Our date with destiny has been revealed. The golden envelop states that the 8th December will see us be discussed and if any punishment will be dealt out for ‘illicit singing’.
If Article 11.2 is the guide then the verdict is guilty and this is a kangaroo court, a waste of time and they really should just send the punishment or a silk glove to give us a slap across the wrists.
Article 11.2 states:
“the use of gestures, words, objects or any other means to transmit any message that is not fit for a sports event, in particular if it is of a political, offensive or provocative nature.”
Cut and dried then. No political excuse (and it’s beginning to sound like an excuse, a tired one at that) can be used.
There has been some call on-line for a list of definitive songs that we can sing without fear or favour. There has to be a measure, some sort of guide to ensure that we choose the correct ones. Watching Scotland’s Greatest Album gave me an idea.
What would Pat Nevin have?
You see Pat is the man of the righteous, off strong believes and off convictions. He has already made a stand against bigotry at Celtic, single handily defeated racism at Chelsea and quashed homophobia at Easter Road.
If you had to set your moral compass to someone then Pat would be the path you would try and find.
So, what would you have on the list?
I’ll start, I love that song about the World Club Championship. “One, two and then kick, clap, clap. It was the craziest game I’ve ever seen”. That’s what the kids call a real toe tapper.
*Sorry about the flippancy but I can’t believe that it’s come to leading the horse to water for it to survive.
