    Labour plans tax theft

    Nothing to do with income, which merely shows how blinkered you are. This is about asset wealth. Have they even thought of what happens when these assets are passed to children - how are they to pay these wealth taxes on new assets they have ? We already have too many families having to sell family homes to pay taxes when inherited. So much about this is wrong - it isn't just wrong, its just amazing stupidity.

    Then target the Corporations, instead of wealthy individuals who are already paying 50% tax on income. Why should they pay even more ? Because they have it ? Aye, that will encourage inward investment and entrepreneurism. The brain drain will be like nothing we've ever seen. In a technological age where almost all jobs can be done remotely, makes perfect sense

    exactly this.
  4. The food chain isn't fucked up. People have choices, they choose poorly. The main staple foods of a proper, balanced diet are still there, as they have been for centuries. You even state as much with your "if you want to improve the quality of life, don't eat shite". All about choices. You lay the blame of all ills at the feet of corporations. The reality is actually that if people chose to eat healthier then the corporations you so despise would either die or change. People make choices which allow corporations to generate outsized profits.

    Is Scottish Football Corrupt?

    I can't be the only fan who is struggling to even watch games anymore. Corruption ? Inconsistency ? Honest mistakes ? When the majority of them go against you, or in favour of your biggest rivals for trophies, it effectively removes the word "competition" from the equation. It obliterates your energy for it, knowing that it isn't a level playing field, unless of course we actually believe that "they even themselves out over a season". We are currently 8 points behind Celtic, fair enough We have dropped points of our own making too many times, fair enough. But if you ask yourself how many points Celtic have dropped that were because of poor officiating - and how many points they have gained because of poor officiating.... and that is before you even begin looking at the same thing for us, it is galling. We had a 3 point swing in the 1st OF game (Jack foul, game would otherwise have ended 0-0, despite us being pumped), you also then have a 2 point swing this past weekend where a player scored a winner who should not have been on the pitch to score it - and, indeed, their opponents were down to 10 men AFTER he should have been sent off). That is 5 points in just two games (one game I watched, obviously - the other I just saw the images. I don't watch them but you can be sure there are more examples of points gained due to poor officiating. That is 5 out of 8 of a difference. Now, not for one minute am I excusing us dropping points we shouldn't, or indeed even poor performances against teams we should be beating - but when your rivals seem to be getting an unproportionate amount of "good luck" from officiating, and when the national media cover up any misdeeds (or show inconsistency - BBC said Brown's was a yellow card, yet absolutely hounded the authorities to give McGregor a two game ban) and attempt to derail us at every opportunity.... then your energy and passion for it just vanishes. We aren't playing on a level playing field - and that is the most galling aspect. If we were, and ended up second best, then fair enough. But I would just like to know how close we are if there actually was a competition in place. Lawwell has exactly what he always wanted - Rangers back at the top table but being crippled to prevent us from challenging, not just financially but from his vice-like grip on the media narrative, a very compliant media and a CO who, it seems, is more than willing to further assist in ensuring that Rangers will not challenge their run at the title. It is his dream scenario. It's sickening - and is edging me towards just shutting off from Scottish football - I probably would in fact, if it weren't for the love of Rangers that I have.

    Champions League

    We’ve always known they’re deluded though. the same Celtic that for about a dozen years could barely buy an away goal in Europe ? Lol

    [FT] Rangers 0 - 0 St Johnstone

    Kamara looks like he will be a very decent addition. Strong, pacy, skilful, makes good decisions. Glad we have h im on a 4.5 yr deal.

    Kamara looks very confident here - some very tidy skills on the ball.

    [FT] Rangers 0 - 0 St Johnstone

    pedant alert.... Kamara's subsequent shot was actually stopped by Fostrer, who then clears.

    Kamara looks quite pacy too, which is nice.
  14. He was wanted down south a couple of years ago by a very well thought of Academy - rejected it because he has unfinished business at Rangers and is a Rangers man.

    Allan McGregor's two game ban stands

    1. Being from a Celtic background doesn't mean there is conflict of interest. 2. "most likely" isn't grounds for conflict of interest. I couldn't agree more that the person playing that role should have no club affiliations. IF they continue with the role then it needs to not only be impartial but to be seen to be impartial (which covers point 2 above). The system in England works far better because their Association don't also hold positions with clubs. The SFA is archaic. It should be filled with professional people who don't have any ulterior motives for any one team. Looking to improve and enhance the game for the betterment of ALL association clubs, not just one. But turkeys wont ever vote for Xmas.
