Looks absolutely brilliant! Wish I had been there to enjoy the fun.

  • No nationalist politicisation of the Games?
    I do agree with you in one respect Sceptic. Why have a Proclaimers song performed without the Proclaimers? Surely, we could have afforded the real thing!
  • No nationalist politicisation of the Games?
    I stand corrected, however, I did watch it live and don’t remember seeing half of those shots. I can admit this is perhaps my error as it wasn’t until the following day, a video taken from within the crowd went out on social media that looks as if there is a great deal more flags. If I can find the video again, I will post a link.

    I did forget to say in my original post, maybe Newsie could investigate the reports that the MOD were asked to provide a helicopter to fly over Parkhead so Salmond could jump out James Bond style with a big saltire parachute with “Yes” on it?

  • No nationalist politicisation of the Games?
    Wow! Been so busy hiding in the hills from the tartan overdose I missed this article!

    Maybe because I am probably one of the commenters who lives a bit nearer to Glasgow than most, I have a completely different take on this?

    1. Opening ceremony – Cringetastic! Highlights were the games being opened by 2 openly gay people and a male/male kiss seen by billions around the world. Although Karen “Shotgun Nostrils” Dunbar does my head in, it was a good idea to have them open the games considering its illegal to be gay in 42 of the 53 Commonwealth Countries. I also hear Eck has the rainbow flag flying instead of the saltire for the duration of the games.

    2. Red, white and blue over the Girodome. Most Weegies see a totally different symbolism in this.

    3. Wheel out the oldest, wrinkliest, auld duffer you can find to prove Scots are not genetically wired to die before they are 50. No I don’t mean Sir Chris Hoy’s uncle, I’m talking Rod Stewart. Sounds no bad for a guy that gargles with razor blades.

    If you really want a story – ask yourselves why the Scottish crowd’s reaction to our team entering the stadium was not shown on the BBC? I’ve seen video on the dreaded Social Media of that moment and there is a sea of Saltires and Lion Rampants being waved all over the stadium. Why wasn’t that shown?

  • National newspaper lambasts SNP mess in Argyll
    And so the spotlight of the National media shines again on Argyll…

    and as usual, not for a good reason.

    Lets just say it like it is – Local Government is not and has not been working here for some time. The upper echelons of the council needs completely gutted, Councillors and Officers alike and in their place, something that actually works for the people of Argyll in the best interests of the populous and not for their own selfish benefit.

  • Am dram wardrobe for Scottish team’s Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony costumes
    Its taken me a couple of days to feel brave enough to venture near the internet or the tv and come forward. I am a victim of ocular assault.

    After washing my eyeballs with bleach (from Lidl) I am dismayed to see that my first impressions of the Commonwealth Costumes are correct. Who knew there was a tartan named “Puke”?

    I would love to know what that wee woman was smoking when she designed that. It certainly wasn’t kippers.

    It truly is awful. Supporting Scotland in any sport is embarrassing enough, but this takes the Tunnock’s teacake.

    Is it not too late to change it to tracksuits and baseball caps? The unofficial uniform of Greater Glasgow anyway? And it would be the first time a tracksuit would have been worn in the city by someone actually taking part in sport.

    I think I shall spent the 23rd of July hiding up in the hills with a paper bag over my head pretending to be a wild haggis.
