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.

Justice – celebrity style for trampy Lohan

leave a comment »

Don’t you just love the special treatment handed out to celebrities – and anyone unfortunate enough to fall somewhere under their shadow?

Lifelong tramp, druggy, and alcohol draining point, Lindsey Lohan, gets thrown into the Betty Ford clinic – really a holiday resort for the rich and famous – and then starts to assault the staff.

Who pays?

Not Teflon Lohan – no way!

Rather, a staff member the sodden so-called ‘star’ lashed out against gets the order of the boot, on a convenient charge of breaking patient confidentiality.

What a crock and set-up.

If that was a sacking offence, then the whole management of the Betty Ford clinic should be out on the street, begging bowls in hand.

If they were honouring that particular rule, then we should never know who is at the clinic, but the managers and owners don’t seem to have any problem with making sure the newspapers, magazines, and other media have a full and up to date listing of who is going in and out of the place, and usually why as well.

But that’s good publicity isn’t it, and good for business – not betraying their own patient’s confidentiality.

For some strange reason I cannot quite fathom, the word ‘hypocrite’ has just come to me. I wonder why?

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!

Amy ‘nearly died after drug binge’ – WHO CARES?

leave a comment »

Blake Fielder-Civil, 27, told THE SUN how the singer’s eyes went blank and she had a fit before she passed out and stopped breathing.

THE SUN? This story wouldn’t have anything to do with a bit of sensationalism and bit of cash by any chance?

He told The Sun how, in panic, he had pulled his then wife’s tongue out of her mouth so she would not bite it, opened her mouth and breathed air down her throat.

HE WHAT? That soundS more like the sort of kinky romp the two would NORMALLY get up to for kicks when on drug-crazed high, and he’s just some sort of…?

The 25-year-old star had started a drink and drugs binge three days earlier in a pub near Heathrow to celebrate the success of her 2006 album Back to Black, the newspaper reported.

So, assuming this rubbish is true, and the waste of skin really did this, then there was nobody holding it down and forcing the drugs down its throat, up its nose, or anywhere else. WHO CARES?

Fielder-Civil, who divorced Winehouse this month on the grounds of her adultery, said the episode was “the most frightening thing I had ever seen”. He had been taking heroin and crack too and was trying to get his wife to go to bed as she had not slept for three days, he said.

So What? The only surprising thing here is that the drugs brought him out of his normal stupor.

What’s the point of taking this story to THE SUN?

The readers can’t read, so they won’t be able to read it, unless there are pictures to go with it, so the only reason can be to make some money, and make the rest of sick.

DON’T CARE!!!

DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

STOP PUSHING THE FREAK IN OUR FACES IN THE NEWS, IN THE PAPERS AND IN THE MEDIA!!!

IT MAKES US SICK EVEN TO LOOK AT IT!!!

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.

George Michael rises to the level of the public toilet

leave a comment »

Filth like George Michael just can’t break their disgusting dirty habits.

Not content with fiddling with others…

It met lover Brazilian Anselmo Feleppa, struck up a close relationship until he killed Mr Feleppa with Aids two years later.

It was outed as homosexual after propositioning an undercover police officer in a public toilet in Los Angeles in 1998. The arrest and subsequent conviction for lewd conduct resulted in a $450 fine and 80 hours community service. Tough luck for the community concerned – with everyone watching their back(sides).

It spoken about the open nature of the relationship, and admitted seeking “anonymous and no-strings sex” on London’s Hampstead Heath. Thank god we know where not to go, or is that a hint as to where to go hunting?

He has made no secret of his use of marijuana, resulting in a number of scrapes with the law in recent years. He told Desert Island Discs his marijuana use could be “a problem” and said he is “constantly trying” to smoke less of the drug.

He was twice cautioned for possessing cannabis after being found asleep at the wheel of his car on two separate occasions in 2006. The same year, he was seen lighting what appeared to be a cannabis joint on a South Bank Show special, saying: “This stuff keeps me sane and happy.”

It’s not to good with cars either, and has had a number of run in with the law over that too…

As a result of one of the incidents, he was also sentenced to 100 hours of community service and banned from driving for two years. In 2007, he was also in the headlines after being accused of colliding with three parked cars and driving off without notifying the owners.

Now…

It’s been arrested in a public toilet for more drugs problems:

Pop singer George Michael has been cautioned by police after being arrested in a public toilet in London for possession of drugs. It was taken to a police station and given the caution for possessing class A and class C drugs.

“A 45-year-old man was arrested on 19 September on suspicion of possession of drugs in the Hampstead Heath area,” a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.

Who in their right mind would want to be near this piece of rubbish?

You’ll either get Aids or something nasty, or run a fair chance of being in some sort of car accident. If they don’t get, then the police might grab you, just for being stupid.
