Politicians – Just can't do enough

Only 6 days ago I wrote a blog on this very site describing the comments made by Herr Salmond (SNP) and David Cameron (Conservative & Unionist Party) regarding the fiasco going on over at Comedy Central.

At that time I felt the comments and words of solidarity and support were over the top considering these individuals were supporting an organisation which were doing everything in their power to cheat their way to the top, whilst being “possibly” involved in fraud of massive proportions.
This would be the same organisation who have the proud history of being THE most sectarian football club to have been created, a history that as shown again on Saturday, this organisations supporters would be more than happy returning to and despise those who forced them to step away from in the football arena.
Since even last Tuesday, the amount of investigations which have been kick started are so numerous it’s hard to keep track of who is and isn’t investigating them. I keep expecting the Scooby Doo team to turn up next in their Mystery Machine to investigate the spooky goings on at Comedy Central.
After more than a week of revelations you would think politicians would know better than to back what everyone else can see is a losing horse…..but no, they just can’t do enough for them.
Today a meeting of politicians and administrators from the firm of Duff and Phelps will try and work out a strategy to pressurise HMRC into entering into an agreement which would ensure survival for the fraudsters. These politicians have another name, The Westminster Rangers Supporters Club.
The members of this club include Gregory Campbell (Democratic Unionist Party), Ian Davidson , Glasgow South West MP  (Labour) and John Robertson, Glasgow North West MP ( Labour).
Now my concerns are nothing to do with the fact these Honourable Gentleman are fans of Scotland’s Shame but the fact that they seem totally oblivious to what is morally correct and also seem desperate to save an organisation which encourages dodging their taxes.
As well as that there are many concerns over what UEFA will make of this interference, and the complications of European football for the coming years for Scottish teams.
No doubt all will be revealed on what was discussed today, another revelation I personally can’t wait to hear about.

  1. Vatican in shock bid to buy Glasgow Rangers!
    Unconfirmed reports reaching the press wires are that the Holy See has launched an audacious bid to purchase the entire shareholding of Glasgow Rangers.
    The administrators Duff and Phelps would neither confirm nor deny that the Vatican had tabled a bid but they did confirm that due diligence was being carried out by the Jesuits and they were examining the school jotters and various Post It notes inherited by Duff and Phelps at Ibrox Park that constitutes the financial accounts of the club.
    It appears that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI has always been a big fan of the ’Gers. This possibly dates back to his time as a soldier in the German anti-aircraft corps towards the end of the Second World War. Sources close to Benedict say that His Holiness is an avid collector of Hun memorabilia, and in particular the sombrero worn by Barry Ferguson during their championship winning celebrations in 2003 takes pride of place in his downstairs loo.
    It is widely known it was the Vatican that funded King William of Orange’s army when they came to the nation’s rescue to depose the corrupt Catholic King James. Pope Benedict was reminded of this connection very recently when watching the pageantry of last summer’s Orange Walks. The stirring music but ungainly, slightly dysfunctional marching was a source for concern. The sight of so many Rangers jerseys stretched over distended stomachs brought a tear to his eye as it reminded him of the poverty and deprivation that prevails in the world today. “My work is not done,” he was heard to whisper.
    Many loyal Rangers fans will be concerned at this turn of events. “It’s a nightmare scenario for the Billy Boys,” said one worthy. “This is what happens when our great club signed people like Mo Johnson and Arteta. But we will remain loyal. We don’t do walking away.”
    It has been rumoured that Father Alistair McCoist, [no known relation], brokered the deal when it was discovered that the biscuit tin was emptied by the club’s chairman Craig Whyte to pay for his cab as he fled to the airport. This confidential information came to him from a Catholic mole within the club.
    Father McCoist has said that inevitably there will have to be changes at the club. Murray Park will be sold off to the Glasgow Archdiocese and turned into an underground basilica. “I know that many supporters will be alarmed at them losing this training facility but we are discussing with Glasgow Celtic the possibility of sharing their training ground. There is really no need for a part-time football club to have such an expensive overhead. It is much better being put to use for missionary purposes,’ he went on to say.
    A well-known First Minister of Scotland [who will remain anonymous. Nothing new there] has quietly welcomed this development as he believes that there is over one trillion pounds worth of assets still to be realised in the Vatican. “This will be good news for the fabric and social infrastructure of Scotland. I’ve always been partial to a Chasuble and enjoy a good hearty Hymn.”
    Where this will leave the team on the other side of the city? Not surprisingly they are remaining tight lipped on the matter. The Daily Rangers has said: “The question has never been could Celtic survive and prosper without Rangers but whether they could prosper with another Catholic Club on their doorstep.”
