  1. prick diners edit ( I'll leave that in but I meant Proclaimers) I think they are interchangeable as names for the two Cs.
  2. Having met you, I have to disagree, you are much less likely to interject into a conversation than into a thread. We have always steered clear of this sort of subject to, whereas, you are more confromtational on here (I am too I guess).
  3. Γεια σας , γεια είμαστε οι Billy Boys Its all Greek to me
  4. Now that there is plenty of evidence for. Lets just say BP9 and I are both 'big' personalities (govanblue can verify) but we can manage to be pretty civil in real life. As long as you have made the appropriate donation to govanblue then we will all have something positive in common (can't remember if I've seen you mentioned on that thread)
  5. Its an incredibly difficult area to use legisaltion in. I'm pretty sure that a miniscule number of people are, genuinely, offended by TBB (or any of the versions). I really think society should 'man up' (or is that sexist?) and lets get back to dealing with real problems rather than ones made up by groups seeking some sort of justification for their own dubious actions.
  6. What insults, just setting out the conclusion that can be drawn from this interaction? I didn't go to Uni, I have a post graduate qualification but obtained it in the real world working and studying at the same time. I am lost how the evidence leads you to an opinion thatyou cannot support in any way other than to call it an opinion?? Must be the University thing. Its only the internet don't take anything personally, I'm sure (like BP9) you aren't anything like your internet persona.
  7. Its a Sunday, its debate day. You should see me get stuck in to Jehovahs Witnesses! Conclusion is you have made an 'opinion' based on not a single piece of evidence so you'll just ignore that presented to you?? The problem is serious though when its leading to Rangers fans being huckled or even jailed for singing songs. That it really does only happen in Scotland (OK maybe North Korea as well) should scare the crap out of you to be honest.
  8. Do you find the Killie, Man United etc etc etc, versions questionable?
  9. What utter Bollocks you are spouting. You cfan't provide a single shred of evidence to support your point can you? Try admitting that and you might be able to claw back from your utterly ridiculous position (based on your political affiliation as much as anything I, and many others, would be left nto surmise). Once again, have you a single shred of evidence to support your contention? A simple yes (with an appropriate link) or no will suffice.
  10. Wrong again: Lamont was jailed under the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012 No 'aggravation' (you really should try to spell check) is mentioned. Once again, provide the evidence to support your contention or you are making shit up to suit your bizarre 'opinion'. you really should quit while you are lagging several miles behind.
  11. I would suggest that the principle of 'sticks and stones' should apply as a starting point. Offence is a personal thing and its nigh on impossible to legislate on that basis its a slippery slope to even try. About the only things I can think of, that would receive widespread support, are innocent victims of atrocities/abuse/accidents but even that i subjective 'one nmans terrorist and all that'. Its likely that someone singing those sort of things will have morals that will lead to them falling foul of other laws. Religion should never ever form part of that sort of legislation.
  12. http://www.<No links to this website>/news/real-life/billy-boys-awful-offensive-song-5961642 http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/je-suis-billy-boy-free-speech-for-football-fans/16774#.V8MGmz9rjIU http://www.heart.co.uk/scotland/news/local/old-firm-fan-jailed/ https://catherinemccall.wordpress.com A police insider told the Evening Times: “Obviously some of these songs are recognisable. But we will be making sure that all officers involved in policing the match are aware of what is acceptable and what is not. If you sing an offensive, sectarian song, we’ll arrest you.” Unless you nhave absolute proof that the reports are incorrect then you are talking shite again. What is it with you and your refusal to believe the evidence presented to you. If you have a single shred of proof that he was doing something else then please produce the evidence. Otherwise accept the, widely, reported version of events and, for once, accept that singing a song can get you arrested.
  13. Arev you saying that Scott Lamont wasn't jailed for singing TBB, even though its the only thing mentioned in the BBC Report? Surely any thuggery by a Rangers fan would be highlighted?
  14. Still refusing to believe the facts!!! A Rangers fan who was arrested for sectarian singing while on his way to attend a game against Celtic has been jailed for four months. Scott Lamont, from Glasgow, was heard singing the words of the Billy Boys song on Cathcart Road on 1 February. The 24-year-old admitted the charge at Glasgow Sheriff Court. He was also given an 18-month football banning order and told his behaviour would not be tolerated. Sheriff Paul Crozier told Lamont's lawyer, Joanne Gray: "Glasgow has developed a good reputation in recent years. "We had the Commonwealth Games last summer, we haven't had an Old Firm game in years. "What happened at the first Old Firm game? People like him let Glasgow down." 'Ruin football' The sheriff described the words to the song as "inflammatory" an said it "could have led to horrendous violence". He told Lamont: "Your conduct on 1 February was the sort of conduct that the authorities had asked football loving fans to refrain from. "A message has to be sent to those people who would choose to ruin football for the vast majority who want to go to these games, that you cannot behave like this. "This sort of behaviour will not be tolerated, certainly not by me." Another man, Alexander Blood, from Saltford in Somerset, was given a community payback order after admitting acting in a racially aggravated manner. Blood swore at police officers and called them "Jock". As part of the order he will be supervised for 18 months and must carry out 160 hours of unpaid work. He was also given a three year football banning order.
  15. Me and genetics apparently! http://newobserveronline.com/race-or-religion-jewish-genes-identified/ You are aware of the migration of the Jews into Africa? A study published by the National Academy of Sciences stated that "The results support the hypothesis that the paternal gene pools of Jewish communities from Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East descended from a common Middle Eastern ancestral population, and suggest that most Jewish communities have remained relatively isolated from neighboring non-Jewish communities during and after the Diaspora."Researchers expressed surprise at the remarkable genetic uniformity they found among modern Jews, no matter where thediaspora has become dispersed around the world.
