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.

Queen of Mean to walk

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.
