Does anyone actually believe the Greek police? Aren't they extremely corrupt and generally bent?

Broadly - as the Maguire story on the news moved on to the apparent trial of Ann Sacoolas in absentia, I couldn't help thinking that as a country we're very happy to run down the police and justice systems of other countries when it suits us.

Sacoolas committed a crime in the UK and should be punished.
Maguire it seems did the same in Greece, and I'm not too hasty to suggest he has been fit up, with no evidence to suggest it other than his family claiming so.

Im inclined to believe the Greek police may be less tolerant of Brits abroad but I can absolutely see Maguire saying "Do you know who I am? Here's £200 to forget about it"

Not sure Maguire's "some Albanians injected my sister with drugs"* defence definitely sounds 100% legit.


* or was it that she got stabbed as was the original excuse 'leaked' to the press.

As I understood it his sister got injected with something by some Albanians, she passed out. It's no wonder her brothers kicked off. Maguire and family thought they were being taken to the hospital but ended up at the police station where he claims he offered to pay a fine to get released. Presumably they kicked off again at this injustice, and just wanted to get to the hospital.

I've not heard anything about the police doing anything about this Albanian gang who presumably are doing this on a regular basis to unsuspecting girls.

It just all seems a bit far-fetched, even if it was/is true!

Unlike Maguire, I'm not from Yorkshire, so don't possess an overwhelmimg sense of self importance.

Why do famous people insist on giving TV interviews following scandals? Has it ever helped them in the long run?

Not so much arrested but banned. Barnsley defender Bambo Diaby has been handed a 2 year ban from the game for taking a banned substance.

https://www.barnsleyfc.co.uk/news/2020/ ... statement/

Oddly he was found not guilty of knowingly taking a banned substance but still gets the ban.

He comes across such a quiet and unassuming character, but he's clearly a bit of a cnut.

Going round on Whatsapp it's Greenwood.
Lindermann spoke to Ian Lewis a high profile jew solicitor he personally knows, he said Greenwood took some 17 year old home she’s ended up staying at his over a day her mum has reported her missing, one of her pals has said where she is. The old bill have turned up asking what’s going on and said why haven’t you rang home to let your mum know where you were and she’s said that he wouldn’t let her use her phone or let anyone know where she was, and they’ve carted him off for kidnap.
Got let out at 3am Saturday morning.

Yup, the religion of the lawyer is a key fact in this case well worth pointing out to fit certain narratives... :twisted:
