EU votes to abolish English football team
! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.
The European Federation yesterday voted to abolish the English football team and replace it with a British football team.
MEPs were asked to vote on 180 proposals in less than 90 minutes, once of which was for the English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish football teams to be replaced by a British football team. UKIP MEPs voted against the proposals but it was – unsurprisingly – voted through by MEPs from other countries who have been petitioning UEFA and FIFA for years to abolish our national teams.
There was also a vote to enforce the flying of the EU rag and playing of the EU anthem at European football finals. I haven’t found out if this one got through yet.
