yes it is a concern that they could be 'show trials'Person of colour complains about racialism, bullying and how badly they've been treated by everyone . Left the team . Moved to a different continent Ghost written book explaining all and earning lots of money
Well isn't it funny that it's not about Mr Rafiq but the ginger one, Prince Harry and his wife Megan who I didn't realise was black until she mentioned it. I hope this doesn't sound racist (either consciously or unconsciously) because I'm not . I am however a bit bored with both stories , though I do share concerns where people have been bullied or subject to raciism. Does sacking individuals because they both defended the club for which they worked and asked for help, constitute bullying? Unfair dismissal certainly . Unlike Mr Rafiq who left because he was no longer good at his job. according to that report.
Moving forward we have the impending show trials for individuals in February/March and and also currently plea bargaining for YCCC's crimes, still presumably, by Lord Patel (just had a picture in my mind of a puppy rolling over on it's back hoping to have it's tummy tickled) . He's leaving the chair at the March AGM . Bit in The Times today confirming that YCCC's constitution doesn't require a member's election for his replacement and the new Chair can be nominated from the board of directors and ratified by the membership.
I'm particularly pleased to see in the Times article that Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson could be emerging as a front-runner. She was the only 2022 director candidate for whom I had no hesitation in giving my vote. I think she has a lot of good attributes and qualities for the position - well known and liked as a leading sports administrator , doesn't live in London ( but Stockton), has a proven track record as an athlete and obviously as she's been on board for months, will have some understanding of the problems facing the club. I don't want to show prejudice but she is not Yorkshire born (actually Welsh), it's the 21st century and although not the first anywhere surely it's time for a Welsh Chair . Oh and obviously she's a lady too and a cross-bench peer in the House of lords. I'd support her election
The longer this farce drags on the more it seems that it is being stage managed by the ECB. Something along the lines of:At least going forward all cricketers of all races will be very careful what they say and how they say it.
He must have been a victim. Otherwise he would have gone on to captain England for many years, won a long jump medal at the Olympics, and become Minister for Overseas Development in his spare time.Alleged victim. Not proven (either way) because of the flawed legal process, which is what we're moaning about. Those who feel victimised must have a right to complain, and be heard; but then those complained against must also have a right to defend themselves, which they haven't been given.
