Football can play a big role in delivering the anti-racism message and must do so, but ‘Taking the knee’ needs to stop. The problem is the football authorities are too weak to take a lead on this.
Gurnelista, thank you for confirming my point. Your last post is, once again, pure dogma. Nothing you say can ever be questioned. Only a complete fool or total bigot would claim there are no benefits to leaving the EU and if you need me to spell these out then I suggest you’re an even bigger fool than even I imagined.
There are, of course, also downsides but given how the world was supposed to end if we voted for Brexit there can’t have been many who were unaware of them at the time of the referendum. That blows another hole in any argument over the media because the biggest and most influential player of all — the BBC — was very much on the side of remain. I see you conveniently ignored them, Gurnelista, which is strange given your apparent expertise on this matter.
My experience of Brexit was the exact opposite of yours, Cass — I don’t know anyone who voted for it on the basis of immigration. In fact the complete opposite because everyone I know recognised the benefits of immigration. The major issue I came across was the move by Europe towards a federal state controlled by unelected bureaucrats. Politicians are bad enough but at least we can vote them out.
Finally, it’s worth saying that Merkel is coming under a great deal of pressure in Germany to roll out the vaccine, which she’s refusing to do until it’s been approved by the EU. There’s an irony if ever there was one.
