That lot have been getting away with it for years.  Also a bunch of tax dodging swines.  The whole family at cooking their books.  

Backgreen weedgie culture loves em so Godley will probably be back after the sympathy 6 parter in the Record blaming her past.  

 

Oh I can’t stand mrs browns boys , it’s awful . Over sentimental , cloying crap really

Yes I feel there was zero “ comedy “ element to it or indeed an education part to it either as such , as comedy can enlighten people . It just seems like some schemie harridan really 


Part of her act and persona. Shit as it is.

The whole pile-on was started by a concerted campaign on Twitter by a poster who appears to have fairly close links to a number of Tory MSPs, but that's by the by. 

 

My point was that I really don't think this nonsense is worth airtime on our national news when there's far more important issues being glossed over. 

you are now the one using distraction tactics

Utter nonesense. People get involved in politics then cry about bully boy tactics need to have a look at themselves and decide if the environment they have involved themselves in is right for them. Politics is not for the light hearted. 

 

Don't even know where to begin with this. You reckon the behaviour of Godley or Salmond among others is an issue because people are too "light hearted"?

She’s brought this on herself. I was completely unaware of her pre covid but it seems folk have been pointing her vile views out for years and been getting piled on in response. Racism is abhorrent but so is blind nationalism like yours.

The entire cast of Mrs Browns Boys should probably be executed.

Can we extend the executions to all involved in reality TV and any mentions of Facebook ?

Yep. However you have to defend folks right to free speech even if you don’t like what they say or even the person your defending. Some of the more woke folk actually think they are the enlightened ones. However I would completely disagree with that. Folk who will defend free speech no matter who the person is are the enlightened ones.

Sturgeon has given her credit for her dignified response when she knew these posts were out there and tried to ride it out and foolishly hoped they wouldn't surface.

If she was that sorry, she would've dealt with them when cakes out fir it rather than the pile on she probably helped execute.  

Only sorry for getting caught

Completely agree with him until he starts to represent a party that wants to limit freedom of speech in your own home. Then he becomes a hypocrite.

Not sure what you're referring to, Ron? He signed an open letter against Humza's hate bill, FWIW.

Have seen things being pointed out a few times about her in the past, however pile ons were mostly Rangers fans getting called out for sharing fake tweets suggesting she'd said even worse things. You'd have thought though that after having some fake ones do the rounds she'd have had the common sense to remove the old ones. 

 

Looking at the tweets and context from what i have seen in the paper I'm not necessarily convinced her comments/views were from a position of vile hatred. They were not politically correct and belittled people for how they looked and/or sections of society. It looks/sounds very immature and low brow humour and i think it's important to keep that in perspective.

 

Edit -

That said - she's being punished and called out for it which is right. She's apologised for it which is also the right thing to do. 

 

There is a level of irony IMO that a lot of people who are attacking Godley would have called this takedown political correctness gone mad.  Having seen a number of the things that have come out it looks like there's a lot of non SNP supporters and Rangers fans who are going for the jugular. 

 

So general conclusion - marmite (not very good) comedienne taken down by a twitter pile on mostly by some hypocrites.

Some folk are suggesting that Janey shouldn't be punished for her offensive stuff as she's a "comedian".

I'm saying that if a comedian aligns itself with a political party that wants to do away with freedom of speech then they set themselves up.

 

Not having a go at RA.

I won’t deny my hatred for that advert has clouded my judgment on her. Some of the things she’s said I’ve probably said in my younger years. To have a go and try defend her on a political stance is madness.

Well it will keep her from signing on the broo for a while 

 

She may be signing on pretty sharpish because her career will now be down the shitter. 

 

Her HIGNFY appearance was totally embarrassing and I must admit I'd never heard of her until that appearance. 

 

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

I disagree, I think comedians should be able to joke about most things. It becomes an issue when they align themselves to political parties or causes and then they are fair game IMO.

I think you will find most are aligned politically. Most on the left playing the dumb right. 

 

But in truth, the sick stuff they come out with. All of them. Jail the lot. Being a comedian should be viewed as a hate crime.

I have made my views on Godley pretty clear on this thread she had nothing to apologise for. As for Alex Salmond the bullying accusations haven’t been proved i any inquiry or court in this land. In fact many were happy to work under him and with him when he had the reigns. Of course he had his methods and ran a pretty tight ship but bullying? Nah. Seems like some scorned arseholes who couldn’t handle the heat decided to Make up false stuff about him IMO.

She’s finished unless she reinvents herself as some mental health guru / redemption story thing

I believe NS has come out in support of  way that she handled apology saying it was dignified.

Think you can rule out investigation.

If she has nothing to apologise for, then why has she?

Comes across as done for comedic effect (i.e. the daughter getting frustrated with her) rather than out and out prejudice, TBH. Whether its funny is, I suppose, completely subjective. But it's hardly a hate-filled rant.

 

I'm pleased someone else is at least trying to see what's going on there.

Now, if she'd had a go at transgender black people, that'd probably be quite a different matter in Sturgeon's book.

Her patter is indeed honking. As is the mock outrage on this thread.

Salmond described by his own QC as a sex pest, a bully and a creep. Nevermind the 9 women who were prepared to go to court. This was sadly the culture of thr party and salmond had carte blanched. Several others were also charged with similar indiscretions. Godley has apologised but you still defend her. Your attitude is deeply worrying and offensive to the victims.

A majority female dury plus female judge proceeding found the accusations “not proven” which is as close to innocent as one can be in Scotland.  He has been found guilty of nothing. Not only that but they threw the full weight of the legal system behind them and still couldn’t convict him. The media went after him as well and guess what? Still “not Proven” The women involved didn’t even want the charges against Salmond to go ahead. I believe he was inappropriate against some women. How inappropriate we will never know I suppose but clearly not illegal. And yes I believe many lies were told to try and get him. 
 

Salmond has been through enough and I admire him and treat him like the innocent man that he deserves to be. If he can’t rebuild his life after going through a “fair” legal trial then wtf is the point in it all?

Furthermore we are now arguing whether he was a rapist, a sex pest , a creep or a bully. Take your pic but says more about you. My orinignal point was about the culture of bullying.
