So there was a football match today and the queen will not be pleased with the result. Eh, Murdo?

 

But before the match, some people wanted to have a wee march…

!!!!
The logo suggests that someone is going to be kicking someone else (wearing and green and white top) in the face. Why is dark coloured clothing preferred? Wear Black Shirts?

I think they were trying to get red white and blue smoke, but well, FAIL.
af6
He looks a happy wee old mannie who obviously didn’t have anything in fashionable black…
af2
Oh, they found the blue canister, and they’ve managed to get some orange in there too.  (Arlene will be pleased.) And the guy with the red hoodie, either can’t read or he’s a wee rebel… Red, the new black?
af7
I’m sure all that smoke is doing wonders for their lungs. Like we cared.

 

I wonder who the red card was for… I just saw a tweet from Stuart Campbell:

Swear to God I’ve never seen a linesman do that before. They have a quiet word in the ref’s ear, they don’t howl “RED CARD!” repeatedly.

 

So, at a guess, it was for a Celtic player.

 

af11
What that you’re saying, mate? Can’t quite make it out.

The younger ones have more extensive wardrobes. They can lay their hands on a little black number with ease.

What a lot of black balaclavas. It’s almost as if someone provided them, so they’d all look the same. And what’s that salute?

 

!!
What an utter insult to BEARS. And what’s 10 years? Prison?

 

In the end, the match resulted in a 3-2 defeat for the queen’s eleven, despite Celtic being down a man. Oh well… Clearly, you can’t win them all.

  1. Scotland’s Shame. Back to the future – 1690, that is. What a bunch of retarded clowns. I have absolutely zero interest in football – and neither have they. Generally speaking, it’s a game played by thick numpties in front of thousands of thick numpties. “The beautiful game” – Gie’s a break, pal! The serious – and sad – side of this is that there are people (I use the term extremely loosely) for whom this bigoted sectarian bile is their raison d’etre. Frankly, I’d have been delighted if some of their flares had given them 3rd degree burns. “Red, white and blue – what does it mean to you?” I guess it means the animals are out of the zoo. I’ve argued with “supporters” who say, “But I don’t hold with that sectarian stuff – I’m just go for the football”. My answer – “Bollocks – if you consort with them, you condone them and that makes you as bad as them.” A final point – why do they all look like feral monkeys? Sorry, I take that back – it’s a gross insult to monkeys.

        Whether it is on the basis of nationality, religion, colour, or any of the various things that eejits get bent out of shape about…

        But I think we can safely say that people who are drawn to an organisation whose logo depicts an opposition team’s fan/player being kicked about the head, are definitely tarrable with a relatively broad brush of stupidity/sectarianism.

          1. Agreed.

            My worry is that James Kelly and his friends in all the other parties, seem to think that the way to deal with this is to get rid of legislation preventing it.

            I understand (although I don’t know) that the legislation is not perfect… but what legislation is? People still speed; people still talk on the phone in their cars; people still allow their dogs to foul pavements despite there being laws to prevent it. But, I think we can’t abandon laws because some people don’t adhere to them. We should improve them.

            I’m certainly not blaming Rangers’ fans en masse. As you say, most of them are decent people who will abhor this.

            My finger is pointing at parliament.

            The Lord Advocate told the police that they can’t use the football act in view of the fact that it is on its way to repeal.

            It’s up to Kelly to find an alternative … With his esteemed intellect I’m sure that will present no problem.

  5. It isn’t worse than it used to be, I hope – speaking as a former Weegie – I keep hoping that something will happen to drag those fuckers kicking and screaming into the 18th century so they can absorb a wee bit of Scottish Englightenment.

    If this UB07 – well, I knew that UB40 were named after an unemployment benefit form, but UB07 – Unionist Bastards, Ludge 07? Unwashed Bawbags? Unholy Bigots?

    Can we not round them up and put them on a plantation somewhere? Oh … wait a minute…

    In somewhat better news, I read in the past few days that the unspeakable Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen of Britain First both got sent down for religiously aggravated harassment which they committed in Norniron last year.

    I notice, though, that the offensive behaviour at football matches Act, or whatever it was called, was struck down by a coalition of the various wings of the ESSEMPEEBAD party, I think just because it was an SNP thing and they would prefer to be able to scream ESSEMPEEBAD and squawk about denying people the right to free speech, and disregard the fact that it was a very popular piece of legislation …

    Which brings me back to my first point. Killing the that football-related offensive behaviour legislation has led to the knuckle-draggers feeling empowered, that the authorities are on their side – in the same way that the moment there is a change in government and the racist right get in and start sounding off about “immigrants”, even absent any changes in legislation or regulations, all the knuckle-draggers among the public and all the little Hitlers and Hitleresses who have any power or authority at all over anyone else feel empowered and start doing their damnedest to make life as hellish as possible for the rest of us.

The poor the disaffected, the ones looking to blame someone for their shitty lives but too stupid or lazy to get off their arses and find out who the real culprits are. Whose scapegoats are readily provided by the state to divert attention away from it. Immigrants, Muslims, anyone a bit diferrent from them that the tabloids have decided not to like that week.

