Manchester City And Ched Evans Teach 6-Year-Old Fan A Lesson In Human Rights And Crime

by | 23rd, November 2014

When Jimmy Savile was exposed as an alleged child abuser, the BBC purged him from the schedules. Reruns of Top of The Pops, the show she presented were shelved if they contained traces of Savile.  Even looking like Savile was banned. But the BBc is big place and some Savile shards seep though the safety net. And so it is with Ched Evans. Unlike Savile, Ched Evans is alive. And unlike Savile, Evans has stood trial. The then Sheffield United football was found guilty of rape.

No longer welcome at Sheffield United, Evans is is considering his career options. His CV boasts a spell at Manchester City. He’s still there. He never left.  The Sun esplains:

PARENTS blasted Manchester City yesterday for giving children as young as six certificates featuring a photo of rapist footballer Ched Evans.

That’s bad because?

One parent said: “It’s a disgrace. I had to explain to my six-year-old lad why someone on his award was a criminal.”

Why did you have to tell him that? And how was it explained?

And for tomorrow’s lesson in life, the outraged dad and tell the lad how Manchester City came to be owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan, whose family rule AbuDhabi, a place labelled by some as an alleged “‘black hole’ for basic human rights”.
