And the madness continues

In March I posted that Celtic manager Neil Lennon was Living under intolerable pressure.

This morning brings the frankly unbelievable news that mail bombs have been sent to Lennon, Paul McBride QC (a lawyer used by Celtic FC and Lennon), and Labour politician Trish Godman (a Celtic fan). The story is all over the British media but here's just one link from the BBC.

It's probably worth remembering that Lennon stopped playing for his country because of death threats. He has had several death threats since and has been attacked in the street in Glasgow. In January this year he had bullets sent to him in the post - as did two other Celtic players (both Catholics from the bastard statelet of Northern Ireland).

Why is this happening? Because he is an uppity taig, a fenian who doesn't know his place and challenges the establishment that's why.

It's enough to make you despair.
