"Don't vote, it just encourages the bastards" -PJ O'Rourke.Scotland must be the country more than most others were politics are entwined with the beautiful game and you're right Tony it's boring as fook but we are constantly bombarded by it , nasty nicola , and "ah wiz set up" shady , sleazy dont think we believe you Salmond before her . They just have to stick their noses in ( what's left of it given most have cut them off to spite their face) to the sport for their own personal benefit
.......................You know, I'm still amazed that the season went ahead in the first place. I think most folk on here predicted that fans wouldn't be back in the ground until this year and this far they've been right. It's been an absolute mess from delays, positive test results, backdated cup ties and a quadtreble that we couldn't even celebrate. Now we have all the political shit ffs. I so wish they had held the season back until we were out of the Covid woods.
.........................When I joined the chartered institute of building I had to sign a royal charter (really) and I had to promise the following.
As a member of the institute, I shall at all times:
Act with integrity, honesty and trustworthiness.
Treat others with respect, fairness and honesty.
Discharge my duties with complete fidelity and probity.
If I get caught breaking any of those rules I get kicked out.
Can't we just keep it simple for MPs and ask them to promise not to be a cunt?
Deflection tactic Hoopy.... They don't want people focused on Null and Void.I'm entering a fucking minefield here Stevie!
What pissed me off today was the scrutiny of a photo, a photo that showed a group of players sat round the pool having a drink.
So because its a training camp you cant have a drink and a seat once the trainings done? Really is that a rule?
Maybe someone should show the yellow card to politicians, taking your family on a drive to Barnard Castle to test your eyesight during lockdown, visiting holiday homes during lockdown, travelling from London to Scotland in a train after testing positive! All slightly more serious breaches than being sat at a pool at a training camp sanctioned by said politicians. In fact give all the fuckers the red card!
Can't get into a supermarket here in Portugal without a mask. Can't even step over the doorstep of any shop... even wee ones or they will be fined 10,000 euros. Did the trick.Seen a sign outside on a high street in the news the day either in England or Wales saying something like, must wear the face mask or face (pardon the pun) a 6 grand fine , which is steep and extreme to say the least especially as people are furloughed or been made redundant in recent times or worse simply paid off. Supermarkets are not short of a few bob they can offer hand soap on entry so why not offer face masks to those who need one to enter their store and probably to buy bloody face masks grrr
I feel the same HoopyHave to say I've not really enjoyed the games this season, I enjoy the build up and the banter but with no fans, no atmosphere, the games have been a tough watch (the way we've played probably hasn't helped to be fair)
Big Jock was 50 years ahead of his time, "Football without fans is nothing"
I think politics of any kind and in particular historic has no place in football.Scotland must be the country more than most others were politics are entwined with the beautiful game and you're right Tony it's boring as fook but we are constantly bombarded by it , nasty nicola , and "ah wiz set up" shady , sleazy dont think we believe you Salmond before her . They just have to stick their noses in ( what's left of it given most have cut them off to spite their face) to the sport for their own personal benefit
