Save me from a not so ‘sporting’ summer.
Posted by Big John on June 11, 2012
Well I survived all that ‘Jubilee’ crap. Now I only have to summon up my strength to somehow see out the Olympics.
In the meantime it’s the Euro 2012 football (soccer) taking up hours of TV viewing time and pages of newspaper coverage; and this ‘sporting’ competition is making the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
What idiot decided to make Ukraine a ‘host’ nation when it has a well documented history of racism, with the ‘Human Rights Watch’ recently reporting that “Racism and xenophobia remain entrenched problems in Ukraine” ?
You don’t have to look too far back in history to see that 80,000 Ukrainian Nazi supporters volunteered to join the infamous Waffen SS in 1943, and to see that anti-Semitism has far from disappeared in that part of the world.
I won’t go on as the subject is more than well covered in the press with plenty of pictures of swastika flags and “Sieg Heiling” so called ‘fans’. However I have noticed that Ukraine is sending a team to the London Olympics …
… Now that could be interesting !
