Day: May 15, 2011

Head of the IMF’s arrest a ploy by Sarkozy to stop his Presidential momentum?

That was my initial reaction when I read the story over on BBC News at lunchtime. As I have read more and more reports several this disturb me about this mans arrest.

Firstly a lot of the maid’s story is already out there in the press. This is from the Daily Mail report:

‘She told detectives he came out of the bathroom naked, ran down a hallway to the foyer where she was, pulled her into a bedroom and began to sexually assault her, according to her account,’ a New York police spokesman said.

‘She pulled away from him and he dragged her down a hallway into the bathroom where he engaged in a criminal sexual act, according to her account to detectives. He tried to lock her into the hotel room.’

The woman alleged he forced her to perform oral sex on him and tried to remove her underwear.

That seems like quite a story. It certainly seems like a lot to have come out already.

Secondly the fact that his popularity in France was growing and he was rumoured to be an extremely strong candidate for the 2012 French President elections. Would he honestly risk that for a quick blowjob with a hotel maid?

Thirdly the timing of it all. I am always suspicious of outrageous allegations when the timing of them is so beneficial to someone else. Sarkozy is under real pressure at home and this man could have derailed his chances of another term in office.

Look he may very well be guilty and deserves all this but something just doesn’t feel quite right about it all and whatever happens mud will stick. His Presidential hopes are all but dashed because even if the maid came out and said she made it all up and was hoping for a pay-off then some people would not believe her.

There is something about this all that just doesn’t add up…

Things I think I think – 15/05/11

I have decided to add an occasional/more than occasional column for all those little tidbits that do not warrant their own blog post. I have called it ‘Things I think I think’. I hope you enjoy…

*Tripping over a paving slab in front of three women and watching them trying to stifle a laugh is slightly embarrassing.

*I really liked the Hungarian Eurovision Song

*The future of one of my my two favourite baseball Yankees looks bleak and it saddens me.

*When Edwin Van Der Sar quits this summer then Tomasz Kuszczak is not good enough to be his replacement.

*I love the fact that Paula Abdul is back with Simon Cowell on The X Factor.

*I do not love the fact that Simon Jones got the presenting gig on the same show. Dermot was clearly the guy. A mistake by Cowell.

*Also if it is true that Tulisa from N-Dubz is joining the UK Panel then it shows how little he cares about the UK version of the show and ITV in general. ITV need to work out what they are going to do.

*I miss the theme music from The Big Fight Live

*I’m very unhappy over the departure of most of the attractive girls in the chip shop in The Broadway. Only one seems to be left and they have been replaced by guys. They aren’t going to entice me is for a casual saveloy.

*Is Shoeburyness the arse end of nowhere? I went to Asda for three things on Thursday and they had none of them. I checked again today and still none of them. That’s pretty shocking.

*My fantasy baseball teams practically all stink.

*Kendrys Morales. Are you for real?

*I worry for Chris Huhne but if he’s done what they are saying (although they have failed to nail him) then his future is less #10 more Prisoner #398638.

*I bought an iPhone. A small piece of me hates myself.

*I went to a play on Friday evening. It wasn’t awful. From me that is a compliment.

*Michael McIntyre judging on Britain’s Got Talent is an oxymoron.

*Can Ray Wilkins love Chelsea any more than he clearly does?

*I feel so much for David Laws. Not so much Chris Huhne.

*I keep putting off washing my towels. I keep waiting for that sunny day so they’ll all dry quickly but it never comes.

*I’m hungry.

And to end remember that smiling at someone can make their day.
