Farewell, Bill Hill

Bill Hill will be sobbing into his betting slips today after hearing the news that John Terry has hung up his little stubby pen. No, we don't mean that pen. Terry has vowed never to place another bet after losing millions on the horses in the last few years.

According to The Sun, our own Terry naught boy was part of a 'betting clique' with other England millionaire footballers, including former goody two-shoes Michael Owen, and the slightly less good Wayne Rooney. Terry has apparently mortgaged his house to the hilt in order to pay for his gambling addiction; he has a £3.95m mortgage on his Oxshott pad, which is a cool million more than the £2.75m he paid a couple of years ago.

What would George Osbourne say about our England hero's less-than thrifty approach to spending?
