    wot… no referees, yet they invite the Argies along to play???

    probably the football equivalent of the liberal-left’s climbing into bed with the psycho-islamists    😀

    OT but slightly linked and very funny.

    The BBCs own head muppet John Simpson visits Uganda and wonders why there is an upsurge in anti gay feeling and rhetoric, now Simpson carefully looks for and quickly finds the culprits his prejudice needs him to find and then he goes after them with a will.
    Its all the fault of the colonial white British(quelle suprise)who imported anti gay laws and Victorian principles.
    But blaming the colonialists is not enough, there are other political hate figures ready for the BBCs venom, it seems that anti gay hysteria is being whipped up by evangelical Americans who are funding this anti gay crusade with their huge funding, did I mention the huge funding?
    So there you have it, British homophobes followed by American homophobes, all the BBCs enemies lined up and stoned to death, in a metorphorical way of course 😉
    The blacks are not to blame, it is of course that well known pantomime villain duo ‘yank&Limey’ responsible for all of Africas woes in perpetuity, the gift to the BBC that keeps on giving, if there is a problem in Africa it can be traced to whitey somehow.

    A very funny confrontation with a black preacher had me in tears when the preacher says to Simo “I weep for you and your country, what can we do for you? Your nation taken over by islamists and your kids stab each other and you think its funny, I weep for you and your race, what can we do for you”.
    The BBC has a view of Africa that sees whitey to blame for everything, the USA and the British as criminals and the Africans as victims of the whites, never before has the BBC looked so petulant,ignorant,stupid and misguided.


    • Cassandra King says:

      I forgot to mention that when the black preacher weeps for Simo and his nation he places a hand on fat boy Simpsons shoulder and the look of utter disgust and disdain that appears on Simpsons face as he glares at the tearful preacher was an absolute picture, the preacher could have been a plague carrier the way Simpsons face imploded like he was sucking on an unripe lemon.

        I would love to have seen it.  The idea that whitey introduced homophobia to Africa is ludicrous. How can they blame homophobia among African muslims on whitey ?


    • Jack Bauer says:

      I thought the stereotype was of those white upper class former public schoolboys importing their “Greek” ways into Africa?

      The colonial masters buggering their way through Africa?

      Isn’t that the most likely reason Africa has it in for gays?

    Hmm, so a mixed Israeli / Palestinian Territories Team but not a mixed Northern Ireland / Republic of Ireland team, just a team from Ireland.  Yeah, that really contributes towards peace, doesn’t it?

    That said, on the whole I personally dont find much to quibble about in the piece.


    • deegee says:

      While I personally don’t think bringing Palestinians and Israeli together to play sport will make any real progress it can’t hurt.


      • hippiepooter says:

        No, I dont have any exception to that, the point I was making is while the organisers dont respect the 2 polities in the Island of Ireland that’s not very conciliatory between the respective traditions.


  5. It's all too much says:

    “Among them are organisations which use football to address ethnic violence in Israel and the Palestine Territories, environmental pollution in the slums of Kenya, HIV and Aids education in South Africa, landmine education in Cambodia and gang culture in Ecuador.”

    HOW? Can anyone help me here?  How the **** does football help? By what mechanism does some smug little’specially selected’ kids and their ‘carers on a football jolly to South Africa address HIV.  I postulate that the leadership of the ANC deciding that HIV is a sexually transmitted disease and not a western plot would be more influential

    By the way, they have omitted AGW, japanese whale murder, the need to have opt-out organ registers etc etc etc etc etc

  8. Sherman Engelmeyer says:

    The World Cup is a small gold trophy representing the hopes and ambitions of every footballing nation on earth. Since the advent of the World Cup in 1930, there have been two trophies awarded to the winners.The Jules Rimet Trophy was the original prize for winning the World Cup. Originally called simply the World Cup or Coupe du Monde, it was renamed in 1946 to honour the FIFA President Jules Rimet who in 1929 passed a vote to initiate the competition. Designed by Abel Lafleur and made of gold plated sterling silver on a blue base of lapis lazuli, it stood 35 cm high and weighed 3.8 kg. It was in the shape of an octagonal cup, supported by a winged figure representing Nike, the ancient Greek goddess of victory.”
