Failed in every ministerial post he had held.

He very nearly brought the criminal justice system to its knees, before he was sacked and Michael Gove stepped in to undo most of the damage.

If Gove was the answer I really don't want to know what the question was.

Offside is the only decision which VAR can correctly rule on because it is black and white
Fouls, tackles etc. are all down to opinions both on the field and off it.
Though that is dependent on which offside laws are in use.

The current ones are really not holding up to scrutiny.
