Clueless 'news' organisations and RF doping scandal continues
« on: December 21, 2018, 11:40:00 PM »
Hands up you thinks this is an 'English' flag ?



RT does   - even though it is a somewhat unpleasant representation of a Northern Ireland 'loyalist' flag ... (:)

"The fans are holding a red-and-white English Cross of St. George flag" ...'news' to me ..

Now, remember all that denial and threats to the Russian whistle blower  re the doping scandal ? ..

‘We failed to prevent it:’ Russian President Vladimir Putin on doping scandal

He STILL tries to tell us it wasn't state sponsored ...


But dark clouds are gathering : VVP knows that the RF may be banned AGAIN - for failing to be subjected to the very inspection regime agreed to - but - as of last night, neither VVP or RT had mentioned THAT...

Russian doping: Rusada on verge of suspension again

"Russia's anti-doping agency (Rusada) is again on the verge of suspension after a World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) inspection team was denied full access to a Moscow anti-doping laboratory."

WTF?   I want Russian athletes to complete on the word stage ..on a level playing field ...is there still more to cover up ?

Quite

But that wasn't what was offensive about the Norn Irn flag ( or 'English' )  one used by RT


I note you decided not to comment on the doping issue - given you considered it 'russophobic' before and even VVP admits there were 'issues;, now ..

Given it’s a hybrid flag, carried by unionist, Chelsea, Rangers, NI and pro British fans, it could well be described as an English flag among others. This flag as you well know, isn’t an official flag but a collage of things important to the group.

But don’t let me stop your Russiaphobic posts.

Rosco, why don't you take the time to READ before constantly proving you don't / won't ?

It's most certainly not an 'English flag' and 'I'm sat with two Russians and will celebrate NYE with many more ...

The term you are looking for is possibly 'Kremlinophobe' - given the industry around promoting what is largely bollox

When you are next in N.I. please be my guest to suggest it's an ;English Flag; in a loyalist area  :coffeeread:

I don't know enough about it. I make a point of not commenting on stuff I know nothing about. You should try it.

You should check what you've posted before ... it makes a mockery of what you just said ...

I expect it's that specs issue... check with you're home ...
