Theresa May 'Right' To Give Geoffrey Boycott Knighthood, Says David Cameron

Theresa May 'Right' To Give Geoffrey Boycott Knighthood, Says David Cameron Ex-cricketer Geoffrey Boycott deserves a knighthood even if he was convicted of beating up his girlfriend, David Cameron has suggested. The ex-PM has backed up his successor Theresa May after she nominated Boycott for the honour and the move attracted a tide of criticism from domestic violence charities. Boycott was convicted in a French court for assaulting his former partner Margaret Moore in 1998. He denies the assault but at the time was fined £5,000 and handed a three-month jail term after Moore was left with two black eyes and bruising to her forehead.

Wow, that' s too bad that your friend' s sister' s hairdresser' s brother got in a car accident and lost his pinky toe. (both people feel sad and there is silence and conversation is halted) and so another person says , "But other than that Mrs . Lincoln, how did you like the play!"

Revenge takes many forms. By handing her hero – the convicted woman-basher and cricketing legend Geoffrey Boycott - a knighthood, Theresa May has managed to alienate even more people in the UK than she did over her bungled Brexit negotiations.

The woman who introduced a Domestic Violence bill into the house of Commons (currently in limbo because Parliament has been suspended) has used her resignation Honours list to settle scores on all sides, dishing out 57 gongs mostly to advisors who were merely doing their jobs (some would say extremely poorly) but none is more audacious and outrageous than the ennobling of Mr Boycott, a divisive figure even within the game which has ruled his entire life.

Labour calls for Sir Geoffrey Boycott to be stripped of his knighthood over domestic violence conviction

Suppose that a Conservative prime minister ' s wife were to have a passionate love affair lasting The fact that it never became public was a tribute to the docility and decorum of the press and to the He behaved immaculately throughout her long affair, giving his name to Sarah, her daughter born in 1930

And by friends, I don’t mean women he is hoping to one day wear down to date or sleep with.

May’s name now stands for bloody singlemindedness, an inability to listen to expert advice, a blind refusal to compromise and - the final icing on the cake - an astonishing lack of empathy.

Who does that remind you of? Step forward Geoffrey Boycott, the former England cricketing star - the captain who was never a team player, always proudly asserting his divine right to do things his way and listen to no-one else. (Exactly like Mrs May).

Geoffrey Boycott 'Doesn't Give A Toss' Over Women's Aid Criticism Of His Knighthood

Geoffrey Boycott 'Doesn't Give A Toss' Over Women's Aid Criticism Of His Knighthood Sir Geoffrey Boycott has said he does not “give a toss” about criticism of his knighthood. Domestic abuse charities have attacked ex-prime minister Theresa May over the decision to give the former England cricket star a knighthood, after he was convicted in France in 1998 of beating his then girlfriend Margaret Moore in a French Riviera hotel. The co-acting chief executive of Women’s Aid said his award was “very disappointing”. Sir Geoffrey, 78, told BBC Radio 4′s Today programme: “I don’t give a toss about her, love. “Twenty-five years ago. “You can take your political nature and do whatever you want with it. “I couldn’t give a toss.

Yes, Neanderthal man still lives on - especially in the North of England. Go into many rural pubs there and blokes still patronisingly call women ‘love’ and expect you to get dressed up to stand in a draughty bar and sip a ladylike drink while they pontificate at full volume about their car, traffic jams and the cricket and rugby scores.

In the age of #MeToo, men like Boycott should be looking and listening, learning the new way of behaving in modern society, not telling female interviewers on the Today programme they ‘couldn’t give a toss’ when asked about their past. Geoffrey Boycott wasn’t just ACCUSED of bashing his former lover 25 years ago, two French courts found him GUILTY, imposed a three month suspended prison sentence and a £5,000 fine.

