news


This week has seen another professional footballer hitting the headlines following some drunken escapades on a night out.

This time the player in question is Ledley King, who plays for Tottenham Hotspur but in the recent past we have seen similar stuff from players on the books of various clubs.

Of course, it often seems to be players of London clubs making most of the news but then again most of the paparazzi frequent the capital’s hotspots so I guess that shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

Firstly, I’d like to make it clear that I didn’t listen to Russell Brand’s show which has caused all the rumpus this week - which means I’m in pretty much the same boat as most people who have complained about it.

I first heard about this at the start of the week, over a week since the show was broadcast, and at that point only two listeners had lodged complaints - and neither of them were actually about the Andrew Sachs phonecall.  Later yesterday, that figure had increased to around 1,500 and it’s now totalled 10,000.

Yes, I have been lazy in not posting for about three weeks but I’m back and it will never happen again I promise (bear in mind that promises made on a blog are not binding).

It was reported all over the place today that Peaches Geldof has got married.  Now, it’s polite to wish people well in such circumstances but I really couldn’t care less to be totally honest.  Had she not been the daughter of Sir Bob Geldof, I wouldn’t even know her name never mind what she does - in fact, what does she do? I really have no idea.

Let’s think about this logically.

A year or so ago, Fern Britton was a well known, well rounded lady.  She started to look a little thinner and thinner until it was noticeable she had lost a significant amount of weight.

The general public who until that point had applauded her for being proud of being a bigger lady, now applauded her for her amazing weightloss.

Personally, I didn’t think or applaud anything as it doesn’t really bother me either way, nor is it any of my business.

A bit harsh perhaps, but it’s how I feel about the whole affair at the moment.

For those not familiar with the story, Andrea Smiley of Paisley has appeared in court after her pet Alsatian was found dead in her home.

Neither Miss Smiley nor her dog had been seen for a while when neighbours noticed a strange smell coming from her flat. A telephone call to the police ended with them breaking down the front door, fearful that she could be lying dead inside - what they found wasn’t Miss Smiley, it was the body of her poor dog which she had left there to die.
