Stars give rules the boot.

Byline: Joan Burnie

HOPE Aiden McGeady thinks he's an awfully clever boy getting his speeding offence overturned.

But what I find it very offensive indeed is that overpaid sportsmen such as him think they don't have to obey the laws like the rest of us.

It stinks, Aiden, especially if your wee "victory" encourages other ignorant road piggies to crawl out of their motorised styes to try to find a legal escape clause. As for the smug lawyers who help them avoid justice, it is to be hoped no one they care about ever gets mown down by some clown driving too fast in a car. Speeding kills.
