Celtic Diary Thursday December 31: Ending the Year With a Positive

A 3-0 win and convincing performance over Dundee United at Celtic Park yesterday left fans, players and management with a sense of confidence that the trip to Ibrox on Saturday may yet not be as bad as we feared.

 

As long as we don’t try to fix things that aren’t broken.

 

Goals from Ismael Soro…which somehow ended up in the wrong side of the net….David Turnbull and , eventually, after quite a few attempts, Oddsone Edoaurd put a few smiles on faces, and although “rangers ” are still way out in front, there’s now a reasonable chance, if everyone keeps doing what they’ve been doing, that not only will they be beaten on Saturday, they will be caught in the race for the title.

 

Which of course, will be viewed as not being good for Scottish football….

 

After all, an establishment that ignored racism and bigotry to protect their club is unlikely to balk at choosing match officials who protect them as well….especially in their hour of need when they badly need European champions League money to survive.

 

There is an insolvency event looming, delayed only by the global pandemic, at Ibrox, and they need money. They need their players to be seen as worth buying, and their club to be see as worth investing in. If they don’t win something soon, they’re in trouble.

 

And of our club isn’t prepared to help bury them, we have to hope the players are.

 

 

For the Scottish lads at Celtic, there is more than a title to play for. There’s the added bonus of being involved at the finals of whatever the European nations championship is called these days, and the possibility of playing at Wembley against England, something every Scotsman wants to do, and to do well in.

 

Griffiths, Forrest, Turnbull, Christie , MacGregor and maybe even Taylor could make the squad, and should certainly be trying as the season progresses.

 

We must be getting somewhere, and whatever probems there were must have been, to a degree at least, sorted, because Keith Jackson in the Record has noted that Celtic now have “momentum “….

 

It’s been been a month-long hunt for momentum. And yesterday Celtic completed the job.

This may not have been exactly vintage stuff from Neil Lennon’s side.

And the injury to Christopher Jullien, who left on a stretcher after thudding into the frame of his own goal while scrambling off the line, could yet prove to be a costly one given what lies around the next corner.

But with three more goals and three more league points tucked away, Lennon could not have wished to be in a better place than this when the car park was under siege at the start of this month.

Celtic’s recovery is not yet complete but it certainly must feel much better being Lennon these days after six straight wins.

 

The turnaround has been remarkable, and enjoyable, and we can almost say we’re looking forward to Saturday’s game.

 

 

As usual, we all have our own ideas as to who should start and who should play where, and I’m no different.

 

Greek goalkeeper Vassilis Barkas played yesterday, and the manager further boosted his confidence by announcing he’ll play at Ibrox. Barkas, more than anyone, has suffered from having an assortment of players, some not even defenders, in front of him this season, yet has kept clean sheets in half of his appearances.

 

Like Greg Taylor, he’s suffering from not being someone else,in this case Fraser Forster,  and needs to be given a break.

 

At right back, Kris Ajer should get the nod. Equally pacey as Jeremie Frimpong, he;s less likely to be bundled or bullied out of a game, and whilst a defender may want to obstruct Frimpong running at him, the prospect of the giant Ajer running towards you at pace will make anyone think twice about getting in the way. Thats not to say Frimpong doesn;t have a part to play. An entrance later in the game, trying to get behind tired defenders would cause havoc, and might even get Celtic a free kick.

 

 

On the left, there’s a similar scenario…start with Taylor, and latterly introduce Laxalt. The former has defensive discipline and the latter doesn’t have any discipline of any kind, and that discipline will be needed on Saturday.

 

Chris Jullien and Shane Duffy to keep it simple in the middle…I know Jullien banged his leg, but a bit of ointment and he should be fine….which also gives us that extra option in their box from set pieces, especially now we’ve got someone who can get the ball over.

 

Another talking point is the Brown/Soro conundrum. Soro further strengthened his case with his goal yesterday, and again he has the positional and mental discipline that Brown, who can be a bit , er, excitable, doesn’t have.

 

And it’s no surprise that both midfield and defence have benefitted from his presence. Brown can make an appearance later, doing his peacock strut in front of the home bench at full time.

Calum MacGregor and Ryan Christie can play on either side and just behind David Turnbull which,  if Steve clarke wants me to be even remotely interested in the England game next summer, should be the national midfield, along with James Forrest, completing a midfield diamind that can both stifle the opposition and create chances for the dynamic duo up front, Edouard and Griffiths, who are improving as a double act with every appearance , in exactly the same way that Mike and Bernie Winters never did.

