I see the Scottish Greens have decided it is a poor decision to allow fans to congregate in pubs to watch football. Their proposal is to allow Saturday’s fixture from Celtic Park to be free to air on TV, despite, you know, all the contracts and stuff.
There is not a shred of self-awareness with the crowd. The Greens hold the balance of power in the Scottish Parliament, the SNP depend on them to pass legislation, in return for which they get nominal nods to their pet projects.
The Greens have no levers of control over TV contracts, but they exercise unique influence over the Scottish Government, whose policy it has been for months for football fans to congregate at indoor pubs instead of socially distanced and policed at open-air stadiums.
This reminds me of Life of Brian, the People’s Front were full of plans that would achieve nothing and refused to take the clear path before then. Until Brian turned up, of course. They have become a meme.
