the game against the winners of st pats and legia.

     

     

    I’m only Joshing before the Munch bunch fire in.

    It’s horrific and I mentioned it the other week.

     

     

    If the Barnett formula remains in place it’ll see funding for NHS Scotland reduced to such a level we’ll have no choice but it increase the amount of privatisation if we want services maintained.

    A year ago this weekend I was in Brentford.

     

     

    Development squad,a nothing game.

     

     

    Wrong!

     

     

    Great display from the young fellas,worthy winners.

     

     

    On top of that Brentford FC is the most pub-heavy ground in the country. I must have been in the lot of them.

     

     

    I started off in G-R-E-A-T company,with STEINREIGNEDSUPREME et al. Fantastic start to the day.

     

     

    I finished up in L-O-U-D company,The Wimbledon CSC. Bhoy,can they sing!

     

     

    Point being,no such thing as a nothing game-if yer there.

     

     

    That’s not having a go,btw. I don’t go to many games myself. Doubt my liver could handle it!

    I remember that,mate. And it’s disgraceful that it is being done under the counter and then rubber-stamped for eternity.

     

     

    I’m not sure even your average story voter would be in favour of it. Hence the way it is being done.

     

     

    And the secrecy involved.

     

     

    Scandal isnae a word I use very often so I won’t.

     

     

    But it’s a faffin disgrace that it has been allowed to happen.

     

     

    And worse that it is so under-reported.

    Hardly surprising since the implications of the NHS reform bill were barely covered by the press either.

     

     

    Also why I think Cameron wanted the EU referendum delayed. If it comes to pass that the EU is rejected it’ll be too late – the big healthcare firms will already be involved.

    Sorry, only managed to get as far as this bit.

     

     

     

    ‘I am sure Alex Salmond does too. After all, he didn’t expect the Labour Party in Great Britain and in Scotland to collapse quite so comprehensively as they did in 2010 and 2011, and thus make possible the election of a majority SNP administration at Holyrood.’

     

     

    The reason the nats won the Holyrood election was that the Lib Dem vote collapsed and switched en mass to the nats. The Labour vote more or less held steady. Check the figures.

  9. Meanwhile people are urged to build cairns to preserve the union. An interesting twist on Hadrian’s approach to Anglo-Caledonian relations.

    I make no bones about the fact that I have only ever voted Labour. Though I abstained 1997-2005.

     

     

    But I’ve also said that any party which promises to nationalise the utilities and the railways-add the NHS now!-will get my vote.

     

     

    TTIP will remove that option.

     

     

    It must be opposed by any means necessary. It is a modern-day equivalent of the banana republics and United Fruit.

    I’ll summarise for you. If ‘No’ wins, every time some crappy piece of legislation is foisted on us by Westminster by parties that didn’t receive a majority vote in Scotland we’re going to moan. A lot.

     

     

    The same way we expect ‘No’ voters will react should ‘Yes’ win and crappy legislation is foisted on us by the Parliament we chose for ourselves.

    The Mother Lodge,Kilwinning Number Nothing,is situated directly before the ruins of Kilwinning Abbey.

     

     

    It must have been some building,some of the walls are twelve feet thick.

     

     

    Anyway,the locals don’t like being asked why,if there’s so many masons in the town,they’ve never rebuilt the Abbey.

     

     

    Particularly when I’m at the bar and beating them all at pool!

    I’m still hopeful that Labour will get the message,and more importantly get the message out.

     

     

    If TTIP happens it won’t make any difference anyway.

     

     

    We might as well just chuck it.

    It’s a pair of generalised terms for ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ voters. I don’t necessarily include you or anybody else within such generalisations.

     

     

    Similarly I wouldn’t suggest you were an OO sympathiser, just because you happen to sympathise with one of their view points (assuming you are a ‘No’ voter and not simply acting as agent provocateur in order to get a more clarified debate).

    Labourlist are saying that they’ve got written assurances that TTIP doesn’t have to include the NHS. However they’re also not saying it’ll be excluded (as a fully public health service would be).

