It’s because we can’t predict the future.
Never mind that six months ago anyone who said that the Royal Bank of Scotland would be nationalised would be taken away to a secure unit.
Never mind the fact that in the last month Woolworths were for sale for £1 with no takers, and a football manager nearly paid £3.5 million for Kris Boyd.
Just who would have given you odds a year ago that Tommy Sheridan would perform a dance on TV with La Toya Jackson dressed as a condiment set?
Or that the Tomster complete with leotard and make-up would appear on telly doing an aerobic sequence in the company of Coolio, Ulrika (ka-ka) Johnnson and Verne Troyer?
Or that he’d duet with Terry Christian on “The Fields of Athenrye”
Yes its fess up time. I watched about ten minutes of it last night.
Look it was on anyway ok? 8)
I love this quote from the Times by the Tomster (talking to Terry Christian)
“This was an ideal opportunity to discuss Sheridan’s theory that socialism is a doctrine of historical inevitability, advanced one convert at a time. He adduced as evidence a student he’d known some years back at Cardonald College: “He was in the Revolutionary Communist party, he used to wind me up, I was a revisionist, a reformist, I was on the parliamentary road — Jim Murphy his name was. He’s now the Scottish secretary of state. Bloody unbelievable!”
One wonders which story Murphy would try to hush up. The fact he was a revolutionary communist (like John Reid) or that he went to Cardonald College?
Here is Tommy’s pitch to his “housemates” last week..