 

Even with their fucking dog.

 

For those of you who don’t know who those two are, don’t look. It’s really not worth it.

 

 

Pace, power, attitude and effort.

 

 

With 2020 now behind us, football wise, it’s time to look ahead.

 

Starting on Saturday, starting at Ibrox, by starting with those mentioned above.

 

 

Piece of piss this management lark.

 

 

 

As regular readers of the diary will recall, i’ve been harping on about the current health crisis for some time. some have agrred with me, some have disagreed.

 

What is certain now, despite the media doing their darndest to hide the grim realities, is that it’s approaching, if not already usurping, the disaster that was spring this year.

 

It’s clear the government hasn’t got either the desire or the ability to offer sensible advice, so please, wear your mask, wash your hands but above all, stay as far away as you can from anyone you don’t live with.

 

And keep your own at home as much as you can, if you have to go out , go out alone.

 

Then, we can not only have a Happy New Year, but we might all be around to wish it to each other this time next year.

 

 

 

Thanks everyone for taking the time to read this shite, and also for bearing with me while it’s been a little more erratic in its appearances since the plague came to town.

 

Here’s to a better year next year, and at midnight tonight I’ll raise a glass to each and every one of you, to your  health and happiness.

 

The same glass, mind you, if I were to toast you individually I’d be in a coma before the hootenanny is finished.

 

All the best.

Great piece Ralph.

Best wishes to you and yours for the New Year.

Looking at the knock Jullien took yesterday I can’t see him being fit for Saturday (granted it’s the Celtic medical team we’re talking about so if he has a 30% chance of playing he’ll get an injection to play) and think Bitton will start.

Likewise Saturday still to soon for Jamesie and although probably the player we’ve missed the most these past 3 months will be Christie starting.

I agree with you regarding Ajer and Taylor.

The team seem more confident with Soro and Turnbull in there and we’ve nothing to fear Saturday.

Give them no respect whatsoever and take the game to them. People go on about the result in October as if they played some fantastic football, at best they were marginally better than us and again lucky to finish with 10 as the Columbian shouldn’t have stayed on the park. Their second got an unfortunate break of CalMac and 1st was bad defending.

Keep the faith and stay safe.

Hail Hail all.

Actually looking forward to Saturday which wasn’t the case a couple of weeks ago. The last time we played ‘ them’ we had no Eddy, no Ryan Christie, no Griffiths, Soro and Turnbull weren’t on and no El Hamid ir Bitton, above all no confidence. Not sure whether I want Laxhalt ir Taylor on. Ajer at right back would be good but that means Duffy and Bitton in the centre. As for the keeper big big call, Barkas is an international but has struggles, Hazard looks good but does not have the experience for such a crucial fixture, you pays your money….

Really hope lenny doesn’t bring back brown as the energy that midfield 4 have will be vital against them . I have no doubt we will score , if they come out and attack us eddy will have space to run at the defence with griff. As ever it will come down to the defence. It concerns me even in yesterday’s game how many crosses our big centre half’s fail to get the head on . Hope julienne makes it

All the best when it comes Ralph/Richie. Thanks for your (very occasional, this year) articles; one of very few things to brighten up the days (when they were posted 😉 ) in 2020.
Mike & Bernie Winters were indeed a pair of fuds, but it’s a bit unfair to include ‘Schnorbitz’ as he, at least, had a smidgin of comic talent; and he didn’t appear at the Glasgow Empire (Aw! For fucks sake! There’s two of the bastards.) career defining fiasco.

Apologies but here I go again.
My dads last Christmas on this earth me and my wife stayed in his house in omeath. The pipes burst in the night and the house was flooded. Hilarious panic ensued I couldn’t find the stopcock. Eventually after a while I found a broke joint in the attic.
Off to the five ways Newry for loads of kitchen roll and cleaning stuff.
My dad was so happy we were there and what would have been a disaster on his own turned into a laugh and a really happy memory.
He was shortly after diagnosed with cancer and died a few months later.
Has anyone else seen the videos of old people being treated like prisoners in the nursing homes. Lots of old people are dying alone after not seeing their families for months.
I would not give up that last Christmas for anything. My dad was a volunteer and my hero. I got my distrust of the establishment from him. I don’t think people realise how genuinely evil they are.
Sage is led by behavioral scientists not medical experts. The 77th brigade are doing a brilliant job on their own people.
There is no evidence behind asymptotic spread. People without symptoms have never been drivers of respiratory illness. We are being conditioned to treat everyone like they are diseased.
Young people are the least likely to suffer illness from covid but they are the ones who will pay dearest, mentally, physically and financially.
We are the generation that’s going to give away our freedom. Young people are going to have to fight to get it back.
I got accused of being a thatcherite here for believing in individual freedom. I genuinely believe we’re being lied to on a massive scale. Health passports, mandatory vaccines, coming our way cheered on by so called anti fascists.

