"Here come the Men in Black, they won't let you remember"
A major tabloid story up here is the resignation of top Scottish football referee and thus "man in black", Hugh Dallas, due to an alleged e mail which he sent, on 16/9, containing some sort of cartoon style road sign featuring the Pope and child abuse within the Catholic Church. 16th September being the date the Pope visited Holyrood and Scotland.
It should be noted that long before this incident, Dallas had courted controversy with some of his decisions, especially in the infamous Glasgow derby Celtic Rangers games. Celtic supporters considered him biased against their club, often chanting : "Who's the mason in the black", for example. Celtic supporters appear to be of the misconception that freemasonry is a Protestant members only organisation, which is nonsense. As long as one pays homage to a "great architect somewhere in the sky", then one technically qualifies for the craft. Unless of course one has mammaries, in which case it is another story.
Thus, we see how Hugh can potentially interwind with previous posts this month and, given that, we can turn our attention to a more globally recognised Dallas : the soap. I have never watched it, but even then am aware of the "Who shot JR ?" story and indeed, more relevantly, the resurrection of Bobby Ewing, or Patrick Duffy, - who got his break as the webbed hand man in the remarkable Man from Atlantis. Yeah, Atlantis is being reincarnated and the shadowy, light loving,"freemasons" stoke the phoenix fire of their kindling.
Another story which appears to be of relevance comes from the BBC today : Promoter CK events and Hopetoun House sign gigs deal. In it we read of CK events, who brought the likes of Rod Stewart to Inverness and Westlife to, Macbeth resonating, Cawdor Castle. That's CK, 3/11. One recalls a hazy July, back in 2007, when Stewart collected his CBE from HM the Queen, proudly attired in a skull and crossbone motif tie. .(here). Some say the Templars brought secrets with them in 1312 after the Pope put a bounty on their head, secrets which live on with the freemasons. The image below comes from Ecclesmachan cemetery, there are many others with similar artistry. Close at hand is aforementionedHopetoun House, an impressive building, to say the least. One surely appreciates how the aristocracy gained, and keep, their wealth. Pirate-hunting warship receives praise from the Queen , this during her Gulf trip. A gulf being highly applicable, as are double standards.
To close, and understand the signals, we must return to the hated "men in black"; the referees. For here in Scotland, notwithstanding the Dallas incident, a strike took place yesterday, overseas refs being transported in to take control of matters. Work it out from that.
Note images : Oz soap; Dallas' "lucifer horn" handsignal with the specsaver backdrop. Irony squared.
