Ben Stokes Choked His Wife

Ben Stokes Choke Holds Wife ClareGuido has long argued that the Lobby are self-serving and protect their sources from negative stories getting out, a point Guido demonstrated a decade ago with the exposure of Damian McBride. The Lobby it has to be said have nothing on Sports hacks, who are all about access, promoting their personal ‘brand’, some of them with popular Twitter followings miles beyond their own title’s circulation.

The events of Wednesday night were witnessed by many at the Roundhouse. The existence of these photos is widely known by sports journalists. Fleet Street is too scared to publish them for fear of undermining the carefully constructed image of England’s cricketing sporting hero…

Ben Stokes is currently the bookies favourite to be BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and there were calls for him to be knighted after the Ashes. Sports journalists are protecting their client… Charles Saatchi accepted a police caution for throat grabbing Nigella…
