Last quote by Kevin McKenna

The South Americans have had a disastrous World Cup campaign and are grimly hanging on to the hope of getting through – welcome to our world. Finally, Argentinian football fans now know what it’s like to be Scottish. The country that gave us Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi could only manage a 0-0 draw against Peru in Buenos Aires last Thursday night in their World Cup qualifier. Thus, its qualification prospects “hang by a thread”. Hanging by a thread has been the default status of Scotland’s qualification prospects for any competition we have ever entered. If Scotland found themselves in a qualifying group comprising only itself and no other our prospects would still “hang by a thread”.feedback

The most recent Kevin McKenna’s quote is: “Why is the city dithering over a suitable memorial to the events that brought in the first Irish immigrants?More than 150 years after starving Irish people first sought sanctuary in Glasgow, it seems the city’s acceptance of them remains a qualified one. The bulk of those who settled here had fled the horrors of the Great Famine (An Gorta Mór) in Ireland between 1845 and 1852. During this period, a million of Ireland’s poorest people starved to death and a million more were forced to flee to other countries to ensure that their families survived.”.

May 20 2017 - Obesity

Children should be encouraged to walk to school to help us tackle the childhood obesity problem. It was surely only a matter of time – that being a commodity Doctor Who possesses in abundance – before he would get to encounter space zombies on his intergalactic travels. Thus in last week’s episode we saw Peter Capaldi putting the boot into a colony of the intergalactic undead and emerge with nary a ruffle of his big hair and long coat.feedback

Apr 29 2017 - Labour Party

Years of bad management and lack of vision have left the SNP and Tories poised to expunge the left from north of the border. No other city in the UK has embodied the success and aspirations of the Labour movement more than Glasgow. And now, as Labour faces up to the reality of spending a generation in the political wilderness, no city has come to epitomise the party’s decline more than this one. At Westminster, Jeremy Corbyn is facing a reckoning; in Glasgow, the party he leads is contemplating an apocalypse.feedback

Apr 15 2017 - Scottish independence

The liberal elite blames the church and alcohol yet does nothing themselves about deprivation. For several years, the Benedictine monks of Buckfast Abbey in Devon have rendered a free service to the elite who run Scotland. The monks, who have lived and worked in one of England’s most green and pleasant corners for around 1,000 years, manufacture Buckfast tonic wine, a sweet draught with a belligerent finish that leaves the palate thinking it has just done 15 rounds with Mike Tyson.feedback

Apr 01 2017 - Scottish independence

Concentrating on fighting against independence has wiped out the party’s credibility. There have been many staging posts in Scottish Labour’s descent into political oblivion. The journey only really picked up speed, though, during the first independence referendum campaign, when it grotesquely misjudged the instincts of many of its core supporters who favoured self-determination while remaining loyal to the party.feedback

Mar 18 2017 - Scottish independence

The call for a second referendum has been triggered by the high-handed and disdainful attitude of the UK government. The uninitiated, on first encountering an SNP conference, might think that they were already stepping on to independent turf and that only the flourish of a civil servant’s pen was required to make it official. After two or three days of being held in the embrace of such boundless optimism you sometimes find yourself desperately seeking a dose of misery just to feel normal and Scottish once more; a Pink Floyd album perhaps, or a video of Great Scotland World Cup disasters.feedback
