Football's Not Coming Home

England will not be hosting the World Cup in 2018, says the BBC.

I can see lots of positives here. The 2018 world Cup will be a pleasant spectacle on the TV that we will be able to watch or not, as we wish. It won't be the all-devouring wall-to-wall 24-hour wankfest that it might have been. We won't be mortgaging our children's futures (well, no more than they are at present with the Olympics) for bragging rights to a game of kickabout.

And everyone's going to blame the BBC.

    Yes agreed. A win win. No 24 /7 wankfest of the vanities and Pravda will be blamed.
    It might even wake up the sheeple and let them see what their taxpayer funded Labour mouthpiece gets up to. But I doubt it.

  2. I feel sorry for David Beckham, to be honest, even as a football non-fan. He's always seemed to me to be a sincere and genuine character who has matured over the years into a good role model (strange clothing and hairstyles apart). His presentation was good, and he deserved better.

    The voting - only two votes for England in the first round, and one of those was England - suggests there is far more going on here then a simple decision as to who had the best bid.

    I'm still pleased, though. In a who-cares kind of way.

  3. Everyone is a winner! For the first time ever foreigners are not coming here and the Daily Prole types are upset.

  4. Hurrah!

    It's marvellous that Cameron can waste time and money buzzing to and fro to Zurich when he should be digging out snow at Gatwick.
