    I‘m assuming he means anybody else’s appointments.

    Absolutely not.

    Most things in life require making a payment.

    Why not a GP appointment?

    Most things can be self diagnosed or medicated via a pharmacy but, obviously, if there is a persistent problem, pain or bleed, continuous cough, etc., then a GP visit is adviseable.

    The fact that so much paracetamol is prescribed is indicative of frivolous appointments.

    A small fee will, at the very least, make people stop and think before booking the appointment.

    Just seems sensible. No big deal.

    As long as Javid and The Team use the same rationale for privatisation as they did for Royal Mail, and the train network, then everything will be just fine*. 

    Here we go again, cripple a system with financial cuts, watch as things get worse, attack the system as being 'unfit', punt the line that private capital will alleviate the problems. Pick your time to get your disgusting ideas maximum coverage. And so it begins.

    * Disaster.

    Paying to see your GP is quite common in many other countries including socialist ones.

    I think it’s a good idea and would help to eliminate frivolous appointments. It would also help to engender a spirit of self help which is sadly lacking in the UK.

    Well done indeed. Despite all the abuse they’ve received on here and from some Patrons they stepped up and saved the club. Hopefully some people will reflect upon their previous behaviour as there’s every chance we will need to go cap in hand time and time again unless those in charge get a handle on things.

    We don’t actually know but it does seem a reasonable assumption as to where the funds have come.
    If that assumption is correct, then I totally agree with your sentiment.

    Not so sure.  Read the statement again.

    At no point does it say the funding gap has been plugged.  What it says is the auditors have said the club can present unqualified accounts.  That is not the same thing as the funding gap being closed.

    Interesting line that we've only met 98% of LAST SEASON'S income.  I was under the impression we had set ambitious income targets this season.  My reading of the statement is that we've barely reached last season's income levels never mind anything beyond that.  Indeed the statement says there is still £600k to find between now and the end of the season.

    So no, I don't think the gap has been filled.

    I see what you mean but I don’t think the Auditors would have signed the Accounts unqualified unless they had cast iron guarantees that the club had the funds to see out the season. In other words they must have documentation to say that shareholders were giving the necessary loans to meet the clubs liabilities up till May 2023. Looks like the old MSG have stumped up or given guarantees. From earlier statements I thought that, without new funding, we would be running out of cash about now.

    Presumably, these loans will come with ‘conditions’ regarding repayment.

    Anyway, great news and the AGM will be interesting.

    Its also up to the rest of us to dig as deep as possible to get us out of this awful league.

    I follow Britain Elects also and noticed this, I really do find it odd when other opinion polls over the last few months have had us anywhere from 52-56% Although I probably know more No voters than Yes, I find it staggering that No would be this high after the last 10 years.

    Get on with your life.

    Its never going to happen.

    Huge task now ahead for John and Paul to ensure we can qualify for and compete in the playoffs.

    Striker, winger and centre mid required at a minimum as we are now short of both quality and numbers there.

    His earlier signings have been ‘left field’ ones.

    Burrell, Lawal and Rowe right out of the blue.

    Maybe he can do the same again?

    Hugely disappointing news- Mcglynn must have his head in his hands.

    The pressure’s really on now simply to ensure the squad is as strong as it was at the start of the window. Starting to look threadbare numbers wise too.

    This is terrible news but that’s the loan market, I suppose.

    Government bonds, diverting money from nuclear bombs and submarines, useless aircraft carriers, Crossrail and HS2 type projects that only really serve London, a monetary policy to suit the Scottish economy rather than the South East of England, there's a long list.

    Scotland has paid nothing towards HS2.

    Scotland received Barnett consequentials relating to Crossrail as part of the overall departmental budgets.

    Regarding monetary policy, I thought the SG was going to use the pound which means monetary policy and interest rates set by B of E?

    The other stuff you mention doesn’t come to much and is well covered by the subsidies from London and the South East.

    It's because we're not independent that we're desperately trying to raise more funds for public services that have been starved to death thanks to the tories since 2010.


    That doesn’t make sense?

    If you were independent where do you intend to raise the extra funds from?

    I don't get why she annoys you so much. She used the isolation of New Zealand to close the borders and allow restriction free life for most of New Zealand until vaccination reached enough of the population, then opened up again. Where did she go wrong? They ended up with a fraction of covid deaths compared to the UK or even Sweden.

    But at some cost to normal life!

    Was it worth it?

    I say NO.

    I think the opposite. If the club were about to go pop everyone would rally then. That is what happened before and history shows that is what happens at other clubs. The irony is this scheme is there to stop the crisis but not enough are backing it sadly. 

    Exactly correct.

    That’s why the directors need to be totally upfront regarding whether they have got the finance in place to see us through or not. If they don’t have it, tell us and we’ll rally round. What bothers me is the delay in having the AGM and the silence.

    You realise there is nothing stopping you from buying shares in your own name individually if you want to? If that’s what you want to do it’s totally your call obviously but I’d much rather my contribution went under the FFS umbrella, the point is strength in numbers where the group as a whole owns a significant share in the club giving the supporters actual power, owning a small shareholding individually doesn’t do that. The FSS should be looked upon as a supporters union, the more members the bigger the shareholding, the bigger the influence and the larger financial contribution which essentially filters through to (in theory) being able to afford better players in the pitch. 

    The minimum you can buy is 1000 shares costing £400.

    People actually get paid for this.

    I'd rather not contribute to their salary by clicking on the link.

    Deedes is an excellent sketch writer.

    His job is to poke fun at MP’s at Westminster.

    If you read the article, he ridicules Douglas Ross and Alister Jack and quite a few Labour MP’s.

    Its very noticeable that the SNP cultists on here seem to suffer from ‘humour deficit’.

    Why would being Scottish influence his opinion?


    Totally irrelevant but I merely mentioned  it as some on here look on the Supreme Court as being English or Conservative.

    Just scroll back a bit.