You are incorrect many virus transmission can and do happen without symptoms. You need to look at the science and avoid the right wing propaganda. What you say is dangerous to others.

Asymptomatic means no symptoms. When someone has an infection, there is a period of time after they catch the germ before they have symptoms. This is called the incubation period. In some cases, people may catch the infection and never have any symptoms. Even with no symptoms, it’s possible to spread an infection. For example, the flu is contagious a day before someone develops symptoms. For COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, it’s most contagious when someone has symptoms, but it’s still possible to spread the infection from person to person even with no symptoms.

Winning this game is down to Lenny, will he pick the correct players or go with sentiment? Team clicked against United, third goal a thing of Beauty, which as usual the clowns on S/S tried to downplay. As for the Orange Order they looked crap against the Buddies. A New Year a new start, let’s grind ra peepul down.
Jackass opinion is worth a toilet wipe a bit like the rag he writes for, every day criticising the team, and lauding the Wankers.

A great Healthy New Year to one and all, keep up the good work Ralph and ten in a row in the bag.

Stephen O’Donnell’s great book ‘Tangled Up In Blue’ highlight’s how insolvency follows them around like Bernie Winters St’ Bernards dog on a lead, Schnorbitz. (no me neither). Serial cheats and obnoxious bigots usually get what they deserve. I read that the Gimp (Arfield) and Quasimodo (Black) will be unavailable on Saturday. This season so far Lady Luck and their 12th. man have always been by their side. So, we have to be much better than them and carry a little luck to get the better off them. If we draw or lose this game, then say goodbye to 10, it is imperative that we win.

Best wishes for 2021 to all on eTims for helping us all through this dreadful year. Haven’t heard from Pensionerbhoy recently, I hope that he and his good lady are in good health and keeping well.

Ralph, many thanks for doing what you do. The forum means a lot to us. Peace and good cheer in 2021 to you and yours.

I feel a glimmer of hope for the Newco match. I think big Eddy is due a big performance. They have never stopped him when he’s on form. Griff can be a winner as well. Not sure about Barkas but maybe it would have been a step too far for Hazard?

Anyway, Tims/Fenians, have a good Hogmanay but keep safe too.

My parents were out on that day in ’71. I remember saying to my father when he came in,
‘Lots of people have been killed at Ibrox’ He said no, lots will have been arrested.
We had relatives at the game but of course at the other end.
If only. A terrible day for everyone but particularly for those boys from Markinch.
Hope Rebus is still around reading this and if so Happy New Year to you and all Celts.

I know this has been said many times but I think now it’s true to say that Saturdays game is the most important in a very long time. Win and win well and we can do the 10.
If we lose I think its gone and that’ll scar me for life.
I say this with genuine good intentions but anyone feeling vulnerable or with vulnerable loved ones look into the importance of vitamin d3 for a healthy immune system.

Mike and Bernie Winters performance at the Glasgow Empire is the stuff of legend. Mike was on stage first, dying slowly in front of a stoically silent Glasgow audience. When Bernie stuck his head out from between the curtains, someone in the front row was heard to shout “Awe christ, there’s two of them”.

The video doesn’t present any evidence that the virus doesn’t exist only that HSE doesn’t have any record of the kind that was requested. Why didn’t they put the letter on the site for all to see? She just read it out and we don’t know if she was lying about or misinterpreting what she purports is in the letter. There are other conclusions that can be drawn: hospitals have records, other governments have records and Ireland accepted the scientific evidence from studies carried out elsewhere. It’s not only an Irish matter and it is highly unlikely that the whole world is victim of a hoax perpetrated by…who exactly? Do answer that question please. What would it take for a small group to fool the whole world? Even Trump finally got voted out!

