Gordon Brown’s budget targets soccer hooligans

Gordon Brown, the UK chancellor of the exchequer and Tony Blair’s rival wants to teach manners to English soccer hooligans and turn them into foppish cricket fans. Yeeeeesh! A move that will definitely not make the stand-offish Brown any more popular.
From the Guardian, Mar 22
“And I am setting aside £2 million for a new venture between police, premier league football clubs and community groups with the football foundation to offer young people evening sports and to tackle anti social behaviour.”

  1. I don’t think Gordie gets it.Imagine Joe Cole or Wayne Rooney scoring and the english soccer fans applauding as if Trescothick hit a 4. You gotta get a bit more ‘motional than that and tear a few gates down. Just sayin.’
