This post is entirely self indulgent …
Well, not entirely.
I want to use it to thank all who read the blog, who pass it on and who contribute to it.
I see this morning that February 2013 is the month that the blog has had most hits. Not February 2012, when Rangers went into administration – not June 2012 when Sevco Scotland bought the “assets and business” of Rangers, nor October nor November 2012, as Rangers geared up for its share issue.
And coming soon, possibly, we have the Nimmo Smith verdict, and later the Upper Tribunal appeal, and any fall out from the BDO investigations as part of the liquidation of Rangers 2012 PLC and civil proceedings regarding Mr Whyte’s takeover, and his dealings with Collyer Bristow and Gary Withey, and his deal with Ticketus, and possible criminal proceedings re the takeover (allegedly) and Sir David Murray’s threats of action regarding alleged HMRC leaks and newspaper articles (and blogs) he considers defamatory…
And, as well as all of that, there are non-Rangers related topics too!
I hope the list above shows why this has become a blog where much of my writing is related to the Ibrox football team. It is, in legal terms, the biggest story in town, covering an enormous range of topics. They interest me, so I keep writing about them.
When I started blogging in May and June 2011 I did not think that the hits the blog got in a month then would be less than the hits it gets in an hour now! But that has turned out to be the case.
I plan to keep writing, even if no one else reads it other than me. If you have been with me on the blog since the summer of 2011, or since yesterday, thanks for reading and I hope always to be interesting (even if wrong from time to time). And more importantly a forum for discussion over a range of topics.
