In a media conference, Nigel Pearson, manager of Leicester City FC, accused a journalist of being an ostrich. The victim was Ian Baker who suffered abuse and criticism from the Foxes boss after a defeat to Chelsea.
It’s strange because in The Earth Emperor’s Eye, Ben Whittenbury suggests humanity has its head in the sand – ostrich like – over the treatment of Mother Nature. Readers will also be amused by the Foxes and Baker links. Is this fate?
