‘I don’t think there is any great secret, as such. The Academy didn’t launch, as the club opted to go with John Laird’s set up. I think, in truth, you’d have to ask the club to explain their thinking behind that. Perhaps Stuart will be able to say something more about it at the Trust a.g.m.. Regardless, the decision left the Trust with money designated for a purpose that was unlikely to be fulfilled. We’re now actively looking at alternative ways the money can be invested in the club, albeit this is at an early stage’.
Chris McCorkindale – Trust Secretary:
Of course there’s a big secret. Duncan’s nose has been in a poke ever since Douglas Rae gazumped him.
Duncan is a bully. Ask Jim Gallacher. Duncan is also a coward. Ask Douglas Rae.
‘Perhaps Stuart will say something about it at the Trust A.G.M!’
BRILLIANT Chris – pure dead BRILLIANT!!!
WHAT IS THE DATE OF THAT A.G.M. PLEASE, AND WILL THE MEMBERS RECEIVE ADVANCE NOTIFICATION THIS YEAR ALONG WITH THE AGENDA, AND WILL MORTONJAG AGAIN BE THREATENED WITH EVICTION IF HE ASKS MORE LEGITIMATE QUESTIONS?
What mandate does that lot have from the Trust membership to hand over to a third party money WHICH WAS RAISED FOR ONE SPECIFIC PROJECT AND THAT PROJECT ONLY?
What mandate does that lot have from those many many non members who put a huge amount of time and effort into the generation of funds for their youth Academy?
They did so in the firm belief that it would be independent of the Club in all but red tape. They mistakenly believed that it was in the hands of trustworthy people.
ON THE TOPIC OF MANDATES:
WHAT MANDATE DID THAT LOT SEEK FROM THE MEMBERSHIP FOR A FIFTEEN MONTH PERSECUTION OF JIM GALLACHER IN AN ATTEMPT TO COVER CHAIRMAN DUNCAN’S BACKSIDE AFTER THE POLICE SENT HIM PACKING?….
AFTER THEIR LATEST HUMUNGOUS ‘COCK UP’ WHICH LEAVES THE TRUST WITH A POTENTIAL LEGAL BILL OF BETWEEN £5000 AND £10000
WILL IT FINALLY PENETRATE THEIR THICK SKULLS THAT THEY ARE
CONSTITUTIONALLY BOUND TO INFORM THE MEMBERSHIP OF ALL ISSUES OF NOTE, TO CANVASS THE VIEWS OF THAT MEMBERSHIP AT ALL TIMES, AND TO IMPLEMENT THE WISHES OF THE MEMBERSHIP AS A WHOLE?
WILL THEY NOW BE SEEKING AN ACCEPTABLE FORM OF MANDATE TO PROGRESS THAT CIVIL ACTION WHILE DONNELLY’S DEFICIT IS STILL COVERED UP ‘IN HOUSE’ OR WILL ‘HERR’ DUNCAN AND HIS GESTAPO TRY ONCE AGAIN TO JACKBOOT THEIR WAY OVER ALL THAT IS DECENT AND MORAL AND PROPER?
In the final analysis, the ‘Academy’ transmuted to the G.M.C.T.
