VB Statement On North Lanarkshire Council Flag Shame

Written by: Admin
Friday, 12th February 2016

It is with both astonishment and anger that Vanguardbears hear of a proposal from North Lanarkshire Council to fly the Southern Irish tricolour over its council offices on the 24th of April 2016 to commemorate the failed Irish Republican Easter uprising right here on British soil.

The request from pro-Republican IRA terror group, Cairde na hÉireann, to fly a flag that history states was not borne into inception until 1921, is nothing but sinister anti-British propaganda. As recently as 11th September 2015 this group had its main office in Glasgow raided and members charged under Section 13 of the Terrorism Act.

NLC should be very careful and aware of the anger currently sweeping Scotland, after an SNP-led pact swung this vote to an 8-6 majority in favour of the flag to be flown in the UK. At a time when Britain, indeed most of Europe and their fellow countrymen were dying in the trenches halting the German jackboot, these rebellious cowards staged their rising - yet elected councillors in Scotland want to commemorate it! The flag that was prevalent and flew over Dublin on the day of that cowardly attack was the Union flag, so if NLC are to consider raising any flag then it should be the Union Flag.

Vanguardbears will oppose this action by NLC in the strongest manner available to us and within the realms of the law, but if this proposal gets passed by higher authority, the 24th April will see a gathering like no other to vehemently oppose this despicable action by councillors who are clearly sinisterly motivated by sanctioning it.

We will defend our rights and traditions as citizens of the United Kingdom, unlike the current Scottish Government who seem hell-bent in eradicating it.

No Surrender.

Friends Of Phil

Since the sacking by The Herald newspaper of journalist Graham Spiers and blogger Angela Haggerty (after only eight weeks in her first real job – the CV is looking good Angie!), a plethora of previously unheard of amateur social commentators have appeared to voice their one-sided and misguided opinions.

More often than not, a quick Google search uncovers that these slanted and often dishonest souls are part of the diminishing group “The Friends of Phil” (Phil of course being the “tarred with a sickening sectarian brush” blogger Phil What-ever-his-latest-name-is).

Most recent to jump aboard the meandering three-wheeled Phil-wagon is one Robin Smith, or as he has re-branded himself Bob Smith-Walker (what is it with the Celtic-Minded and changing their names?). Use of the aforementioned Google reveals Mr. Smith-Walker to be the publisher of Celtic-supporter Phil’s literary flop “Downfall”, a low-sales book about eh.... Rangers. The hilarious tome is best summed up by reproducing The Scotsman newspapers review:

Rangers And Me

Written by: Beanie
Sunday, 7th February 2016

Let’s rewind to 1992, I got my first ever Rangers top (still got it!) it was our home top from 1992 – 1994, now to be honest I don’t know why I wanted one or even remember asking for it! Why would I? I was a 10-year-old girl who loved playing with her Barbies, maybe it was because my big sister had football tops and I thought I was missing out or maybe I realised I actually liked football.  I can’t say that I was influenced by my dad or sister as to which team I was supposed to support, I say supposed as let’s be honest, I don’t think I would have been allowed to support Celtic – I’m 100% positive here that my dad would say “You could have supported whatever team you wanted” but I know had I said any other team other than Rangers, he would have been a little disheartened.  You could say Rangers were my first love and it’s a love affair that will never end!

Rangers Director withdraws business from The Herald

Vanguard Bears understands that Parks Motor Group has withdrawn £40,000 worth of advertising revenue from The Herald newspaper due to persistent and unwarranted attacks on the Club by its article writers.

Only last week, a Rangers Director voiced Club concerns regarding biased reporting with Herald Editor Magnus Llewellin.

These concerns were totally ignored, and Friday past saw a deliberately inflammatory article with the headline “Crooks at Rangers” appear in the aforesaid newspaper.
