David Cameron has said he will fly the flag of St George over No 10 during the football World Cup in South Africa.Ah...good ole Bazzer, for one, would have a problem with that simple request:
The prime minister told MPs that the move would not cost anything and he hoped would help unite the nation behind the English team.
No matter what part of the UK they represented, he said he hoped all MPs would be shouting "come on England".
"England would be my least favourite team because...well, just because I hate anything English by instinct, rant, rant, rant and I’ll definitely not be supporting them, rant, rant, rant, (deep breath) I was born in 1966, when England last won, God how I hate them, and I’m fed up hearing about it ever since (spits on ground) they never shut up about it on the doorsteps of Coalisland, rant, rant, rant and I’m opting for Argentina because I admire the majesty of Lionel Messi and their fascist Junta's attempt in 1981 to free the Malvinas, rant, rant, rant but I’ll also be paying close attention to Tyrone in the All-Ireland because, because, because... and if they win, I'll...I'll...I''l paint a postbox green." - Barry McElduff, Sinn Fein politicianAlthough to be fair to him, so far he hasn't repeated his 2006 demand that World Cup charts and posters should be removed from Northern Irish workplaces on equality grounds, so a progress of sorts.
