For a right wing scum bucket, Brexiteer that lives in France.
Just remember my dealings with him way back in 1998 during Hands on Hibs. Good guy IMHO who also helped me out during something personal in 2007.

I met him around the same time, it’s a right wing scum bag for me, Hibby or not.

his CV would certainly indicate that.

Ha! Just a text from someone this time not employed by the club. A wee bit different than the owner of the club...
Did Ron Gordon tell you we were signing someone Smurf? As it wouldn’t be the first time he’s talked of bringing specific players in and it not coming to fruition (McRory being the other).

Anyway hope we can work something out to get Squirrel 🐿 back! 🙏🏻

If one of the hurdles to getting this deal over the line is paying tax on earnings whilst out of the country for a limited time, but he’s not been getting paid, not sure it would be such an issue?

Apparently it's a done deal....

Hopefully. This news will add numbers to the ST holders tally if it comes to fruition.

Decent earnings have been made though in a short period out of the country....

Is this the guy who stood for Farages lot in Newcastle?
He was an MEP for Farage's lot.

I have never based my friendship choices based on folks political allegiances. I have friends across the political spectrum. Personality characteristics are not always a direct correlation of political persuasion. I've met and known folk who are nasty pieces of work from all political persuasions. And likewise amazing, kind and generous folk from all political persuasions. So I judge folk on how they actually are!

If an individual decides that they have enough in common with Nigel Farage to represent them as an MEP then that's enough information for me to make a judgement that he's not a good guy. If you're comfortable being his pal then you bash on.

I personally think that's exactly where we are going wrong in modern life. We (not referring specifically to you or me) appear to want to exist in an echo chamber surrounded by folk who we share and agree with on everything. I have pals with extreme left wing and right wing utter nonsense. Should we ever discuss I point out the absurdity of their opinions. Some have slightly altered their opinions. And indeed so have I!

Me too, but some are better just dumped.
