Gutter Life

281

Newco’s narcotic-type dependency on ever-more-creative PR was illustrated on BBC Radio Scotland last night by Michael Stewart, who highlighted ludicrously false attempted murder stories fed to the newspapers, followed by rushed and selectively edited TV interviews when the truth became apparent.

Meanwhile, every other football club in Scotland goes about their business, where PR prepare information ahead of games, like any normal entity.

On this occasion, two Celtic season ticket holders (quite rightly) reported to the police an incident, observed only by a handful of Celtic fans, by another fan at last month’s defeat.

Celtic fans’ abhorrence of intolerance is commendable, we hold ourselves to a higher standard.  The club cannot cut across this with denials or deflections. Others have exploited that police report shamelessly, but that is Gutter Life.

  3. Cant remember McIntyre apologising after the abuse he firedcat NL during his first spell as manager.

     

     

    Horrible person.

     

     

    BBC standards my erse.

     

     

    Have they apologised for the ‘takin the piss’ blip on Sunday ?.

  4. So the beeb are making it clear tonight that the bad man ‘michael stewart’ is nothing to do with them and offer a full apology for his opinion on last nights program.

     

    Meanwhile the beeb are also underlining the’ fact ‘ that Leigh Griffiths is a coward and cheat who deliberately stamps on his opposing player whilst lying on the ground……..it is incredible that he is getting away with it.

  5. AOW

     

    I have always found that these individuals get immediately muted by rapidly thrusting your forehead and connecting with the bridge of their noses.

     

    It could however give your HR Dept. additional work.

    Glad to hear the government are considering not prosecuting anyone who does not pay the BBC licence fee. Hopefully it leads to a massive reduction in their funding and the closure of BBC Scotland Sports department. An disgrace of a publicly-funded regional operator that deserves nothing but contempt.

     

     

    ———-

     

     

    If it goes through the BBC is finished. Personally i will cancel my TV licence the minute the threat of prosecution is removed.

  7. They can’t prosecute [bbc license] if they can’t get in.

     

     

    Havent paid it in the six years since the wife left.

     

     

    Never will again…

     

     

    I think if you take a few steps back from all of this the problem lies in the fracture of the dream of 55 titles in may…..these past 5 days have seen a few wake up from the fact that unicorns do not exist….the reality for them is that scott brown will be lifting the big trophy again in may for the 9th year running..it its making a few in the scottish media physically sick and very angry.

  8. I suppose the question has to be ‘who provided the subtitles for the Morelos video, and what was their agenda?’

     

     

    (actually two questions)

    Appreciate this may be seen as a parochial view but why on earth would we want to pay for a national broadcaster that is utterly unbalanced, anti-Celtic and often the source of lies against our fans and the club??

     

     

    Feck them. I’m happy if it all falls apart.

  10. Maybe instead of abolishing the licence fee the BBC should just abolish their Scottish based football coverage.

    Agree with that – they are hurting big time since the weekend. However, their attacks on Celtic fans, players and the Club have been there a long time. They only employ ex-huns as pundits!

     

     

    Good on you for not paying. They’ve had their last penny from me.

  12. Always was in favour of the license fee. Would still be happy to pay it, if BbC Scotland’s sports department was abolished. Detestation has turned to despising after their treatment of one of the few pundits who tells it as he sees it.

     

     

    As for Sky, words fail me…Beyond despicable.

  13. Lazydynamite the BBC is crap & according to Hindu philosophy in their next life

     

    they will all be in a Hellish Planet for pinning unecessary hardship Tax on us

     

    unfortunate British Citizens in other words they bring unnecessary financial

     

    hardship they are robbers who are backed by the corrupt ffs see in Spain or

     

    any other European Country the people there who have TV’s do not pay for

     

    TV License nor are they demanded to do so its (The TV License) a Scam

    ——————————

     

     

    Someone needs to come up with a purpose for the BBC. Maybe from that point they can justify why everyone needs to pay whether they watch or not – but I can’t imagine what that might be. The licence fee is just another tax.