    2. Re mobs – we don’ t need to go back as far as the Rome of Antiquity, where the supporters of the four chariot-racing teams – the reds, the whites, the greens and the blues – used to have rival mobs of supporters that functioned as a kind of hybridization or miscegenation between supporters’ clubs, political parties and criminal enterprises, with the additional sauce of rich patrons buying their political support and calling on them to double up as rent-a-mobs. There were of course the usual betting scams and match fixings, and no doubt race officials prepared to scream “Charta rubea! Charta rubea!” for fun and profit, and fans who muttered about the arbitrator being caecus.

      Where was I? Ancient Rome, where they had bread and circuses – oh yes, and mobs, where I wanted to say that the Edinburgh mob was a definite Thing in Scotland back in the day, but in today’ s Glasgow we only have two colours of parties like that – the Blues (alternative strip orange) and the Greens (merged with the Whites, for some reason). Could we have – oh – the Muslims and the Hindus, for the sake of argument, form white and red teams just to make life more interesting? Hey, we could even have voting tribes!

      Wouldn’t that be fun – the blues and the greens and the reds and the whites, all playing at the same stadium in consecutive matches; two semifinals with the teams chosen by lot, followed by a final, all on the same day; rival fans screaming obscenities and singing vulgar and offensive songs at each other; the disaffected youth getting into running battles with each other and any uninvolved passers-by afterwards; a shedload of people complaining “nobis abstulerunt” or some such; others sending in the heavies over unpaid gambling debts; desecrating each others’ places of worship; getting blootered on vino tonico Buckfastis, upchucking on the omnibuses…

      Funny how the powers that be in this land – from the Imperial Government in London itself through its invertebrate – sorry, spineless – Governor Davidus Mundellius Ahenobarbus “Crinitus”; the patrician plutocrats and other nobs and nobesses who are the patrons of Caledoniae in Iunctione; and on down all the way to Murdoni Fraseri, all seem to support the Blues. Would the de facto team boss be Ruthia Filiadavidi Bocona, I wonder – no, that would be stretching things too far, I shouldn’t labour my point, there can be no call whatsoever to bring Ricardum Leonardum, or even Guielmum Rennium, into it, so I won’t, and I shall pass over Patricium Harvigem Viridem without comment, as being just too, too ridiculous.

        1. It suits the Powers That Be to have the Lower Orders knocking hell out of each other – distracts them from storming the Bastille and the Winter Palace, declaring republics and that sort of thing – but history does indeed tell us that all questions of ethics aside, fomenting, even just tacitly condoning such mob behaviour, mob violence and mindless tribalism is riding the tiger.

          Riding tigers is, of course, an activity that attracts arrogant, incompetent, bossy, attention-seeking know-nothings who won’t listen to sensible advice … the Brexiteers-in-Chief are cases in point, but the puppeteers, the éminences grises, the smart operators, the ones who smoothly take the gain while others feel the pain, stay well out of the limelight, in case they get caught at it.

          That isn’t just my own little tinfoil-hat, hair-on-fire conspiracy theory, it’s what we call the British Establishment, the BritNat meeja machine, the tired old fiction that is the United Kingdom. Independence is the only way out from under that for us Scots – if anyone has a better suggestion, then do please tell the rest of us, we could use a laugh. Just don’t say “federalism” or “devolution”, we want something new that works.

          In a grim sort of way, it’s good to see the tribal opposition making such a disgusting spectacle of itself – same with every rotten misstep and insult from the Westminster regime – it makes people open their eyes, they see the Nazi salutes, they realize the danger, they see the whole toxic Tory / Unionist / fascist / BritNat / Rangers / Loyalist / Ludger crap for what it is – and say to hell with all that d*amn sectarianism, and with the other nine tenths of that iceberg of hatred and intolerance that buoy it up, and to hell with all their enablers at Holyrood in all the ESSEMPEEBAD parties.

            In our own parliament we have Ruth who wouldn’t know the truth if it bit her on the bum and who has held at least half a dozen positions on Brexit in the last couple of years, from the “it would be a disaster for Scotland” to “hard Brexit for the UK” and everything in between. and on the other side we have this comic turn Carry On Dick character, who doesn’t even seem to realise that Scotland has its own legal system. As for wee Willie… well… aye.

            And yet… no great leap forward.

            Can it be that the Scottish public would rather perish with the UK and the lowest pensions and …well, I’m not going to do it all again, but you know what I mean, than attempt a Denmark-style democracy?

    And using latest available numbers then
    IPW = 13.5bn + 4.6bn = 18.1bn

    Given this situation has persisted for years then it follows that everyone in Scotland should be driving brand new cars, trucks etc living in lavish houses and the streets should be paved with gold.

      Needless to say he is now in the Lords and still running the country down at £300 a day, despite not having been elected. Given that he lost his seat in 1997, that’s an awful lot of £300 he’s pocketed.

      One of the things I detest most about the house of lords is that like Laing so many of them get put in there after they are rejected by their voters.

      It’s like the Establishment is saying… yews, you stupid people, we heard that you don;t want “x” any more, but we know better… so we give you “Lord X”.
