For anyone confused by that heading let me explain: it’s not that Jesus; this one is a footballer.

Switched on BBC Breakfast, switched it off again. I will not have Steph McGovern forced on me at this time of the morning, or any other time, truth be told.

Last night I finally got round to watching Trainspotting, after all these years. Nice cameo, Irvine.

What was the cost to the public purse of the show trial of an 86 year-old man who is already in prison?

Who decided to prosecute?

Will that person be sacked?

There’s a psychologist woman on Sky News trying to tell older people how to be happy. She’s telling me I should sing and dance. Guess what I’m telling her?

Trump doesn’t worry me. I know people who voted for him, I understand why they did and I respect that. (That means you guys, Kendra)

But they didn’t vote for nutters like Mr Bannon.

In Fergie’s era Man U had Hughes, McClair, Giggs, Cole, Yorke, Van Nistelrooy, Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldinho, Scholes, Beckham, prolific or regular scorers all, and great club men.

Today we have a 35 year-old football tourist and nobody else who even knows what shape the goals are.

Watching US golf on Sky, play-off between US and Japanese golfers. Half the crowd seem to be bevvied. 

I’d like to blame it on Trump, but these guys were arseholes before he arrived.

Thank you, but …

Yesterday I shared an opinion piece from the Guardian attacking President Trump for signing an order denying US funds to any organisations that support abortion. Note that word: opinion. This morning in my mailbox I found a tirade from someone called Ed . . . that’s all, just Ed . . . instructing me to stop reading the Guardian and start thinking for myself. Mystery man, having thought about it, I can’t decide whether that was more insulting than stupid, or vice versa. Close run thing.

Ed suggests that the time to think about wanting a baby is before you think about having a relationship. While it might inspire a debate about carts before horses, he’s entitled to that view, as is the Guardian columnist to hers. But he also believes that contraception is the only way to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Well, Ed, it’s not; that would be abstinence. It would also be rather difficult for practising Catholics. Where he really consigned himself  to the trash can, though, was in offering in support of his belief . . . a belief to which he is entitled and which I respect . . . a story line from Coronation Street.

They make it up, Ed. Best avoid Holby City, for the good of your health.
