Roy Greenslade Focuses On The Important News Stories…

It will be interesting to see if any newspaper covers the fact that members of Britain’s armed forces appeared to join in with Scottish football fans as they sang sectarian songs at a match yesterday.

‘Appeared to’..? Well, did they, or didn’t they?

You don’t seem too sure…

Rival Celtic fans were quick to point to songs that are supposed to be banned from all Scottish football grounds under a new law passed by the Scottish parliament.

How does a law like that work? Do they throw you out if you are caught singing it?

Two media reports about the events that have been published – one here on the STV site and another here on the Daily Record site – make no reference to the soldiers’ antics.

Well, perhaps they aren’t as keen to fling shit at our armed forces as the dear old Grauniad, Roy…

How odd that both outlets missed the story? Or do their reporters think soldiers chanting sectarian songs in unison with football fans is unworthy of comment?

So, they definitely did do it? After all, you weren’t so sure at the start…

But still, what are these awful ditties that would make one ashamed to hear them issuing from the lips of our noble fighting men?

Although it is difficult to make out the exact words on the video posted on YouTube, people have identified sectarian songs and chants celebrating the death of the IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands.

Ah. The IRA that killed so many of their colleagues? Well, then, I’m happy to sing along myself!

    This is up there with those sweet, innocent Leeds United fans who got upset by Millwall singing about Istanbul…now I assume those songs didn’t refer to Liverpool winning the European Cup, but are these the same delicate souls who’ve spent decades singing about Munich and Valley Parade?
