CQN TV Saints and Sinners


Our third and final video with Scotland’s top model and TV presenter, Nicole with social media masters’ graduate, Suzie is now available.  We finish with a bit of fun, looking at the Saints and Sinners of Scottish football, including some of the main characters involved in football’s current woes, as well as one or two main characters from the champions.

12 members of the Tyneside No 1 Celtic Supporters Club will walk the West Highland Way from 31th July ro raise vital funds for MacMillan Cancer Support, HCPT and Celtic Charity Fund. The guys from Tyneside are among the most regular contributors to good causes in the name of Celtic and deserve your support. Please visit their Everyclick page.

    @thehotshot67: RT @Brybhoy76 – Make your feelings heard -Hampden 2moro 10.30am onwards #HelpSaveOurGame … < I have to agree. IF you can find an hour!!!



    Why tomorrow ? Should it not be today for the protest ?

    Paul67, you mentioned that PL is a master poker player. Fair enough.



    At some point you have to show your hand.



    It is today.



    Celtic needs to send a clear message today to the whole of Scottish Society that we will not stand idly by and allow a select few to feather their nests, bully and defraud us out of our pastime.



    Today marks an occasion of whether our game remains a ‘sport’.

    New ‘Wee green book’ excellent value for money, puts’ club12′ firmly in its place in the scheme of things.



    Sadly the wee red book is under the illusion that the Hundead are still in existence.

  4. Highland Tim on

    Morning all from a cloudy Edinburgh. Radio Shortbread brought out the Big Guns this morning. None other the ‘Sir’ Henry McLiesh, the former First Minister who resigned in disgrace for fiddling his expenses (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/1645219.stm).


    In direct contradiction of his recent report (proposing a new structure for Scottish Football and a 10 team SPL) he now thinks a top league of 16 teams would be best, and of course he thinks a company who have not provided any information that is required for SFA/SFL admission should be parachuted into SFL1. You couldn’t make this up.


    Let’s hope the SFL Chairmen have a shred more integrity than this joker, liar and cheat.

    Somebody’s having a wee go at Stewart on Twitter – below. Perhaps we should all join in?



    @StewartRegan Harper McLeod said Rangers have prima facie case to answer. WHEN? @alextomo



    @StewartRegan When does the Appellate Tribunal meet again Stewart? @alextomo



    @StewartRegan http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football … when will Rangers be penalised for dual contracts and cheating Stewart?



    @SeppBlatter @StewartRegan Gents, surely you are not going to allow a club that has cheated in domestic and Euro competitions any favours?



    @SeppBlatter @StewartRegan When will Rangers be stripped of the EBT assisted tainted titles? Justice & Integrity are our expectations

  6. No matter the outcome today , the damage was done to scottish football years and months ago . To even contemplate the game under the governance of the present hierarchy is criminal . For football in this country to survive and thrive ,it must be restructured from top to bottom , with men of integrity , with men with a genuine love of the game , with men without an agenda or favouritism towards any club , men who will rule without fear or FAVOUR . A few like men have stepped forward in the past few weeks . The punishments are there for the crimes committed ,they must be administered for all counts of rule breaking . No matter the outcome today , the next step to rescue the game in this country is to get rid of the people who have brought our game into disrepute . mostly all fellow member clubs and their fans have stood toe to toe with us on this , they have seen the corruption and injustice in full flow , can i ask that we take it a step farther and stay united until we finally oust the the perpetrators of the cause of the corruption in our game , install the men with fairness for all , and we have seen over the past couple of weeks that they are there , if we achieve this ,we will revive our game , and also see the end of the honest mistakes. the kangaroo courts , and the rfc love ins . Then next step set our combined sights on jabba and co .



    hail hail

    I think Jabba’s days are numbered, anyway. Already ole Chick has been put out to pasture, giving him more time to follow his beloved St Mirren.



    With the increasing financial pressure of falling circulation affecting the Scottish press, can they afford to staff their papers on the basis that they are covering 2 teams in Glasgow when in fact there is only one?

  8. thehuddlehound on

    Why is the Sevco application even being voted on at all? Given that both the SFA and Uefa knocked back r@ngers’ license application at the end of March, what makes Sevco suitable for a license? They’ve never played a game of football yet, possibly don’t even have a team, and definitely have far less of the required paperwork than r@ngers should have had.

  9. In which I look at the blatant tactics of three men to assist a party which is a member of no football organisation in Scotland, and which is not asking for the “help“ it is getting. I suggest that Clyde FC get it, again, spot on, and I wonder how the fact that we have a secret ballot today could affect the outcome.



    I also point out that, logically, the SFL Board cannot be in position, standing the terms of the restructuring ideas mentioned, to have reached the agreement which the resolution needs them to have reached to admit “Rangers” to SFL1. Though that will not stop them, I am sure.



    Finally, if the SFL teams stick to their guns, it would be appropriate for Messrs Doncaster, Regan and Longmuir to resign today. (But they won’t).

