UK NEWS: FOOTBALLER JOHN TERRY WINS BID TO HAVE DINNER WITH BOY BAND JLS (WHAT A FARCE)

February 29, 2012 15 comments

John Terry with JLS and team-mate Ashley Cole

Desperate to prove to the world that he is not racist Chelsea skipper and England’s former captain John Terry apparently bid and paid £16,000 for a dinner with boy band JLS at a charity bash last night.

The event was held to raise money for the Help For Heroes and Cancer Research charities at The Brewery in London.

A grateful JLS later tweeted,

“Cancer research went in tonight!! thanks for John terry for helping to raise over 30k on a JLS lot!excellent work!!”

John Terry has been charged with racially abusing QPR star Anton Ferdinand during a match back in October. Terry is “alleged” to have called Ferdinand a “f**king black c**t.

…..

John Terry bidding and winning a meal with JLS who just so happen to be an all black boy group just seems extremely suspect. And don’t even get me started on that photograph.

I see the PR machine is once again hard at work here. You are fooling no one John.

I would love to be a fly on the wall during that dinner date. What a FARCE!

James Murdoch is to step down as executive chairman of News International newspapers in the UK, it has been announced.
News Corporation confirmed this afternoon that Murdoch, the son of Rupert Murdoch, will no longer chair the board at the group that includes companies publishing The Times, The Sunday Times and The Sun.

He has been widely criticised for his handling of the phone hacking scandal that led to the closure of the News of the World last year, including question marks over how much he knew about the scale of criminal behaviour at the UK newspaper publisher.

Rupert Murdoch, the chief executive and chairman of News Corporation, said that his son will now focus on expanding the company’s pay-TV businesses.

“We are all grateful for James’s leadership at News International and across Europe and Asia, where he has made lasting contributions to the group’s strategy in paid digital content and its efforts to improve and enhance governance programmes,” he said.

“Now that he has moved to New York, James will continue to assume a variety of essential corporate leadership mandates, with particular focus on important pay-TV businesses and broader international operations.” Continue Reading….

James Murdoch has run back to America because he fears he will be arrested and later charged.

News International minions are being fed to the lions while old man Murdoch, his son and Rebekah Brooks seem to be getting away with it. Rebekah in particular knew about her staffs phone hacking practices and the bribing of police officers.  How can they expect us to believe that Rebekah and those above her knew nothing of these practices?
