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.


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


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.

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.


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!

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.

Sick racist bitch girlfriend provides mitigation for assault

leave a comment »

If you want to try an get off with assaulting some poor bugger, get yourself a golf club, and a dumb stupid thick fat evil racist bitch girlfriend, after making sure you let the media know she has “advanced and life threatening” cervical cancer, even if you have to go and have it given to her, which as a celebrity, you will consider and acceptable thing to do in order to get into the news.

That what a thug called Jack Tweed, 21, of Buckhurst Hill, Essex, who was on Channel 4’s Celebrity Big Brother with girlfriend Jade Goody did – although he still ended up with 9 months behind bars.

You’d have to admit that that isn’t really much of a sentence – if the auld git set about somebody’s head with a golf club, then after the fractured skull that the first whack would cause, the all would be for an undertaker – not a paramedic.

These people are just scum, and should be taken away somewhere, lost and then forgotten.

I didn’t approve of this sort of thing before, and still don’t for ordinary people, even criminals, but for celebrity trash like this, something along the lines of being dragged along the public streets in chains, or being stoned (little stones that is, we don’t want to get too uncivilised, but we are dealing with celebrities) in public.

You could sell tickets, and maybe even the stones, say a bag of 50 for a tenner – sounds like god value to me, and the money could go to their victims.

Queen of Mean to walk

leave a comment »

I doubt it.

Ann Robinson seems to have become a multi-millionaire for doing… er… um…

Sorry, I have no idea, all she does is make me jump for the remote to change the programme if I’m unfortunate to catch sight of her well stretched plastic surgery when it forces itself onto my screen when changing channels.

However, the good news is that she’s been handed a driving ban after finally succeeding in totting up enough penalty points.

This is long overdue, because all the other points she amassed on the way to that ban appear to have been for speeding too.

In typical TV celebrity vermin mode, the arrogant harridan attempted to lie to the court and the judge by claiming that when she committed the final offence that earned her that ban, she, according to her counsel, was disoriented and not aware of the 30 mph limit that applied in the area she was zipping through at 43 mph.

Only a TV celebrity that thinks that the sun shines out of her backside would be arrogant enough to thing that the court was so simple-minded that it would thing that a admitting NOT paying attention by a speeder with multiple convictions was a reason for mitigation.

UPDATE ANN – next time the surgeon is tightening up that facelift, even though he’s at the other end of your body from where your brains are, have him stick a brain cell or two in anyway, and you might realise that since you were already a convicted speeder, the worst thing you could do was admit you weren’t paying attention while you were driving. You should have been crawling along at 30 mph, or less, unless you were rock-solid certain that the limit where you were driving was higher.

Aristocrats want to be celebs too

leave a comment »

While peasants like you and me would end up in court, and have the keys thrown away automatically as we were carted off if we were found on a 450 mile trip with almost four times the legal alcohol limit in our bodies, the aristocracy reckons that they should be classed as celebrities, and allowed to swan off to a holiday camp instead- even though they already had a six month ban for speeding offences, and that’s a series of speeding offences, not just one. As well as being disqualified, that means driving uninsured as well, so tough luck for anyone hit or killed.

Poor little Katrina Bovill, a 36 year old artist and sister-in-law to the Earl of Hopetoun, was stopped by police on the A9, and despite the string of offences, and existing sentences, was considered for jail, but this was deferred for six months – maybe the presence of her father, Major Bristow Bovill, was a reminder to the judge to keep him in his place.

Everyone will be glad to know the poor little girlie is off to start a residential five-week alcohol detox programme in the Surrey clinic of Life Works to dry her out, and probably let her start all over again.

As has always been said, its’s not what you know, but who you know.
