I got a digital radio for my birthday. It’s brilliant. One minute you’ve got some pure concerto ballad, then you can flip to some jazz, old school Craig David and some 60s rock. There’s even a Christmas music station
Gareth Thomas, the former Wales rugby player, was attacked by a 16 year-old kid whilst on a night out because the boy allegedly disliked his sexuality. Gotta have huge admiration for Thomas in holding back and not demolishing the kid; he probably deserved it but Thomas asked the police to deal with the incident through "restorative justice". I didn't know what this was but, upon looking into it, "Restorative justice enables victims to meet or communicate with their offender to explain the real impact of the crime.".
Thomas' ability to hold off and try and change the boy's thinking away from ignorant thuggery is inspiring. Well played, Gareth!
That's quite scarily close to home. Good on Thomas for trying to make it into something positive, and I'm glad he found so many people to help him, but it's still pretty frightening that that would happen to a guy like him so locally.
