    It seems that every step in the downfall of the huns and in the exposure of the corruption involved has been a result of the involvement of parties from out with Scotland.

     

     

    I don’t think that’s a coincidence.

     

     

    I’d suggest it offers an insight into an aspect of the nature of Scottish society, and to how things here differ from England.

     

     

    Not necessarily in a good way.

    We were the single most important party involved in them dying. They died chasing us.

    Well that’s a bit of a stretch.

     

     

    I just hope for TGD’s sake it doesn’t occur to him. He’d be heartbroken.

     

     

    The fact is, and deep down we all know this, even though some would rather bathe in their own vomit than admit it, that if it hadn’t been for the involvement of non Scottish based organisations they wouldn’t have gone out of business, however financially reckless they had been in trying to catch up.

    HEAR HEAR!

     

     

    .. and every penny of Furlough Scheme which kept Scottish families solvent, saved hundreds of thousands of Scottish jobs & thousands of Scottish businesses, came from outwith Scotland too – because Scotland’s deficit now stands at c15% of GDP. But the SNP cult NEVER acknowledge

     

     

    To paraphrase Einstein….no it’s not about ‘smart-meters’

     

     

    “A SNPcult politician is a mimosa when she/he himself has made a mistake(too many to list), and a roaring-lion when she/he discovers a mistake of others”. Their supporters are angry goldfish….but with much shorter memories!

    Perception is a funny thing.

     

     

     

    Always seems to me that, when Hearts lose to Celtic Neilson is spitting feathers

     

     

     

    Yet when they lose to Sevco he is resigned and indifferent.

     

     

     

    Funny thing perceptions

     

     

     

    🤔

    To be fair, he was red carded in their last march at Ibrox and didn’t he receive a yellow yesterday or was it just a warning.

    Well that’s a bit of a stretch.

     

     

    Not in the slightest

     

     

    Lloyds had control over them at the end because they were so heavily indebted to them. Lloyds would have sacked the Rangers board if they blocked the sale to White.

     

     

    The debt and the liability from the EBTs did for them, it was all because they couldn’t keep up with us on and off the pitch without them

  8. As Mark Twain wrote, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” , por cierto

  9. You could argue, although I don’t agree, that it was an unintended consequence of how the club was run at the time

     

     

    You can’t argue that trying to keep up with us wasn’t the single biggest factor in them going bust

  10. The experience of being in the Army changed my whole life; I never believed that an organization such as ours could ever go to war, leave alone win it. It was, as Yeats remarked of the Easter Rising, ‘A terrible beauty.

    Their relationship with their bankers was a lot more convivial and accommodating before oversight and control moved to England.

     

     

    Their downfall came from the evidence uncovered in the raid by the City of London Police. Without that the EBT case wouldn’t have happened.

     

     

    Saying that Celtic caused their downfall is like saying that football, or the corporate taxation regime, or capitalist competition caused their downfall. It’s just a vague and unfocussed generality. It was part of the background, and provides context, but it wasn’t the cause, proximate or ultimate.
