Messi abandons Barcelona training

first_img Loading… Lionel Messi is expected to send a new burofax to Barcelona confirming he will not be attending pre-season training, as he begins all-out warfare with the club. According to RAC1 and El Periodico, Messi has realised Barca won’t accept negotiations, so is going all-out to break away from the club where he spent his entire career. It is an unfortunate ending to this decades-long relationship, but if Messi is able to ascertain the clause in his contract allows him to leave for free, then Juventus, Inter, PSG, and favourites Manchester City are in the running. He had been expected tomorrow for medical tests, the precursor to pre-season training, but it’s reported he will now send a burofax warning he will not becoming. The legal battle is now inevitable, as Messi had tried to meet with President Josep Maria Bartomeu for talks to work out a solution to the impasse. The response he received was that Barcelona were only interested in talking to him about extending his current contract and nothing else.Advertisement Promoted Content8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its GrowthWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooFans Don’t Know What She Looks Like Now7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black HolesA Soviet Shot Put Thrower’s Record Hasn’t Been Beaten To This DayWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?9 Actors Who Stay Famous For That One Movie They Did 10 Years Ago6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A Drone6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The WorldBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Themcenter_img With both parties taking a hard-line stance, the situation is getting increasingly ugly.

GOP lawmakers poised to change Judicial Nominating Commission membership

first_imgDES MOINES — A GOP proposal on the legislature’s agenda this month would change who selects half the members of the commission that sends the governor nominees for vacant judgeships. Vanderbilt University professor Brian Fitzpatrick spoke recently at a Des Moines event organized by the Iowa Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society.“Lawyers are no less political than anyone else when they are on these judicial selection bodies,” Fitzgerald said.Today half of the members of the Iowa Judicial Nominating Commission are lawyers elected to the commission by other lawyers. Representative Steven Holt, a Republican from Denison, says fewer than one out of five Iowa attorneys votes in the elections for commission members.“We’re talking about a system that I believe is not representative of the people because you’ve got 18.45 percent of this attorney group placing these folks on the commission,” Holt says, “and I don’t think that is the way we need to do it.”Holt is leading House consideration of the GOP’s plan to have the top four legislative leaders from both parties appoint half the Judicial Nominating Commission members. Representative Mary Wolfe, a Democrat from Clinton who is an attorney, opposes the move.“If we switch to this plan, the people of Iowa are going to have to walk into courtrooms, knowing that we are putting politics first,” Wolfe says.The legislators made their comments this weekend during an appearance on Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa Press” program.last_img read more
