    If the entity, the institution, the culture that had threatened you, harrassed you, gloated in your demise, wished you dead, called you soap dodging soup taking terrorist scum, told you the famine was over why dont you go home, had by their own hubris swallowed themselves up in their own filth to obliteration.


    Why oh why would you want to pay in any way shape or form to see them again?

  2. It’s that same culture that brought up one of them to almost take my life Mags. Literally another half mil and I wouldn’t be here talking to you.



    I will always face that down.

    I understand completely the stance you take.



    I am currently trying to rustle up my kids to attend the 11 pm kick off in Cheers bar , Sydney.


    If I were in Glasgow , I would be desperate for tickets to attend the game. For me and them.


    I want to see Rangers humiliated .


    The institution that is. Not the players , not the supporters .


    Thats the institution which played a significant part in the evils you describe.


    Is a desire for some public retribution such a bad thing ?


    I also represent those who came before and had to tolerate what we all have and sadly are unable to attend.


    For me , the financial aspect is irrelevant.



    I say again , I completely understand the stance you have chosen to take.

    I almost started this post with ” great story”. That would be most inappropriate as it’s not a great story, it’s a tragic story, but a story well worth hearing.


    My daughter ( you’ve met her at the Kano night, but won’t remember as you were on duty that night and dealing with many people) works with dementia sufferers, indeed last year she received an award or her services to training and development in the field, and she would endorse your comments on this dreadful illness.


    On the positive side, if there is such a thing as a positive when discussing dementia, there have been tremendous breakthroughs in how to care for sufferers.


    Not in the way of drugs, but more to do with the way we should interact with a dementia patient. How we communicate with them.


    Too much to go into on here but if you can take any comfort from such a dreadful condition, then it’s the fact that a great deal of work is going on in the field, to make life as worthwhile as it can be given the circumstances of this condition.


    Hope you’re well D.

  9. MWD great memories of a great man and leader. You will remember that tall handsome goalkeeper who saved Billy’s penalty in the senior final ( aged ten or eleven), that was me. My wee cousin Craig, Judester are you on, was a stand out centre forward and would have impressed Billy. The next year Bobby Lennox and Tommy Callaghan took the centre stage but how could you top King Billy. Hail Hail.

    A little addendum to my above post. My youngest, Chris, whom you have also met, cares for my elderly uncle. 2 weeks ago he organised a little dinner party for my uncles 90th.


    My daughter referred to earliest was assisting him with the arrangements and they’d drawn up a seating plan. She had positioned herself at the top table, telling me that she had done so because my uncle’s brother was attending and was a dementia sufferer so she would look after him on the evening.


    On the evening itself, they had brought along a family album of yesteryear, and I watched my uncle and his brother flick through the album spending a few very happy hours reminiscing and smiling, and for that few hours, you’d never have known there was a dementia sufferer in the room.


    Heart warming actually to see them both so happy and enjoying the family get together.


    ( just thought I’d add that wee happy ending to my contribution:-)

  11. MWD dementia is extremely difficult for the family and friends of those who are slipping away. My limited experience of my own family is like watching a life being peeled back like an onion. Last week I listened to a motivational speaker talk about her awesome mother who had about a minute of short term memory. She turned it into a positive thinking that her mother got to experience happiness every minute, as if it was the first time. We could all learn from that, remember to live life to its fullest. Lots of CQN have friends and families going through tough times. Nega hope your sis gets well whatever is going on. Thoughts are with all who are struggling with illness and always hope that life will get better for them.

    It`ll be interesting to see how many French people vote for , and I quote , fascist scum .



    Perhaps that term may well then be described as racist.



    Vive la France.

  13. Macjay what is racist is the racist french national front gettin air time on the blog of a club who would be shutddown if we were in france and they achieved power.


    They are the politics of skin pigment


    With zero polict.


    Vacant and dangerous.

    One day the realisation may dawn on those who use inflammatory language about the political views of others.


    They are the real fascists.


    The book burners.



    Currently 29 per cent is apparently the level of support in the French electorate for Marine le Pen.


    All supporters of fascist scum ?


    Is that not in itself racist ?



    Vive la France.

    Amazing post through the night pal.


    You’re some Bhoy. Eloquent, deep and quick witted. And as always, too hard on yourself, while so quick at seeing the good in others.

  16. I met the big man last season along with my brother, he knows us both very well, more so my brother, it was a very sad and uncomfortable meet but big billy was in good form, as in cases with people with this terrible illness all you can do is go into they’r world with them and make them as comfortable as possible, it was no labour, or hard work, in fact he was comfortable with the conversation, and it was a pleasure just talking to him again, but knowing that I still have those great memories he gave me hit me hard after the day we spent with him, I’ll leave it at that and wish him and his family comfort and care for a genuine Legend.

    If you rhink I am racist for calling the french nazi party fascist scum.so be it.


    Fascist scum whether it be 0.0001% who voted or be it 99%.They are right wing nazi scum.


    I find the real fascists are the ones who think fascist right wing scum are ok dudes qho havw something to say.they dont.its alk bout the skin pigment and pitching human against human.in short.empty vacant self entitled scum.

  18. I remember when National Front types were considerate enough to wear swastika badges and wear red laces on their Doc Martins to make them instantly recognisable.



    I still see them just as clearly when they’re wearing their sharp suits and posh frocks.



    Didn’t think I’d see them running USA and potentially France. But really never thought I’d see them championed by supporters of a Club open to all, founded to champion the underdog and redress economic inequality.

  19. Direct liks to Marine Le Pen, deary me, they’ll be selling Theresa May blow up dolls on here next from a PO box in Sydneys leafy middle class suburbs..




    I expect it to be ramped up as well by Ole Major Whataboutery in the near future, nothing emboldens the ole NF’ers like a wee bit of perceived success.



    They pick up their rifles and shoot innocent people in bars for the colour of their skin in places like Kansas.




    So where do Marine Le Pens ideologies fit with Celtic’s?? I look forward to that debate eh Major…



    Empire Biscuit anyone..
