“BOYCOTT THE WORLD CUP”

By Pete Moore On March 13th, 2018

Some are suggesting that England boycott this year’s World Cup, for which the Russians paid handsomely to host. I’m not in favour of such things. Sport and politics ought to be kept apart. Besides, it would deprive the world of the awesome sight of England sweeping all before them. However, we must note the solidarity shown by the Republic of Ireland, Wales and Scotland, who won’t be in Russia this summer.

I suggest a traitor swap instead, to smooth things over. The Russians can have Jeremy Corbyn and we’ll have that tasty redhead who the Americans kicked out. Works for me.

  1. However, we must note the solidarity shown by the Republic of Ireland, Wales and Scotland, who won’t be in Russia this summer.

    True. I’ll just have to be content with my reserve team Argentina and watching the Engerlund ‘firms’ getting seven shades of shit kicked out of them before being sent home.

  2. Yet another enemy of Putin dies in mysterious circumstances:

    “Counter-terror police are leading an investigation into the “unexplained” death of a man in London. He is believed to be Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov, who claimed political asylum in the UK after being convicted of fraud…

    After being given a suspended sentence for another count of fraud in 2006, he fled to the UK to seek political asylum and became a critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Mr Glushkov also had a close friendship with fellow Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky, who came to the UK in 1999 after falling out with Mr Putin. Mr Berezovsky was found hanged in the bathroom of his Berkshire home in 2013 and an inquest recorded an open verdict.”

    Who’s suggesting that silly idea?

    Like boycotts of Israel, they only shore up the hawks and damage your potential allies in the dump.

    Labour MP Stephen Kinnock, Labour MP John Woodcock, and former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg.

  7. I know I’m not a football fan, but from what I remember England get knocked out of the competition at an early stage anyway. It hardly seem worth them boycotting a game or two.

  8. It seems that May has already began the Russia 2018 boycott:

    UK ministers and royal family members will boycott World Cup, Theresa May confirms

    Dave, I suspect ther’ll be quite a few Engerlund supporters knocked out along with the team:

  9. Disturbing article you linked to in the Gaurdian Paul.

  10. I remember reading an interview with some of them and they said, (something along the lines of), we don’t care if you’re a normal supporter and not a hooligan or if you’re a family man here with your children. If you come to Russia and we see you we’re going for you.
