That you can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time is a fact which seems to be completely lost on the Committee of the Greenock Morton Supporters’ Society Ltd.
Fully two weeks have elapsed since Trust ‘Master’ and Chairman Stuart Duncan
made this announcement:

‘The Supporters’ Trust have now completed their own investigation into the affairs of the Stars of 79 Celebration evening.Many lessons have been learned.As a result of those investigation, which resulted in representatives of the Trust speaking to many people not previously spoken to be the police, a report has been compiled on the events leading up to the evening, the activities on the night of the event and activities that took place after the event. Given the contents of the report The Board of the Trust have agreed to seek legal advice as to what action is now available to them. We will keep you updated on any developments’……. and two days later on, David Bell’s website from which Mortonjag is banned for asking questions of the Trust, ‘Master’ Duncan refuted a suggestion that’cooler heads may have prevailed’ with:

‘…. Its was always our intention to fully investigate further, after the police decided not to act…………… IT’S JUST TAKEN US LONGER THAN WE THOUGHT……  may

even once more become the subject of a police investigation’….that shortly after his heir apparent, Sean Donnelly had provided on Tontastic’s ‘propaganda platform’:

‘ A small update for you all, I know its not much but these things do take time. And most we cannot discuss until it is all over with. Hope you all bear with us in this matter’

Sound advice you’d imagine! Hours later and AGAIN on ‘Bell’s Comic’ Mr Donnelly posted PRIVATE Trust ‘accounts’ in an obvious attempt to further discredit Jim Gallacher and to deflect attention from unanswered questions!

Mr Donnelly dislikes criticism, appearing to act impulsively in response, and his behaviour (for example in publishing defamatory allegations) has oft’ been beyond the pale. Yesterday, in a transparent attempt to ‘field’ accusations of ‘delaying tactics’ and with the inevitable childish ‘smiley’,  he announced:

Oh look there was an update in the Tele!!

Looks like Barbi is not the only one making sure its not forgotten and is dealt with.

It will not go away!!!

There had been NO ‘update’ in the Greenock Telegraph. A tiny article had appeared on the inside pages merely echoing old information. Mr Donnelly is correct in stating that ‘Barbi is not the only one making sure it’s not forgotten’ – indeed Mortonjag suspects that the ‘Tilly’ approached the Trust! It’s reassuring that the media have not forgotten an incident which was also reported by the ‘Scottish Sun’.

Perhaps ‘The Sun’ will publish an ARTICLE in due course!!! Perhaps ‘The Sun’ will do so before the Trust ‘updates us on any developments’!…..                                                                   …. in any event, you can’t fool all of the people all of the time, though the Trust Committee may have been only ‘bright enough to be a danger to itself’ in flagrantly flouting its own rule (113), perhaps to save ‘pennies’ on V.A.T., AND  THEREBY BECOMING DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR the ‘Stars of ’79’ financial farce. Cash changed hands without receipts or records – money regularly went in and out of buckets (one of which was temporarily ‘mislaid’!)- questions hung over ‘who had or had not paid how much to whom and for what’, and any number of folk had ample opportunity to make ‘mistakes’, but finding a scapegoat for a self engendered disaster was predictable behaviour from people with a history of failing to answer legitimate questions!

Mortonjag understands that the Police were singularly unimpressed by the Trust’s ‘evidence’, and ‘bad business practice’, yet ‘Master’ Duncan would have all believe that ‘It may even once more become the subject of a police investigation’ after the Trust has ‘sought legal advice’! The Trust has its very own ‘In House Policeman’. Why does it now need to ‘seek legal advice’ before scampering to the real ‘Polis’ as it so willingly did before? Has faith been lost in ‘Columbo’ Goodwin, and his ‘open and shut’ cases? Has his 100% confidence disappeared in a puff of smoke?!!


THOSE THINGS ARE BEING MADE TO TAKE TIME, and the Trust Committee’s ‘MASTERFOOL’ inactivity won’t fool perceptive members whose collective £120,000 investment it currently oversees. With an A.G.M. looming, Mortonjag envisages much praying for miracles! You can’t fool all of the people all of the time, and should the Trust EVER ‘seek legal advice as to what action is now available’ it will most probably be told to stick its investigation “where the sun don’t shine’, though the actual wording may be slightly more discreet. Lawyers, after all, charge for their services – and invariably issue V.A.T receipts.

Meanwhile on ‘Bell’s Comic’ a vocal minority of gullible fools still hangs on the ‘Master’s every word, seemingly oblivious to the thoughts of the silent majority, many of whom appear afraid to ‘rock the boat’ for fear of the wrath of  ‘Almighty Tontastic’!
