Terry’s All Gold ?

28 Sep

Not any longer – Mr John Terry retired from international football just before he was found to have racially abused Anton Ferdinand (QPR) in a match about a year ago. Since at his trial the Chief Magistrate Mr Riddle made it clear that Mr Terry escaped conviction primarily on account of the burden & standard of proof – in short (I summarise) that although Mr Terry wasn’t impressive, the Beak couldn’t be sure that he had done as alleged. As the Court may have anticipated, a ‘conviction’ of the footballing authorities was more-or-less inevitable.

Some think Mr Terry got off lightly – apparently he doesn’t.
