Just stumbled across another reference to Joey Barton on Wikipedia. I had no idea of this previously: " Anthony Delano Walker (21 February 1987 – 30 July 2005) was a Black British student of Jamaican descent who was murdered with an ice axe by Michael Barton (brother of footballer Joey Barton) and Barton's cousin Paul Taylor, in an unprovoked, racially motivated attack on the night of 29 July 2005 in Huyton, Merseyside."
This would have been an interesting contribution to Tim's Queen Twit Party.
Stick that in and watch the shredding of cardigans and nashing of NHS specs.
Stirring then, and stirring now?
There was a Jimmy McGovern drama made about Anthony.
The 90-minute drama from writer Jimmy McGovern imagines the life Anthony Walker could have lived had he not been killed.www.radiotimes.com
& Joey mentions it in his autobiography.
