He Jets In he Jets Out again

After the dignified visitation to Planet Fitba by Mr David Cunningham King all is changed, but also remains the same.

His stated aspiration to…ahem…reverse the liquidation of Rangers (1872) was truly inspired.

In one, perhaps, off the cuff remark he brought the spotlight onto the legitimacy of the current entity that trades as Rangers.

What remains unchanged is that this is a loss-making business without a credit line from a bank.

In the final years of the original Rangers, the club was first controlled by the bank because the Knight of the Realm could not pay back what he owed them.

Then the Suave Billionaire bought the club for a quid.

The rest, as they say, is sub judice.

When Rangers were liquidated in June 2012, they did not have a credit line from a bank.

For the avoidance of doubt, Sevco has NEVER had a credit line from a bank.

Of course this does not really matter to The People.

The team is doing well on the field of play, and this opens the possibility for them to indulge in the cultural therapy of singing about wading in blood and mocking famine refugees.

Since the tragic death of Aylan Kurdi Planet Football has been moved to state loudly that refugees are welcome in football.

Those fine sentiments are clearly at variance with the hate expressed by The People in the Famine Song.

They are a sub-culture defined by a historical hatred for the Irish Untermenschen of the Edwardian era.

Consequently, they are utterly ill-equipped to appreciate or contribute fully to the post-Aylan zeitgeist.

Meanwhile, the clever folk on Planet Ashley continue to look in on this shambles and game out various possibilities.

They were interested recently when they thought that a senior person from BDO was the guest of Mr Paul Murray at Ibrox.

However, they might have got that one wrong.

After he had Jetted In Mr David Cunningham King stated that the club was “…comfortably funded for the next six months…”

However, I am informed by well-placed sources that in fact the current operation at Ibrox is rapidly running out of cash.

Consequently, they desperately need loans, of the very soft variety.

The only possible option appears to be some form of internal whip round.

A well-placed source remarked to me yesterday that what we are witnessing is “…an underfunded badly thought out hostile take over”.

The ‘plan’ appears to have been based around the hope that well-heeled Real Rangers Men would step up with soft investment.

Quite a few usually shrewd businesspeople took a chap at his word apropos the provision of the necessary finance.

If any of the stenographers wish to have a day off and try their hand at journalism, then they could do worse than try for an interview with Mr George Taylor of Morgan Stanley.

I could even supply them with the questions…
