That Alex Thomson

Post by Gladstone on Sun Mar 25, 2012 9:35 am

You'll have seen it, I'm sure:

First, I am writing this imagining that one or two people outside Glasgow use the internet, so I might make some observations familiar to Clydeside surfers.

Second, this arises from my continuing investigation into Rangers which is still in early stages. That is to say, I am not investigating Celtic. If I were, rest assured RFC Bears – they’d get just the same treatment.

I’d expected the paranoia, insults, spin etc – hey – this is “fitba” after all and I welcome it good, bad and ugly, from fans within and without Glasgow. Indeed I’ve gone out and asked for it.

What I didn’t expect were the insults (and in at least one case a direct physical threat) not from fans but from Scottish journalists.

Sarajevo, Mogadishu, Kabul, Islamabad, Tripoli, Baghdad…I could bore you with more – in none of these places have I ever got this interesting reaction from local journalists.

Only in Glasgow.

So something’s up. Something’s different.

Something about asking questions about RFC clearly angers some in the Glasgow media in a way I’ve never seen in 25 years of global reporting.


Is this man unemployable by the Sunday Mail?

I watched his five minute investigation into Rangers on C4..Which consisted of a 90 sec interview with a 90yr old man who has clearly seen his best days and a narrative would could have been written by Immo himself. Laughing Thomson came across as a bit of a zoomer to be honest..There is a story in there but maybe he should sack his Rangers Tax Case research team and try a new tact.Just a thought.

Alex Thomson is an excellent journalist of many years standing.

His recent coverage and blogs from Glasgow expose the laptop loyal for the lazy, complacent, incompetent bozos that they are.

The irony being that their refusal to actually report the truth over many years helped create the current situation at Greyskull.

Here's another hack who's actually showing disturbing if belated signs that he might actually be growing a pair:
