Posted by sean on February 18, 2019 at 7:06 pm in Have I Got News For You, Leeds United with No Comments


Matt Lucas – the very funny bald one from Little Britain – yesterday tweeted a news article, printed by The Daily Mirror, 27 years ago.

The report – if you can call it that – personally, I would call it poison – focuses on Freddie Mercury’s career and early death.

The text has been written by a certain Joe Haines. Nowadays, I would hope that it would be treated as a hate crime.

Who is Joe Haines, anyway? Looking at the many angry responses to the original tweet, people appear to be unaware who Mr Haines is, what he has done for a career, or even if he is alive or dead.

Thankfully, 27 years on, society has moved on. I wonder if Joe Haines has too? Apparently, he is still living, despite holding views, dating back to before the birth of Christ.

Only this weekend, Altrincham Football Club changed their kit, for one match, in support of LGBT – lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.

I am especially proud of Leeds United, where a group of fans have set up an LGBT group – Marching Out Together – especially for the club, I happen support.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
