I have only just got round to reading the chairman’s Christmas present to me. It is a book, Money for Nothing: The Invention of Modern Capitalism. It is quite fascinating and starts with a review of the truly brilliant men of the age, starting with Sir Isaac Newton who was to go on and blow his entire wealth in the scam.

I think that right-thinking people have missed the point over Ollie Robinson. Obviously, he should be spending six months in the Tower along with the other members of the team who have not yet proved that they never said anything silly when they were teenagers.

Finally, the ECB should be charged with bringing the game into disrepute through having failed to see all this months ago.
