The issue of racism, The FA hearing & John Terry

In case it matters to people, I should state up front that I am a Liverpool fan.

The aim of this blog is not to go into the press storm about whether the FA was right to remove Terry's captaincy prior to the criminal trial but to highlight a number of important points set out in the Magistrates Court decision ahead of the FA Independent Regulatory Commission (IRC) Hearing.
