Quote(s) of the day (yesterday)

Former Scotland football manager Craig Brown on the Politics Show yesterday:
"The GB team...Quite clearly, being very patriotic and Scottish I am bitterly opposed to that because I don't trust FIFA's assurance that this thing won't be binding for the future..."

"There is not one genuine football - Scotland - supporter that I know who's in favour of this."
Guess he will be berated from all sides as a closet "bigot" Nationalist...

Incidentally, the MSPs' favourite sporting pundit - one Charles "Chic" Young - also appeared on the Politics Show yesterday. The following statement (at 30.10 on the film) is attributed to him:
"I think its one thing politicians sticking their noses into football in the first place. But sticking their boots into it - and me in particular - is another thing altogether."

"If I had the slightest excuse, I would be the 'Guy Fawkes' of Holyrood and I'd try to blow the place to smithereens."
Surely the counter-terrorism police must be called regarding this very public threat on an established democratic institution?!

Maybe Chic Young just fancies being Scotland's answer to Guido!

I'm quite happy - indeed, eager - to engage in debate with others when the topic provides opportunity to do so. I like knowing who I'm debating with and I'm fed up with some abusive anonymous comments so I've disabled those comments for awhile. If you want to comment, log in - it only takes a minute.
