Sturgeon’s unsubstantiated innuendo against Celtic

370

Nicola Sturgeon, used her PR stage yesterday to posing a question implying Celtic were actively breaking Covid rules, which is clearly untrue.  The First Minister said:

“I have also seen some photographs, and I don’t know the full circumstances, that would raise a question in my mind about whether all the rules elite players have to follow in their bubble around social distancing are being complied with.”

This is a rhetorical device of those practised at manipulation.  Throw in an “I don’t know”, which technically negates what follows, but allows you to make any unsubstantiated allegations, even those you highly suspect to be untrue.

She has responsibility to set the rules and ensure they are monitored.  If she is unhappy with the rules she sets, she should own that responsibility.

This crisis is not a game.  Our First Minister used her position yesterday to throw unsubstantiated innuendo in the direction of Celtic.  Our political leaders need to be responsible when they make unsubstantiated comments THEY KNOW will stir up anger and resentment against a club who only hours earlier complained at not being protected from sectarian crime.  Cut the innuendo crap and find a better government that Boris Johnston’s to shadow, pretty much the entire planet is outperforming them both.

She is a clever politician who knows what she is doing and is taking us for fools.  I have no doubt how this played in the demographic she was aiming for.

    To all the Bhoys and Ghirls on here Posting about Floodlights and Celtic etc, may I remind you of what my auld Granda used to ask me many years ago, I only say ” Remind” as I have Posted this before many moons ago….

     

     

    Granda would ask me ” Wee Jimmy, how do Celtic play any games in the dark winter nights BEFORE Floodlights were invented” ?

     

    ME..” I dunno Granda, how did Celtic play etc etc ” ?

     

     

    Granda..” They would play the 2nd Half…FIRST” !

     

     

    To my Granda Bobby ( R.I.P,)….who brought me up…I always loved you and your Glesga patter.

    Not news, exactly but there is a rumour that some negative posts are likely to make an appearance on CQN.

     

     

     

    Incidentally, do you think that, even with the vaccine, we will still have at least another three Covid spikes over this year?

    Morning,

     

     

    Someone said on here last night, I can’t remember who, if the huns had went to Dubai would NS have called them out, or something like that.

     

    Well, I believe that would have depended on our lovely SMSM.

     

    NS never commented on Celtic’s trip until she was questioned by a journalist on it. If she hadn’t been questioned on it, it may never have been brought up, we’ll never know.

     

     

    ALL Celtic fans know how negative the SMSM are towards Celtic.

     

     

    Now, I think I’ll go and read the CQN latest news sections.

     

    There are always some good official links on there to The Sun, The Daily Record, Sky News etc. That will keep me informed on all things Celtic…………

     

     

    ;-)

    Apologies, seems i never replied to a post from you.

     

     

    We’re fine big yin, as i hope your family and friends are too.

     

     

    You dont have your old fitbaw bits handy, could be doing with another centre haff.

     

     

    Take care 😀

    Por Cierto,

     

     

    More quotes from the Daily Record. Have I missed the memo?!

     

     

    ;-)

    In my defence the quotes are part of the article, but at least I haven’t mentioned the publication’s name!! :))) por cierto.

  12. jimbob71 & little Miss jimbob on

    Por Cierto.

     

     

    ;))))

     

     

    Seems to be OK now to link to these rags.

     

     

    Very surprised.

    I’m not sure of where you’re taking the spikes reference from, but from what I’ve seen and read, everything now turns on keeping infection prevalence down while the vaccination programme is rolled out.

  14. JIMBOB71 & LITTLE MISS JIMBOB on 7TH JANUARY 2021 11:30 AM

     

    Por Cierto.

     

    ;))))

     

    “Seems to be OK now to link to these rags. Very surprised.”

     

     

    Aye, why give them the oxygen, or the thing that they need the most, CLICKS!! por cierto.

    `I’m not sure of where you’re taking the spikes reference from,`

     

    I am taking it from my unreliable memory !

     

     

    I thought that back at the beginning, when many were talking of ` August/September` for the Pandemic being over, you predicted , correctly, that it would be much longer and that their would be more outbreaks. I thought you predicted around five.

     

    I have found your posts on the subject more informative than the Government`s and that is why i was asking you.

     

    Keep up the good work.

     

    Going out now. I will catch any replies later.

  16. TBB……read that Unherd article yesterday evening, sobering, compelling , terrifying and heart-breaking.

    Most people are dethat the vaccine is here…… To then mention 3 possible spikes i found quite negative , so i was congratulating you on the first negative post…… My sense of humour is poor obviously.☺️
