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.

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.

Boiled horse voted the ‘LEAST SEXY’ IN SEX AND THE CITY

leave a comment »

Proving that pure tat can make a programme popular, I’ve never seen ‘Sex and the City’, and would never insult myself by choosing to see such rubbish were it not for the endless promotion it receives between other programmes.

One of the things that I’ve never understood is the truly unattractive lead character, who keeps on being promoted as if she was beautiful – she’s not! But has even appeared in adverts for beauty products or perfume – products which clearly don’t work, or if they do, she forgot to use them the day they filmed. Some advert for her own range of overpriced junk.

Clearly an example of promoters trying to maintain a myth by repeating it often enough, but it looks as if it isn’t working any more:

Sarah Jessica Parker has been snubbed by fans of Sex and the City, who have voted her character Carrie Bradshow the show’s least sexy female.

The actress’ cocktail-swilling journalist alter-ego has come bottom of a poll conducted by Pincer Vodka, to mark forthcoming movie sequel Sex and the City 2.

Kristin Davis’ conservative art dealer Charlotte York is the surprising winner, ahead of flamboyant maneater Samantha Jones – played by Kim Cattrall.

Cynthia Nixon’s redhead lawyer Miranda Hobbes claimed fourth place, relegating Bradshaw to fourth, and last, place.

Pincer Vodka CEO Jonathan Engels said: ?We were stunned with the outcome of the poll and we suspect Sarah Jessica Parker might need more than one Cosmopolitan to drown her sorrows.?

So reports The Daily Star Celeb News :: Parker’s Bradshaw voted the ‘least sexy’ in Sex and the City

I’ll carry on laughing at Jeremy Clarkson’s description of this female troll, when he described her as looking like a “BOILED HORSE”.

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!

Katona’s real personality

leave a comment »

You can’t get away from real rubbish, and the Katona waster has revealed its true colours in the past few days.

First caught on video cramming drugs into itself, and coming out with the usual whining of this sort of filthy smackhead, sorry etc etc.

Not sorry about doing drugs, but sorry it got caught.

Now it’s shown it’s violent side, and while it’s already in the eyes of the police for its drug-related offences, it decides to lash out.

Former pop star Kerry Katona has been arrested on suspicion of attacking a man in her home town of Warrington.

A 28-year-old woman from Wilmslow, understood to be the star, was detained at Hawthorne Business Park on Wednesday, Cheshire Police said.

The mother-of-four was also questioned on suspicion of criminal damage and a public order offence.

The former winner of ITV’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! made headlines two weeks ago when a national newspaper published a video of her allegedly snorting cocaine in the bathroom of her home.

Ms Katona was dropped as the face of frozen food chain Iceland following the revelations.

A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: “A 28-year-old woman from Wilmslow has been released and granted police bail until 12 October at 9am pending further investigation.”

She was held at Runcorn custody suite where she will return to answer bail next month, said a police spokesman.

You have to pity the poor police photographer, probably will the next to get beaten up by her – after all, you can only imagine how awful her mug shot will be with that nose of hers, what her face will look like without the photographer being paid to make the shot flattering and hide it.

It’s even the star of her own violent cartoon now, and used to frighten little children into behaving, with the threat of being adopted by it:
