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.

Twice as bad with Elvis

leave a comment »

Fat, overweight, drug soaked, died-on-the-bog king of nothing Elvis Presley did Britain a great service by only visiting it and despoiling it once, or so the relatively good news used to be.

The story of his flying visit when his plane landed at Prestwick (so, the Scots aren’t always the lucky ones) and the creep was seen wasn’t the only time his presence disgraced the Great Britain.

Now it seems the misery for the land has just doubled, and Mr Greasy was here twice…

Veteran rock star Tommy Steele has admitted he took Elvis Presley on a secret tour of London in 1958.

For more than 50 years, brain-dead Presley fans have believed the only time he ever set foot in the UK was during a stop-over at Prestwick Airport in March 1960, (and tried to convince the non-brain-dead that he’s still alive and well somewhere, rather than still trying to flush himself down a toilet somewhere).

But theatre producer Bill Kenwright revealed Steele’s secret on Radio 2.

In a note passed to the Daily Mail, Steele said he “swore never to divulge publicly” what took place and he “regrets” that news leaked out.

The 71-year-old, who is currently appearing in a production of Dr Dolittle in Woking, said: “I can only hope he [Presley] can forgive me.

Mr curl-up-and die-on-the-toilet might, but the rest of us don’t forgive you for letting slip that the disgrace to humankind has now doubled his time here, and made the place just a little bit dirtier than it was before.

How the heck anyone can have any admiration for someone like that is beyond me. If he’s been my boy I’d have done the decent thing years before, and shot him, and them myself for bringing him into the world.

Jordan bu(r)sts out

leave a comment »

Another waste of skin, and what a lot of skin in some places, JORDAN is now forcing her abhorrent and gross carcase into our faces on the front covers of any magazine that will let this media whore collect a few more pieces of silver to finance her, and her plastic toy-boy’s life style. The saddest thing as these things are allowed to breed – you can only the pity the kids and what they will become in the future, with parents like that.

After spending her past life forcing larger implant upon larger implant into her chest to keep herself propped up somewhere around the top of the media spoil heap, she’s now getting herself headline billing one the celebrity rags by proclaiming “I’ve ruined my body” or some similar rubbish.

WHAT DOES SHE EXPECT?

Nobody twisted her arm up her back and forced her onto the plastic surgeon’s table! She did it all on her own and for no reason other than to get attention, or rather money. Anyone with more than the celebrity single brain cell knows that boob jobs have consequences, and if you’re going to get the job done, and done repeatedly to extreme, then hell mend you if you suffer the consequences.

IT’S STILL GOING ON THIS WEEK!

Obliged to walk past those damned celebrity vermin magazines on the way to the supermarket checkout, there’s little, sorry BIG miss ‘I can cover my nipples with a piece of string and get all the photographers to watch in case I slip’ adorning their covers for the second week running, and having told us she’d ruined her body last week, this week there’s some drivel about ruining her life or something to be had.

It just makes you wish that rubbish like this would turn into something useful like a ding beetle, and go crawl away and give the rest of peace, and a break from having to see them, no matter how much we try an avoid it.