You have to treat these sites like BitShute at least the same way you treat government or mainstream media sites, i.e. with skepticism, you can’t just take them at face value because you don’t like to sacrifice a certain amount of your liberty for the public good or don’t like such and such a government. And if you want an alternative news site why not go to sites are independent and don’t peddle conspiracy theories but are critical of governments and elites.

So let me ask you and I’ll give you the correct answers in brackets so you can check your understanding of the matter:

  1. Did you see the letter? [NO]
  2. Does it establish scientifically that covid 19 doesn’t exist? [NO]
  3. Are you sure the presenter was telling the truth? [NO]
  4. Have other countries provided scientific evidence that covid 19 exists? [YES]
  5. If they have, should we ignore it because of this letter from HSE? [NO]

It’s terrible but it’s not manufactured PC. Nobody was prepared, everyone’s catching up and initial efforts to get on top hampered in Europe by nationalism and in the States by anti-science fundamental Christians and ultra right wing politicos. But there’s enough science now – it’s real. As regards the vaccine – I’ll take it but I know nothing is 100% sure. To some extent it’s good to be skeptical, to ask questions but not be paralysed. Ultimately everything involves some kind of cost–benefit calculation. Sure some will be allergic to the vaccine but a very small minority, the vast majority will benefit. Everything in medicine is like that. Everything involving humans involves some uncertainty. Be safe.

Say what you like about Gemma o Doherty but she could have been a success in the main stream media if she towed the party line. I think she believes what she’s saying. John waters was a respected journalist.
On my first week on furlough I listened to professor knut wittkowski. He made sense to me. Since then I’ve listened to professor dolores cahill. Ivor Cummins. The statistics guy. Joel small. Mich Yeadon. Professor bhakdi. Dr John Lee. Michael Levitt. Professor Carl henaghan. Rashid buttar. All them German doctors from the world doctors alliance. Dr Judy mikovic. The ice age farmer
I watched a video from amazing polly on the global health mafia. The corbett report. The crap I’ve watched the last 9 months is not healthy. All the above have been discredited by the main stream, alot have been banned from YouTube and twitter. Alot of these government experts have serious conflicts of interest.
Who to believe.
When you watch the news and then see an alternative view of the way things can be presented you really can lie with statistics and tell the truth and lie at the same time.
I just believe we’re being lied to.
I’m not denying covid but I’m not sure it is what they’re saying.
Has it been isolated properly using Koch postulates.
Is asymptomatic spread a thing
PCR testing reliable?
Does mask wearing in the general population reduce spread. We’ll be wearing them forever. Is it healthy for young people in low paid jobs to be wearing masks for prolonged periods day in day out.
I don’t like all this talk of health passports. I don’t like getting my temperature taken before work will let me in.
Has a precedent been set now that the government can lock us down any time a bad flu comes along.
The current money system looks like its going to collapse to me. The world debt is frightening. What will replace it. Cashless? More government control.
I honestly couldn’t give a crap about myself, I’m worried about the future generations.

OK PC. Always good to keep your eye on governments and hold them to account. Personally, I believe the economic system has to change. It needs to serve everyone not just the elites and middle classes. But I think it really requires us to have a different relationship with each other, it’s not about tweaking the system.It’s essentially a moral/ethical issue.

If the virus is as dangerous as portrayed, why dont they keep victims away from general hospitals in the same way TB patients were sent to sanatoriums?

Why arent the nightingale hospitals being used?

Why, if this new strain is worse than the last, are they not looking for volunteers as before or using the Armed Forces who are probably better equipped?

As for the NHS being overwhelmed: is it any different from pre-covid when patients were lying on trolleys in hospital corridors and operations were still being cancelled, or does no-one wish to remember those days?

The discovery of antibiotics ended the need for sanitoriums hence thye’ve been out of the picture for a very long time. TB patients needed to be isolated for long periods of time and that is not the case with covid 19 patients. It can be managed within the current hospital systems unless a lot of believers in conspiracy theories don’t follow the rules and the hospitals get swamped.

The covid situation in hospitals is worse than pre covid situation although to be sure conservative party’s underfunding of NHS has been a disgrace and there has to be constant vigilance to make sure that is rectified – we definitely don’t want it privatised. But be careful not to turn anti govenment sentiments into covid denial. Whatever government is in change has to deal with these things. I think Boris Johnson and his cronies have been a disaster but I listen to a wide range of scientists ( I doubt many are happy with the way British government has performed. Ditto in USA where Fauci and Trump have been at loggerheads) as do the politicians. But there is always a political element in how science is interpreted and applied – what will be the effect on such and such a group? Can we/should we pay for it? Who benefits, who loses?

