Puppet On A String
The AGM clearly went well,the board have all been re-elected and all is well with the world. Nobody who actually GAF about our club seems able to do a damn thing to change how it is being run.
Even though there has been the proverbial silver bullet and also the smoking gun to prove that it is not always run in the best interests of the company which owns it!
Take a breath,and think about that. There is a publicly quoted company which refuses to act in its own best interests,and that it has questions to answer about whether it is actually acting-past and present-in the interests of its biggest competitor.
I’m pretty damn sure that there are laws against that,and particularly so if these charges are made by resolution at an AGM,where company officials are bound by law to answer all questions truthfully.
But then,at Celtic we have a weasel as a chairman,a CEO who is being worked from the arse up by his predecessor,and a group of major investors who have no interest in the club/company other than making a profit.
Certainly no interest in Financial Fair Play,nor even in Referee Fair Play.
As ever,some of the minority shareholders did their best while the top table yawned and wondered when they could leave for a free lunch. They’ve been having a free lunch and a damn sight more at our expense for nearly a century between them,as I pointed out yesterday. Enough is never too much for them,too much is never enough.
I’ve stated frequently that I don’t remember having photos of the board on my wall as a kid. None of us did. I go to Celtic Park to support the team,not the board. I honestly believe that,and while I respect those who have chucked it in the face of obvious chicanery,I cannot criticise anyone who still turns up.
After all,if I lived back home I would be there every time!
But,there we are. Puppets on a string. Unable to change a thing,while being manipulated-and bloody knowing about it too!
I will never give up on Celtic. I will never give up on going to watch them whenever I can when I am back home. But I’m getting close to giving up on ever getting rid of the cunts that run our club,and I apologise for that word.