     

     

    Labour state that they’ll add inclusions to the the effect that the Govt can’t be sued by private firms, but that won’t be necessary since the health firms will get their way anyway.

    ==========================

     

     

    Do you have selective amnesia?

     

     

    Can you remember what the Health Service was like pre 1997?

     

     

    People dying on waiting lists just waiting for an appointment to see a specialist.

     

     

    Hospitals and GP surgeries falling down.

     

     

    NHS staff morale in the gutter.

     

     

    Labour put £19 Billion extra per year EVERY year into the NHS. That is extra on top of the budget.

     

     

    Geez peace with the lies on NHS safety with Labour pal.

     

     

    The Tories (this current lot) on the other hand, scrapped publishing waiting lists as soon as in power.

     

    They gave £80 Billion pounds of NHS money to GP’s to do PCT work.

     

    That’s £80 Billion of taxpayers money to private companies (cause that’s what GP’s are), they are NOT in the NHS, they are private companies.

  20. Just to inform Celtic cyber world that it has a new recruit. At 10:10 this morning Hamish Brady made his appearance at Glasgow royal infirmary. The tiny Tim joins Alice & Fergus, mother Glenda and father John, known on here as “The good ship Celtica”. May they have a wonderful journey ahead of them. From a vewy pwoud Papa Frantic 07.

    I don’t quite understand TTIP as it seems to contravene Contract Law and Anti-trust legislation.

     

     

    If a company has a five year contract they can hardly complain when it isn’t renewed,no matter how well they performed.

     

     

    That’s my concern,tbh. That it is removing more of our safeguards-such as they are-against unelected bodies sucking us dry.

    We all remember what it was like pre-1997. One of the things I take a great pleasure in pointing out is that Labour had a huge job in 1997 just to rebuild our infrastructure.

     

     

    And that it was done while improving the lives of most of our citizens.

     

     

    The Labour administration-at home,anyway-can hold its head high. It achieved things which the Tories could only dream of undoing.

     

     

    And they have.

     

     

    In spades.

    I’m just really cynical about Labour’s attempts to reverse the parts of the NHS reform bill that are leading to privatisation. It’s all very well backing a private members bill for November but they simply didn’t shout loud enough at the time.

     

     

    I don’t believe the changes they’re seeking to TTIP will be effective either.

    One last point before I hit my cot.

     

     

    As we are largely in agreement on the achievements of the last Labour administration,do you think we are better served by

     

     

    scaremongering the public and telling the truth,

     

     

    or by playing our hand close to our chest then discovering that the ace we had-the truth-has been trumped by a law we were too effin styoooopit to speak out against?

     

     

    Difficult one.

     

     

    John Smith told the truth about the country’s financial state just before the 1992 election.

     

     

    IMO,it was the main reason Labour lost.

     

     

    But he was right to tell the truth. And he was right to let the people who caused the problems take the blame.

  31. Just talked the good lady into using public transport when visiting time arrives, no parking problems, bus straight to the door, what could be easier?

     

    Oh and we are only a 10 min walk to the Gallowgate…that’s handy!

    Congratulations to Glenda :))))

  33. BMCUW

     

    Generally agree with you regarding the last Labour Government but one thing i fail to understand is why they didn’t ditch PFI, they should’ve stood up to the City and used Public Investment instead of the crazy Contracts that were signed under PFI. For years to come we’ll still be paying it back.

    I know what you mean,mate. That’s why I said I wasn’t having a go.

     

     

    I canny go to the games like I would love to do. So I do my best with the nearest I can get.

     

     

    It’s what we do. Always.

     

     

    Anyway,I’m meeting a right good Tim tomorrow in Oxford. We will weep for the injustices we have suffered then give it a huge GIRUY as we recall victories.

     

     

    Then we’ll probably discuss politix.

     

     

    Then we’ll recall more victories!

     

     

    It’s what we do when Celtic exiles get together.

     

     

    Argue like f..k and then laugh at the good memories.

     

     

    Innit great to be a TIM?