We get told every day how many have now got the virus and yet they wont tell us in a months time how many have recovered. They hope that we keep adding up the figures as if no one gets better.

If you look at their figures from the start of the
scare until now, they show how many have caught it and how many have died but have a zero down under recovery. So how do we do the maths without all the figures?

If you made a claim to the government for a pension for an industrial injury based on your own diagnosis you would soon get short shrift but yet we have to diagnose Covid 19 ourselves based on a sneeze or a sniffle and told to lie off work, even though it could mean losing your job.

Reply to  Cole Burns

I’m not sure what point you’re trying to make.

I’d assume the vast majority of people have no or minor symptoms but a significant minority suffer more severe symptoms.

There have been over 3,000 deaths in the past week in the UK and it’s expected that the peak may still be weeks away.

Also, how do you define recovery? A mate of mine who was hospitalised for 2 weeks in March still requires hospital tests, treatment etc, so has he recovered?

There are also others who have suffered long term organ damage etc so have they recovered?

No one is asked to diagnose themselves, instead if you have the main critical symptoms you are advised to precautionary isolate until a test is carried out to prove or otherwise whether you have the virus.

It is the test that determines whether someone has the virus and not any self-diagnosis.

Heres the point Im making. According to their daily figures there have been ZERO recoveries.
What about Odsonne Edward and Turnbull to name only two. Are they still playing while still suffering, According to the figures they are.

Self diagnosis means, in case you missed it, that if you FEEL you have the virus, then self isolate. You cant be diagnosed if you have to stay away from the doctors surgery.

Self isolating without recourse to a doctor is self diagnosing, however way you look at it.

I know full well that there are many people, like your friends, with problems. My nieces daughter, who herself is a GP, is suffering terrible after-affects but that doesnt mean that out of the thousands who have picked up the virus all still have it
as the figures suggest.

Zero recovery means no one, even the asymptomatic, have ever recovered.

On a happier note, you picked the same team as myself, Ralph, though how a medical team doesn’t know the extent of Jullien’s knee injury is yet another Lennoxtown puzzler.

Get right in about them from the first whistle, even their own Captain Pen admitted they’re bottlers when you run at them and get up in their faces.
Cos like all Brits they do not like it up em.

Im starting to think that Jullien is another Jozo, a good defender but knees like glass, and I only hope Duffy’s confidence comes back enough for him to kick Colombian baw jaws aff the park.

‘please, wear your mask, wash your hands but above all, stay as far away as you can from anyone you don’t live with.
 
And keep your own at home as much as you can, if you have to go out , go out alone.‘

Well, that’s not very positive or forward looking, is it, Ralph?

Here’s something a lot more positive for all of us to look forward to

Happy New Year to all E-Timmers and especially tae Ralph for giving us a place tae rant and rave. I said a while ago that I still believe we will win the Ten, and on Saturday we will take a giant step towards that when we beat “them” and burst their bubble.
Before the team goes out ontae the pitch, show them the video of Gerrard screaming intae the camera after they beat us, if that disnae motivate the team nothing will. COYBIG

Why do you insist on putting a link to a site that consists of many right wing enthusiasts that have been banned on other social media outlets for hate speech on a brilliant Celtic forum?

Big Don Gazpachio

Because the information is all that matters, kid.

I was a Labour guy my whole life till I realised what cheating fascist scum bags they truly were at heart so now I don’t give a monkeys about the source, only the verifiablity of the info contained therein.

And in this vid, the info says that Covid doesn’t exist.

And this from the Irish govt itself.

So who gives a feck what other folk call those who extracted this information?

I don’t know Gemma O’Doherty nor do I care about her politics but what other person on Earth has got such a confession from a government, any government, since this whole pack of lies broke?

The info is all that matters.

So that answers your question.

Now let me ask mine …

Who do you vote for?

And that’s ‘Its’, Jimbohhh …

Nit that TGM is an ‘It’ ..

TGM is simply the manifestation of a thought process nurtured and informed by a lifetime of study into what’s really going on here.

And quite aside from your bad grammar yer use of commas and abbreviations is brutally appalling, if ye don’t mid me saying so, which, of course, I know ye do.

