They should just cancel the next two Ashes test matches. It’s not a contest as England are not even a half-decent opponent.

Still good to see our local bloke, playing his first game, destroying England’s experienced middle order.

You guys should take up lawn bowls, or curling, or something that isn’t cricket…

“You guys”!

This has got nothing to do with me or Scotland, we just reached our first T20 World Cup last year. Instead, we sit back and look on as England get thrashed in yet another sport. It’s a great joy.

Ghislaine Maxwell has been found guilty on five of the six changes she faced:

conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts;
conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity;
transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity;
conspiracy to commit sex trafficking;
sex trafficking of minors.

Though the conviction will undoubtedly be appealed, at this moment she faces the rest of her life in jail. Rightfully so, in my opinion.

A huge victory for all the victims of Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell, and for all of us who have suffered from sexual abuse, to see that even the rich, connected and powerful can be brought to justice and have to answer for their crimes. Must have others quaking in their boots.

Though still trying to avoid Virginia (Roberts) Giuffre’s civil suit in the US, now claiming they lack jurisdiction, not a good day for Prince Andrew.

England failed to learn the lessons needing learnt from the embarrassment of the first Ashes tests by being even more embarrassing and incompetent in the fifth test. All wickets gone for 56 runs after a strong start in their second innings. 

And Novak gets kicked out of Australia after the Australian government realise it doesn’t sit well with their put-upon citizens by letting in someone unvaccinated who’s rich and famous after two years of tough restrictions.

Plus there were Australians who had to wait months to get into the country while this vaccinated rich dude could just breeze in.

England were a total laughing stock. Narrowly avoided a whitewash but by the barest of margins, though they certainly deserved to lose in a whitewash. My 4th grade cricket team would have put up a better fight and demonstrated better application whilst batting.

 

Good riddance Novak. Something like 72% of Australians surveyed wanted him gone, not surprising given how he was coming to Melbourne – a city which went through far more than he realised, I think. Hopefully, because his visa was cancelled, he has to remain locked out for 3 years like anyone normal and not uber-rich would.

If covid numbers have been low and restrictions have been less enforced Novak will be back next year. The only reason he’s been kicked out is the reaction from the people and the government being unhappy at the thought of repercussions.  The Australian tennis people will want him in and the government like the attention and money he brings.

Unless he gets vaccinated I think his career is over. The French Open and US Open require vaccination. He may get in to Wimbledon, but that’s also uncertain.
