What a bloody disgrace. How dare these jumped up journos put at risk our bid to host the World Cup by exposing bribery and corruption at the very top of FIFA?
Has the British media got no sense of what is right and proper? So what that Amos Adamu and Reynald Temarii were attempting to sell their votes? That's only to be expected when the tournament is worth God knows how many hundreds of millions of pounds to the host nation! What were these guys trying to charge exactly? A paltry £500,000, and the money was going to be used to build artificial pitches so was going back into the grass roots of African football anyway.
And as for poor Ismael Bhamjee of Botswana, Amadou Diakite of Mali and Ahongalu Fusimalohi of Tonga and Tunisia's Slim Aloulou, why are they being suspended? Just because they didn't dob their mates in! Outrageous!
Bloody hell, does anybody think the Yanks got the World Cup without oiling the gears with a few under the table dollars? And South Africa? The FIFA committee genuinely thought that the Rainbow Nation was the perfect nation to host the World Cup, did they? Of course, the World Cup only lasts four weeks but diamonds are forever apparently!
It's about time the media kept their grubby exposes to themselves! Well said Andy Anson for telling the BBC to keep their noses out of FIFA's business. This country isn't interested in ethics, values, integrity, honesty or fair play. Where does that get you? All we want is to host the World Cup; so what that a few dodgy Africans pocket a wedge of dosh in the process?
Does anybody believe that all the money raised by Comic Relief gets to the poor in Africa? But does that stop us from shelling out for British comics to stay in 5 star hotels in Uganda whilst appealing for us to part with our hard earned cash to help build a well that costs just £20? That's possibly less than Lenny Henry's minibar bill for each night of his stay! We don't object to that do we? But then it's one rule for us Brits and another rule for the Africans it seems!
If the BBC show that documentary on FIFA corruption, then we should withhold our license fees in protest! Unpatriotic bastards! Bloody hell, they will be telling us that Italian clubs shouldn't be allowed to bribe referees next!
