Commonwealth Games

Political correctness gone mad. There are dangerous precedences being set by the Bitter Together campaign, (games organisers take their instructions from the Labour controlled Glasgow City Council). In seeking to, (in public at least) ensure the games would be free of political influences the organisers are covertly achieving the reverse.

Commonwealth games spectators attending venues in, Glasgow Green revealed they were ordered to remove, “Yes” button badges at the gates by security guards who told them they, “represent a protest”.

I have sympathy for Pacific Quay based BBC Scotland presenters who must be seething at being, (put out to pasture) with coverage of the Commonwealth Games, in Glasgow being remitted to English presenters. An event of the magnitude of the games would be one of the highlights of a scottish presenters career but where were they? There was only one, Hazel Irvine and she was used sparingly as an anchor.

Heard a good one on a BBC TV morning segment this morning, apparently there are 2 teams now: Team England; and the home nations. To paraphrase “Looks like Team England are in the running for a a couple of gold medals and the home nations should pick uup some other medals”
