  2. Certainly a lot being asked of fans now. Season tickets, New Edmiston House packages, MyGers and now £500 a skull share offers. It is of course only fair to ask us to share the financial burden with other shareholders but I will urge supporters to be careful in balancing their love for the club and their own fiscal well-being.

  3. I think I speak for the majority of Gersnetters here, Fergal should go back and front up the Undertones again. My Perfect Cousin, Jimmy Jimmy, Teenage Kicks, ............. etc; all improved by Fergal's delivery. Here's one for the odd Yahoo(you are all odd) looking in, 'It's going to happen, happen all the time'.

  4. Funny how ex-smokers are almost always the most intolerant, a bit like religious converts, whereas I feel quite sorry for them having to go outside in all weathers. My old man died of emphysema so I never took it up.

  5. Switzerland isn't one of the 26 EU countries. It's probably the case that 40 greatest yodelling hits of the 70s is out of stock

  6. Yeah, I get the suspicious activity message. Tried it on 2 different laptops and different browsers but none have worked. I've also given up for the moment. I'll try later. Perhaps the website was just too busy.

  7. Was it not 8 or 9 months? That's fairly sizeable. However it could be the EBTs he was referring to but as the case was still going through the courts at that point, and whether tax was actually due had still to be finally established, his use of "non-compliance" doesn't stack up for me, although he could be using that word to put a spin on it.

  8. In 2004, Greece arrived in Portugal with the perfect combination. Minced lamb and beef simmered in olive oil, aubergine, tomato and, potato were added then, bayleaf, garlic, red wine and, cinnamon completed the necessary characteristic. The difference between a good Moussaka and an excellent example is the dried cinnamon. When cut in it's baking tray, it should stand in tumescent glory, no flopping to the parameters of the plate. Cinnamon supplies the stiffener. Again, we must blame ra Sellik for the paucity of Scotland's chances. If Peter had appointed the greatest Moussaka man, Ange Postecoglou after Lenny's first tenure, he would have completed a gazilion trebles and moved on to the national job by now. I fear Steve Clarke is a flaccid Moussaka man?

  10. No fags since July 1975. If I lit up now, I’d have twenty by bedtime. I’ve never really stopped, just keep on postponing the next one.

  13. Dirty filthy habit, perpetrated by death-wishers with their bad breath and yellow teeth. I know, I used to be one many years ago before I reverted to being a decent member of society who doesn't pollute everyone else's air supply. Go Oxfordshire, go Humza, ban it completely.

  14. You don't plan to allot £6.75m worth of shares on the open market unless you have a very good idea that the offering won't fail. If I were to guess it would be that a significant portion of these shares is going to be guaranteed by a new major investor. Not only are the existing main shareholders unlikely to dig much deeper but the board must recognise the need to start succession planning. What remains to be seen is the offer price and therefore the number of shares to be placed. It may be a consistent 20p but it might also reflect the greatly improving prospects for the club and land at 25p or 30p, which would tend to inflate the value of existing shares too.

  18. £100K max is relatively small for many of them so they may not take part. I'm guessing that the cash from this may be earmarked for repaying Dave King for his loan plus interest and the existing ones may have baulked at giving cash to do this.

  20. People should take responsibility for their actions in this as they would in any other matter. In any case, I'm not sure this share issue depends too much on ordinary fans investing £500. I saw no mention of the issue being underwritten by anyone but I expect the great majority of these shares will still end up in very few hands.

  21. Heinz to open up a manufacturing plant in the North of England. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-57312162 "Kraft Heinz says it will invest $199m (£140m) in a UK food manufacturing facility over the next four years. The plans for the plant in north west England would see British favourites - ketchup, mayonnaise and salad cream - made in the country once again."

  22. Yeah Mesers Gupta and Ferguson would have the country locked down forever while companies fail and people die of non covid related diseases - remember them? Nearly 40m people have been vaccinated with at least 1 jab. It is time to open up and get back to normal and the virologists can drop the celebrity status and focus on the next vaccine efficacy (like they do for flu) and the Government get back to focussing on the economy and ignoring the SNP.

