I think he doth protest too much

Phew, it’s been hard trying to keep up with the tabloid/internet revelations (for which in large measure read ‘gossip’) this week. If it’s not more allegations concerning match-fixing in the world of cricket, it’s the private lives of footballers and even our politicians which have come under the spot-light.

The reaction of two of the individuals involved in some of these allegations has been fascinating. One has been silent, perhaps hoping that they will blow over while he is out of the country and once they become tomorrow’s chip-paper. The other has taken the rather drastic step of calling a press conference to refute what he described as allegations circulating the internet. Now, I may be a fairly modest user of the internet, but I hadn’t seen hide nor hair of any allegations concerning that individual until he referred to them himself. I’m no expert on public relations of course, but even I thought that was a bit of a high risk strategy. It will be interesting to see where the story goes, but whatever the realities of what he did or didn’t do, airing your dirty laundry in public like that is a curious way of trying the lay the rumours to bed (no pun intended...).
