In defence of Phil Mac Giolla Bhain and Free Speech

I’ll start off with saying that I personally think it was a gross misjudgement by Phil’s publishing company in picking the vile Sun to serialise his book. Maybe they never understood the power of Ra Peepil in being able to censor the truth.There is no way I would have bought that rag to read the serialisation of Phils Upcoming book. On the other hand if you want your book serialised to the masses what is the alternative? The Record? or other Laptop loyal publications and I include the Herald, Scotsman and Evening Times in this group.

Now I’ll give a brief sketch of the Phil Mac Giolla Bhain that I know. As you all know I suffer from depression. The guy took time out of writing his book to help me and give my wife support when I went through a dark time. I have met Phil and spoke to him over the past year and a half, he enjoys a good talk and has very forceful views on things. I don’t alway’s agree with but he is a and passionate guy.

So that’s that out of the road and now we get to the fundamental problem with Phil’s work. He has had the audacity to unmasked the pantomime that was Rangers FC the biggest cheats in the history of Scottish football. The evidence is there the EBT scandal, second contracts, non payment of PAYE and VAT.That dead club was rotten to the core, they were cheating and got found out and exposed by Phil Mac Giolla Bhain over the past two years and on top of that would the Famine song be demeaned illegal if it was not for Phil’s persistence ?

The truth is despite our club fighting tooth and nail against a corrupt Football association and the idiots who run the SPL in pursute of profit over excellence we are still  muted by a press that is shit scared of alienating the hate mongers in our ‘New Scotland’ society. Namely the Ultra Protestant Unionist Rangers support.

That club is dead but the Zombi element still folow,follow.The death trheats continue against anyone who tells the truth about their disgraced club. Even the guy from a pond life paper is now in fear of his life for convincing his editor that Phil’s book was worth serialising.You can add Alex Thompson of Channel 4 along with Phil, his family and Neil Lennon to the list of people who live life under the threat of death and for what? Speaking the truth about a corrupt football club and it’s vile support or simply being the manager of a football club.

It is now the time for Celtic fans to put their differences about  Phil Mac Giolla Bhain to one side and realise that our club and those who expose corruption in the Scottish game are being bullied by a shower of idiots who are still fighting a battle from 1690 and a press pack who are shit scared to upset them.

To hell with the lot of them.Stop buying their rags and visiting their sites there are plenty of great Celtic and football bloggers/Podcasters out there to get your news from. If they want to live in the shadow of a victory the Vatican paid for over 300 years ago then leave them there.

The Sun’s decision no matter what lame excuse they give is an affront to free speech and democracy.

Justice for the 96 and justice for the truth

  5. Well said JasCam. But I wouldn’t boycott or ignore anything printed or published online – we need to keep on highlighting the lies being told – isn’t that what Phil Mac is all about?

    Keep on picking them up on it – if you ignore them they won’t just go away. Show the hatred they spew to as many people as possible I say. Give em enough rope etc…

  7. I used to read the sun/record/star etc… And got fed up reading lies so tried lots of other papers before settling with the herald which I believe to be impartial and a good read. Can you please tell me why you group this paper with these other tabloid rags? I’m just Intrested in your opinion as I to was fed up with the lies and anti-Celtic views but find the herald a good read, also do you have any recommendations for my daily read bearing in mind I don’t have Internet access at work. Cheers.

  9. Well, Celtic (and other) supporters are forever complaining about the biased Scottish media (and have been, in most cases, proved correct); yet they still continually buy these papers.
    Maybe, if in future they feel the need to give the owners of these dreadful rags their money, Maybe they should throw their club’s scarves in the bin. As pointed out in this article, there are many better places now to get honest and reliable information.

  11. I am waiting for my copy of this book to arrive. I hope all Football supporters not just Celtic Supporters buy this book and find out what really happened. Hope its a best seller, I will be advising all my friends and family to buy it. Good luck to Phil and I’m pleased you are getting better James!!
