THE END OF THE ROAD – by Pensionerbhoy

There must be many today who feel we have reached the end of the road with regard to the behaviour of football fans.  For quite some time now there have been ongoing controversies surrounding Celtic supporters, the singing of “patriotic” songs and the display of distasteful or inappropriate banners.  The Green Brigade has been the […]

Since when do you need a songbook as a moral compass ?

If some thing is wrong then it is wrong. We humans are gifted with common history, intelligence and a thing called gut feeling to help us form moral judgments.

No rambling posts, a good community platform and messages are short and sweet allowing for better interactions between users.

We picked up a tweet by @FACKilltheBill today which contained a link to an article on the Scottish Law Reporter blog. It appears that the statistics for sectarian attacks in Scotland since 2003 have been destroyed by the Crown office.
