Rosyth Naval yard’s proximity to Dunfermline has no bearing on this article. The ‘Going Nuclear‘ of the title comes from a tweet by Barcabhoy. However as we avidly awaited him blowing the lid on match fixing in Scottish football he evidently demurred. Paul Brennan is also apparently ‘in the know‘ but won’t open the football with the codes.
I have the highest regard for Mr. Brennan. I also hold another peer James Forrest in high regard. James described me as a Conspiracy Theorist Par Excellence in one of his pieces. However I’m not a flat-earth advocate living in a lead-encased room with a direct line to a lunar base of my imagination.
I contend that the Apollo Lunar Landings were an elaborate hoax and that the astronauts who engaged in this hoax never left a lower Earth orbit. The Russians tracked their orbits and were quick to dismiss the U.S. Cold War triumphalism. However the truth was subsumed by a much more seductive rhetoric. Those who wrapped themselves in The Stars & Stripes and chanted U.S.A. had no idea that they had been hoodwinked by the CIA and Stanley Kubrick. The former assassinated JFK from a building adjacent to the School Book Depository and from a vantage point behind a wooden fence on a grassy knoll. It was a triangulated ‘turkey shoot.’ When the FBI uncovered the ‘death squad‘ that had been assembled to assassinate foreign leaders, with Fidel Castro at the top of their hit list, they coerced the members of Warren Commission to pin the blame on Oswald. The ‘Home of the brave‘ had to be shielded from America’s foreign policy realpolitik.
I look at the facts and piece them together. I pierce the corporate veil. I deconstruct the sophistry of Anglo-American foreign policy. I don’t accept anything at face value. I don’t accept accidents of convenience. MI6 assassinated Diana Spencer as she represented a clear and present danger to the House of Saxe-Coburg. A threat as credible as the anti-Germanic sentiment in The Great War which prompted King George The Fifth to change their name by Royal proclamation to The House of Windsor in 1917.
It is my firm conviction that Dunfermline FC conspired with Rangers FC to subvert the result of a football match so as to provide the one goal advantage which gifted the title to Alex McLeish and his EBT All Stars on the final day of season 2002/2003.
My assertion in yesterday’s article, which was rich in factual insights on what passes for the media in Scotland, was challenged by the following comment:
You’re suggesting it was a fix but where is the proof? I’m not for one minute claiming you are wrong JJ but your claim of a fix needs to be backed up by proof surely? Otherwise you are just giving the anti JJ folk a reason to mock your articles.”
The anti-JJ folk include those who state that my nine-years old daughter is a child prositute who is going to be brutally gang-raped in short order. She is then going to be kicked to death as they engage in an impromptu ‘Bouncy Bouncy.’ I could contact Police Scotland but all they would do is pass on her details to the Orange Order paramilitaries. Just as they did when passing on my details to same.
Police Scotland are at the forefront of these evil sects and work hand in glove with the most vile in society. In my adopted country the general rule of thumb is not to call the police under any circumstances as all they will do is mug you. Police Scotland would mug you while singing The Billy Boys.
The estimable Mr. Brennan of CQN fame wrote:
“CELTIC PARANOIA? All in the mind? A developing story.
Imagine what would be discovered if you were to pilfer through an old shipwreck of an East Coast football club that had somehow managed to make it back on to dry land?
Discoloured, creased and unframed pennants of a bygone era when your beloved club was a European force.
Old stained photographs of legends who would turn in their graves on account of the underhand dealings that brought their club to its knees.
Frayed, unwashed, matchworn jerseys, embroidered with famous Scottish Cup final appearances under a crest that once graciously adorned the chest of 1960s icons.
And piles and piles of incriminating paperwork.
Well, this is Scottish football after all. In going through the remnants of a once-proud bastion of community spirit, the new captain of this vessel has unearthed damaging evidence that would, without question bring the Scottish game into disrepute.
This admission was the subject of a CQN Magazine exclusive last week, and it was our initial intention to blow the story wide open. Until the SFA got in touch and not just the once. The governing body wants to know more. And we had plenty to show them after the work done over the past few months by a senior investigator with a decade of experience at s senior level.
Today, taped interviews and emails have been seized by the powers-that-be at Hampden, and a formal period of preliminary investigation is now underway.
This case is now live, and, as such, we are duty-bound to refrain from providing any further details that may prove prejudicial to the ongoing SFA enquiries. What we will say at this stage, however, is that whilst five-way agreements may well prevent title-stripping, the potential outcome of these paranoia-busting revelations might leave our game’s guardians with no other option. No other option could also be read as no other alternative. And this is only the beginning of what is a developing story.”
