What if John Darwin was John McEnroe all along?
They could have got away with it too…
Hindsight is a wonderful thing. As we write, John Darwin’s wife is probably in court, clumsily attempting to explain to a straight-faced jury how she didn’t mean to do anything wrong, things got a little out of hand, and she’s really sorry, and hopefully won’t do it again. She’s having a terrible day, made even worse by the fact it could so easily have been avoided.
Had the couple just taken a step back and assessed the situation, he could have pretended to be John McEnroe, she could have stuck to the bogus canoe story, and no one would be any the wiser. They’d be living la vida loca in beautiful Mexico!
