Paul Gascoigne and his trial for "racist abuse"

Post  Freedom on Tue 20 Sep 2016, 12:55 pm

Has anyone any thoughts on this? If this is all that Paul said, it does seem like taking a sledgehammer to crack a nut - especially considering that Paul is an alcoholic with serious mental health issues.

I agree, he wasn't being aggressive. I'm half Irish and love Irish jokes.

This did make me laugh on Twitter yesterday:

Paul Gascoigne is found guilty of making a racist joke.

Jim Davidson turned up at court with a fishing rod, KFC and four cans of lager.


Just to add, I don't agree with racial abuse in any way shape or form, I do like a joke though.

I agree with chrissie.... It was only a bit of banter.

The funniest thing about it was this Security Guard told the Sun, I think it was, that he was so upset that when he went home he burst into tears.... Or something equally ridiculous.

Always a bit of controversy around Gazza.

I'm actually surprised he's still walking this earth. I've met up him twice many moons ago and he's a very likeable bloke. Albeit very troubled.

I follow him on Twitter and this is what he tweeted:

Paul Gascoigne ‏@gazza8gascoigne  20h20 hours ago

I once got him square between the eyes with a Mars bar during a Tottenham match. True story.

I also read this a while back, which if true is sickening:
