Comment posted Devo Plus: enter the Trojan Horse by Willie Hutchison.
The Rangers finacial collapse , as that of other clubs, simply reflects the wider economic system where banks and many other businesses are founded upon underlying insolvency masked by a labyrinth of complicated financial procedures.
Selling tommorow’s income for money today (Ticketus) or bank derivetives or bringing exagerated future income projections for cash not yet recieved ( WIP) are all part and parcel of the edefice upon which all too many businesses are founded.
That’s what a government culture of light hand or non existent regulation delivers.

- CKD Galbraith say new tax and support proposals create minefield for sporting businesses
Can’t quite see how people are opposed to levying rates on a business because they are a ” sporting business ” whilst they’re quite happy for rates to be levied on other more ordinary businesses.
Moreover, with sporting estates attracting clientele or corporates who are very often mega well heeled, the logic of railing against these businesses paying tax whilst wee Mrs McGlumphy with the corner shop does is quite iniquitous.
Well done the SNP.
- Michael Russell’s message to Argyll
I’m surprised that you didn’t contact the UN Secretary General, the President of the United States and everyone in between Treble T.
You are clearly a man who focuses on the extremely important issues of life to the exclusion of all else.
Fair play to you Sir.
- Gordon Brown to stand down from Westminster at General Election
Newsroom, how on Earth can anyone say that Gordon Brown is going out on a ” high ”
This is the guy who presided over the collapse of the British banking system.
The guy, like Darling is getting out before he is chucked out.
- Retiral at the first fence – Salmond will not challenge Danny Alexander
And I suspect a scalping there will be Newsroom – but for whom will the bells toll.
The SNP are in the strongest position they have ever been in and if the current polls remain, which is more than likely, there will be none or next to no Labour and Lib Dem scalps left in Scotland.
Salmond will be a fantastic asset to the post May 2015 phalanx of SNP MPs that will be heading to Westminster and I think everyone would love to see the big beast back in Westminster – save maybe David Cameron who will by now be thinking about ordering super strength pampers.
- Possible game changer: Prestwick Trumped for Turnberry – and more?
This does sound like a goodly dose of marketing blurb – not that that is always a bad thing.
Yes Prestwick would be an ideal place for upmarket well heeled golfers to land their private jets, but so is Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen.
It takes a lot of landing fees to run an airport and surely no one is suggesting that well heeled golfers will sustain Prestwick Airport as part of the Trump Empire.
What is most likely is that Trump with his involvement with Turnberry would like to market Prestwick as part of the Trump Estate…….and you can imagine marketing along the lines of trumpeting the benefits of gatewaying Trump Turnberry through Trump Airport.
I mean John Lennon doesn’t own Liverpool Airport nor does John F Kennedy in New York – but they carry the name.
So to get this in perspective, what I suspect we’re looking at is the Donald wanting to loan Prestwick the Trump name to promote his involvement in Turnberry.
It might help tourism at Turnberry, but so might marketing Prestwick as Rabbie Burn’s home airport where he used to fly in to play golf at Rabbie Burns Turnberry Golf Course.
There, and here was me thinking the Donald had chucked Scotland – but now he’s back, maybe he should lend his name to windmills – because he probably realizes now that he’s not the only windmill in town.
