CAMPAIGN DIARY: Bainsfair gets shown the red card for giving the referee a mouthful

The charming Paul Bainsfair of BST-BDDP has been having a tough time of it recently, what with losing the Mercedes pitch, mourning Labour’s senseless tobacco ad ban and all those vicious gossips plaguing him and John ’loadsamoney’ Sharkey with incessant talk of BST merging with GGT.

time of it recently, what with losing the Mercedes pitch, mourning

Labour’s senseless tobacco ad ban and all those vicious gossips plaguing

him and John ’loadsamoney’ Sharkey with incessant talk of BST merging

with GGT.



It gets worse, however. Bainsfair, a fanatical QPR supporter (he even

has his tonsure cut in the same style as the former Hoops manager, Ray

Wilkins), lost his chairmanly dignity after being sent off in a

six-a-side footie tournament organised by BST’s lawyers last

weekend.



He received the red card in a game against the competition’s hosts

Professional foul? Selfless personal sacrifice for the good of the

agency team? Not exactly. Bainsfair had an outburst of anger and

profanity at a refereeing decision over a free kick.



Leaving the field with the words ’you should be ashamed of yourself’

ringing in his ears, he was heard to comfort himself with something

about Ray Wilkins being the first England player to be sent off in a

World Cup game.
