‘He Was Being Sarcastic’ – Lawyers Defend John Terry As Anton Ferdinand Racism Trial Begins
By Alan Duffy
Resplendent in a pink tie and grey suit, John Terry arrived at Westminster Magistrates’ Court this morning to (finally) stand trial over alleged racist remarks made to Anton Ferdinand last October.
Anyway, so far this morning, the court has heard that JT doesn’t deny calling Ferdinand a “black c***”, but that, according to the Chelsea man’s defence team, it was said “sarcastically”. So there. I’ll leave you lot to debate that and everthing else that follows as the case contines.
Oh, if Terry is found guilty, he could be fined a whopping £2,500. Surely that will bankrupt the poor fella.
