In light of silence conspiracies, invisible U-turns and their compromised representation across our world's media; in light of the duplicity of Messieurs Warner, Yorke, Hislop and the mysterious others and in the clear and bright denial of the self-proclaimed man-for-the-job, it seems, to me, at least, common sense paints too murky a picture and plays too small a part to shed enough daylight on this intriguing mess of a non-recruitment.cam said:It would have been an incredibely stupid decision. He's not a bad manager but common sense says that a man who has proven on more than one occasion to a racist idiot that it makes no sense to appoint him to manage a team where the entire squad is going to be (presumabely, I'm not big in T&T football knowledge) black.
Thanks for replying, IVO - and I agree how convenient forgetfulness can be.IVO said:I think there would still be resistance but less of it. People seem to forget what others are like if they need them somehow or feel that they can help them.
The Book of 1 Corinthians said:Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
…For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
…For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
