That FIFA Poppy Ban
I'm not a footie fan by any means but if Johhny Foereigner in the shape of someone called Septic Bladder, so I've heard, says that England can't do something then I take the view that we will do it. He's Swiss, a nation famed for creating a safe home for gold and art looted from the rest of Europe by the Nazis. (Advice to foreigners: If you annoy us, don't ever let us sit down and have a cup of tea before we retaliate).
Well, if he says no poppies on footie shirts (how I remember the exquisite pointlessness of standing in studded boots on a cold, wet and windy games field for the ball and a herd of players to race past every five minutes) then the UKBA should be instructed to don the marigolds every time he transits through a British airport.
