He's been mentioned several times on the White Rose Forum, on the basis that he wasn't there when it was all happening so he shouldn't have been sacked.  What they fail to say - even though the little local difficulty at Essex has been mentioned - is that he was somewhere else when apparently the same thing was going on.

Precisely Lynda. Their inability to put 2+2 together astonishes me. The White Rose Forum is full of one eyed ignorant opinion.

Yorkshire people one eyed and ignorant, and seemingly innumerate? Never!

I see Yorkshire are making a cynical attempt to look better by engaging in a partnership with a Lahore franchise. They have also signed a player called Rolf Harris (well nearly). ;)

A friend alerted me to this article: https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/sport/cricket/exclusive-robin-smith-on-attack-in-yorkshire-ccc-row-3528701

"FORMER Yorkshire chairman Robin Smith has launched a strong attack on new encumbent Lord Kamlesh Patel, calling on club members to rise up against proposals to make key changes to the club rules and questioning the process by which Patel was appointed."

Yorkshire doing what they do best - shooting themselves in the foot and stabbing each other in the back.

Well, what’s the point in having rules if they are going to be ignored?

That’s what Boris is being criticised for at the moment 😂

“They all want bl**dy shooting” to misquote a famous football manager.

Article in The cricketer:

https://www.thecricketer.com/Topics/cricket-racism-crisis/lord_patel_takes_aim_robin_smith_yorkshire_reforms_blocked.html

"Yorkshire chair Lord Patel has accused Robin Smith, of “actively working with the sole intention to destabilise and even destroy” the club.

Patel, who was appointed Yorkshire chair following revelations of racism at the club, had proposed a raft of constitutional changes designed to promote diversity and convince the ECB that Leeds was a fitting host for international cricket. The ECB had stripped them of that right after the emergence of a history of racism at Yorkshire.
But Smith, a past chair and president of the club, has effectively delayed such changes being ratified by pointing out some procedural errors which took place before Patel’s involvement with the club.

It is understood those errors relate to a failure to notify the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) of an agreement whereby the club could contact members by email instead of post. ........."

Entirely predictable, Yorkshire walk away scott free. A few people, some probably innocent, lost their jobs but the club found guilty of racism is not punished at all. Disgusting.

The club is its members. Are you suggesting the members should be punished for the (alleged) actions of a few people?
