Richard Little John: How That?Michael Vaughn is not guilty until proved guilty

What happened to the presumption of innocence? Horace Rampole’s “Golden Thread of British Justice” has been a headache many times in recent years.

The latest prominent victim is former English cricket captain Michael Vaughn, who finds himself thrown into the outer darkness with unproven accusations of racism.

both BBC And BT Sport yesterday excluded Vaughan from coverage of the Ashes series this winter in Australia. His radio five show with Filter Funel had already been pulled.

The BBC quoted the “editorial reason” for dismissing Vaughan from the Test Match Special Team.

Both the BBC and BT Sport yesterday removed Vaughan from coverage of the Ashes series this winter in Australia.

BT Sport planned to use commentary from the Fox network in Australia. However, because Fox’s lineup includes Vaughan, BT now states that it will make alternative arrangements unless he is dumped.

The broadcaster’s enthusiastic rush to stay away from Vaughan came as a result of tears testimony from former Yorkshire cricket player Azimurafick to the Commons Special Committee.

Obviously, cricket has serious problems with its avant-garde attitude towards race, not only in certain dressing rooms, but also at the highest levels.

Leaders are already rolling and official investigations are underway. But that’s no excuse for Jimmy Savile-style witch hunting for individuals who have been accused of being just hearsay.

The allegation to Vaughan is that when he was the captain of Yorkshire in 2009, he told a group of Asian players:

Some teammates support Raffic’s claim, while others do not. Since none of us were there, we probably can’t know what was said or in what context.

Vaughan may be a paid member of BNP, but I doubt it. After Raffic’s testimony, I don’t believe Monty Panesar, a British cricket player in Punjab’s legacy, praises Vaughan’s human management skills and believes his former captain is racially discriminatory. I heard you talk to the radio.

Whatever the truth, his claim falls under the lower limit of scale. He wasn’t in the habit of wearing a white hood and taking him to the field to plant a burning cross in the middle of a ridiculous place.

Vaughan categorically refutes the version of Raffic’s event. However, he has been denied due process.

We are back here in the’always believe in victims’ area.

Vaughan’s personality and career have been annihilated by “evidence” that would be disputed as unacceptable in court. Even murderers and rapists are entitled to proper protection.

A single “racist” statement that he is said to date back 12 years. And as her mage recently said in various situations: memories may change.

Vaughan, a prominent former England captain who won Ash in 2005, may have thought he could at least benefit from a fair hearing. Of course, we have been on this dangerous path before.

Have you learned from the disgraceful Operation Eutree and the Blitzkrieg of Operation Midland the lessons of “historical” sex crimes that have ruined the lives of innocent men and their families?

Didn’t anyone at the BBC think about the injustices piled up on Paul Gambaccini and Tony Blackburn, who weren’t blamed during the post-Jimmy Savile panic?

Apparently not. The usual rules no longer apply to accusations of racism and sexual misconduct. Cucking stool justice is the order of the day, purely on Twitter to soothe the anonymous burning torch mob.

There is no presumption of Vaughan’s innocence. Chuck him on a bonfire. However, there is a problem with Rumpole’s golden thread. When you pull it, things start to unravel, as Raffic himself quickly discovered.

Immediately after his testimony to the MP, it became clear that he was not completely innocent.

The Times unveiled an anti-Semitic message posted to fellow cricket players on Facebook in 2011. For his honor, he deeply apologized, and his supporters, his derogatory remarks about the Jews, cricket.

True, it shows the danger of judging a man with unwise, tasteless, defenseless comments made in the dim and distant past.

Unfortunately, such generosity does not extend to Michael Vaughn.

A self-proclaimed anti-racist who demands that Vaughn should be “cancelled” forever is worse than paying attention to the measured reaction of President Marie van der Jill of the Board of Deputies of Britain. May do.

She acknowledged that Raffic understood the wounds he had caused and said: “His apology certainly seems heartfelt, and there is no reason to believe he is not completely honest.”

Thank you for having at least one adult in the room. Unlike the usual social media Lynch mob reaction to their quarry, she didn’t demand that Raffic become a Paria and lose his livelihood forever.

People do and say stupid things, especially when they are young. The belief in forgiveness and redemption is the foundation of any civilized society.

We already have a criminal rehabilitation law. This effectively eliminates the previous conviction, depending on its severity, after a period of time.

To bring peace to Northern Ireland, the government has issued a “letter of comfort” that guarantees that hundreds of running terrorists will not be prosecuted.

If Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness were to put the past on the table, Michael Vaughn could continue to be part of the Test Match Special Team and his reputation wouldn’t be compromised.

Especially because the charges against him are groundless and have not been tested in court.

If Vaughan is still playing and given an LBW, he has at least the right to appeal to Hawkeye and Third Umpire.

Therefore, he should have been given the opportunity to provide appropriate defenses as well, before the sentence was sentenced and taken to the place of execution.

Scrutinizing the past for “historical” anger is tearing society apart. It’s time to declare an amnesty and remember that “golden thread.”

Not guilty until proved guilty.

With his thumbs up, he sent three sombrero to Congressman Scott Benton of Redwall Tory. He asked Labor’s showoff, Stella Creecy, why he thought he could bring the baby into the Commons room.

A female member of his Blackpool South earns less than one-third of her salary, but can still arrange childcare.

accurately. Where would it end if all MPs worked their descendants? What if some Hon members Kevinte Teenager are excluded from school? Can he sit on a green bench while playing Grand Theft Auto on his iPad?

Why is it because parliamentarians spend most of their time in the room and appear to be tapping their cell phones?

Carrie immediately threw Wilf to Boris while he was busy saving the lobster from torture. The Commons are like one of the scariest suburban pubs where screaming kids can run around the bar, tap pints, and pack pizza everywhere.

Be careful, after seeing the unruly PMQ a few times in the past, dozens of runny nose children may actually raise the tone of the place.

Westminster is consumed by the No. 10 Disirisi rift and the “Chati Pig” hunt. Are people outside of North Circular aware, let alone M25? Most people on the red wall think that the talkative pig is the A57 transport cuff outside the worksop. Treble bacon banjo all-round!

Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, complains that television priests are always portrayed as villains or idiots.

This would be the same as Justin Welby, who recently compared climate change to the Holocaust, got stuck for Megan Markle, did not warn police to the pedophile priest, and moved heaven and earth to stop Brexit. ..

So which are you, Bish: Rogue or stupid?

Love in a warm climate

Ice cap melting, tsunami, boil plague. You name it, someone will blame it on climate change. But until now, no one suspected that rising temperatures were causing the divorce rate among albatrosses to rise. This is due to research by scientists at the University of Lisbon.

You couldn’t make up for it. Who knew that the albatross got married? Apparently warm water puts them immediately from mating. No one seems to be talking to the Love Island contestants.

In the wake of Cop26, Weaverney is embracing the Green Agenda to boost her plunging approval rating. Judging from this photo, she has already participated in Extinction Rebellion.

How long does it take for her to glue to Kingston Bridge in Glasgow to support British insulation?
