Cheating, what about the next time?


“If we allow cheating in our democratic process, then what about the next time?  What about the time after that, right?  This is a breach of the law, this is cheating.  And the thing that’s really important to understand here is that this is not some council race or by-election, this is an irreversible change to the constitution settlement of this country.”

Christopher Wylie, in evidence to a Parliamentary Committee, yesterday, 27 March 2018.

I was disheartened when I watched this incredible testimony on the Brexit campaign last night.  Cheating creates winners and losers.  The winners are invested with power that contaminates others.  “Raking over the coals” soon becomes a hassle too far, not just when the SFA reject a request for a review from the SPFL, but when the livelihoods of millions are on the line.

Cheating is successful, apparently, and will continue in any given environment until the consequences are absolute.  The SFA should take note.  They have condoned the next cheat.

    ” If we allow cheating ”



    Vote Leave gave a wee company(Aggregate IQ) in small town Canada ( they had a 1 page web site ! ) the best part of 4 million pounds . Nobody knows what for ( Vote Leave and some people in Northern Ireland apart ) . A web page which linked Cambridge Analytica to Aggregate IQ quickly disappeared .



    Amazingly enough the current UK Government is being propped up and kept in existence by some people in Northern Ireland

  4. The guy who wrote the Paddy Power piece used to work for them. He is now freelance writer though writes a lot for Limerick newspapers, mainly League of Ireland stuff.



    Paddy Power and BetFair are related companies.

    Paisley jr calling JC a racist and anti semite.


    Has that fool no self awareness.


    Money from Tory party must be huge?





    No need to panic!



    Honestly,it’s just one of them pesky coincidences. You know,like four different organisations all “battling” to be the Official Voice of Brexit,in opposition to VoteRemain.



    One official winner,but four separate and funded campaigns fighting for one side.





    See my post about an hour ago re dirty tricks against him.

    Re cheating. Asked my 2 nephews who play pro football in Scotland if they have ever been drug tested in Scotland?


    One who was on Celtic’s books says he was tested by Celtic doc. None of them have ever heard of tests by SFA in Scotland. Mmmmm

    There are many skeletons in that hypocrite’s closet. Tory/DUP party will try to keep them hidden. Exposure before Judgement Day for him, I pray.

    I no longer read any tweet from my dad as he is subject to all sorts of abuse



    I used to check out those orcs who responded but decided to let them wallow in their own hate ridden state of perma rage



    Plus I know he loves winding the sevcovites up








    I can believe that,sadly. Thing is,Jay and his family live in one part of the UK,and spend a lot of leisure and pleasure time in another.



    You might think that one or other of the Police Services involved might investigate,no?

    TONTINE TIM, That game you talked about last night, I was there in the middle of the Jungle. Great night…



    *So was I, one of the best nights ever, and there have been many, supporting the bhoys. The place was bouncing leaving the game all the way tae Bellgrove Station.



    At High Street a hun I know and his bluesnose pal, and there’s the difference, who looked uncannily like wullie henderson got on. When he saw me his twisted face fell and I shouted out “whit happened the night” with a huge grin on my face.



    “Eff you Tontine” he shouted back “you were scheidting it until we missed the penalty”, at that the whole carriage including the wee compartments at each end burst out laughing. His wee pal, give him his due as he was quite a decent punter, told him tae shut up and dragged him away.



    Perfect end tae a perfect night as he was a real dob, one of only a few I knew.

  18. If P67 post is a hint of what is expected to come from the SFA then the game’s a bogey and I’m out unless Celtic dstand up to it by every means possible. I care not a jot about 10 ina row if this is what is coming our way.

    DD me and my mates were talking about drug testing in football the other week (we were rather drunk though) and one of them said if they done so many tests a week uk wide across all Associations there must be some footballers that have failed. Now surely if there were failures the msm would get a hold of these facts/failures ie names and clubs etc and print them.


    Or are clubs and Associations covering it up, or, are me and my mates being too cynical and maybe out of all the testing that is supposedly done weekly there is no failures… Mmmmmm

    Is there a cryptic message in your article today ?



    As they say ………



    “Is the fix in place” ?







  22. Cheating : Compare the respective stance of the Australian PM and our First Minister to proven cheating.



    It tells us everything.




  23. Attitudes to cheating, compare and contrast.



    “I am shocked and bitterly disappointed by the news from South Africa,” said Turnbull. (Australian Prime Minister)



    “It seems beyond belief the Australian cricket team have been involved in cheating. Our cricketers are role models and cricket is synonymous with fair play. How can our team be engaged in cheating like this? It beggars belief.”






    “My appeal to Rangers and HMRC is – can’t we agree on a sum. . . . . . . Because Scottish football, even Celtic, needs Rangers. . . . .allow Rangers to pay their obligations but continue as a vibrant part, not just of Scottish football,but of Scottish culture”. (Alex Salmond, then First Minister)



    Of course, one was only tax-dodging, the other was the heinous crime of ball tampering.
