Nee Naw Nee Naw

One usually associates football crime with either violence and disorder or such activities as the forgery of tickets.

Of course there has been the Stephens enquiry into allegations of breaches of transfer rules previously discussed. But today there has been new drama. 3 clubs raided by Police - Newcastle, Glasgow Rangers and Portsmouth. No details as to why have been given other than suggestions that it relates to crimes of corruption.

Even more mysteriously it is the City of London police which suggests that the crime itself has been perpetrated in central London - in the square mile to be exact. The force says it is committed to:
  • Tackling economic crime
  • Countering terrorism
  • Maintaining public order
  • Promoting community safety
It looks as if this investigation centres on the first.

Which just goes to show that whilst the old adage "Where there's muck there's brass" might be true, "Where there's brass there's muck" has equal validity.
