Still, never mind, for the Yanks are coming. Yes … the FBI is on the way, and it is reported that 1,000 armed US Federal agents are being sent here to ensure that nothing happens to their fellow countrymen and women when they arrive in “Little Old England”. From what I recall, in recent years, they have not been all that good at protecting their fellow citizens back in “the good old US of A”. I dread to think how they will react if they find themselves passing through ’Londonistan‘ on their way to the stadium.
