John Terry uses Jeremy Hunt defence to justify sending off


John Terry has used a similar defence to Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt to justify his sending off in last night’s game against Barcelona, by insisting that he did nothing wrong despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

“It doesn’t look good,” admitted the Chelsea captain.

“It might look like I’m violently driving my knee into Alexis Sanchez, but hopefully the people out there who know me, know that I’m not the sort of player who would admit that I knew what I was doing.”

Jeremy Hunt, who is under intense pressure to resign following revelations in the Leveson Inquiry that he privately supported attempts by News Corporation to take full control of BSkyB, has also denied any wrongdoing.

“It doesn’t look good.” admitted the MP for South West Surrey.

“It might look like I was providing advice, guidance and privileged access to News Corporation, but hopefully the people out there who know me, know that I’m not the sort of MP who would admit I knew what I was doing.”

The Jeremy Hunt defence

Prime Minister David Cameron said he has “full confidence” in his culture secretary, despite separate allegations that Mr Cameron held discussions with James Murdoch over News Corporation’s takeover of BSkyB.

“It doesn’t look good,” he admitted.

“It might look like I had dinner with Rebekah Brooks and James Murdoch just two days after Vince Cable was absolved of his involvement in overseeing the takeover bid, but hopefully the people out there who know me, know that I’m not the sort of prime minister who would admit I knew what I was doing.”

With Rupert Murdoch expected to reveal details of his meetings with senior politicians later, Mr Cameron and Mr Hunt have warned against any “knee-jerk” reactions.

“Let’s just see how much more shit he puts us in first,” they urged.
