A point to be made ?
This could be synchronicity, coincidence, or even manipulation at a higher level, bearing in mind recent posts.
The gentleman above in the Santa type hat is ex Royal Marine Stephen Gough, AKA the Naked Rambler, who was released early from Perth prison on Tuesday 17th July, after being handed 657 day sentence for parading in the nude; legally for contempt of court and breach of the peace. This was not the first time he had been incarcerated in Scotland, the norm previously was that as soon as he was released he was re-arrested given he refuses to wear clothes, however this time he appears to have been allowed on his way home to Eastleigh, unlike several previous instances over the last 6 years.
The images are from the Scottish Sun, who have christened him Willy, a short form of William and slang for a penis.
The Olympic torch briefly visited Gough's homestead, Eastleigh, on Sunday 15th July, having "taken off and landed" on the British Airways Firefly Airbus from Southhampton airport in order to visit the Channel Islands (here).
Monday 16th saw the torch leave from Portsmouth, more specifically, Fratton Park, home of Portsmouth football club; a club in the same financial disarray as Glasgow Rangers, the Scottish, Orange "King Billy" team. It was first carried by John Jenkins, in front of "1000 local schoolchildren. (BBC).
What the BBC don't mention though, and what ties in with poor "Willy", is that Portsmouth notorious hooligan firm are called the 6.57 crew, a name taken from the fact that at one time they regularly got the 6.57am train to London Waterloo (wiki - 6.57 crew).
Note - The curious demise (and rebirth) of "Orange" team Glasgow Rangers has been noted here often.
