I bet there were sighs of relief all round at the Daily Mail offices when FIFA said
players couldn’t wear poppies on their shirts this weekend. Journalists are among the best recyclers I know, after all why be creative when you can be lazy and just repackage the same shite you served up last year? England
So it is that with no celebrities or football teams left to bully into wearing them, the Daily Mail got all angry about the fact a bunch of sweaty, smelly foreigners had had the temerity to stop our boys from showing support for our other boys in their friendly with Spain.
As the filthy right wing rag couldn’t quite swing it, it took the intervention of two of
’s finest to finally make Sepp and his chums see sense. That’s right you can always rely on the balanced and measured members of the English Defence League to win the argument when our useless politicians have failed. England
|Who do you think you are kidding, Mr Blatter?|
The whole problem over the poppies was about whether or not they’re a political symbol. FIFA said they were but the right-minded people at the Daily Mail clearly demonstrated they weren’t by creating such a fuss that the Prime Minister was compelled to write an indignant letter. You can’t get less political than when the head of the Government is involved.
