John Terry Not Guilty

Chelsea's John Terry has been found not guilty of racially abusing Queens Park Rangers' Anton Ferdinand. Looks like Terry's lawyer is as good a defender as he is.

The trial gave us some interesting headlines as it went along. The front of The Mirror told us Terry said "it was sarcasm not racism."

Of course it was. We totally believe you. Oh wait, THAT was sarcasm. "Of course it was. We totally believe you, you white honkey." That was racism. Easily confused.

The Sun told us John apparently called Anton "a black c***" after Anton said to John "you s*****d your mate's missus".

This whole story is like a guess the missing word quiz. Normally I do the crossword word but I don't need to bother now. Saying that John had done that was hardly a jibe, it was pretty much ghost writing his autobiography.

Mr Terry didn't deny calling him "a black c***" but he said he isn't a racist. In fact he calls some if his best friends black c***s.

Westminster Magistrates' Court heard that, as the pair traded insults, he thought he heard Mr Ferdinand say he had been sworn at in racial terms. Mr Terry claims he was repeating the words that Mr Ferdinand mistakenly thought he had used.

That is a stroke of genius and it is how I will insult people in the future. When I get bad service in shops and that's pretty much every time I go shopping, it will go like this.

ME: Did you think I just told you to 'f*** off you kn**-faced Aldi c***'?
HIM: No, I didn't hear you say anything.
ME: Oh, just checking.

So, the court case is over and in the words of a BBC correspondent Terry can now "go back to letting his feet do the talking". And as long as his feet never learn racist sign language, he should be OK.
