Previous postings now seem to be working together in unison, first with the story that plucked from obscurity Pop Idol winner, Michelle McManus, is to join X Factor legend, Susan Boyle, at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow, where they will both sing numbers for the Pontiff after his 16/9 trip to Royal Holyrood and lunch with Cardinal O'Brian. This typifies the merging of standard religion with standard televisually promoted sporting/celebrity worship, no doubt in preparation for the coming of the One. If you doubt that, remember Diana's funeral and anyhow, T shirts, mugs and suchlike are already on sale - what would Jesus make of that ?
Next story is music to my ears, given previous ramblings about the "crop circle" at Oatridge farm college resonating human-farming which I linked in with David Murray, Glasgow Rangers chairman, and his development at Gogar, to the West of Edinburgh (A Sunny Trap). The Royal Bank of Scotland headquarters are located very close by and today we read from the BBC, Climate protest camp targets RBS headquarters, of how eco-warriors have set up a base camp in Gogar woods in preparation for next Monday: "a day of mass action against the Royal Bank of Scotland" .
Monday's date being 23rd August: the day after the historic Battle of the Standard and St. Columba's "Loch Ness monster experience" (Ringers) , more importantly though, the date William Wallace was executed - hung, drawn, quartered and beheaded by Edward 1st (Braveheart Enigma).
Maybe though, despite all the noted depression and surely misguided "warriors", there is some hope in the pea-soup gloom. For yesterday a giant vulture escaped from the World of Wings centre in Cumbernauld, forcing an national aircraft warning.
The bird's name is Gandalf, wonder if he's ringed.
