    He's what Mr Barton has said on the Terry situation:

    This John Terry saga, has turned into one of the most hideously managed spectacles I have ever known. WTF is going on...... #sortitout

    We all know what was said. Its there on TV for all to see. Do I think hes a racist? No. I think hes said something really stupid in the heat of battle/argument. This should of been dealt with instantly (Like Suarez or more games) and put to bed. The longer it goes on, the worse it is for the game. Racism needs to be stamped out. We all agree on that. This is now affecting England as well as those involved. I dont understand how its managed to get this drawn out or out of control. The FA wants to shape up and sharpish. How can they strip him of the captaincy, when hes not been foound guilty in the courts of the land? Whats the point of going to court? He should of held his hands up like a f*cking man and took his punishment for what he said. This is now helping nobody. The one I feel for is Anton, hes done nowt wrong and has to be the subject of speculation and the possibility of going to court to give evidence. If u f*ck up, take ur punishment like a man.

    Once the issue went out of the FA's control, it was always going to get messy. They should have dealt with it instantly. Now its a farce..
    Think Terry's only got himself to blame. He said what he said. Then concocted a bad story.Cant understand what his defence will be in court?
    Should of thrown his hands up and admitted his grave error. Excepted his deserved disciplinary action and let everyone move on.
    Any juror worth there salt, on the evidence I seen has to find him guilty. TV evidence is damning for JT, in my opinion.
    I'll probably get a letter now from "the powers that be." If you're reading this don't bother.........

    Yesterday afternoon, following the stripping of the England captaincy from Terry, Barton took to the micro-blogging website to give his take on the matter.
    The Chelsea captain had his country's armband taken from him for a second time in the wake of an allegation of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand during a match at QPR last year.
    Terry, who denies the charge, will stand trial in July, just a matter of days after Euro 2012 finishes.
    Barton, who was playing in the match at Loftus Road in October, has defended his comments on the grounds of free speech.
    However a spokesman for the Attorney General's office said: "I can confirm the Tweets have been brought to our attention and have been viewed."

    Dominic Grieve QC is the current Attorney General. He is the Government's senior law officer and part of his remit is to make sure people facing criminal allegations receive a fair trial.
