Looks like I'll miss all the real fun - on holiday from May 28 to June 7. What will I come back to? Certainly another 500 pages on here!

Know how you feel. I am away on Wednesday for a couple of weeks. Have this dream of returning to a Rangers-free SPL in a Scotland where everyone is smiling and the sun is shining. Please let it be so. :)

Special Operations Executive agents during the last war had a trick that would show if their radio messages were genuine. They would deliberately put a pre-agreed spelling mistake into every broadcast. If, however they were rounded up by the nazis and forced to broadcast fake info, they would use the correct spelling, thus alerting London that they had been captured.

So, the P&B spies in RM could simply put spelling mistakes into their RM posts and......................................................................oh, I see there's a fatal flaw in this plan, sorry.

Simply reverse the strategy, spell correctly and punctuated. Then txt speek if ra peepul coton onn ;)

Abso-fricking-lutely. How would you forgive yourself if you weren't plugged into The Big Rangers Administration Thread when the crippled hulk of Rangers FC finally luches into the massive double shitberg of the BTC and dual contract investigation findings?

ASTONISHING RANGERS CLAIMS BY LLOYDS CHAIRMAN - Exclusive

LLOYDS BANK have claimed they had nothing to do with the controversial sale of Rangers by David Murray to conman Craig Whyte.

Despite the fact David Murray told Martin Bain at the time, his Murray Group were in debt to Lloyds to the tune of a staggering £700M and that Lloyds Bank had ordered him to get rid of Rangers….FAST!

It is the latest twist in the increasingly bitter claims and counter claims rumpus over just what happened when Murray sold out Rangers to conman Whyte for a quid, sealing Rangers’ fate by sending them hurtling into the crisis which now engulfs them.

But Lloyds Bank have admitted they haven’t a clue what role their own man on the Rangers board, the shadowy Donald Muir, played in the deal which has taken Rangers to the brink of oblivion.

That startling admission came from the man at the very top of the Lloyds Banking Group, Sir Winfried Bischoff and was all the more astonishing given the fact that Lloyds remain Rangers’ bankers.

However, he has been forced to promise he will launch a full scale internal probe to attempt to uncover just what role Muir, who was acting as a consultant for Lloyds, representing their interests on the Rangers’ board, played in the fiasco.

And that he will provide answers.

Bischoff made the pledge at a stormy Lloyds Banking Group Annual General Meeting held in Edinburgh, during which Lloyds were under attack for the way it handled the Rangers’ account and the sale of the club by Murray to trickster Whyte, leading to the Ibrox club now having to fight for its very existence.

Four times the Lloyds Bank chairman was grilled as to what role his Bank and those employed by Lloyds, played in the debacle.

And the under pressure Bischoff was forced to admit Lloyds Bank knew nothing about Craig Whyte’s dodgy past.

Bischoff admitted Lloyds did not investigate Whyte and had no idea where the money he was going to pay off Rangers’ £18M debt to Lloyds was coming from,and that Lloyds hadn't a clue that trickster Whyte had been banned for serving as a director for seven years.

Bischoff also insisted that another controversial behind-the-scenes senior figure at Lloyds at the time, Manus Joseph Fullerton, a founding director of the Celtic Trust, had nothing to do with the Rangers account, despite the fact east end of Glasgow born Fullerton claimed quite clearly on BBC Scotland’s website that he was responsible for ALL business banking in Scotland.

Bischoff insisted that was not the case and the now retired Manus Joseph Fullerton only controlled companies which had a turnover of up to £5M.

It is curious Lloyds have never made this claim before, as they have long been aware of Manus Joseph Fullerton being mentioned in LeggoLand. A simple statement when his name originally surfaced here in the autumn of 2010 would have cleared up the whole matter.

But Lloyds Bank refused to do that. They stayed silent on Manus Joseph Fullerton’s role in the whole murky affair until chairman Sir Winfried Bischoff was forced to comment when quizzed at the Lloyds Banking Group’s Annual General Meeting.

At the at times stormy three and a half hour AGM, chairman Sir Winfried Bischoff insisted Lloyds Bank had no influence whatsoever on David Murray’s decision to sell Rangers to Craig Whyte.

