Having seen the outburst by John McCririck at the funeral of Robin Cook he has gone even further down my list of favourites. (Note: He was already down there amongst Gonorrhea, Piles and annoying TV Personalities, but now he has hit new lows).
I think he was on one of those TV Reality shows a while back, but the instant I heard his voice I switched channels and avoided that channel for weeks incase I heard him again. Not only is he damned annoying anyway, but his voice drives me mental as well.
I am sure he perfected his betting signals by the various hand movements he probably does in private (being the total wanger that he his).
The comments were made at a totally inappropriate moment. It might not have been so bad if he waited until a few days later, or made a comment in the press. But why do it when the whole family are there? Why do it when it was meant to be a celebration of Robin Cooks life. I was not a big fan of Robin Cook either, but I still saw those comments as a mark of bad respect from someone who claimed to be a friend of his.
John McCririck should count himself lucky. I doubt anyone will be attending his funeral. Those that do will probably all be masters at the same hand signals he uses and not one of them will be a booky. They’ll all be doing the same hand signal at him as they lower his coffin.
McCririck… go somewhere quiet and don’t show your face for the rest of your life. You are an annoying soab and have really shot yourself in the foot this time. Either that or have the guts to stand up in public and apologize not for what you said, because you can have an opinion, I don’t have a problem with what you said, just where and when you said it.
