An Oxford Rower and The Law
'I think there is a part of me that realises that the police could have been doing better things than dealing with me' says Barney Williams, the Boat Race rower who was arrested in Oxford last Sunday night. I disagree. Surely the job of the police is to apprehend yobbish, drunken thugs who kick in bicycles and cause criminal damage. Or, as Mr Williams implies, should they only be targetting yobbish, drunken thugs who don't row for Oxford?