He revealed Lloyds did not do due diligence on conman Whyte and had no knowledge of his dodgy past and that Lloyds were not interested in knowing where Whyte got the £18M he used to pay off the Rangers’ debt to the Bank.

Sir Winfried Bischoff also admitted he had no idea what role Lloyds Bank’s representative on the Rangers board, Donald Muir, played in the sale of Rangers to huckster Whyte.

And that Manus Joseph Fullerton, a founding director of the Celtic Trust, who claimed he was responsible for ALL business banking in Scotland, was not involved in any banking affairs of one of Lloyds most high profile customers, Rangers.

The bottom line being, Lloyds had no idea what their man on the Rangers board, Donald Muir, was up to and that Lloyds appeared to be happy enough to hand over the ownership of a high profile business in Scotland, one which their bank in the guise of the Bank of Scotland, the Halifax Bank of Scotland and the Lloyds Banking Group, had been involved with for a quarter of a century, without bothering to investigate the buyer or show any interest in where Craig Whyte’s money to clear the £18M to Lloyds, was coming from.

Given that Whyte has no visible means of support, no visible means of legal income, that is an astonishing admission for the chairman of Lloyds Bank, which British taxpayers have a 43per cent stake in, to make.

And it surely makes one wonder just how easy drug dealers, human traffickers and other branches of organised crime, must find it to launder their dirty money through the Lloyds Banking Group?

Perhaps that is a matter some Westminster MPs might like to take up with the Treasury.

......

AND......

HEDDA HOPPER?

But why no Louella Parsons?

After all, as Sammy Cahn wrote, you can't have one without the other.

Besides which, when it comes to gossip columnists you can't beat Walter Winchell.

He even gets a mention in one of the greatest songs from the Great American Songbook, a number defined by Frank Sinatra, The Lady is a Tramp.

Lyrics by the better, more literate and insightful of the two lyricists who worked by Richard Rogers, Lorenz 'Larry' Hart.

And that's before we get to Damon Runyon, the most outstanding newspaper writing talent of that epoch.

But Runyon was beyond being a gossip columnist.

So Lloyds had nothing to do with forcing SDM's hand to sell the club to the conman? Just gets murkier by the day. Sometime in the distant future somebody will wade through all this pigswill and will write the definitive book about it but by that time nobody will remember who or what RFC was. :lol:

Do you think someone will bring out a new "tribute" strip at the start of each season to say "this is what we would have worn, (sigh)"

I'm travelling with work soon and have similar concerns...timezones and all that.

As you say, one big story down (SFA) and two to go.... :D

Who's this guy Fullerton? I'm sure he had a role in the Celtic Trust. Wish Leggo had given some more detail.

Strikes me as a bit weird that none of our media are applying any pressure to the SFA to release the findings of the EBT investigation..?? SFA seem to be hoping no one will notice until NEWCO and then they can publish safe in the knowledge that the oldco no longer exist and they cannot touch the NEWCO. Was hoping the BBC journo's would be leading the call for the EBT findings to be released.

And while we're at it, I wish Leggo had expanded on the history of the fella Fullerton. Did he not play a part as a founding member of the Celtic trust? And he was also responsible for all business banking in Scotland, you say?

Leggo should mention him in his blog. Who is David Leggat? Who is Chick Young?

What's a blog? <hic>

'War chest' is one of those mega annoying Daily Retard phrases that really does my head in. Like their use of 'Swoop', 'Eye watering' 'Pens new deal' 'Fired a warning' and 'Boyhood/lifelong Rangers/Celtic fan' and dozens of others.

I have heard that boyhood rainjurs fan Billy King fae Govan is selling his old stamp collection to raise a £10 war chest' to swoop for the rainjurs!! This would be 5 Times Greens bid and an eye watering ten times Whytes purchase price!!! The deal is dependant on fans favourite Stevie 'Red hand' Davis penning a new deal however, but the Daily Retard has inside information that Fat Sally has already seen the colour of Billy Kings quantum. It's orange.

But has anyone slapped in a transfer request yet?

That's right, he was responsible for all business banking in Scotland. As well as being a founding member of the Celtic trust.

Can't believe leggo didn't mention this.
