Sue “Serious Problem” Carrol
In today’s Mirror, columnist Sue Carroll writes:
GEORGE Michael says he doesn’t have a drug problem. Fine.
He does, however, have a serious problem with falling asleep at the wheel of his car.
Twice he’s been caught napping at major junctions in central London and this week was reported to be “comatose” and slumped in the driving seat.
Arrogantly he shrugged off the incident making it sound like an innocuous pastime.
What he fails to address, or possibly recognise, is that London roads are not reserved for the exclusive use of rock stars in the wee small hours.
Well, I’m afraid what Ms Carroll fails to recognise is that the state of George Michael’s health is a matter for George Michael. It is simply not anyone’s business but George’s. Why these people think they are owed some explanation about this, I have no idea.
In November, the police and doctors will make a judgement as to whether they believe George Michael is fit to drive or not. Previously, when the police have investigated allegations made by the press in regard of George’s driving, they have found there were simply no cases to answer; in no small part because the press simply fabricate so much of what they write.
If the newspaper reports of the latest incident are true, then the police will have all the evidence they need to prosecute George Michael. However, if in November, the police find, yet again, that there is no case to answer, I should really like to see the newspapers prosecuted for wasting police time.
