On a week where the Queen in London added another milestone to her reign, the Springbok version (complete with his new clothes - although the little boy shouting "he's got nothing on" is struggling to make himself heard over the "Weeeeerrrapeepuulllll" brigade) is once again putting up a front to convince the peasantry that he really is in charge.
Unfortunately for him, he always ends up leaving himself open to question.
Fortunately for him, quite a few keep missing this open goal.
She had no choice - after all, the 'Messiah of the Transvaal' had made quite the accusation against her club.
And unlike the forwards at Easter Road, Dempster rarely fails to hit the target when provoked (ask Neil Doncaster).
The transfer saga involving Scott Allan (as discussed at the time here) was a long and bitter affair that had the two clubs at loggerheads before Celtic stepped in to sign him with an offer that actually matched Hibs' valuation of the player - as opposed to the magic beans Rangers were trying to tempt the Leith side with.
All done and dusted you would think? Time for all parties to move on? However, never one not to pass up on an opportunity of self-propaganda, King resurrected the affair by saying the following earlier today:
"Where I viewed it differently from Hibs was that the initial approach had really come from Hibs.
"They said ‘we know you’re interested in Scott so if you do want to do business let’s do it quickly so we know where we stand’.
"We proceeded to do it quite quickly.
"We were therefore surprised when Hibs’ official response was ‘we will not sell to Rangers under any circumstances whatsoever’."
Many wondered what Hibs' reaction would be to this claim and a few hours later, we got a response from Dempster:
“I took the initial call from Rangers and I can confirm that Mr King’s version of events is not correct.”
Or the not very principled entrepreneur who offered his skills, labour and taxes that played a small part in propping up the Apartheid government of South Africa (one of the most brutal regimes to have existed) and tried to duck out his financial obligations to the South African state once democracy triumphed?
A man no less referred to in a courtroom by a judge as being a "glib and shameless liar"?
You can make up your own mind but the lady from Easter Road is not a convicted criminal.
By bringing up old ground (when he didn't really need to) in order to pull off the crass stunt of blaming someone else for the cack-handed way his club handled the Allan transfer negotiations, King has (not for the first time) served up an egg to be thrown back in his face.
What he hoped to gain from this only he knows. But as his fellow Rangers shareholder, a certain Mike Ashley, wiil tell you, we are not dealing with the world's greatest tactician here.
Were he alive today, you can be sure Niccolò Machiavelli would be doing a revised edition of "The Prince" with a King-inspired chapter of what not to do when trying to outwit your enemy.
Speaking of Mr Ashley, King - as per usual - was not inclined to offer any details about the one issue that would go a long way into convincing sceptics that he can deliver for Rangers football club.
Not only are the club in debt to Ashley with the loan he provided to them nearly a year ago, they are also trading with one arm tied behind their back due to the lucrative retail deal that the Newcastle United owner managed to secure with the previous regime.
At the risk of repeating myself from previous blog entries, Dave King - before winning his egm earlier this year - spoke of having a big warchest that was "north of £20million" to invest in the club and doing "whatever it takes" to one day have them competing for the big honours.
Lest we forget King flaunting his tremendous wealth to a star-struck 'reporter' here - clearly the man is not short of a few bob.... isn't he?
Because surely somebody so wealthy could easily do the one thing that would allow Rangers to effectively 'start again' (no pun intended) by paying off the shareholder who is nothing more to them than a great big monkey on their back?
Ashley has shown himself not to be that interested in the playing side of things at Ibrox with the loan, shares and retail deal giving him a very good poker hand.
Money is his language and an offer to buy him out completely - not renegotiate as after all, the retail deal is said to be one of the best he's ever got for himself - would be the only way to free Rangers from him.
Yet the Springbok King doesn't seem too willing to pawn the crown jewels in order to do this (wine cellars don't come cheap remember). Strange given his boasts of opulent wealth a year ago.
Think about the extra money Rangers could rake in if King managed to buy the retail rights back.
How much more money Rangers could play with if the loan that Ashley gave them is settled?
And how much more leverage King and his directors would have in the running of the club if Ashley's shares are bought off him?
There are some down Ibrox way who will retort that King hasn't done so because "he has to balance all that out against getting a team on the park that can compete".
Only he hasn't really done that has he?
After all, there's no way Scott Allan would be at Celtic had King stumped up with a serious offer for the player - despite the level of spin coming out of Ibrox as to why he didn't sign for Rangers.
Like all the other Scottish clubs outside of Celtic, Rangers manager Mark Warburton has had to wheel and deal in free transfers and loan signings.
And he seems to be doing it rather well given the flying start the club has made in its bid to win promotion to the top flight of Scottish football for the second time of asking.
Bear in mind that it has been argued in the past that had Rangers shown such a prudent approach upon forming as a new club three years ago - instead of paying over the odds wages for over-hyped ringers, the new incarnation would not be in the financial mess it is in now.
So, the playing side is ticking along nicely. Warburton has shown things can be done on a low budget so using the 'warchest' to pay off and get rid of the nemesis that is Ashley would not affect what happens on the field at this current moment in time.
Barring a spectacular collapse, I'd expect Rangers to do what Hearts did last season and win promotion with plenty of points and games to spare.
Any sensible football club director would want to plan ahead for an inaugural season in the Premiership without having to worry about the owner of Newcastle United receiving your retail income along with that loan you owe him.
If King was telling the truth about having a 'warchest' that is "north of £20million" and being prepared to do "whatever it takes", then paying off Ashley and freeing Rangers from his grip should not be an issue.
Referring back to Machiavelli, the former official of the Florentine Republic once wrote: "Where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great."
If the Ashley situation is still dogging Rangers a year from now, we can only assume that King, and the club he is in charge of, may be in some difficulty.
