  1. Good work Mr Honorable Man and why did it have to come down to this for the other Honorable man? He is already a thief (AKA politician) and a successful business man (lets just pretend he is not a bookie) so what more does one want. Could you honestly serve the head of an international professional sport while doing two other jobs? Just take a break man and leave cricket to the experts and stick to the thieving and bookies with the rest of the scum.
