GUEST,Observer Lyr Req: The glesga eskimos (116* d) RE: Lyr Req: The glesga eskimos 10 Sep 18

Observer, you are not worth talking or listening to.

But you do persist in doing so Mr. McVicar, normally without saying much at all, and what you do say tends to be drivel.

1: So you have no idea why McLean is casting about pleading for someone to find verification of this supposed remark by Laning. For without the remark having been uttered the whole Glesga Eskimo thing is nothing more than a rather pathetic joke.

2: You mistake arrogance for 100% pure indifference to you, your views and your opinions. Anyone in this day and age that espouses and advocates Marxism seriously wants their bumps read. Not my fault it never panned out the way you revolutionary Eskimos wanted it to, but it might explain why now you are all so prickly about it.

3: If the outpourings of the Morris Blythman song writing circle, where even those who participated and self admittedly lent a hand in the writing of the songs now disown them, are anything to go by when it comes to be regarded as something of worth then by Christ the bar is set exceptionally low.

4: Didn't your good friends in Russia realise that the ONLY reason there was a NAZI party in Germany was because of the perceived threat of Communism? More importantly do you realise that?

There would have been no Bolsheviks and no Communists had the Tsar or Tsarist system remained in place. By the way had Russia NOT withdrawn from the war in 1917, there would have been no German Spring Offensive in March 1918 because they would not have had the necessary manpower and the war would have ended by the beginning of the summer of 1918 instead of November.

5: Where is Russia's "Commonwealth of Nations" Ewan? Russia's former satellites could get out from under quick enough when the USSR's empire collapsed. And what countries have returned to the fold have done so at the point of a gun.

6: If indeed your Grandfather could explain all the twists and turns of the British Communist Party from 1929 to the 1970s and make them sound sensible and necessary - while you listened to him! That would make him an apologist for one of the greatest killers that ever walked on earth, I think describing him as deluded and naive is letting him off lightly considering the degree and the extent of sufffering inflicted on this earth by the Communists under Joseph Stalin. Very pleased to hear that he did good in his community. Would that be Glesga too? Just as well he did do his community some good because for certain those Labour politicians everybody on Clydeside kept voting for sure as hell didn't do anything.
