There is rightly huge rage on here at Murray’s tax …

Comment on It Takes Two to Tangle by RyanGosling.

There is rightly huge rage on here at Murray’s tax shenanigans. Where is the anger at the fact that Craig Whyte just decided not to pay tax?! Thing is, when someone owns or runs a club as is widely recognised here the actions of that persons are legally the actions of the club. The indisputable fact is we were screwed by Craig Whyte, as well as David Murray, and that has to be recognised as well.

Principle is all.

On that basis, I hope all avoided tax is reclaimed.

Thing is, and we are possibly going beyond the scope of the blog now, the law is the law. That these people managed to, legally, according to the UTT, avoid tax, speaks volumes to how poor not Rangers but the government were. Tax to me means one thing and one thing only when I see it deducted from my wage. If you complain about the tax, don’t use the NHS. Don’t phone the police. Don’t phone the fire brigade. Don’t turn up on Remembrance Sunday. Because tax is our way of contributing to a fair society. I abhor tax avoidance or evasion, and draw no distinction between the two. If you try to avoid paying your fair share, you are a **** who wants to be rich and doesn’t care about his fellow man. I’m rambling I know, and none of this makes sense. But I love the honour Rangers pay to our armed forces and detest the fact that we have tried to avoid paying for them. I’d like to slap (Sir) David Murray, pure and simple. He destroyed my club, my faith in them, and my faith in knights of the realm.

You and I have crossed swords in the past.

I think your point three above is perfect. HMRC will make no money from Rangers. But they may make a fortune from proving that Rangers were wrong. As a taxpayer, I hope they win

That is a very good article I think. In particular I haven’t heard the quote there from Paul Murray before, made in around 2012, which I thought was a very good statement and it’s a pity we haven’t heard more like that coming from within Rangers.

As Allyjambo alluded to, I think we’re screwed. The management in place at Board level at Ibrox is nothing but an utter embarrassment on an ongoing basis, and the statements being fired out left right and centre are humiliating. 

I do do think the appointment of Mr Gerrard is an ambitious one that certainly captured my imagination, if nothing else he should have the respect of the players and hopefully we won’t have them acting up as much as in recent years. But even if he manages to turn out a winning side (games, unlikely trophies will be winnable for the foreseeable) I just fear that would bring out the worst in the Board. Oh look we’ve won a few games, let’s chuck millions more into it. That kind of thinking. Which would just make a bad situation worse. 

So so team wise I’m quite excited to see what happens in the immediate future. Off the pitch it continues to be farcical, humiliating and quite frankly I don’t understand why nobody either within Rangers or at the SFA has told Dave King to shut his unbearable mouth.

There were a huge number of posters claiming Steven Gerrard would not actually take up the post as Rangers manager. Now that he has, have any of you changed your minds regarding why he is involved?

Easyjambo – thanks, a very interesting reply. I deliberately chose Dundee United in my question to Wottpi because I know it is not the club he supports. The reason for my question was because people are asking what do Rangers (a club most posters in question do not support) provide to the Scottish game, therefore I was interested in what other clubs provide to the game that Rangers do not.

Allyjambo – that was basically my point. If Rangers had been found out early doors, made to pay up and rapped firmly on the knuckles, they wouldn’t have folded. They wouldn’t have won as many titles, sure, but would have remained solvent. Possibly.

Also BigBoab1916 I just noticed this gem:

”Lawman, DBD,SlimJim and RG grow up FFS, death is a natrual processs inthe circle of life.”

I notice I am in there. Would you care to justify this please? As it seems you are slandering me with absolutely no just cause whatsoever.

Constructive point BigBoab1916. Pathetic, subservient, gullible. Quite insulting really. Are you just here to call us names?
