Regular readers will have noted that I was of a mind to cut Keith Jackson some slack in 2018. Left to his own devices he can occasionally rise above his colleagues whom continue to be in the thrall of Yuanker Traynor. A point in case is Gary Ralston who thinks that buying Yuanker lunch keeps him close to the new club, when all it actually does is highlight the fact that he is a Level Five lickspittle and a peddler of fake news.
Yuanker’s influence on the SMSM has never failed to amaze me. Traynor was not a journalist in the true sense of the word. He was a member of the original Laptop Loyal, recruited for his support of Rangers and the Huns without the bus fare of Airdrie. Sir Bribe & Lie sent him succulent morsels of PR Pishery on a regular basis which he pawned off as exclusives. Traynor grew fat on Murray’s skewed narrative. A journalist would have unearthed the $1,000,000 cash bribe by the latter to secure Lawrence Marlborough’s equity in Rangers. It fell to your humble correspondent to reveal this exclusively on this site. I have been assured that Sir Bribe & Lie is an avid reader of The Sitonfence Speakeasy. I do not anticipate a writ for libel as my narrative is one hundred per cent accurate and true.
Jackson has now confirmed that Regan was sacked despite the best efforts of the bumbling Alan McRae and the odious slime bag that is Rod Petrie trying to save his scrawny neck. His immediate resignation was demanded. It was not optional.
McRae quite incredibly has slithered up the greasy pole from Cove Rangers. The Tax Justice Network authors could not understand how someone as bumbling as McRae could be elevated from Cove Rangers to be the President of the corrupt cabal who are incapable of fair play. The hard-line Hun that is McRae baulked at presenting Scott Brown with the Scottish Cup. Had he worn the white gloves of his Orange Lodge no-one would have been surprised. How far has this fuckwit travelled on the basis of a knuckle shuffle!
Move – on Petrie does not want us to know what part he played in the corrupt 5 Way Agreement. Too late Regan lickspittle as I published drafts 1, 2 and final draft 6 which exposed your briefing of Charles Green on the QT.
McRae & Petrie were outgunned by Mike Mulraney of Alloa; Partick Thistle chairman Ian Maxwell; Scottish Amateor FA supremo Thomas McKeown; and non-executive directors Gary Hughes and Ana Stewart.
I am assured by my most valued source and confidante that my blogs influenced their thinking. However they won’t like what I have to say next:
“Why are the chairmen of minnow clubs and the amateur game the big swinging dicks of Scottish football?”
I have campaigned tirelessly to have the SFA disbanded. If the best they can muster is Cove Rangers, Alloa and Partick Thistle then I’m pushing against an open door.
McRae and Petrie should follow Regan out the door. They alone have maintained his power base for the best part of eight years. They have been complicit in every back room deal that Regan brokered. Did Regan get his Yes Men to buy in to a controversial series of friendlies in Peru and Mexico?
If one dines with Caesar one should perish with Caesar.
Jackson’s colleague Scott McDermott evidently thought that a quick polish of the arch criminal’s knob would stand him in good stead with Yuanker Traynor. Traynor has been holed below the gout line by the Morelos fake news. He is as odious as his paymaster Dave King.
There could be a grain of truth in the prospect of King spending more time in Scotland. I’m indebted to CC for the following which he posted on my Twitter site (@sitonfence):
It’s important to note that King is not appealing his Company Law transgressions. His shell game insulted the intelligence of the City Watchdog and some of the real big swinging dicks in the square mile who had to sit through a spurious appeal in the company of King’s consigliere, the bent brief that is James Blair.
King, quite incredibly, is appealing the right of The Court of Session to give the City Watchdog teeth. The Takeover and Mergers Executive have never encountered a criminal like King before. They will soon be making an example of him. Should King remain the chairman of RIFC, the holding company is finished. Even Metro Bank will shun them.
We might not have to await until the 28th to see King grubbing in the dirt. He has until close of business today to present grounds for appeal and eight days later his counsel will have to identify the case law which supports this appeal.
I read Lord Bannatyne’s thirty-page judgment three times. He crossed the t’s and dotted the i’s. He covered at length the only bone of contention tried on by King’s Counsel.
The Ides of March will soon be upon us.
