Re: Richard Hutton..?

I attended the EGM. The postal result was announced first. 300+ in favour and something like 57 against which rated scuppered the outcome in the room. Nevertheless two of us voted against with some 40 or so in favour. The chairman said the vote against n the room reflected the postal vote. Hutton spoke briefly and to be fair spoke with humour though there is an underling arrogance about him that I find irksome.

If the Chairman's degree of numeracy equates a ratio of 2:40 to one of 57:300 (even 300+) I hope he is not in charge of the Club finances.

I didn't get there to vote, but was one bean among the 57.

I hope this was only press speculation (3rd item down - Yorksire's uncivil war) -http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/cricket/article-5218963/Australian-governor-want-demolish-Lords-Charles-Sale.html

If these allegations are true, Hutton asking if Boycott could be banned, he should never have been offered the post of President.
If a few of the other Yorkshire batsmen had been selfish and scored a few runs, Boycott would not have needed to be so "selfish". I was 10, going on 11, at the time and just becoming more aware of the Yorkshire team at the time, for the majority of the time, if Boycott didn't make a significant contribution Yorkshire struggled to make a decent score.

First of all if it's in the Daily Mail then it could be cobblers. If it is true then it would surely have been meant as a joke. Hutton would realise that banning a former president for life can't be done. Who that president might be is irrelevant.

Richard Hutton ?

Until a few year ago, members' votes were sent to an independent scrutineer. Now they go directly to the county office. Until the status quo is restored, there will always be lingering doubts about the validity of the figures.

Donald Trump as Yorkshire president, as mooted above, could have some advantages. It would solve our spin problem at a stroke; we would probably never lose another game, at least on the Twitter feed. And maybe there'll be a wall between us and the rugby league side.
