The attempt to silence free speech by “Rangers Stakeholders” has backfired in spectacular fashion.
The attempt to “gag” Phil Mac Giolla Bhain by these so-called “stakeholders” has only served to highlight the desperate lengths that these people will go to try and silence the truth about the dire straits that RFC find themselves in.
These people are so hell bent on keeping the truth from RFC season ticket holders that they will stoop to the lowest levels possible to silence anyone who gives a true representation of the perilous state that RFC now find themselves in. Despite Mr Whyte’s assurances that 99% of these stories are crap.
If the articles by Phil and Rangers Tax Case are 99% crap why then have HMRC ring fenced millions of pounds of RFC’s money ?
The Irony of this pathetic attempt to choke the truth is that instead of silencing Phil they actually generated tens of thousands of web searches for http://www.philmacgiollabhain.com because the site was down for 24 hours.
Now even more people will read the articles that Phil has printed regarding RFC’s Tax case over the past year and a bit.
The main problem for the “Stakeholders” is that they don’t understand how communities on the internet react when someone tries to censor a journalist or blogger that they believe is exposing the truth.
Within hours of the site going down Phil was able to post a blog on TCN like any other partner he has the facility to publish on TCN at anytime. Shortly after he released another article on Scotzine. I also know that Phil was offered server space and other temporary solutions by several Celtic fan sites. I am happy to say that he is back up and running thanks to the guys at Celtic Minded.
The truth is you cannot silence the Celtic family or the truth anymore. If you try to take one fans media outlet down we will always have an alternative platform to air our views.
BBC Scotland and other media outlets are now increasingly dancing to a new tune. The tune of the truth.
We have moved into a new age where Celtic fans online media cannot be gagged or silenced anymore. The last 48 hrs proved that.
