But she did leave us with a pioneering Domestic Abuse Bill.

Which adds more fuel to the irony fire.

Yorkshire cricket legend Geoffrey Boycott was awarded a knighthood in Theresa May’s resignation honours today.

 

I would have expected at least one thread either congratulating him on a long overdue honour or one saying that it’s a disgrace that a racist, misogynist woman beater is being given an honour at all.

What did he get it for?

I believe he and Andrew Strauss were given them for services to cricket.

Both have serviced cricket very well, we still haven’t replaced Strauss at the top of the order. I don’t mind boycott on TMS but, given his conviction for assault I’m not sure he’s Knight-worthy, then again is any cricketer. He’s done great work foryorkshire cricket, and helped raised money for Yorkshire air ambulance. Is boycott the first knight to have knocked his Mrs about? I doubt it. But in 2019 it shouldnt be overlooked.

As always in these things, there are more deserving causes than there are gongs to hand out, so there are many people who could have been chosen who aren’t known for domestic violence.

 

A tactical error on May’s part (one of many) as the legacy of her worthy domestic abuse work will forever be tainted by association with Boycott’s knighthood.

There are plenty who will say he deserves it. I’m not saying sack him, but equally I’m not saying he deserves something as big as a knighthood.

Margaret Moore was a gold digger,she latched onto Boycott,he was sucked in,shes admitted to relatives she slipped on a marble floor,the bloke was asked for 150K to keep it out of court,if her own family didnt support her,says enough,case wasnt proven.

Lets talk prince Andrew or the various MPS,theres way too much scandle there.

The poster is just putting the other side to a story that happened nearly 25 years ago.  None of us know the real truth.  Theresa May obviously likes Geoffrey Boycott and likes cricket because she chose two cricketers to award Knighthoods to.  The now Sir Geoffrey Boycott's day should not have been spoilt by all this faux controversy which happened all those years ago.

 

The bigger issue is should retiring Prime Ministers be allowed to give out honours when they leave office?

Not to mention highly ironic as it was Theresa May who name checked him as her inspiration for standing doggedly at the crease in her Brexit innings.

 

Remind us how that went Theresa? 😵😱😳😂

If Theresa May's hero had a faster run scoring rate she might have managed to implement the democratic 2016 EU referendum result during her time at the crease.
