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.

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.

Don’t spill the boxer’s drink!

leave a comment »

There’s a sheriff with an eye for the truth. Summing up the behaviour of yet another spoilt brat, former world champion boxer Scott Harrison…

Sheriff Wood said: “You are the type of people citizens do not want to come across when they are out. You show no respect for others, you could not care less and only think of yourself. With drink in you, you are not wanted. You should all hang your heads in shame.

The court heard the Harrison and two friends had complained about a spilled drink at a bar in Glasgow. Police were called. Hinde and Harrison broke away from the officers but were later arrested. Harrison was cleared of a charge of assaulting PC Iain Gray at a Glasgow city centre police station.

Harrison was sentenced to a mere 200 hours of community service for his actions.

Addressing Harrison, Sheriff Wood said: “You have done well as a professional sportsman but certain pressure got to you and you crumbled. You lost a title and close relationships and were made bankrupt. You had an excellent professional reputation, but you built another one – an unenviable one. I am told that you are trying to get your life back on track. Only there does salvation lie for you.

No example here at all, and all the yobs that think boxing ie battering someone until they are bleeding and senseless in the name of gambling (What? Oh! Sorry… sport) is a good example for behaviour in life will be thinking his behaviour is KEWL.

A few weeks knocked up in a half decent, overcrowded jail, with broken drains would have been far better, and maybe made him appreciate what he had squandered, and the price to be paid if he wants to abuse others.
