More reasons not to support England

Rumour has it that the editor of Prospect, David Goodhart, invited vile New Labour hack John Lloyd and the architect of academy schools Lord Adonis around his Islington pad to watch the first England game. For those who are interested Goodhart has written extensively about the threat posed to western welfare systems by mass immigration and reclaiming the England flag. Anyway apparently the aforementioned ‘progressive’ nationalists (sound’s sinister doesn’t it?) watched En-ger-land beat Paraguay with their shirts tucked into their casual shorts. The Hitler Youth meets Alan Partridge anyone?
