“WTF?….”, “The absolute weirdest folk”, “I’m a Rangers fan and you have totally flipped your lid” – Murdo Frasers latest pro Sevco tweet is bonkers
Right, it’s time to stop now.
Whilst i kept my powder dry at the time, it’s now gone too far.
We had to endure a full week of media coverage over the infamous kit mans passing and whilst it is never nice to see someone has lost their life, the Celtic support have their own take on Jimmy Bell.
As do I, but as he has passed I will still keep my opinions to myself.
So whilst the tributes and column inches and radio and TV coverage paid homage to the man, this latest offering by Murdo Fraser is taking things too far.
We are in the middle of the single, biggest cost of living crisis in recent history and Fraser wants to spend his day doing this:
Any motions on dealing with the cost of living crisis caused by his party that is pushing the limits of millions of families household budgets? Don’t be daft.
And the weird thing is, Murdo should think about taking his own advice.
But here’s the thing, when Celtic lost true greats in the game, did Murdo ask for commemoration for their memory?
He was aked this rather pertinent question by a Celtic fan:
Did you do the same for any of the Lisbon lions who have recently passed? Actual legends of Scottish football

Let’s take a look:
There is a reason he is a failed politician. There is a reason he is a list MP.
What he has tweeted asking the Scottish Government to do shows why people view him as a failure and will not vote him in.
And the responses to it? Have a look:
I’m a Rangers fan and you have totally flipped your lid

The poor getting poorer, the hungry getting hungrier, the cold too afraid to heat their homes, and people too afraid to boil a kettle. But this is your priority. If Rangers want to honour him that’s fine, public recognition! I’m sure others may be more deserving of such acclaim.

A man famous for openly discriminating against a rangers player because he was a catholic. I can see why you liked him so much Murdo pic.twitter.com/KoStgLdOFv

Did you do the same for serving medical staff who died after contracting Covid after 30 yrs service to the whole of Scotland?

Will this happen for every “kit man” in Scottish football who dies? Did Teddy Scott at Aberdeen get a motion in Parliament?, or Neil Mochan at Celtic, was he not trainer/kit man in his later days?

You are honestly the weirdest and creepiest bunch of people. Why would a London born GP propose a motion to remember a man who washed the dirty kit of a football team. Oh wait, now I get it. Jimmy wouldn’t have liked you by the way!