The fact that in his head a different set of events took place doesn’t really matter. Many men accused of violent crimes don’t believe they really were responsible, that someone else pulled the trigger or drew the knife. This kind if delusion is all too common. Boycott insists his former girlfriend was trying to blackmail him - defaming her as he protests his innocence.

People are furious that Geoffrey Boycott has been awarded a knighthood

People are furious that Geoffrey Boycott has been awarded a knighthood Geoffrey Boycott said he “couldn't give a toss, love” about the backlash over Theresa May awarding him a knighthood despite a conviction for domestic violence. The ex-England cricketer’s comments have provoked a furious response amid calls for him to be removed from May’s resignation honours list. Boycott was fined £5,000 and given a three-month suspended sentence in 1998 after being convicted of beating his then-girlfriend Margaret Moore in a French Riviera hotel.

He has paid his dues, but the punishment was risible, and hardly sent a warning to other men who beat their partners. In France, domestic abuse has never been taken seriously by police or the courts. The government only recently decided to instigate a change of attitude after over 100 victims of ‘femicide’ (murder by a partner or family member) were logged so far this year, including a 92 year old woman who was caned to death by her 94 year old husband earlier this month.

Domestic Violence Killings Hit Five-Year High

Domestic Violence Killings Hit Five-Year High The number of domestic violence killings has hit a five-year high, new figures show. Data obtained by the BBC from 43 police forces across the UK reveal that 173 people died in domestic violence-related homicides last year. The statistics, reported on Friday, show there were 165 domestic killings in 2014, 160 in 2015, 139 in 2016 and 141 in 2017. Other figures show around three-quarters of victims of domestic killings are women, while suspects

He later explains that he wanted his children to see what real courage is. Sometimes courage is mental as well as physical. She was having Jem read to her so that she could have a distraction. Jem did not know any of this until later, but Atticus knew that he could explain it and Jem would understand.

It has taken France a long time to recognise the domestic abuse scandal it has ignored for decades. But Geoffrey Boycott continues to believe that the courts who convicted him were wrong. He says he did not hit his former lover 20 times in the face, and that they simply had a drunken disagreement and both fell onto a marble floor.

Whatever really happened that night at the Hotel Du Cap in Antibes in October 1996, Mr Boycott clearly feels the wronged party. The BBC has decided his reputation as a cricketer means his past can be airbrushed into respectability and he’s been welcomed into their team of highly paid sports commentators.

They may argue he has paid his fine, so let’s move on - but how do they justify his racist comments? Boycott was furious he was only awarded an MBE after playing 100 test matches and scoring 8,000 runs, and said ‘I’m going to get my award and tie it around my cat’. After West Indian players received honours in 2017, he said gongs were being dished out ‘like confetti’ and added ‘I’d better black my face’. Hardly petty jealousy, more like pig-headed racism.

Theresa May has said she admires Geoffrey Boycottt because ‘he stuck to it and he got runs in the end’. The woman who came to be known as the Maybot certainly stuck to the same song sheet, endlessly repeating her mantra about ‘strong and stable’, ending with ‘people want us to get on with it’.

That’s the problem in a nutshell. Sadly for Theresa, Brexit was never like a cricket match. She didn’t have to stand at the stumps accepting the punishment week in and week out. She was asked to bat for Britain but she stuck with the wrong role model and ended up disgruntled, miserable, a loser. Both she and Geoffrey Boycott has represent everything about Britain that we should be trying to forget.

Going it alone. A brutal lack of tact. Zero social skills to build partnerships.

Mrs May, your legacy is now truly toxic.

Ex-England cricketer Geoff Boycott has been awarded a knighthood by Theresa May in a farewell honours list that also rewards many of her former aides. Domestic abuse charities have criticised the move, pointing out his conviction for assaulting his then-partner in 1998. Adina Claire, co-acting chief executive of Women's Aid, said: "Celebrating a man who was convicted for assaulting his partner sends a dangerous message - that domestic abuse is not taken seriously as a crime.
