Some of you will no doubt have picked up on the current trial ( for rape) of Ched Evans , Sheff Utd’s super striker . If not , see here http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/apr/11/ched-evans-clayton-mcdonald-accused
I have 2 questions here , firstly how does it work , you would have thought that being accused of such a serious crime would have resulted in a custodial sentence awaiting trial and secondly if he gets found guilty , I guess an immediate prison sentence , which if it happens next week is likely to seriously affect the Sheff U promotion run in.
I don’t know how many of you saw the Ken Livingstone PPB last night , which regardless of your political stance, was really very good. The thing that strikes me about senior politicians now and Ken is a huge exponent of this , is the tendency to say that I did this , I did that , I’m going to do the other.
Am I the only person who finds it a bit worrying/alarming that Ken says ‘I will reduce fares by 50% ‘ , ‘I put hundreds of police back on the streets’ ‘ I made it safer for cyclists ‘ etc , you get the drift .
Does he actually work with anyone else or does he make all these decisions single handedly , what shall I do today ? I know I think I’ll order a few new bendy buses ……. and then tomorrow , who knows , maybe I’ll declare war on Ashby De La Zouch.