     

     

    However – they could start with abolishing their Scottish football crap. They could also get rid of a ot of the Scottish programming – it’s mostly shite or a repetition of what’s already been in the main channel. Even the news is shit – I listened to the main new programme on radio yesterday and one of the main stories was about a minor car accident in the middle of nowhere. WTF??!

     

     

    Have you watched “The Nine”? It gets about 30k viewers and is utter low quality drivel.

    Celtic need to ascertain which Sky sports person decided to pursue Morelis and sanction the interview.

     

     

    Also, who did they speak to at Sevco to get permission and who translated the Qs and As

     

     

    If it’s a Sky employee , it should be a sacking offence . Of course , Jim Traynor is not a Sky employee.

    As soon as we drop points we’ll be back to the football

    Perhaps the BBC can explain why it’s wrong not to pay your licence fee but it’s OK to employ a number of people who have defrauded HMRC of hundreds of thousands of pounds.

    THOUGHTFUL Inverclyde football star Greg Taylor said it’s a ‘massive honour’ to be named as Ardgowan Hospice’s new ambassador.

     

     

    The caring 22-year-old from Gourock, who plays for both Scotland and Celtic, visited the facility to reveal the news and spend some time with patients.

     

     

    Greg, a former Clydeview Academy pupil, said: “It’s a massive honour.

     

     

    “When they asked me to be an ambassador I was really taken aback, I didn’t expect it but I’m more than happy to take on the role.

     

     

    “I think anyone you speak to is grateful for the care that the hospice provides – it’s a special place.

     

     

     

    “The work they do is great, especially the volunteers and the people who offer their spare time.”

     

     

    Hospice patients Tommy McGhee, 55, and Gordon Brown, 69, were thrilled to meet Greg during his visit.

     

     

    Tommy, from Greenock, said: “It’s brilliant to see someone like Greg take up the role.”

     

     

    Gordon, who hails from Gibshill in Greenock and now lives in Port Glasgow, said: “It’s fantastic as Greg is a local boy who has made good.

     

     

    “The hospice is a great place, all the staff, from the cleaners right through to the doctors, all take the time to speak to you.

     

     

    “They are absolutely brilliant, every one of them.”

     

     

    Greg says his nanny Rose, mum Fiona, dad Hugh and younger brother Ally, 18, who plays for Kilmarnock Football Club, are all big hospice supporters.

     

     

    He said: “My mum has done a few 10ks for the hospice and my nanny has always been a hospice supporter through her bingo group.”

     

     

    Greg hopes to attend the Ardgowan Hospice Ball on March 7.

     

     

    In his role as hospice ambassador, Greg will also be leading the Active for Ardgowan campaign to encourage people to raise money by taking on sporting challenges.

     

     

    Linda Kelly, head of corporate development at the hospice, says they are grateful to Greg for his support.

    She said: “We are delighted to welcome him on board.

     

     

    “He’s been really positive in supporting the hospice and he’ll bring a fresh perspective.”

    similar for me bud.

     

    wife ran away with my best mate.

     

     

    even now all these years later i still miss him

  21. I expect many more gutter shite stories to emanate from Ibrox while they think they have a chance of stopping 9 in a row.

  22. The BBC took a good kicking for their coverage of the General Election, some of which was deserved, and the dumbing down of their radio stations and their website does my head in, but in my opinion the UK would be a far worse place to live in if we didn’t have their news department offering something other than commercially driven output.

     

     

    Doesn’t this whole episode tell us exactly that?

    I beg to differ. The bbc is the most successful and longstanding tool of state propaganda the world has ever has ever seen….and in the early days, heard.

     

     

    Outlived its nazi and soviet counterparts. And so much more subtle than Fox. ‘The world’s most trusted news source….’ according to the bbc!

     

     

    And we’ve had the pleasure and obligation of paying for it. Not even Judith the Weather can make up for that!

  24. On a societal level the universality of the licence fee is probably a good thing being a cohesive factor. That’s why people on the right of politics hate it so much. Bit like postage stamps.

    It’s not without its faults, but still far better than the commercial alternatives.
