Liverpool winger Ryan Babel posted a mocked-up picture of Howard Webb on Sunday on the social networking site Twitter.
The image showed the referee wearing a Manchester United shirt, along with the words: “And they call him one of the best referees? That’s a joke. SMH (shaking my head).”
Babel apologised for the post later that same [...]
Diamond also kept stating that Barclays was a well managed bank that came through the crisis in good shape. This is a myth. Barclays had made $22.9bn in write downs by the first quarter of 2010.
The upcoming release of Never Let Me Go, adapted from Kazuo Ishiguro’s widely acclaimed novel, will doubtless prompt a familiar anxiety in cinema audiences. Palms will sweat over plot deviation, expletives will be uttered about the casting of Keira Knightley. The fear that a film will butcher a beloved book is so widespread that you [...]
Inflammatory rhetoric is something that, recently, I’ve been thinking about a great deal; about its capacity to drown out more reasoned political debate, and to give rise to rage. Following the shooting of the Democrat congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the death of six members of her audience at a public meeting, the Republicans are currently [...]
The old adage which you hear on the training ground that the ‘team comes before the player’ needs to be thrown out of the window.

There is no excuse for the crimes to which Eric Illsley has pleaded guilty to day. He compounded the offence by standing for re-election in Barnsley Central last May when he should have known that this was how his career would end.
Even so, I can’t pretend to be glad to witness his self-destruction, because of [...]
Esteemed Colleague Steve Richards has entered the debate between Gordon Brown Mk I and Gordon Brown Mk II.
GBI, you will remember, was the stickler for Prudence who, when the government raised £22bn from the sale of 3G licences in 2000 which now allow people to do clever things with smart phones and iPads, used it to [...]
As soon as someone used the phrase, “of biblical proportions”,* I knew that there was trouble ahead. Yes, it’s number 483 in the celebrated series of Questions to Which the Answer is No, asked by Daniel Nalliah at the Catch the Fire Ministries.
Thanks to Gwenhwyfaer.
*And thanks to tykejim in the comments for pointing out that [...]
I can only describe Friday evening as the re-birth of a movement. It was the launch of ‘The Equality Movement’, established by myself and hip-hop artists Logic and Lowkey, and the room was packed with 600 people, with an overwhelming proportion of youth and ethnic minorities.
Peterborough v Brentford
Lay under 1.5 goals @ 4.2 to one with Betfair
Regular readers will know that Peterborough have been my banker team for getting goals this season. Their 11 home games have featured an incredible 54 goals. I’ve stayed off them for a few weeks because the manager went on record [...]
