Just found this.... I was acting in self-defence, says drunken fan on disabled benefits who threw punch at a police horse | Mail Online Now, he is/was on disability benefit, but managed to run up to and punch the horse. He 'only had 5 pints' - right - a Geordie at a footy match and a derby to boot and only 5 pints? Oh wait... he is on Unemplyment Benefit too. The scarf was only round his face 'cos of a sore tooth......... Yes, I am having a rant. As for him, I know where sympathy is in my dictionary!
