TOPIC: Pull England out of the World Cup in Russia

Re:Pull England out of the World Cup in Russia 6 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
No question of normal relations with Russia - says Our Wonderful Leader

ITK can now confidently predict that Russia will win the World Cup - because no one else will be there !

Already talk of tabling a motion to the UN to get others on board.

Of course, all of this is Obama's fault !

If he had stuck by his "red line" (on the use of chemical weapons) in Syria
- instead of letting Putin's puppets walk all over it more than 1000 times since
- we would probably not now be in this position.

and there's a bonus too !

If England pull out of the World Cup they will be banned from the next one !

which, of course, will save even more embarrassment.

US senator John McCain has hit out at the Russian leader in a statement on the poisoning in Salisbury.

He said: "As we hope for the recovery of Sergei and Yulia Skripal, we must recognise the brutal reality: whether in the shadow of the Kremlin or in a peaceful town in the English countryside, Putin will not hesitate to engage in state-sponsored assassination and endanger the lives of innocent bystanders.

"He must not be allowed to treat the United Kingdom or any other nation as a venue for political murder. The precedent set by inaction would be disastrous.

"The United States and all of Britain's allies must stand firmly alongside the United Kingdom and be prepared to take resolute and appropriate steps to hold Russian authorities accountable for this outrageous crime – a crime that demonstrates so perfectly Putin's contempt for the sovereignty of a free people."

The Editor of Bild - Germany's leading newspaper - appearing on Newsnight, said that if England pulls out, that newspaper will campaign for a German ban too.

The Foreign Office has updated its advice on travel to Russia, saying "heightened political tensions" mean Britons should "be aware of the possibility of anti-British sentiment or harassment at this time".

In a statement, the FA said it would work closely with the UK government and authorities regarding its participation in the World Cup in June.

The world is starting to listen to ITK !!!!

www.express.co.uk/news/world/932487/russ...y-nerve-agent-attack

Incidentally, had a very nice response from the FA (when I wrote telling them to pull out of the World Cup).
I was quite surprised at their stance and there was a "hint" that they know a ban is coming !!!!

... and it will save the embarrassment !

Indeed ITK and many will agree with you. #MeToo ITK - a loony attempts to kill two people - a great reason to destroy the World Cup. Others (like me) think differently.

48% of England fans now support World Cup boycott
www.skysports.com/football/news/12016/11...nt-world-cup-boycott

The fans themselves now realise that a boycott is the best option.
They may not be doing it for the right reason - but realise its the best way to save further embarrassment.

Even Southgate himself is a World Cup flop.

Would Putin actually give a stuff about the football match?

I agree that a ban would be the best option as any other form of action eg sanctions hurts us as much as the Russians.

What are we losing? Just a silly game of football.

I fear Putin will use the event as Hitler did at the Berlin Olympics in 1936 as a propaganda tool.

There's hardly been a World Cup that hasn't had a boycott !

The holders once refused to defend it too !!!

www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43387549

Now that the boycott by the team is all but secured (it will be confirmed next week),
lets campaign to stop it from even being broadcast in the UK.

UK broadcasters should NOT give propaganda time to terrorist states !!!!

Could be a 'silly game of football' but to some people football is a religion. I wouldn't mind if places of worship were closed also.

Why bother with the World Cup when there is cricket anyway?

... and growing !

Boycotts have to start somewhere.
If England pulled out, other nations might follow.
That could trigger real change — look at Africa’s success after 1966.
Even if nothing changed, England could take pride in having put principle before fun.
Let’s face it: the team isn’t going to win the tournament anyway.

They are ALL getting on board !!!

A former top aide to Roman Abramovich at Chelsea football club calls today for Britain and its allies to boycott the World Cup in Russia this year.

In a letter to The Times, Christian Purslow, 54, managing director at the club until last year, said England, France, Germany and Spain should quit the competition to show the Russian public what the world thinks of President Putin.

For a bloke with no interest in football - and who regularly castigated, insults and ridicules its supporters - you're really keeping on top of the World Cup!

Despite your fervent wishes, this massive event - watched by every country on earth, without exception - will take place. If not in Russia - in one of the designated alternatives.

It's just ITK wishful thinking - of course it will still happen too much money is at stake.
