Scottish Flags Deemed ‘Offensive’ For Fire Engines.

This is one of those stories you need to re-read just to make sure it’s authentic.

The Daily Record is today reporting that a recent complaint was made to Aberdeen fire chiefs regarding the vinyl based Saltire flags which were stuck onto the front of two of their fire engines.

They were placed on the new vehicles to mark the merger of Scotland’s eight brigades into one, but the mere sight of the St Andrew’s cross on the fire engines enraged one member of public so much that he/she made a formal complaint and they were duly removed. It’s thought that the complaint was politically motivated as it’s been suggested that the person, (with far too much spare time on their hands), saw the flags as being a sign of ‘pro-independence’.

Really? The St Andrew’s cross is now offensive to people? Shall it now too find it’s way into the same bracket of offensive flags such as the Swastika,¬†Confederate or White Power flags?

Mark McGhee Is A Comedy Genius.

The McGhee Facepalm.

Troubled Aberdeen Football Club manager Mark McGhee faced the nation’s press earlier today to confirm that he would be staying on in the job and that his decision isn’t about the money, it’s more down to an issue of loyalty to the club that he…blah, blah, blah and other similar fartblossom mince. But he did unintentionally crack one of the funniest jokes this month.

He said: “It would have been an easy option for me to decide I’d had enough of this. I’ve got a contract and that’s worth money to me.
“I could have taken that and been gone and be sitting with my feet up in Brighton and maybe this weekend fly off to Vegas to my brother-in-law’s for a couple of weeks and wonder how Aberdeen were getting on back home.
“But that never entered my mind.”

We think it just did Mark.
