A potential life sentence for dangerous driving
at 07:50 26 Jun 2022

New law coming in next week for the maximum sentence for both dangerous driving that kills and dangerous driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and kill to go from 14 years to life. . I can sort of understand it a bit more for the latter of those two situations but the first is very harsh imo. Not sure someone making a genuine mistake for potentially 1 second of their life should cost them the remainder of it behind bars even if they’ve caused a death.

Saw some old boy turning in off a junction to go the wrong way down the motorway a few months back. Now whilst it was an incredibly stupid mistake to have made, if a car had hit him and it killed the other driver, I don’t think him being jailed for the rest of his life is fair when it would have been a genuine (albeit hugely costly) mistake. Perhaps I’m too soft but it just seems harsh. 14 years maximum sentence is enough already. Will need to be an equally tough judge anyway to ever give that maximum sentence even for the most clear cut case of dangerous driving.

Down the 4am Glastonbury/Musical rabbit hole
at 04:42 26 Jun 2022

And I’ve just seen for the first time Amy Winehouses last performance. Now I have a question for those of you who remember the time before her death…

I remember when she died the outpouring of grief. But I don’t remember what the feeling was before she died in the weeks before. Surely seeing as she was publicly performing in that state (see below video), somebody somewhere could have done something to help the girl? Even if she’s turning down rehab as per her song, why was it just allowed that she would turn up slaughtered and out of it to then unsurprisingly die a few days later? Or was it sadly obvious to everyone she was dying in front of the worlds eyes and nothing could be done?

It’s a sad story. I just wonder what the press/public view was in those last weeks because watching that video below is surreal knowing she doesnt even see out that week. Terribly sad.

Little double at Romford tonight
at 18:55 25 Mar 2022

Coral go 6/4 the double. I’d have it around 1/2.

8:38 - Blackrose Tadhg
9:28 - Antigua Princess

For reference, most bookies have them 1/5 and 2/5. The two prices on Coral are 1/2 and 4/6 which is just huge.

My first game of the McKenna era on Saturday
at 23:21 22 Mar 2022

What should I expect? Have heard we don’t concede goals anymore which makes a nice change.

Do we still start games on the back foot though and look nervous as f**k at every opposition corner? Feels like we’ve been doing those two things under the past 15 managers so would be nice to have those sorted if nothing else!

Edit - I’m actually looking forward to seeing those around me. Reckon there’s a chance they’ll have think something happened to me after going to every match for years and then suddenly none for 4 months haha. I might tell them I was attacked by a shark.
