England are out, support England

! 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.

Well, that went will didn’t it?  For the first time ever I got up and walked out before an England game finished.  While England were making a half hearted attempt at trying to claw back a 3 goal deficit I was in the garden getting the BBQ started.

England flagsI notice that a couple of the part time patriots in my street have already taken down their flags, including the house behind us that put their flag up just before the game started and had already taken it down before the game finished.  By this time tomorrow the country will be purged of the flags the part time patriots have painstakingly bedecked their houses and cars with.

So, with England out, the question is who to support next and on the basis that I have a Dutch god daughter and they are the only country in Europe not to hate us with a passion, I will be supporting the Netherlands.  But unlike the part time patriots, my England flag will stay up.

    Oh oh, just what a lot of us feared, our defeat has led to a resurgence of English football violence. I hope these are isolated incidents but it shows that there is plenty of racism in English football. Even the very pro-English Daily Mail has reported it

    “This was one of a few isolated incidents of football violence to flare around the world after England were sent crashing out of the World Cup after being beaten 4-1 by Germany.”

    Yobs and bad losers.

    And “our defeat”?

    Oh, Steve!

    LOL!!!

    Don’t be drawn in by ‘Steve’ He is a troll who spends lots of time on the CEP forum. I would have thought he was bright enough to change his pseudonym for this site, obviously not!
    As for flags. My new flagpole in the garden flies the C of G year round and will continue to do so. Sadly the additional bunting will now be put away.

    Thanks, Daggs – I have come across Steve’s fake hand wringing on the CEP blog recently, hence my comment.

    The message needs to be sent that the Cross of St. George is not just for football it is for LIFE.

    Murray is out, can we now return TV and Radio to its usual setting of ‘something that foreigners do’?
