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.

Criminal Kovacevic sentenced for speeding

leave a comment »

Yet another scummy waste of space footballer thinks he is above the law that the rest of have to live within, and that his ridiculous pay give him the right to do as he pleases:

A footballer caught speeding at almost 100mph through a city centre has been ordered to carry out community service.

Dundee United defender Mihael Kovacevic was caught driving at 95mph in a 40mph zone on Dundee’s East Dock Street.

He claimed he had been confused over the speed limit – mistaking a 70mph sign on an adjacent railway line with the signs beside the road.

Clearly he is also delusional if he thinks anyone was ever going to swallow the rubbish he offered as an excuse.

Police found his Audi A8 4-2 Quattrohad been driven at a top speed of 95mph in a 40mph zone.

When he was stopped and told why the police wanted to speak to him he immediately said ‘I was just testing my car’ – so he thought they were mugs that should have been impressed by him too!

It’s a shame he was not sent to jail…

He was only ordered to carry out 100 community service, fined £700 and banned from driving for 14 months. So no key to be lost for his cell, and a fine that means nothing to his income.

They should take footballer’s cars and crush them – with no appeal.

And if they are leased or on payments, they should be be made to pay the lot at once, so the car is their property – and jailed if they don’t cmply.

Go Gaza go… please!

leave a comment »

I see the judge removed Paul Gascoigne’s legal ability to drive by banning him immediately after he appeared in court, having been found to have FOUR time the legal limit for alcohol in his blood.

BBC News – Jail warning for Gazza for drink driving

What I don’t understand is why this piece of rubbish was not just sent straight to jail, where he could have sat and waited in comfort for his trial to come up.

Instead, he’s free to wander the streets, and drive again – celebrity trash has a record of ‘forgetting’ they are not legally entitled to get behind the wheels of their expensive toys – and has proven he’s not responsible.

The case should not be about whether or not he goes to jail this time – it should merely be about how long for, and how hard it can be made to find the key when his time is up.

Rubbish Gascoigne

leave a comment »

There are times when I raise my eyes towards heaven, and thank god I hate football. Of all the semi-legitimate sports, it seems to attract the lowest form of life, which can con its fans into worshipping it, while breeding low-lives that are more likely than most to kill or maim its fans one day.

Footballers almost seem to see the purchase of fast cars from their ridiculous and obscene pay, and then consider themselves above the law, and drive them way over the speed limit, or when drunk, and not bother with such trivialities as insurance or a driving licence.

One past master at being offensive is Paul Gascoigne, who has just been charged with drink-driving, driving without insurance and driving without a licence.

I don’t suppose there even the slightest hope he’ll get a magistrate or judge on his case that’s also a football (or even a footballer) hater, and decides to make an example of him, and throw the key away for a few years, so the rest of us can have some peace, and not be subject to news about this sort of rubbish for a while.

Oh…

Have a look at the photo Yahoo News attached to their story – the text says Gascoigne is 42 years old.

The photo looks more like someone about to start collecting their pension!

Court conned by fame connection?

leave a comment »

By all accounts, Andrew Tweedy is a reformed habitual drug user and convicted criminal.

Yet after emptying a pepper spray into the face of someone who appears to have been a stranger to him, he walked free from court with a 36-week suspended sentence.

How can anyone with a history of crime that should mean he is locked up and out of our way for years walk free after such a further combination of offences?
The court heard that Tweedy, who describes himself of the “black sheep” of his family, had been carrying the pepper spray to protect himself after he was attacked in the city.

Barrister Paul Caulfield said Tweedy – who has been convicted on 30 occasions for 82 separate offences since 1993 – was “very well known” in Newcastle, and suffered as a result of having a famous sister, pop star Cheryl Cole (who had nothing to say when asked to comment).

At an earlier hearing, Tweedy, 29, pleaded guilty to common assault and possession of a prohibited weapon, the pepper spray. He was given a suspended sentenced of 36 weeks in prison by the Recorder of Newcastle, Judge David Hodson, and will also have to pay his victim £250 compensation and carry out 100 hours of unpaid work.

Well, that’s going to persuade him from carrying on and committing further unprovoked attacks and offences, or taking drugs, isn’t it?

I wish I had a famous celebrity relative.

Footballer on 120mph speed charge

leave a comment »

Reported by the BBC, it ooks like another filthy arrogant footballer has discovered that they might not be the exalted god that their ridiculous pay packet makes them think they are, and we’ll have to wait for a while to see if he can find someone to share his ill-gotten gains with, and see if he can get himself off these charges for putting us ordinary folk at risk.

Like all these dangerous, pig-headed wasters, there shouldn’t be any option of having the case continued, or of any other such right being accorded to them for this sort of behaviour, and it should be straight off to jail if the police present evidence – especially for 120 mph.

God knows how fast he was actually travelling, as it’s usual for a lesser speed to be quoted on the chrage, so they can’t pay their lawyer to claim they were travelling slower than the recorded speed and that the equipment and method were inaccurate in such a way as to influence the result – he was probably really doing closer to 130 or even 140 mph.

An Aberdeen footballer has appeared in court charged with driving dangerously at speeds of up to 120mph.

Lee Miller, of Perth, made no plea to the charge when he appeared at Stonehaven Sheriff Court.

It is alleged Mr Miller drove at speeds of up to 120mph in a 70mph zone on the A90 Aberdeen to Dundee road on 30 March.

It is also alleged he drove at up to 90mph in a 40mph zone. The case was continued until October.

The criminal Katona dynasty

leave a comment »

God knows how much the irritating Kerry Katona thing actually has if she can have an unpaid tax bill of £82,000 from an initial sum of £417,00.

The case had already been before the court four times, and two weeks ago Mr Registrar Nicholls set Thursday as a deadline for Miss Katona to find the money.

Four times! And she didn’t even have the decency to turn up in court and beg for another extension. No wonder the taxman laughed when her representative said the funds were available but the cheques hadn’t cleared – sure, “The cheque’s in the post.. really… it is… honest… I posted it myself… honest… cross my heart and…”

Bollocks!

This dates back to January, she’s fiddling her taxes, and now she’s caught.

What does this whining waste of skin do to be paid that sum?

Actually, it seems the answer is that she’s part of a family of crooks, and she’s gone down the bankruptcy route to evade her tax bill, after being well trained by her mother, Susan Katon, who’s a benefit fraud and admitted wrongly claiming income support and council tax benefit at Runcorn Magistrates Court.

What a bunch of crooks and wasters – the daughter’s trying to cheat the taxman and getting money for doing nothing, and the mother busy cheating the benefit system, and using her daughter’s name to con people out of many, and still claim benefits that you and I pay to support.

Just lock them up and throw the key away.
