Many thanks to all those who sent me kind thoughts on reaching 3 million hits.
It was great to hear from regulars, old posters and new – and particularly good to hear from those who read but don’t normally post.
It is heartening to hear people say they feel at home on this blog. I have contemplated at times closing the Comments section but I very much enjoy and appreciate the contribution from people. I even enjoy reading the posts from “critics” because the depths some will sink to in terms of abuse let me know my message is hitting home.
I set out writing this blog to defend my team from its detractors and enemies. Sadly, in recent times those enemies have been what some are calling “the enemy within.” I don’t see every Rangers fan who is against the board as an enemy because the suspicions of these fans are understandable. Those who manipulate the fears and concerns of these fans to further their own agenda are enemies, however, particularly when that agenda undermines the club’s progress.
The sad thing is that those fans who think for themselves and see this blatant manipulation are being denied a voice on the normal fan platforms – all because certain “spokesmen” have bought into the rebel cause.
I will continue to fight for and defend Rangers against foes within and without.
More important to me is the future of the nation and so I will also be continuing to defend the Union against separatists, republicans and rebels.
Those who think it merely circumstantial that a club traditionally known as a bastion of Unionism should find itself crippled by divisions and splits at a time when the Union needs it most have a stronger belief in coincidence than I do.
I am truly grateful that so many of my readers share my thoughts and values; it’s heartening to see that many Rangers fans are still loyal and true.
Over the next few days I will be busy with speaking engagements. I am speaking in London over the weekend and next Thursday will be speaking on “Wake Up The Nation” at the BRITAIN AWAKE!! meeting in Burnbank, Hamilton.
This Friday I am at the War Office in Motherwell with one of my favourite ever Rangers players – Gordon “Smudger” Smith – for a Football Q&A night. You might just get a ticket still for this event.
I am looking forward to seeing some of the blog regulars on this night and seeing who is all in the Remington Club i.e. the clippered baldy head mob.
