Media placeholders ahead of more foreboding news


I have lost track of who each of the newspapers back in the battle over the bones of Newco.  Have the Record always been so critical of Dave King or is this a new phenomenon?  Yesterday’s piece in that ‘paper, which left responsibility for Newco’s plight at the door of chairman King, read like a placeholder ahead of more foreboding news.

You and I knew how King’s tenure would play out.  We rooted for him as he rallied fans and all pliable outlets to subvert the club into a position he would be able to buy a controlling interest. We want him to stay forever (which in a corporate sense may not be that long).

Now the future is writ so large even those previously sceptical can see it.  Towards the end of next month the Scottish Cup semi-finals will take place and season book renewal forms will arrive across the country.  A similar scenario convinced the Easdales to give up the fight three years ago; ultimately, they were pragmatic.  From what we know about King, I don’t expect a similar abdication.  He will stay until it is impossible for him to do otherwise, irrespective of the best interests of the club.

Which is a good thing.  His team is so much fun to watch.

    The Record, (& Jackson in particular) now realise that they backed the wrong horse in 2015. They are now jockeying for position as they know there is something coming down the pike.

    My last boss was a mason. He was a fud of a man who only had his job cause he knew the masonic handshake. I hate the DOB’s

    Being a Catholic doesn’t mean that you can’t be a Freemason.



    I know a few very well healed Catholics who are Freemasons.



    I find it interesting that several of them are second generation Italians.



    The Freemasons is not a sectarian organisation.


    Although I do know many Freemasons who are anti Catholic.



    The body itself isn’t bigoted ,but many of the individual members are.



    I have been asked to join a few times.


    In Fife membership is rife.



    I find the whole thing almost corrupt ,therefore I have declined any advances.




  9. Clonakilty ?

  10. Was at Firpark on Sunday and don’t know if it was just me, but did anyone else think the Celtic support was subdued, to say the least?


    For most of the second half, even the Green Brigade were almost silent, no drums or songs heard.


    Maybe it was just the Arctic cold……..

    The Masonic Lodge is rife in finance and big business in Italy. P2, a Masonic organisation, was baw deep in the collapse of Banco Ambrosiano and the death of Roberto Calvi (Gods Banker). There are also rumours that the death of Pope John Paul I was ordered by P2 because he was going to expose the financial corruption in the Vatican and Archbishop Paul Marcinkus‘ role in this.



    I read s fascinating book on it many years ago; I’ll see if I can dig out the name of the book; it’s a fantastic read and makes most thrillers seem tame in comparison.





  13. Just watched the highlights from Ibrox on saturday.



    Why do Sevco love missing sitters so much?

    .As you know, i lived in Fife.It is the place I was offered masonic handshakes more than I ever had in my hometown of Glasgow. Fife masons all lacked intelligence. You and I would destroy them in cerebal challeñge. Shower of brain dead fuds

    That is absolute quality. A very lol post indeed! ?????




  17. In my time i’ve have been on the receiving end of 2 attempts at masonic handshaking nearly burst out laughing twice at the stupidity of it all. An absolute farce both times the goats had to depart with utter embarrassment at there approach. Would make a great comedy sketch though

    1. widely accepted in Scotland as being a slang term for the female reproductive organs, it is generally used as a pejorative to describe someone who has just done something stupid, often in situations where they’ve either been impulsive or it was blindingly obvious beforehand that it was a stupid thing to do.



    3. It can also be used to describe someone who irritates everyone because they try to impress everyone all the time & invariably talk a load of pish

  20. Masons



    I knew one . Decent bloke. Passed away a few years ago.


    Kindly gent. Boring , my word he was boring. Still, a very nice gentleman. I still vividly recall him sitting down beside me in the pub. My lasting memory of that encounter was him telling me as I opened my packet of KP nuts;



    Twisty, did you know there is more protein in that packet of nuts than there is in a fillet steak?”



    I’ve never ever checked out if that is in fact true. I hope it is, cos he believed it was, and as I say he was such a nice fella that I hope he wasn’t living his life scoffing peanuts instead of steak for no reason:-)



    Aye. A mason. A good man .








    One other thing. Every other mason I’ve met has been a fud.



    Never trust those who over indulge in arcane rituality.

  21. ‘In God’s Name’ by David Yallop, a book that everyone should read.



    It details the very mysterious circumstansec surrounding the untimely death of Pope John Paul I.



    A great book.

  22. Moravcik it is and I have just purchased the updated edition on Kindle.



    I’ll be interested to see what the new evidence is in this edition.
