Well. That's presumptuous tosh!

Won’t be far off the mark though.....it’s interesting to contrast a number of discussions on here with the thistle Facebook group which is a younger group ....

just because you say your not liking her has nothing to do with the fact she is a woman don’t make it so

For some examples of outright mysoginy have a read at P & B. But maybe they're not really Thistle supporters.

Yeah the same Thistle facebook group that discusses all sorts of sensible stuff...not! Seems like you have made up your mind and like those younger ones on the facebook group who take pride in trying to wind folk up and get a bite.

Alternatively it doesn't make it that they hate women?

Notice, with a post like Springburn's,  that there's never any  attempt to address  the person's record who's being criticised  (which is this case is an appalling one even by the standards of the 'PR' industry), but always an attempt to divert attention and make unfounded, and unprovable, allegations about  the poster.

Very similar to the tactics of Conservative Central Office ... oh, that's right I almost forgot ... that's who she'll be working for right now, alongside Boris helping to maintain England's rule in Scotland.

Reading some of the more political comments only SNP card carrying supporters will be welcomed & possibly Green Party members . Dangerous times we live in .

I could repost this on Gerry Britton and it would be true m

I think using "tory" as an insult makes you as much a political commentator as calling someone a w***er makes you a sex therapist! :confused1:

We are living in a dangerous society when you are not allowed to disagree with the current social trends without being branded discriminatory.  It denies free speech.

What is dangerous is allowing racist, misogynist, homophobic or sectarian comments to go unchallenged.

I'll be honest, I can't help disliking Rangers more. I put it down to having to go to school with them.

Did you really go to school with Rangers Al?

Who, like Coisty, Durranty and that?

Of all the ridiculous threads I have seen on this forum, this has to be right up there.

People really need to get a life, rather than throwing around accusations of discriminatory behaviour, when there is absolutely none.

Pathetic.

You can't please everyone can you? and nothing lasts forever.

Nevertheless, let's put it this way;

Nicola Sturgeon - SNP - widely supported and respected by her own.

Ruth Davidson - Conservative - widely supported and respected by her own.

Kezia Dugdale - Labour - not widely respected or supported by her own.

Was Kezia Dugdale's leadership held in poor regard by Labour people because she is a women, or was it because she was a total calamity in the job and unable to provide what her own people wanted?

All this Tories have no place a Firhill stuff, is (IMO) nothing more than bigotry.

I couldn't care less that JLow was a woman, or that she was a Tory. It was her inability to do the job that bothered me.

Jlow couldn't run a bath, never mind run a football club.

Yes a group of white middle aged men deny misogyny ......that’s a new one 

First there are Women in Football very well respected by Fans of all Clubs - Anne Budge & Lianne Dempsey being two 

Whilst its accepted that there is massive barriers to Women in Society- to try and lump the fact that Fans had gripes with the former Chairmen was  Misogyny is frankly wrong - and then use the fact that they are Men therefore guilty-  is well Sexist 

But its a mute argument 

Beyond being a Director of 3BC  Jlo has nothing to do with the Club - she isn't even a shareholder in 3BC  - the legal position is that 3BC have no more rights than me as a Shareholder - we can Vote on Directors - We can Vote at the AGM - thats it 

Therefore as a Shareholder you get to Vote - nothing more

 Its not as though you can turn up at the Office and start speaking to Staff 

Its Not as though you can be in the Directors Box or have a Title in any shape or form - there are Directors & a Company Secretary - thats it ......

Its not as if you own the Club ( even with 55% you dont Own it ) 

Its not as if you can attend Board Meetings - or have a say in any aspect of the Club on any level

Its not as if you can in any shape or form influence  decisions outwith the AGM  

Its not as if you get to meet the Manager or discuss anything to do with the Team 

Your a Shareholder - and in the case of Jlo - a Director of a Company who is a Shareholder - which is one stepped removed from an actual Shareholder 

So this argument over misogyny is a mute point 

TFE made a very clear statement that Jlo wouldn't be involved with the Club if people supported them ( there public statement -not mine ) 

The briefing given to the Evening Times  was very clear- she had no Official Capacity at the Club-  and for clarity only those with Official Capacity can be involved in the aforementioned actions - and our Board of Directors run the Club - they make all decisions-  and have Corporate  Governance Responsibilities   

As one of the New Board from TFE is a Lawyer - he will obviously know that - and as Ian Dodds has been a Club Director for a Number of years - he will also know that 

So its a thread over nothing to be honest ...

But Gerry Britton is an employee not a Director - he can make No Public Statements - He has No Power - He carries out Board Instructions 

To try and put this on Gerry B - an Employee who simply  carries out the Instructions of his employers is frankly disgraceful 

How do you know what Gerry thinks or would do - he is an employee - he doesnt make the decisions 

The Board take the decisions

Who said anything about not being allowed to say anything ? You can and you can be challenged on what you say

still little commentary on the job performance of our ceo
