Rip -Off -Britain

Dark Age British political, legal and horseracing disaster zones 



Pioneering Developing Bloodhorse Literate Global Horseracing Rules
"Fallon leads team taking on locals in Barbados.
(Racing Post Friday November 15th 2013 p9)
"KIEREN FALLON captains a star-studded team of British and Irish jockeys in the inaugural winter jockeys' championship around the tight turns of Garrison Savannah racecourse in Barbados today, writes Julian Armfield.
"Jimmy Fortune, Seb Sanders and Pat Smullen make up the side that will face a stern challenge from crack local riders Anderson Trottman, Antonio Bishop. Damario Bynoe and Antonio Whitehall in the five-race series.
"Fallon said:" It's going to be an exciting afternoon. My boys are very impressed with the track, although we're aware that the local jockeys are going to be tough nuts to crack because they know the place like the backs of their hands. "
"The raiders fared well in the draw for rides, however, with Fallon being paired up with four fancied runners from the stable of leading local trainer Victor Cheeseman.
"The initiative, which has secured a three-year sponsorship from the Barbados Thoroughbred Breeders' Association, Courtesy Garage / Hyundai, Mango Bay Barbados and the island's tourism authority, will be broadened in 2014 to embrace a jockeys' team from the US.
" Sir David Seale,  president of the Barbados Turf Club, said: "We are thrilled to have attracted such an eminent team of visiting riders. Our track may be small but it is so intimate  and the welcome given to winning jockeys is unrivalled elsewhere. "
"The visitors have already enjoyed a taste of the local culture by swimming with racehorses in the Caribbean Sea. " Yes, yes, yes.

Breaking down the barriers that allow false British Horseracing Rules to go global. 
Ousting the ignorance of a failed clueless British horseracing government

that is blighting and killing our Sport.

McCririck 'inconsolable' after tribunal verdict
By Graham Green 1:14PM 14 NOV 2013

"JOHN McCRIRICK on Thursday insisted he had no regrets over bringing his age discrimination claim against Channel 4 despite being left "inconsolable and desolate" by the Central London Employment Tribunal ruling against him.
Britain's highest-profile racing pundit accepts the decision signed the death knell on his long terrestrial TV career although he will continue to feature on At The Races where he is next booked to appear on Sunday morning's Forum programme

JMC Turfcall Comment

This is a basic legal decency employment  issue and should apply nationwide right across the board. This Tribunal has taken this issue totally out of context.

If a person works  for Channel 4, (or indeed for any other business ) and has done so loyally and consistently over the last 29 years no way can such a person be sacked.

No one has the right to tell anyone else when to stop working, this is up to each person themselves to decide

Mac if asked could adapt to a new audience better than most. He might be hugely relieved to not have to put on a pantomime act any longer to suit only Channel 4.

The behaviour of this Central London Employment Tribunal cruel, abusive and disgusting 
not acceptable and can never be acceptable behaviour.

 Britain must lead world in Equine welfare - Howard
Racing Post Friday November 15th 2013 p9
"BRITISH RACING has a responsibility to lead the world in terms of equine welfare and drug testing, according to Lord Howard, chairman of the Arena Racing Company and former leader of the Conservative Party, writes Peter Scargill. 
JMC: Yes , but not in the wrong direction, by the wrong people as over the last 6 decades and at present.

"Howard believes the recent doping scandals to hit racing have been bad for British racing but good for the sport as a whole as individual racing jurisdictions have started to come together on the use of anabolic steroids in and out of training.
JMC : Howards sentiments do not ring true here due to the fact he has served a political career himself not a horseracing career. False leads do more harm than good.

"The comments were made by Lord Howard at the World annual conference in London yesterday.

"He said: "The fact that modern racing started in Britain does, I think, place a special responsibility on our authorities to take a lead in insuring the sport is conducted with full regard for the welfare of the horses that take part.
JMC: Yes, absolutely. But why have the British political and horseracing governments failed to allow top Equus standard Rules in British horseracing? And why are there no True Global Equus Rules in place anywhere in the world this day in 2013?  Channel 4 The Morning Line Preview on Saturday, Nick Luck and Mick Fitzgerald took us to Jackdaws Castle the beautiful home of Jonjo O'Neill.  Jonjo one of the greatest horseman this world and all the people in it have ever seen.  They introduced us to Johns Spirit who that same afternoon won the feature race at Cheltenham partnered by Richie McLernon the  2,30 Paddy Power Gold Cup Chase in which 20 runners took part. To Mountain Tunes and to AP (Tony) McCoy Mountain Tunes who won AP's his 4,000 winner. To date.

"The recent incident of substance abuse in Britain, while not in itself give an encouraging sign, was nevertheless followed by a tightening up of regulations in a number of other countries, although not yet in all of them.
JMC: A tightening up by whom exactly? The bloodhorse illiterate?

"The decision last month of the International Equestrian Federation and International Federation of Horseracing Authorities to come together to create the International Horse Sports Confederation could, and hopefully will, accelerate the rate of progress.
 JMC: First of all there is a massive backlog of BHA abusive malpractice  that is in urgent need of correction and true understanding. Like three year old allegations against Dwyer and Mulrennan summoned back to India

 By Lewis Porteous 9:52AM 18 NOV 2013 

JOCKEYS Martin Dwyer and Paul Mulrennan will be asked to return to India as Royal Western India Turf Club stewards seek an explanation from the two jockeys regarding an alleged conversation between the pair from more than three years ago. 

This needs striking out with immediate effect. Due to the fact that there are no True Global Equus Rules of Horseracing in place at present. As neither have there been any over the last 6 decades. No true Sport can take place on a global scale without The True  Rules applicable to such a Sport.

"The fact that protecting horse welfare and maintaining strong policy are included in the key priorities to which both bodies have signed up provide the basis for at least a degree of optimism. "
JMC: Political and Horseracing governments have caused such sickening devastation to so may other peoples lives to include the horses optimism is hardly the right word here.