  23. I really don't know why we're skirting around this. The decisions taken at HMRC were taken by people, not machines, individuals with likes and dislikes, personal agendas and inherent bias. Every single important decision taken by HMRC in this affair was a value judgement and could just as easily have been completely different. Nothing that HMRC did was inevitable. There were choices and the decisions taken were exercised by individual people. No one will ever persuade me that a significant part of those decisions wasn't a visceral hatred of Rangers or what it was perceived Rangers stood for. It was a stitch-up and officials at HMRC were at the heart of it.

  24. Aside from the ludicrous fee, the problem with McBurnie is that he is clearly vulnerable to a noise up. He will be targeted up here and I would question his temperament to handle it.

  25. Spiked - The Remainers were wrong about literally everything Every smug pronouncement from these know-it-alls has disintegrated on contact with reality. A long and painful chapter for Britain’s chattering classes has finally drawn to a close. The European Parliament has voted to ratify the Brexit trade deal – finally snuffing out the last vestiges of Remainer hope. It’s the final nail in the coffin for Project Fear, which presented Brexit as an unmitigated disaster. Remainers were sure there was no easy way out of the EU – but events since 2016 have put paid to countless dire warnings about Brexit armageddon. In the eyes of the Remainer elite, it was totally obvious to anyone with half a brain cell that Brexit would be a disaster. EU fanatic James O’Brien summed up this arrogance when he wrote a book called How to be Right, and a follow-up called How Not to be Wrong. Fellow anti-Brexit bore Fintan O’Toole captured this, too, with books titled Heroic Failure: Brexit and the Politics of Pain and Three Years in Hell: The Brexit Chronicles. But in the end, the Remainers ended up getting pretty much everything wrong. Let’s look back on some of their most spectacularly botched predictions and miscalculations. ‘Businesses will flee the UK’ Remainers were convinced Brexit would force countless businesses to move overseas. They were certain that the manufacturing industry in the Leave-voting north would collapse, confirming the stupidity of voters there once and for all. When reports arose that car manufacturer Nissan would move some production overseas – out of the Leave stronghold of Sunderland – Remoaners seized on the bad news. The exodus had begun, and the thick, racist northerners were reaping what they sowed. Observer writer Carole Cadwalladr said the voters had been duped: ‘Sorry for your loss, Sunderland. You were lied to. By a campaign that can’t prove it was legally funded or even British.’ Some Remainers even gloated at the news, with one novelist tweeting, ‘Bet you are not laughing today if you work at Nissan. You were warned.’ But like so many prophecies of Brexit-induced doom, fears that Nissan would shut up shop in Sunderland did not bear out in reality. In fact, Nissan said this year that Brexit is an advantage for the company – and it has committed to creating more jobs in the UK. Ashwani Gupta, Nissan’s chief operating officer, said: ‘Brexit for Nissan is a positive. We’ll take this opportunity to redefine the auto industry in the UK.’ Nissan has also announced plans to manufacture car batteries in the UK rather than import them from Japan. Brexit Britain is attracting new investment. According to financial consultancy Bovill, around 1,000 EU firms are considering opening new offices in the UK. Economic projections from the IMF (which strongly opposed Brexit) now show there has been no negative impact on economic growth from leaving the EU. In fact, Britain’s growth is expected to be higher than the rest of the EU’s in the coming years. ‘Trade will collapse’ Not only were Remainers certain that jobs would evaporate as companies fled to better climes. They were also certain that the UK would lose out on huge amounts of trade with Europe. But although exports to the EU fell in the months following the transition period, they have already recovered. Imports remain down, but they are catching up, too. Who’d have guessed that the EU would still want to do business with one of its biggest trade partners post-Brexit? ‘Brexit will make us ill’ Many Remainers were