    Because the agenda has been directed towards this all the time.


    There was never anything less than Div3 because the focus was always on SPL/D1 instead of booting them to kingdom come.

    re Jabbs


    Particularly when the fans of the one team left hold you in such contempt




    Next to the demise of the hillbillies , the end of the LL will give me greatest pleasure

    Was Sent this early 2009??



    more info about aSWEET POISON!







    In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick.


    She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around.


    Walking was a major chore.


    It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.



    By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications.


    The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her.


    She was in so much pain, and so sick she just knew she was dying.



    She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her oldest daughter’s name, and made sure that her younger children were to be taken care of.



    She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.



    On March 19 I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn’t find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS.


    I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I asked my sister if she drank diet soda?


    She told me that she did..


    As a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack one open that moment.



    I told her not to open it, and to stop drinking the diet soda!


    I e-mailed her article my friend, a lawyer, had sent.


    My sister called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she had stopped drinking the diet soda AND she could walk!


    The muscle spasms went away. She said she didn’t feel 100% but, she sure felt a lot better.



    She told me she was going to her doctor with this article and would call me when she got home.



    Well, she called me, and said her doctor was amazed!


    He is going to call all of his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweeteners of any kind.


    In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the Aspartame in the diet soda…and literally dying a slow and miserable death.



    When she got to Florida March 22, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a pill for the Aspartame poisoning!


    She is well on her way to a complete recovery.


    And she is walking!


    No wheelchair!



    This article saved her life.


    If it says ‘SUGAR FREE’ on the label;




    I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on ‘ASPARTAME,’ marketed as ‘Nutra Sweet,’


    ‘Equal,’ and





    In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.


    It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was causing this to be rampant.


    I stood up and said that I was there to lecture on exactly that subject.


    I will explain why Aspartame is so dangerous:


    When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis.. Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.


    The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.



    Many people were being diagnosed in error.


    Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is!



    Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.



    The victim usually does not know that the Aspartame is the culprit.


    He or she continues its use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition.


    We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas.



    In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We’ve seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly.



    This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.


    During a lecture, I said,


    ‘If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs,












    Joint pain,


    Unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!’


    People were jumping up during the lecture saying,


    ‘I have some of these symptoms..


    Is it reversible?’









    STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame on food labels!


    Many products are fortified with it!


    This is a serious problem.


    Dr. Espart (one of my speakers) remarked that so many people seem to be symptomatic for MS and during his recent visit to a hospice; a nurse stated that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence!



    Diet soda is NOT a diet product! It is a chemically altered, multiple SODIUM (salt) and ASPARTAME containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates.



    It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight!



    These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.


    Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily to preserve ’tissue specimens.’



    Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we SHOULD NOT store it IN our body!



    Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the ‘diet products’ and with no significant increase in exercise; his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.



    Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics.


    We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame.


    The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control.


    Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.



    Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE.


    Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage,






    Manic depression,


    Panic attacks,


    Uncontrollable anger and rage.



    Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well.


    Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet.



    So called ‘behavior modification prescription drugs’ (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed.


    Truth be told, they were never NEEDED in the first place!



    Most of these children were being ‘poisoned’ on a daily basis with the very foods that were ‘better for them than sugar.’



    It is also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands of pallets ofdiet Coke and diet Pepsiconsumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.



    Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects, i.e. mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy.


    Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners.



    There are many different case histories to relate of children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison.’



    Herein lies the problem:


    There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included in 100 different products and strong objection was made concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done.


    The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.



    Sadly, MONSANTO’S patent on Aspartame has EXPIRED!


    There are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced.


    Everybody wants a ‘piece of the Aspartame pie.’



    I assure you that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it is.



    And isn’t it ironic that MONSANTO funds, among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians?



    This has been recently exposed in the New York Times.


    These [organizations] cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products.



    Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants.



    The bill would also institute independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms.



    The bill was killed.



    It is known that the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you’re informed now!

    I probably have a fourth- tier grade addiction to diet coke, probably explains a lot

    Cheers for that mate, I always like to keep an open mind when I read something like that and usually do a wee search on the web to see if there is any truth in it, or whether it is mere myth.



    There seems to be a large body of opinion that says it is myth, but who’s to say they’re right.



    There are so many people out there posting on the web who think only one gunman killed JFK when all the evidence points to the contrary.

    Anything less than an application of the rules will be definitive proof that Scottish fitba is nothing more than an Orange Walk with a ball…



    Do you want a sport or a pantomime ? Do you want to continue to coexist with cheats? Do you wish to continue with something managed /administered by the likes of Regan / Doncaster / Ogilvie ?

    Kit- ‘Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is! ‘



    – many more people die in the UK [ as you may know Scotland has the highest incidence of MS in the World] of MS than of ‘methanol poisoning’



    So while it is true that many patients with MS live fairly normal lives the bald statement that MS is ‘not a death sentence’ is quite frankly, bollocks.



    Life is complicated.
