Now let me get this straight, it seems that John Terry is in trouble because of what he is alleged to have said.
Apparently, there would have been no problem if he had just used the "C" word. What caused the outrage is that he is alleged to have used the "B" word before the "C" word. So, for John Terry it was the "B" word which was the problem. He could have called the "B" chap a "C" and nobody would have batted an eyelid, it was the "B", if he said it, which caused the rumpus.
Are you with me so far?
However, when it comes to Alan Hansen, he's in trouble because he used the "C" word instead of the "B" word. As a result, outraged black players were twittering angry tweets pompously announcing that they are "B" not "C".
So, if Hansen had used the "B" word instead of the "C" word he would not have got into trouble, yet it was the alleged use of the "B", not the "C" word which got John Terry in trouble. Confusing huh?
In each instance the "B" word is the same word "Black", yet while Terry is condemned for using it, Hansen is pilloried for not doing so.
It would seem that when the thought police want to get you, whatever you do will be wrong. Either that is true or we may reached a point of insanity from which there is no return.
