So when we're sitting around the fire in the early hours in the middle of the bush and getting our peckers out and taking a leak wherever we happen to be standing............yes I'm sure technically we are breaking some laws, but you'll have a hard job to convince me we're doing anything wrong or socially unacceptable.
    You and your chums are not a prominent sporting icons representing an entire country, and the bush is not a cricket ground steeped in culture and tradition.

    Yeah, I think that tradition took a bit of a hit when Slurrey allowed Kia to come before Oval in the name.

    And neither are international cricketers when they are celebrating a win behind closed doors. They might be prominent sporting icons but they are also human beings......when they are in public view then of course a certain standard of professionalism is expected, amongst themselves, at a private party and celebrating a win..........they should have no more expectations on them than anyone else.

    But they were in public view, and not behind closed doors, hence why we all know about this little incident in the first place. This wasn't a case of paparazzi hiding in bushes and peeking through windows, they were able to observe all of this happening in plain site. This was in no way a "behind closed doors incident". The journalists that broke the story did nothing more than they were entitled to, there have been no suggestions of foul play or dishonesty, which as far as I can tell is what you seem to be alluding to.

    In any case, at the time of the incident they were all kitted out wearing their whites with the England badge on the chest. If they aren't representing the country whilst they've got the three lions emblazoned upon them, I don't know when they are.

    But even if we can accept that this was a private party - which it obviously wasn't, even with the most liberal interpretation of what is meant by private - and that they should have no more expectations placed on them than anyone else, their conduct still falls below what would be considered acceptable of people in the majority of situations, regardless of who they are.

    Well, it is just a patch of dirt, so as long as you're just doing it for a laugh I don't see how there'd be anything wrong with that. Also, don't let the fact that you're in plain sight put you off, you have my word that it's totally private, despite everyone being able to see you.

    Does this also come down to class? I could never imagine someone from a better background doing something like this.

    Based on my experience of Old Etonians, Carthusians, Harrovians and Wykehamists et al my view is the polar opposite of that
