The Freeman of the Land……..Nothing but Snake oil

January 23, 2014

I have been thinking about this subject for quite some time. It is an aside to my Independence material that I am cautiously working on slowly but surely; unfortunately time constraints at the present time are considerable.

Anyway, a number of my friends in the recent past have been absorbed by the phenomena of ‘Freeman of the Land’. Many, on the spot, will have a convincing argument and at times I have been caught off-guard in my aims to debunk the theory.

Instead, I have decided to sit down for 10 and actually think the theory through.


Calm Doon….

In your face: Lennon was adamant his side were hard done to against Hearts

Another week, another failure?, another bad decision and another ‘Tweet’.

I do not usually make much remark on Celtic. I do not support the team and therefore it is not really my place to comment on their affairs. Nothing Celtic or Neil Lennon do has any outcome on me; but after quite some time I feel it is time to have a small snigger and a friendly jibe.


Jelly & Ice-Cream ~ One Of Them ‘No Wayyyyy’ Moments.

February 17, 2012

Stumbled across this on my travels today. You probably couldn’t make it up to be honest. If i have missed something here then please feel free to fill me in as i proclaim absolute innocent to the ‘Jelly & Ice-Cream’ debate.

I was sure (and still am!!) that it was nothing more than a friendly jibe towards Rangers in their current situation, albeit one that didn’t strike me as particularly witty.

Nevertheless, as I say, I stumbled across this today – I am sure it will give someone somewhere, something to say. I admit it is all very convenient, to an extent that it made me chuckle a little at the coincidence.

I’m sure not everyone will take the innocent, coincidental view that I have.

Call me warped, but I genuinely laughed out loud at this headline and all of the connotations that it comes with. A light break from the tediousness of Rangers & Admin. (Well, for me anyway)


Sorry, it would appear that i was not being clear enough here. For the purpose of those on (yes, i do find out where i am linked from) – I do not suggest that ‘Jelly & Ice-cream’ is an IRA related thing – I was merely pointing out the rather funny coincidence that I am sure will rattle more that one,small minded cage. 


Glasgow Rangers Darlington Na Na Na Na Na Naaa Na

January 29, 2012

A story will soon develop here. It’s something that i have been looking into for a while through various sources.     A present i am just trying to decide how to go about this. Some interesting thoughts and ideas from floating this idea around various internet platforms and professionals.



Committed To The Core – The Passing Of Steve Jobs And A Lasting Legacy

October 6, 2011

I have never been a small or particularly slim individual. In fact, to be brutally honest at times in my life i have had the aerodynamic properties of a bungalow and the coordination of an American bombing raid.

I have always put huge effort into running, for example. My arms and legs swing around like the pistons on a frantic steam engine but despite this it would require a theodolite to ascertain that i am actually moving forwards.

This made me a bit of a duffer at school sports.


Christmas presents, Bahhh Humbug!

October 5, 2011

So, the time of year is once again approaching when many men and women,boys and girls will be exchanging gifts for Christmas. Yes, between friends and family we will be exchanging copious amounts of games consols, games,bikes,toy cars and inevitibly this year : Iphone/pads.

This is a fine custom and tradition and one that i have most certainly benefited from over my 26years.

There is however, a further present – the office/school present.


My Best man Speech

October 5, 2011

Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen – I do use the term ‘gentlemen’ loosely, as I’ve heard that some of you here today are actually Celtic supporters.

Let me first say that the bridesmaids look absolutely smashing today – Gemma and Danielle, and only rightly outshone by our bride, Linzi. I’m sure you’ll agree with me gentlemen, today is a sad day for single men, as another beauty leaves the available list, and ladies, I’m sure you’ll agree that today’s passing by without  as much as a ripple.

May aswell start a blog as you mean to go on, with a gripe.

I have heard of  the wordpress website for a long time. I was often humoured by the obvious fact that it is littered with academics each purposing their own view with extensive background knowledge in a subject.

Well, i do not have such knowledge and nor do i care to back up my often abrasive or factually evasive rants.

Things rile me, sometimes- and often – this can be something remarkably simple.

My first problem: signing up to wordpress only to realise that the background ‘themes’ on offer are about as exciting as the academic lecturing that bore me start my own blog in the first place.

‘Blogging’. Interesting word, one that i can only presume was developed within my lifetime and one that should surely insinuate some form of opinion from the author if not personal experience.  Not mearly a regurgetation of textbook quotes by subject matter.
