While there’s a lot of barely disguised glee in this country that we upped sticks and hoity-toitied off out of Europe last week, the rest of the European Union try to figure out away to prevent their own economic collapse. They’re getting it wrong, as even if they’re not English – they are still politicians and innately the wrong people to put in charge. What Europe might have going for it – Europe, as in the continent without us – is that despite all their problems, their reaction is to work together, not just to score points with the thick and deluded.
It appears that after Shamrock Rovers fans goaded poor, bedressed Harrance Redknapp about his impending trial for tax offences, he replied by way of up-yours. Good and good; much as he’s a horrible, grasping bell, I hope that UEFA realises that it’s part of the spectacle and doesn’t take offence on behalf of the non-offended.
Well done, Andi
