vince tracy's insight:

When being able to gamble 30, 000 or 40, 000 per week when will the public ever see that these footballers are grossly overpaid and do not need their exhorbitant wages? Yes. They should be paid well but take 40.000 off the going rate and the figure would still be far too much.

Janette Kilner, 33, met the boy while teaching him at St Thomas the Apostle College in Nunhead and later took him back to her home for sex, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard
vince tracy's insight:

Does anyone remember a male teacher who fell in love and ran away with his 15 year old studen?. I don't think he was indulging in such acts as defined in this case. I seem to remember his sentence was 5 years. I cannot see how this shining example of today's teaching profession deserves a lighter sentence. It also seems obvious the police checks seem to be pretty useless during the selection process.
