Lets All Laugh At Rangers Thread

Im sure there is still some schools with just Catholics or wee frees in them but most schools in Glasgow are integrated M8. 

They're not fully integrated though.  Not many kids from practising Catholic families will attend non-denominational schools.  

The fact that state schools can have identities such as RC, is the issue being discussed.

Do you have the figures and why is it a problem?

No I don't have figures regarding it.

The problem is that it cements otherwise barely perceptible differences between children in a setting that requires no such thing.  It 'others' people.

I can honestly see no need for it and I struggle to see what good comes of it.  I think it would be problematic to dismantle, but also that it utterly belongs to a bygone age.

So what are you saying they should be shut even thou they're out performing non-dom schools with integration in both?

Great Scott!!

Pretty sure you were one of the Loyal saying that Scott Wright wasn’t good enough for Rangers up until a week ago.

I've probably gave him a mixture of praise and criticism,  like fitba fans tend to do.

I've probably been the most vocally critical of him. I'm yet to be convinced on him, too often his second touch is reacting to his poor first touch. He gave away a lot of possession in the Europa final but did a lot better in the cup game. 

If he can eliminate the errors from his game then he could be a very useful player for us. Definitely has the raw attributes you'd look for in a player. His finish in the final was exquisite.

Yes, I'd do away with the distinction.  Are you sure Catholic schools out-perform the others?  I take it you mean in terms of academic attainment?  I thought they were much of a muchness these days.  The biggest factors there are clearly socio-economic.

Anyway, in a nod to the thread, can we all laugh at when Rangers lost at home to Annan please?

Guys, the thread. Think about the thread. 

You're right.  I'm sorry.

Can we discuss other things so long as we bring up a hilarious occasion from the banter years, like someone flying abroad but trying to offset the footprint by planting a tree?

You started with segregation now you've moved on to distinction,what distinction to schools that are open to all monkey?

My own one was on the day of the infamous Peru game, so I kind of do have a problem.  I don't really see a role for schools in arranging such things now though.

 

 

The distinction lies in the designation of schools.

The segregation between children is entailed by the distinction.

 

 

 

 

If it's really the free-for-all you claim, then what's the point?

 

 

ETA: Remember when they led Alloa in the Challenge Cup semi by two goals to nil, yet still contrived to lose.

I would guess it's down to numbers monkey, I think 15% in Scotland are Catholic there for we have 15% of schools are Catholic.
I was in Seville when my daughter made hers bad Dad.

Yes, but if they're all really as fully integrated as you suggest, why bother designating certain schools differently?

 

 

Who can forget the gazebo at the AGM?

I assume you have personal knowledge / stats to back this up?

In Drumchapel they closed the only RC secondary school, St Pius, so parents had a choice of sending their children to the non-denom school in Drumchapel, or getting them bussed to Clydebank. I think a lot of them chose to send them to the non-denom and imagine this will have been the case throughout Glasgow, where there were school closures.

My oldest 2 went to RC schools, my 2 youngest went to non-denom schools. The only sectarian issue was the 2 going to non-denom school being called ****** B's, due to their support of Celtic (ironically, they were probably the only kids in the school who were regular church attenders - COS).

RC schools / segregation is not the problem - the problem lies with the ignorant who have a hatred of catholicism and until that changes, or the government of this "great wee country" decides to actually act on this bigotry, we will always have a problem.

As an aside, the OO have actively infiltrated the Scottish Labour party, in order to have a say in the number of marches allowed and the continuation of catholic schools - organised bigotry?

I would guess the Ethos monkey, I just don't see the problem here and why do you see them as different?
