The coronavirus pandemic is, whether we like it or not, taking over our every wakingmoment, and no doubt quite a few of our sleeping ones as well.
As I sat down to write this, and typed in the date, I realised that it’s my son’s birthday, so I popped up to wish him a happy 23rd..he’s in his room self whatever it is they do at that age.
He had forgotten as well…we’ve just been out to get some food, beer and fags, as one cannot live without the essentials.
He went into the shops, with his mask on, a cunning plan to avoid me spending any money, and alarmingly, the rules don’t seem to be being adhered to.
In fact, we saw that fellow from the Chuckle Brothers reminding everyone
“ Two metre you “
Today we ask to spare a thought for our glorious leader Boris Johnson, who has contracted the Covid 19 virus, though frankly the thoughts about that that spring to my mind would probably get me locked up in the tower of London.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
His party, under his guidance for some of the time, has neglected the NHS, purely with the aim of privatisation, which may yet prove to be the reason for his inaction and policy of seeking herd immunity, when, at some time in the future he declares private investment is necessary to rebuild a shattered health service.
Hopefully, he gives that bastard Cummings a big hug before he locks himself away, which in no way can be considered a ploy to avoid questioning as to why he milked the applause for the NHS staff last night, while spending money on HS2, nuclear weapons and directing vacuum manufacturer Dyson….a substantial donor of funds to the Conservative Party…to make ventilators instead of one of the several firms throughout the country who actually know how to make them.
Let’s hope Dysons ventilators blow better than his vacuums suck.
And as far as appluading the NHS goes, we should do that, of course we should.
But we could also fund it as well, they’d appreciate that even more…
In the meantime, stay safe, stay home and look after yourself and your own, because we are sure as hell going to get no help from central government.
Now, in tune with our latest podcast, which is as good a way as any to while away the hours, here’s another question…
Can you identify which clubs are behind these two clauses in season book purchases…
From the Sun:
Celtic fans due season ticket compensation if season ends but Rangers ‘not liable’ for ‘£3.4m’ payout
CELTIC season ticket holders will be compensated if the campaign ends early – but Rangers ‘won’t be liable’ for an approximate £3.4m payout.
Scottish football is currently on hold as it deals with the global threat of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
Whether or not Celtic season book holders will demand a refund remains to be seen, as the club are currently involved in helping the community, and supporters may feel that as that is the clubs original mission, then there is a possibility that any demands for refunds will be few and far between, as we know that the club will not be pocketing the money.
Over at Ibrox, though, one wonders not what their supporters reaction will be, but why they inserted that clause in the first place.
Did they expect something to go wrong this season ? Were they planning for another event?
Seems like these days there are more questions than answers, and unlike in the quizcast, we don’t have alexa on hand to help us list the top scorers…by the way, there’s a growing consensus that i was robbed, robbed I tell you…
It’s refreshing to see there are some good guys out there….
BIG MORAL QUESTION ?
Knob of the Week
for this week, which as we have seen , requires a supreme level of knobbery to be even considerd these days, but this is outstanding, from Neil Cameron of the Evening Times…
Jim Traynor’s Loyalist replacement is a PR disaster for Rangers
RANGERS are not a new club. They didn’t die in 2012. I’ve never believed that or written anything close to it.
Those who spend their life banging on about Sevco need to find a hobby. Or a friend. Those who believe a football club’s identity exists on deeds, who the owner happens to be or all that boring stuff usually aren’t that into football.
Perhaps we should also award him the inaugural Woodward and Bernstein Award for Investigative journalism.
I’d forward this piece to Private Eye to be considered for the Paul Foot award, but I fear they would end up in A & E with ruptured ribs.
Yesterday, we had this…
