Drunk foot­baller strikes blow for equal­ity

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Warn­ing to all mums: Pre­pare to feel in­ad­e­quate. That paragon of moth­er­hood, Vic­to­ria Beck­ham, has been of­fer­ing help­ful tips on af­ter-school snacks. Toasted seeds doused in a fancy ver­sion of soy sauce called Liq­uid Ami­nos is just per­fect for those peck­ish weans. She even shared a pic­ture of what looked like the bot­tom of a budgie cage. Yum. Bet they’re still so hun­gry that they ri­fle the crisps cup­board when she’s busy boast­ing on In­sta­gram. Buck­fast-flavoured sweet­ies. What bright spark came up with this idea? Here we are try­ing our best to turn around Scot­land’s ter­ri­ble record with al­co­hol by in­tro­duc­ing a min­i­mum pric­ing pol­icy and is­su­ing end­less guid­ance on safe drink­ing lim­its. Mean­while, big jars of sweets are be­ing pro­duced, flavoured like the no­to­ri­ous tonic wine. Ge­nius. Let’s in­tro­duce our kids to the taste whileile they’re still too young to bevvy. Er, no. Let’s get back to soor plooms. The col­lapse of Monarch is dev­as­tat­ing enough to its 860,000 cus­tomers, some 85 per cent of whom now face a re­fund bat­tle. But it will ease their pain not a jot to learn air­line boss An­drew Swaffield has set up a new firm. His new con­sul­tancy busi­ness was in­cor­po­rated on the day the air­line went into ad­min­is­tra­tion. It’s named Al­cedo, af­ter his polo team, if you don’t mind. Ev­ery man for him­selff – and chief ex­ec­u­tives first. I’m lov­ing Craig Revel Hor­wood’s makeover as ghastly Miss Han­ni­gan in a stage pro­duc­tion of the mu­si­cal An­nie. The 6ft 2in Strictly judge is re­mark­ably con­vinc­ing as a red­head with a vi­cious streak. Can’t think where he prac­tised his nas­ti­ness… Craig says he’s not do­ing a drag queen act, he’s play­ing the part as a woman. We no­ticed. Is it me or is it quite an­noy­ing that he looks so darn good? He’s a quick roots dye-job away from leav­ing the Strictly judg­ing panel to join Loose Women.

You know you’ve crossed a line when you get blind drunk in a kids’ theme park.

Plus, the player in­volved was a US Olympic gold medal­list called Alex Mor­gan. And that’s Alex as in Alexandra.

Yes, the “rowdy” rev­eller was a mem­ber of Team USA ladies’ soc­cer squad. Wit­nesses say she yelled about know­ing the Or­lando SWAT team as she was es­corted from the Dis­ney pub.

Bet she’s feel­ing a bit Goofy now. Still, we can claim this episode as a blow for equal­ity: The day women foot­ballers got to be­have as badly as male play­ers.
