A while ago I wrote in praise of Renfrewshire Council's plans for Penilee playing fields and received a string of comments from RFS which were extremely aggressive and abusive, firstly of the council and then of me, these were over a decision by the planning committee not to allow RFS's Rugby Club to relocate to these playing fields, you all thought Donald Trump was a story right ?
A lengthy exchange began of a very bad tempered kind, I suspect that he was probably used to getting his own way judging by the way he set about this 'debate' I know he is not the kind of man to admit it but I think he will now be regretting his actions.
I know that I regret the whole matter but not for the same reasons as him. He may have learned that abuse and bullying can sometimes win the day but it doesn't always work, it certainly doesn't with me, I have done many things in my life which I'm not all that proud of but I'm not yet ready to let someone like him intimidate me, he'll know that by now of course.
Perhaps I should have ignored him as advised by many and perhaps it's a flaw of mine but, he gave me no choice, he chose to go down this road and we both now are dealing with the consequences.
He has now lost all his blogs for the past 3 years because as he puts it his 'finger slipped' it's probably good news for him that my finger has never slipped and I still have them, as well as everything on the 'hate site' called 'terrywatch' that he and the other equally odious characters have been blogging on.
When you read this guy's blogs and comments about himself you immediately realize that you are either in the presence of greatness or 'Walter Mitty' my money's on the latter, 'a vainglorious lout' indeed with apologies to W B Yeats. Based on his reminiscences we should have sent him to Iraq and finished it in a week or so.
The interesting thing now is that we know who he is, we now know the identity of the man who wrote all this stuff, who was so inspirational in the creation and sustaining of 'terrywatch'
He has over the years not confined his 'lash' to me, there are others who have suffered and they are now in a position to revisit his insults and accusations and, unfortunately for him these people are far more powerful and influential than me, all that is needed is for someone to contact them and update them on the present developments, I reckon that the Tory Party have no idea what their Council Candidate has been up to. Someone might fill in the details for them.
Here are two examples of what some of the other members of terrywatch are capable of.
Clairwil deals with and uses Asylum Seekers, she accuses me of hypocrisy for writing sympathetically about them and states that she sent me details of an asylum seeker known to her who was in trouble asking for my help and I did nothing.
The fact is that she was barred from my site which she knew and for that reason I did not even read her comment, it was deleted without it being opened. She did this deliberately to allow her to attack me, that's the kind of person she is, she doesn't think twice about using asylum seekers or for that matter the mentally ill as she did in the past, which got her barred.
She claims to be appalled at the direction of terrywatch but a read through it's past pages makes her a liar.
Will from the SNP did something similar when he condemned me for not blogging about an individual case where a man called Jonathan Ditton was discriminated against because of his sexuality. According to Will I'm guilty because a) it was in the Daily Record and b) because it was in Paisley.
There are about 200,000 people in Paisley and I don't read the Daily Record.
I only found out just how low they were by forcing myself to read terrywatch and I haven't finished reading it yet ! these are examples of the people who are trying to smear me and attack my family, Will also claims to be appalled by recent events but again he is made a liar by reading past posts.
I'm am now in possession of a comment which informs me that 'shotgun' and RFS are the same person, the writer states that Will of the SNP confirmed this to him but would now probably deny it. 'ferrets in a sack' comes to mind or 'rats and a sinking ship' you choose.
