Hearts of Medium Density Fibreboard


Recommended Posts

The Hertz, ken, issues an apology -to the world, well, as far as Port Seton, possibly- because The Sash My Father Wore, was played over the PA at Tynecastle, yesterday. A song which celebrates a Protestant  Institution was aired, yes, yesterday, which, as we a' ken, was Reformation Day (although one would be gey hard pushed to find reference to that in contemporary Scotland).

 

Heart of Midlothian wishes to address an incident that took place at Tynecastle Park on Sunday.

 

The stadium hosted the Foundation of Hearts’ Open Day, which celebrated the phenomenal milestone of Hearts becoming the biggest fan-owned football club in the UK.

Despite the weather, a wonderful day was had by thousands of fans who got to explore Tynecastle, going behind the scenes and visiting areas of the stadium that are rarely seen.

During the day’s festivities, an incident occurred whereby a song was played over the PA system. The song in question has no connection to Hearts and it has no place at Tynecastle. As soon as the club was made aware of the issue the PA system was switched off, the incident investigated and swiftly concluded. Club officials apologised at the time to those inside the stadium who brought the matter to their attention.

The club would now like to further extend that apology to our wider fanbase after videos of the incident were shared on social media. Procedures have already been implemented that will ensure such an incident is never repeated.

The FoH Open Day was an extremely proud occasion for the club and we would like to, once again, thank our supporters who continue to back every aspect of the club in tremendous fashion. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Gorgie for this Saturday’s cinch Premiership encounter with Dundee United.

Given the country's current voting inclinations and general abandonment of all the great things Presbyterianism did for Scotland, this is (sadly) unsurprising.

I hope you're not counting predestination as "one of the great things Presbyterianism did for Scotland" as I was born into a Baptist family and never baptised; which no doubt means that my fate is sealed.

I wouldn't mind betting that those who feel the need to apologise have no idea of the words of 'The Sash..'. If they had, I don't see what they could object to; a grand old folk tune celebrating a military victory. Unfortunately, some people only see what they want to see.

The moron needs educating. 

Scottish schools aren't the place for that these days, which brings me back to my original point.  

 

Scottish nationalism benefits from an uneducated populace, particularly one with a proclivity for victimhood.