Mr. Brennan chose his words carefully. Much has been made of the word ‘seized.’ One might reasonably conclude that some of these documents originated at the SFA or SPL. Nothing came of the SFA investigation. Is it not high time that Mr. Brennan put his findings in the public domain? If he has irrefutable proof of match fixing he should publish and be damned. I personally would not hesitate. I would burn the cheats at the stake given half a chance. A fate some have in mind for me, albeit with a burning tyre around my waist twist. Last time I checked I was a social media commentator, not a Mexican Cartel drug mule gone rogue.
Mr. Brennan was dismissed as a conspiracy theorist by the Chairman of Dunfermline FC who wrote:
“Tuesday, 8th Aug 2017
Club Chairman, Ross McArthur, would like to make the following statement.
I am extremely disappointed to have to release the following statement, particularly as the subject matter below has proven to be an unnecessary distraction today on the eve of a very important cup match at Ibrox Stadium tomorrow evening.
However, as ever I wish our own supporters to be fully aware of the facts, and put to bed some of the ludicrous accusations that have been put to me today by the wider media. Like most other SPFL Clubs, we were contacted a couple of weeks ago by a number of supporters asking for our club to make a public statement following the review of the recent Rangers Tax Case.
Myself and my fellow Board members took the decision not to do so, as our business practice since taking over the club from the administrators, has always been not to comment on any matters that do not adversely affect Dunfermline Athletic Football Club today. As a club, we still have a lot of bridges to rebuild. However, out of courtesy I believe you should always take the time to respond to someone who has written to our club. Therefore, I liaised with my fellow Board member (and Supporter Liaison Officer), Drew Main and we individually responded to each person who wrote to us.
Most of the emails we received were from DAFC supporters, some were not. In our reply, we tried to be honest as we could and to make the point that we felt it would be entirely hypocritical of us to try and make any mileage by commenting on another Scottish football club, as our own club had itself already brought Scottish football into disrepute, when it went into administration in 2013, and we had to be mindful we were in no position to take the moral high ground.
Without spelling that out, clearly if DAFC could not pay its own staff, players, other clubs and HMRC then most reasonable people would understand that you have brought the game into disrepute.Last week I was then contacted by the SFA, as one of the recipients of the email had clearly not been satisfied with our reply, or was attempting to create an issue, and had asked our governing body to investigate further.
I can confirm that the SFA sent me one email, which I fully responded to the same day, explaining that the recipient was either attempting to make mileage in some way, or had taken our reply out of context. There has been no further dialogue between DAFC and the SFA.
I can also confirm that there was never at any time, reference to former managers, other clubs or previous matches ‘“ this is totally spurious. There are a lot of positive things happening in Scottish football, and there a lot of good people within our respective clubs and at our governing bodies who are working very hard to promote and showcase our national game, and it is disappointing that everyone cannot focus their energy into looking forward, rather than trying to constantly undermine the credibility of our game’.
Would Mr. McArthur like to confirm or deny reports that each and every Dunfermline board member would ask one what school one attended prior to a contract offer being made?
A cynic might conclude that the SFA ‘seized’ the documents on the pretext of mounting an investigation, or that an honest engagement was spiked by Regan and his corrupt sidekicks McRae and Petrie. All the more reason for Mr. Brennan to go to print.
The Rangers EBT All Stars of the 2003 vintage were £80m in debt to “EBTs and $1m bribes ‘R’ Us” aka The Bank of Scotland. RFC were under no pressure from the bankers who like to ‘swing the lead.’ However the same could not be said about Dunfermline who were in financial peril.
It has been alleged that SDM would keep the Bank of Scotland wolves from Dunfermline’s door if Mr. Calderwood did him a solid. Sir Bribe & Lie was pushing against an open door with Hun’s Hun Jimmy Calderwood. The latter is Orange to his very core. His very complexion has a fake-bake orange hue. Nothing like wearing your heart on your sleeve.
There are several reports that DAFC player Derek Stillie is a member of a flute band.
As I have not heard the Netherton Road Flute Band’s rendition of The Famine Song I cannot comment on its efficacy as a motivational tool. Perhaps Derek Stillie could shed some light on the matter.
One eagerly awaits the day when all the available information is in the public domain. What are you waiting for Mr. Brennan?
