Just When I thought It Had Been A Boring Week…………
Posted on January 16, 2009
I was about to do a blog on just how boring a week it had been then three extraodianary things happpened in the world of politics, current affairs, and sport. We will start with the bid Manchester City have made for Brazilian superstar Kaka (pictured below). It is reported that the offer being considered by Italian giants AC Milan is a paltry £108m, with a weekly pay packet for Kaka a cool £500k, with his agent (who is his Dad) recieving £18m for brokering the deal.
“What should I do Dad, I know you could get £18m but I need to make the right decision?”
“Just shut up, and sign on the dotted line son!”
The Sultans of Bling who own City can afford it, they have an alleged £565billion war chest to play with, as well as earning an additional £3-500 million a day depending on oil price fluctuation. It may not be fair, but at least it wipes the smile off the face of Roman Abramovich who is now a comparative pauper in world football.

Thirdly was the removing of the Mace in parliament by John McDonnell yesterday in protest at the new runway at Heathrow Airport. You can view it here.