convinced that Brexit would be a disaster for the nation’s health. Some warned hysterically that trade barriers could even lead to a shortage of medicines. Back in 2019, the then chief medical officer, Dame Sally Davies, warned bluntly that Brexit put lives at risk. Other ‘experts’ entertained the ludicrous fear that Brexit would unleash a wave of infectious diseases across the UK – including super-gonorrhoea – unless Britain maintained close health cooperation with the EU. Of course there was an outbreak of infectious disease in the form of Covid. But this had nothing to do with Brexit. In fact, Brexit has helped the UK fight the pandemic – because the UK rightly avoided signing up to the EU’s ultimately disastrous Covid vaccine programme. Of course, Remainers wailed that lives would be lost if we didn’t stick with the EU programme. Lib Dem health spokeswoman Munira Wilson called the decision ‘unforgiveable’, and fellow Lib Dem Layla Moran moaned that the government was putting ‘Brexit over vaccines’. But thanks to opting out of the EU’s car-crash programme, the UK is now miles ahead of every EU member state in vaccinating its people. Brexit did seem to affect Remainers’ mental health, however. Some actually admitted that Brexit had sent them potty: the Metro ran an article in 2019 with the headline, ‘Brexit has triggered my anxiety and depression – and I’m not the only one’. It was clearly a challenging few years for Remainers’ sanity. Brexit Derangement Syndrome led Labour MP David Lammy to ask if Dominic Cummings was a Russian spy. And Green MP Caroline Lucas ended up advocating a Remainer coup, demanding the replacement of the elected government with an all-female ‘emergency cabinet’ of Remainers. ‘Brexit can be reversed with a People’s Vote’ Remainers were sure that they would win the 2016 referendum. The man who called the vote, David Cameron, was so confident that he reportedly ordered the civil service not to prepare for a Leave victory. But losing the vote wasn’t Remainers’ only electoral embarrassment. Many also campaigned tirelessly for a second referendum – or a ‘People’s Vote’, as they insisted on calling it. And this time, they really would win it. After all, they had time on their side, right? Old Leave voters were dying off, and the country was becoming more pro-EU as a result, they claimed. The Metro even boldly declared on 19 March 2019 – the day John Bercow blocked Theresa May from bringing her Brexit deal before the Commons for a third time – that ‘Britain turns Remain today as more elderly Leavers die’. At the last election, the Labour Party took up the People’s Vote cause, hoping to capitalise on this allegedly burgeoning desire to reverse Brexit. In the end, Labour suffered its worst electoral defeat since the 1930s. The Conservatives, meanwhile, won an historic victory under the mantra of ‘Get Brexit Done’. Two years on, with Brexit a reality, polling shows that more people want to stay out than rejoin. Remainers never got their People’s Vote. But perhaps they were lucky to avoid another humiliation at the ballot box. ‘Change UK will shake up politics’ In 2019, a new force emerged to break the Brexit deadlock: Change UK. A political supergroup made up of some of Labour’s and the Tories’ most die-hard Remainers. The press covered its arrival with great excitement and commentators wondered whether the two-party system might finally be on the ropes. For Ian Dunt, author of Brexit: What the Hell Happens Now? there was ‘no reason this [couldn’t] succeed’. For the Guardian’s Jonathan Freedland, the group really could ‘change our politics’. But it all ended in tears. At the 2019 European Parliament election, the group got just 3.3 per cent of the vote. In the 2019 General Election, its few remaining MPs (the rest had defected to other parties by then) got a paltry 10,000 votes between them. Not a single one of the MPs who originally joined Change UK – including those who jumped ship and stood as Lib Dems – retained their seat after the election. Less than a year after forming, the group dissolved and was consigned to the dustbin of history. Elite Remainers thought they had a right to rule. They thought their knowledge of politics, economics and the EU made them superior. But events since the referendum have shown how divorced these people are from reality. They should never be allowed to forget it.
