    "Gritty, defiant and honest Heart of midlothian"

    Anyone read this pish?


    Gorgie is rightly proud of its footballing and industrial heritage brewing, distilling, printing to name but three and its tenements retain an authentic sense of a working-class community. Gritty, defiant, honest Heart of Midlothian FC symbolises what the district is all about, its supporters are quick to point out. None of your trendy, creative types latching onto the support like the green team across the city, they say. Unfashionable? Who cares, this is a team for workers.

    Could be wrong but did this honest team of workers no just bump small business all over the city for tens of millions while taking donations from Lords and other millionaires? LOL

    God, that website is horrible - takes about a minute to load a page thanks to all the adverts.

    Who is this John McLellan anyway?

    That's brutal. A team for workers - a team for Tories and bigots, more like.

    Ha, I decided to Google to answer my own question. Surprise surprise, he's a Tory councillor.

    "Forget about aesthetics, charm, success and appeal. Hearts exist so that there is a team for everyone, so that even the smelly, antisocial weirdo that nobody wants to go near can have a place that they fit and belong. They are a club for all the creepy uncles that used to blight school holidays by attempting to lure kids away on caravanning holidays before being deservedly ostracised by their families. They are the common strand that links Tory councillors, Lord Foulkes and Craig Levein. They are a club for those who know little and care less about the value of money, whether they're bumping charities or pumping in their hard-earned to achieve a top 6 finish in Scotland's top league. Gorgie deserves grudging praise for providing something for the type of person that every other city in the world would love to pretend doesn't exist, and it also smells."

    Ha ha! I hadn't noticed any trendy, creative types along at ER lately - certainly not on the pitch anyway!

    I imagine that most of our Jam Tart friends will be treating this with the scorn it deserves.
