The FA are unhappy with the Government for failing to support them in their battle with England fans who booed players taking the knee before last week’s European Championship warm-up matches against Austria and Romania.Just when you think Johnson's incapable of doing anything right, he proves you wrong!
In a row that threatens to overshadow England’s opening game against Croatia on Sunday, Gareth Southgate and his players have had to justify their decision to continue with the anti-racism gesture...
Awwww, diddums! Fancy having to 'justify your decision'..! Don't these people realise footballers are unused to having to do this?
...with the Government’s response leading senior FA figures to conclude that ministers are deliberately taking a populist stance in opposition to the feelings of the national team.
Fuck their 'feelings', frankly. They claim it's their right to honour a dead US criminal and a Marxist pressure group, but they forget other people have rights too. And that includes the right to make their feelings known.
