The beautiful game

In the interests of balance:

A Portuguese family was attacked minutes after England were knocked out of the World Cup on Saturday.

Their car was vandalised and a brick thrown through their house window when a crowd gathered on an estate where Portuguese families have settled.

Don’t you just love the way football brings different nationalities together?

  1. Don’t worry, I’m sure some Scots were around minutes later to repair the damage, buy them a few hundred rounds, and carry them around the town on their shoulders.

    Stirring? What’s that? ;-)

  2. In other news, a German had his mobile home torched here yesterday. Police aren’t sure whether it was just racism or special World-Cup-inspired racism.

  3. Gary

    Or perhaps, anti-mobile home sentiment.
