It Is Good News Week

Written by: John McCrae
Sunday, 29th November 2015

Not even the most ardent pop trivia fanatic would recognise the names Mick Tinsley, John Stewart, Alan Laud, Ray Honeybull and Leslie Dash, I suspect. Collectively, these five RAF personnel, were members of shortly-lived pop band Hedgehoppers Anonymous. This outfit made only five records, the most famous of which was called 'It's Good News Week', which made it to number 5 in 1965.

This week, normally sycophantic newspapers, television and radio struggled to write copy which would deflect from Celtic's latest European humiliation. A humiliation which saw them eliminated from playing with decent teams for another year, although the management team insist they will do better next time. Just like they said last year! This year, again, they were turfed out the qualifying rounds prior to the Champions League proper commencing. Admittedly, they started well with an aggregate 6-1 victory against Iceland's Stjarnan, before scraping a 1-0 against Qarabag of Azerbaijan over two legs. In the play-off round, Celtic came up against a team that folk had actually heard of, Malmo of Sweden, and were beaten. Put down, as some say they should be collectively, to the Europa League, they have been humiliated, yet again, in Europe by taking only two, yes two, points from a possible fifteen in what is, remember, the second tier European competition. If only Ronnie had played marquee signing Carlton Cole.

Criminally Racist Scum

Many thanks to the Celtic Chairman Ian Bankier for confirming what we all know already; supporters of Celtic are vile “criminally racist” scum. At least he had the decency to admit it, following revelations that Celtic Director Ian Livingston had been forced to go public regards the anti-semitic filth he’d had to endure at the hands of The Bheast.

The quotes are there for all to see; Celtic fan Michael Higgins said:

"Get this Ashkenazi cunt out of OUR club and take that other fake jew prick Biton (sic) with him. This is typical of their sort, infiltrating and destroying every country and establisment (sic) from within".

Another reptile, Ross Grant replied “He’s a Jew what do you expect”.

Supporting The Twaddell Peace Camp

A deputation of Vanguard Bears visited Ulster at the weekend to present a £600 donation to the residents of the Twaddell Peace camp for its continued upkeep.

The loyal people of Ulster are always in our thoughts, and all at VB hope that the respective Orangemen and Bandsmen are eventually permitted to complete their Twelfth July 2013 parade, walking their traditional route past Ardoyne shops.

Talk Is Cheap, But It Can Set An Agenda

Written by: NathanRobert86
Monday, 16th November 2015

I see the word cheat casually bandied about in the context of Rangers often these days. Talk is of what Rangers cheated Scottish football out of, and how they did it.

No mention at all of whether it is correct to use such a serious term before the final verdict is in, or all of the evidence is presented.

Not that the legal process or evidence matter to these people, however, as it is impossible to see how Rangers cheated Scottish football using a scheme which:

Moral Hypocrisy And Press-Gang Justice

Written by: NathanRobert86
Wednesday, 11th November 2015

This week has seen an explosion of moral hypocrisy in Scottish football; a moral hypocrisy which sadly has become rather common place in the last five or so years.  The catalyst for the latest explosion was HMRC winning its appeal against oldco.  Predictably, this ruling has brought fresh calls from various media pundits and high-profile fans to strip Rangers of titles won during years in which EBT’s were used.

The call for title stripping is both morally and legally absurd, and is supported by the weakest of arguments. On the legal side, nothing in the latest appeal had any bearing upon previous rulings regarding sporting advantage, as anyone who has kept up with the facts and doesn’t have a pre-established agenda against the club will admit. The moral argument is also completely flawed, as I will show here.
