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?

His comment in the Oxford Mail was quite clear. He was apologetic and stupid and realises that the police have better things to do than having to pick up idiots that should know better and behave better after long nights out because people get too stupidly drunk to care and he's an example of that. That's all - no hidden agenda, but quite a deal of silver tongue.
