  1. This is the link to the Trust findings : http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/bbctrust/assets/files/pdf/appeals/esc_bulletins/2013/apr_may.pdf The judgement was made after I went through all the BBC appeals process over a 2 year period and was knocked back at every stage! my complaint was that they ( BBC Scotland ) kept saying that RFC 1872 are dead! I wanted a "distinction" between Club and Company!
  2. karma is real!!! They can take it all the way to the Trust like I did but wait! The decision is final!!!
  3. Don't think he has paid the full price yet!
  4. Works Edinburgh City Council (pensions)wrote/edited program and also called us h***! @ajscrawford1987.
  5. Don't you just love it when you are proven right!!!
  6. So that's the part you mean! thanks for clarifying as I had no idea "Wtf are you on about"
  7. No he was not!!! That is not what the Trust concluded! They said: The Committee noted that it had been acknowledged by the Editor of Sport at BBC Scotland that the comments by Jim Spence describing John McClelland as “the chairman of the old club, some people will tell you the club, well the club that died” could have been better phrased within the live piece and had apologised for any offence caused by it. The Committee also noted that the Editorial Complaints Unit had agreed that the words could have been better chosen and had stated in its finding: “The ECU has acknowledged that there was a degree of ambiguity in the words used by Mr Spence and we agreed with BBC Scotland that his comments ‘could have been better phrased’. However, we remain of the view that his comments have to be considered in the context of the discussion that was taking place which was entirely about the composition of the board of The Rangers International Football Club plc and the running of The Rangers International Football Club plc.” The Committee agreed with this view and noted that the Adviser had extended her apologies on its behalf for any offence that had been caused by the words of the presenter. http://downloads.bbc...ns/2014/jan.pdf Therefore he was wrong to say "club" as the Trust accepted, he was not “cleared” as they (three levels of the BBC ) had to apologise also as the Trust would have been unable to take the remedial action called for by most complainers (sack him) the apologises from the Editor of spot, the ECU and the reviewer were sufficient! definition of apology. 1. an oral or written expression of regret or contrition for a fault or failing. 2. . an expression of regret for having committed an error or rudeness. 3. an expression of regret at having caused trouble for someone. Are we clear now!
  8. Planet Football Celtic Under pressure from regulators as well as the Treasury committee, the Co-operative Bank wasted no time adding the recent land sale by Glasgow city council to Celtic to the security held for the bank's £33m funding. A charge over the land near Celtic Park was granted on 19 December, seven days after the council approved the sale. The Co-Op was big on football clubs, but Celtic has been probably the biggest beneficiary of that largesse - unrelated, no doubt, to the presence on that club's board of former Labour ministers John Reid (who has since left) and Brian Wilson (still there). But the new, more professional management at the bank may be less generous. The Celtic facility consists of long-term loans of £21m and an overdraft facility of £12m. Both are cheap to run, being fixed at a little more than Libor/bank rate plus 1 percent. So the overdraft last year cost just 1.5 percent and the loans 1.65 percent. When those deals were done, base rate was much higher, but the deals are still sweet. Similarly, Celtic seems to gave benefited from favourable terms in its land deals with the traditionally Labour-dominated local council. One interesting omission from the otherwise detailed Celtic accounts for 2013 relates to related party transactions during the year. There is reference to "a number of transactions, principally for the supply of goods and services" between the club itself, the subsidiary Celtic FC, with "organisations in which some directors have an interest, as directors or shareholders of the other contracting party". Shareholders are assured that such transactions were "at arms length" and "of an insignificant nature". So no information is provided as to which directors, what goods and services and how much! Not exactly how the related party game is usually played. It should be up to shareholders to decide about the shortness of arms and significance and that requires full information. A yellow card. 'Slicker'
  9. Read the VB statement from VB admin in my post above! or do you work for the RFC hating media also????
  10. See ET have joined in on the deflection from the GB by trying to bring VB into something that has no fact! *** ADDENDUM from Admin *** For the avoidance of doubt, and as pointed out on a number of previous articles, @VBCommunication is the ONLY official VB Twitter account. We have not created a “Death List” or "Hit List" - which is the lie being spouted by the many Rangers-haters out there. In particular we would like to single out Scotzine Editor, serial Rangers-hater Andrew Muirhead for his vicious attack on us, twisting what any reasonable person considers an attempt at humour, from an unofficial Twitter account. Mr Muirhead has a history of distorting the truth when it comes to his favourite obsession - The "offending" image that is currently circulating has been doctored from an original one we used in an article from February of this year. The original article highlighted those people and organisations (the logos of the BBC and ESPN featured on the original graphic - Is it even possible to 'kill' a company?) who, through their actions, we considered to be the enemies of Rangers FC. The doctoring of our image was carried out by persons unknown, therefore beyond our control, however we would like to point out that our original graphic did not intend to, nor did it achieve any unwarranted attention towards our football club at the time of publication, and that anyone attempting to associate the club with this doctored version now is simply clutching at straws. It is never our intention to harm our club in any way. We also take exception to an inaccurate report in today's Daily Record which claims that our group are “Ultra's”. Our membership comprises of many individuals who form a significant part of the wider Rangers family – Vanguard Bears do not claim to be "Ultra's"
  11. I am not finished! I am still going to the Trust about him (as I do not except the explanation) from them regarding his comments! the c**t meant it and I am determined to out him!!!
  12. Oh Dear! if you are trying to be a smart arse you failed! BBC Scotland and all complainers got the draft report to consider two weeks ago! they did not object to this paragraph therefore they accept it! but what do I know!!! I was just one of the original complainers to the Trust! By the way admin! ban the tim! ffs!!!
