Good. It's not his age; it's that he's a gruesome old nonsense and windbag.

As far as I can tell, he presented no evidence whatsoever to back up his claims.  Nice work for his legal team.

His age is probably the least offensive aspect of the misogynist John McCririck.

He was useless.
I was at a corporate event thing at Uttoxeter a few years ago. He came along and "marked our cards"
I ignored his selections and had 5 out of six winners. The one that I didn't get wasn't the one that he tipped either.

I understood from a racing obsessed friend, that he was a failed bookmaker before finding fame/notoriety, so this comes as no surprise.

To be honest I imagine it was planned as a grand publicity stunt before somebody decides to throw some money at him for his next job.....it is almost Panto season.



The last government were convinced that we were there to do their bidding. They wasted vast quantities of our money in order to spy on us, intimidate us and needlessly over regulate us, whilst gold plating their own pensions and expenses. Their behind the scenes encouragement of, and turning a blind eye to, the kettling and harrassment tactics of the Police are a shameful episode in our history which we need to remember and address urgently. - Haloman
