Lying footballer Paul Grant joins the drunk driver shame chain

leave a comment »

A footballer called Paul Grant has only been banned for drink-driving.

He plays for Hibs, and was only banned from driving for a year after pleading guilty to crashing a car and being found to be twice the legal alcohol limit. He must have lied to somebody, as he also admitted having no insurance when he crashed a friend’s car into a fence in Edinburgh’s Gilmerton Road in the city on March 27 of 2011, after being at a party

A breath test showed 72 micrograms of alcohol. The limit is 35 micrograms.

He was also fined a paltry £435, and was not jailed.

Yet another Teflon footballer slips through the courts with a trivial sentence – and the rest of look to heaven and say a ‘Thank you’ for the fact that his little criminal did not kill someone.

As if it was some sort of excuse, his defence solicitor, Kathleen More, said his 18th birthday had happened four days before the incident and he had been celebrating that at a friend’s house.

Can we take it then that he was either still twice the legal limit as he had been saturated with alcohol from a drunken binge at the party, or that he had just been drinking for four days?

She really showed how stupid she and her client thought everyone else one was, by claiming that as a professional sportsman, she said, he was not in the habit of drinking.

If there was the slightest inkling of truth in that patent nonsense, then he would have been drink driving, or been anything like twice the limit even if he had.

What an insult to anyone that might have been listening.

She added that Grant would face a disciplinary hearing by Hibs and was liable to be fined by them.

SO WHAT?

Sheriff Graeme Warner – obviously a Hibs football fan – allowed Grant to pay the fine at a paltry £40 per month.

WHERE’S THE PAIN OR LESSON IN THAT THEN?

Jail the little liar for a year or two – make the roads safe for the rest of us – AND send a message to all these blasted footballers that think the law does not apply to them.

Twice as bad with Elvis

leave a comment »

Fat, overweight, drug soaked, died-on-the-bog king of nothing Elvis Presley did Britain a great service by only visiting it and despoiling it once, or so the relatively good news used to be.

The story of his flying visit when his plane landed at Prestwick (so, the Scots aren’t always the lucky ones) and the creep was seen wasn’t the only time his presence disgraced the Great Britain.

Now it seems the misery for the land has just doubled, and Mr Greasy was here twice…

Veteran rock star Tommy Steele has admitted he took Elvis Presley on a secret tour of London in 1958.

For more than 50 years, brain-dead Presley fans have believed the only time he ever set foot in the UK was during a stop-over at Prestwick Airport in March 1960, (and tried to convince the non-brain-dead that he’s still alive and well somewhere, rather than still trying to flush himself down a toilet somewhere).

But theatre producer Bill Kenwright revealed Steele’s secret on Radio 2.

In a note passed to the Daily Mail, Steele said he “swore never to divulge publicly” what took place and he “regrets” that news leaked out.

The 71-year-old, who is currently appearing in a production of Dr Dolittle in Woking, said: “I can only hope he [Presley] can forgive me.

Mr curl-up-and die-on-the-toilet might, but the rest of us don’t forgive you for letting slip that the disgrace to humankind has now doubled his time here, and made the place just a little bit dirtier than it was before.

How the heck anyone can have any admiration for someone like that is beyond me. If he’s been my boy I’d have done the decent thing years before, and shot him, and them myself for bringing him into the world.

What’s a Katona?

leave a comment »

Why does rubbish like Kerry Katona get the free publicity to plauge our lives and blight our TV screens with theot horrible faces and lives, as if anyone gives a damn?

Worse still, having done the cocaine thing, they then complain when the media picks up on it and repeats the story.

GET REAL – you’re rolling in it because you were snorting the stuff and it was putting you in the headlines and filling your bank account.

NOW, we’re supposed to be sorry for you because the papers are running a story that you are heading towards bankruptcy. WELL WHO THE HELL CARES??? AND JUST WHERE DID IT START?

You’ve had more money, and are enjoying a better lifestyle than most of the folk dumb enough to think you are worth their attention.

Now you’re going to sicken the rest of us by showing you’re fat and ugly blob of a body naked and in the bath after inviting a camera team into your home – what will you do next? Complain because a camera team followed you into your house and filmed you? IF SO, will you hand back any cash that came from it?

Thank god I never buy anything from Iceland, what a bunch of sellouts they are anyway, using someone who is ‘famous’ for little else than being famous or being a celebrity. And contract renewed too!!!

Katona’s sickening to watch if you’re unlucky enough to catch her grabbing some publicity on TV, as she’ll generally be moaning about the media featuring her drugs past or her throwing her clothes off or something – like she wasn’t lapping it up at the trough of publicity.

Please Iceland, do us all a favour and keep fatty off out screens, just cancel the contract, please.

And Kerry, we really don’t need you to demonstrate the level of your intellectual superiority by offering to fart in the bath for the camera crew. Now tell us you didn’t do that for any reason other than to provide a ‘talking point’ when the programme is being discussed in future.

Scheming, it comes naturally, especially if it might bring in another buck or two.