But still at least your paymaster spotted me, even if it took him three full months to do so.

Now I huv tae ask you …

How dae YOU feel morally & ethically knowing ye’re being paid to tell lies on begjalf of a medical establishment that covers yer @rse fur ye while writing maniacal Shute about those who are concerned for Celtic Football Club and its, (ITS, mind!), once incredible support?

Cos I wouldn’t be who I am without The Lions nor the respect they brought our club and our great city internationally, a fact of which I’m reminded of every time I’ve been abroad.

Those men made me who I am today, Jibber, so without them you and yer cronies wouldn’t know anything alit the multiple hoaxes being pulled on h7manity in yer gaffers’ name.

So thanks for taking the time to pay attention and thank yer gaffer thanks for his fears.

For there really is a house of cards teetering in the background of Celtic Park and you better decide which side you want to be on when it eventually comes down.

Ofr that really is the wonders of the internet, bams that they think they’re still ‘anonymous’ but don’t know how to use servers & routers and suchlike therefore leave themselves open to all manner of intrusion, and they’ll never know anything about it.

So here’s tae the future, Jimbohhh.

Now tell us all …

Whats YOUR part in it?

For the benefit of the readers, of course …

So we all know where we stand when the walls come tumbling down ..?

Over tae you, Jimbohhhh!

Can ye read me?

Captain ..?

Of course you’re free to believe a right wing, conspiracy theories promulagator like BitChute.

But check what the Irish PM said:

The Republic of Ireland will move to Level Five restrictions in a bid to stem rising infection rates of Covid, the Taoiseach (Irish PM) has confirmed.
Micheál Martin said the more severe restrictions would remain in place from midnight for at least a month.
The country had returned to stricter coronavirus restrictions on Christmas Eve with the closure of restaurants, hairdressers and gastro pubs.
Schools will remain closed until 11 January instead of 6 January.
The decision does not apply to childcare facilities or créches.
Mr Martin said the Reproduction number was currently estimated at between 1.6 and 1.8 and the situation was “extremely serious”
Ireland has been operating on a five-level plan for dealing with Covid.

Now this is from BBC admittedly but check out any of the Irish papers and they’re reporting the same thing. Oh you think they’re all lying and only BitChute knows the true picture. Aye right!

Actually I think it’s better to stick to Celtic matters (there’s enough to disagree on) on this site but couldn’t let your opinio go unchallenged.

Hazard gives me more confidence than Barkas. The guy just doesn’t inspire me one bit. I’m glad Hazard was in goal in the cup final it was what won us the cup. If he plays Barkas he could lose us the league .

Jimmybee, since the decision has been made we just have to accept it and hope that Barkas saves their penalty…’cos it’s a stick on that they’ll fabricate one and their men in black will be itching to oblige. Their media pals have already started their attacks on Eduarde saying he shouldn’t be playing due to a “lunge, out of control, over the ball…” tackle. They are absolutely shitting themselves at the thought of Celtic winning tomorrow. We’d go away to Dubai on a high and come back refreshed and ready to extend the winning run.I sincerely hope that many pairs of unbiased official eyes will be on this match tomorrow because every dirty trick in the book will be used by that mob. I’ll stick my neck out….3-1 Celtic.

Happy New Year, Ralph & Desi.

I know we have our differences but I reckon you’re good men at heart, if a bit misguided at times.

Still, the world would not be the same without ETims & the Bhoys ranting & raving to get us through the shite.

Cheers for everything.

But I’m serious …

There is no virus or we’d aw be deid.

That’s whit pandemics dae so what we’re witnessing is just the end game of the corporate control mechanism.

Capitalism died in 2008 remember.

Well, this is its successor, the fascist technocracy.

All the best for 2021.

Pandemics never kill everyone. Historically pandemics have killed millions but never everyone (or obviously you and I wouldn’t be reading Etims). Where did you get that information that pandemics kill everyone?

What’s more important to you Broxie bear?

Facts or opinions?

Are you a leftie or a daftie?

Theyre not mutually exclusive you know.

You can be, and most likely are, both at the same time.

So who gets your vote and your travelling expenses, Broxie boy?

Which vampire leech do you prefer sucking out your particular pocket?

Tell us in all honesty now or you’ll just look like a bigger fud than we all knew you were in the first place.

Let me know, boys.

I’ll be happy to keep you informed of their nefarious activities which your vote encourages.
