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.

Go Gaza go… please!

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.

Speeding comedian Kielty laughs at the law

leave a comment »

In a decision that can only have you wondering how many people were paid off, or funny handshakes were exchanges, a piece of rubbish called Patrick Kielty has conned his way out of a driving ban.

While ordinary folk like you and me would be banned automatically for exceeding 100 mph, with no question of an appeal, this waster gets off with the equivalent (for someone on a TV presenter salary) of a pat on the back and a hint not to get caught doing that again in the near future.

The scum doesn’t even have the grace or good sense to keep quiet and skulk away, but has to shove two fingers up to the rest of us by joking about it, and dismissing he result.

“I think it was a fair result,” he said.

“To be honest with you, with the price of petrol at the moment, I was sort of half looking forward to a ban.”

How can it be a fair result if the little rat wasn’t banned!

Apparently Sheriff Thomas Millar said he took into account the impact of a ban on the presenter’s charity work – perhaps while exchanging funny handshakes with the evil liitle man’s lawyer.

His lawyer, Gerald Tierney, said Kielty normally flew and was therefore unfamiliar with the road.

“Having had a busy day working in London, his concentration slipped,” he told the court.

“An error of judgment occurred.”

Ordinary, little, “unimportant” people have the same, and greater problems, and depend on their ability to drive to make a living, not just swan around pretending to work. When they do the same, they lose their licence, their jobs, their livelihoods, even their families.

But…

That’s ok, because they don’t have Mr Kielty’s involvement in “high-profile” charity events and smaller fundraisers such as golf tournaments.

The irony of it all – Kielty should be sent here

Hundreds of speeding tickets totalling more than £18,000 in fines are to be issued for motoring offences during the weekend of a Highlands music festival.

Mobile camera units on routes to Rock Ness, near Inverness, detected about 300 drivers over the speed limit.

Last year, 500 motorists were caught, prompting a warning from the festival’s organisers for revellers travelling by road to drive with care.

Those detected could have three points on their licence and be fined £60.

Postcards issued

The Northern Safety Camera Partnership, which operates speed cameras in the Highlands, said the figures represented a “significant improvement” on last year.

Postcards issued with every festival ticket included directions to the site as well as information about the speed limits for different road types.

Insp John Smith, of the partnership, said: “Our job is not about catching speeders, it’s about reminding drivers of the dangers of inappropriate speed and the risks that they pose both to themselves and to other road users.”

Rubbish funny man Kielty speeds off

leave a comment »

Northern Ireland comic Patrick Kielty has been clocked doing over 100mph on a notorious Scottish road, it has emerged. Mr Kielty, 36, from Dundrum in County Down, has been charged with driving his car at 101mph. He was stopped by police on the A75 close to Newton Stewart, Dumfries and Galloway, on 27 December last year.

The Fame Academy host is expected to make a plea at Stranraer Sheriff Court later this month.

Plea?

What plea!

Do the same as would happen to anyone else – do him automatically for Dangerous Driving, fine him a packet (that he can well afford) and take his licence off him for a year, and make him resit his test before he gets it back too.

Make that TWO YEARS for his driving ban, since the dangerous little fart was caught on a road the Auld Git has to use, and he’d prefer not to have to share it with rubbish like Lielty anyway.

Remember, he’s the funny man that thought it was funny to make jokes about Kate and Gerry McCann and their missing daughter Madeline in his stage show – at least the audience could walk out, since he hadn’t sped into them at 100 mph+ and killed or maimed some of them.
