    Comment on Dear Mr Bankier by fishnish.

    JC – Ancient Mariner…

    I wondered about the 'barred sun', being unable to recall any personal sightings or reading about such a solar event.

    I found the following explanation of the poetic lines…

    "The Sailors at first take great joy in the Mariner’s announcement that another ship is approaching, since they believe that they are going to be saved. But that joy quickly turns to horror, as they begin to question how the ship could possibly be approaching without a breeze or tide. As the ship approaches close it seems to be the skeleton of a ship, creating a “dungeon-grate,” barred effect as it passes in front of the red setting sun. "

    Dear Mr Bankier
    easyjambo:

    King is expected to go into the witness box later. It appears that King's side is putting up a defence using "men's rea" in that King's understanding of what he was told was different from TOPs so he didn't know what he was doing /not doing was wrong.

    ……………………………………………………………..

    Is my memory flawed in recalling that Three Bears tried to warn King off of the route he was heading down, because it ran precisely the risks of falling into the trap he now lies in – and that, thus, he KNEW it was wrong?

     

    Or am I missing a certain finessing here…?

    Tangled Up In Blue by Stephen O’Donnell (Book Review)
    Easyjambo…..

    “And in scotland, rangers went into administration and liquidation in 2012 with the club's assets being bought by a separate company – sevco scotland ltd – which changed its name to the rangers football club limited.

    the team plays in the scottish premiership but even today some fans consider the old rangers fc to be gone forever.”

    ALL of the above doesn’t now appear on your link.

    it has also gone forever, just like Rangers.

    I guess a PR man had a wee palpitation on reading the truth and had words….

    Couple of headlines from The Sun;

    ……………………………………………

    Thing is Stevie… 

    It being The Sun, you always know it's gaunie be shite that's printed.

    Untruths, made-up stuff and flummery.  It's a comic for kiddies.

    I spotted the following on Twitter this morning, my heart sang for a second, then realised it was a bit of Sun "reportage".

     

    It's no gaunie happen.  wink

    Why were St. Mirren refused a UEFA Licence, when their ratings were the same as , for example, St. Johnstone, and better than Dundee?

    …………………………………..

    The fans/Buddies, paid for the building/installation of a new platform for wheelchair users and other disabled people, which was under shelter.

    This took out a shedload of seats, reducing capacity to under the specified 8000 which UEFA seem to require.

    capacity now currently 7937, IIRC.

    Could be simply amended, I would think.

    Wanted Dundee United to get promoted today but maybe next year. John Beaten was hopeless as the ref today

    I remained determinedly neutral throughout ,until I remembered that our Chick, Clyde-estuary sailor and bon viveur of such wealth as to consider £90-odd grand as about enough to fund 'a good night out', is a passionate life-long supporter of St Mirren.

    And then I thought: naw, he isnae.( but, fair do's, he did insist that the Al Johnstone  'nod' took place!)

    And I returned to my neutral position.

    ……………………………..

    Aye, it's a great tragedy that the bigger club, favourite of so many from the SMSM, did not prevail and allow DUFC to return to the league in which they belong

    And despite them being aided by abject refereeing from, as Bill1903 aptly names him, Beaten – who was unable to find a bent rule by which he could deny St Mirren those defining shoot-out penalties.

    My Old Man 'tears of emotion' are now dried, palpitations subsided.. so thought I'd pop on here to quote a Buddie on our forum – about that refereeing performance.

    "Think what we witnessed yesterday with the referee was the SFA in full corrupt mode.

    Never a penalty
    Perfectly good goal chopped off
    Pawlett should’ve walked
    Connolly should’ve walked
    Nazon never a red

    Anybody see the footage of Doncaster when the cameras were panning the crowd? Not even applauding his play off champions. Devastated. GIRUY!!"

    I know we can all be a wee bit partisan, but my 'objective'crying assessment of the refereeing matched the above. 

    The game was very poorly refereed.
