    But will it though? All those millions living in shanties. All that will happen there is that the rich will get richer and the rest get to carry on living in abject poverty.

    From what I saw in February, yes, there is a good chance.

    I don't disagree. But unfortunately firemen/women don't generate thousands of pounds for thier organisation everytime they show their face/put out a fire/cheat on spouse. It's the way the world works I'm afraid!! I don't think they deserve it, but they are generating that money - it's not like it comes from our taxes or anything.

    I don't have strong feelings either way about football. I sometimes watch England if they're on because I live here, Scotland if they're on because I'm Scottish (very depressing to admit in footy season). Very occasionally I watch West Ham play with the old man, because he's a fan. Other than that I don't pay much attention.

    I may be dragged to watch a few matches by family. My solution is to take along my DS with BloodBowl. No swords, but orcs, pogo sticks, steamrollers, trolls and so forth. Plenty of distraction.

    Don't most football clubs operate at a loss?

    The clubs might, but individual players get sponsorship deals and advertising revenue don't they? I thought that's where they get most of their silly money...

    Well, sorry to upset the party, but I love footy and can't wait for the World Cup to start. For me,this time of year normally represents a footy wilderness as I wait for the new season to start in August. I am a season ticket holder and go to every home game.

    For those of you who don't like it, do what I do when I find something I dislike ... ignore it and let those that do, enjoy it in peace. As for the petty minded individuals who are going running off to their local councils at the first sight of an England flag, lighten up, what harm is it doing you?
