When a certain person, whose Christian name is that of a famous Yorkshire and England fast bowler and whose surname that of a highly dangerous sand bank in the English Channel that has destroyed a vast amount of valuable cargo said he did not want his name to be associated with something there was confusion.

Because when he rang the judge from his gold plated bath in a far away place frequented by the very rich the connection was not too good. He said that he did not want to be called a "tanker" and typically the judge and the media got it badly wrong.

One can understand this. To be compared to something that is oversized, an environmental liability, slow, difficult to deal with and full of crude oil is most hurtful and people should indeed be protected.

So there.
