Ho, ho, ho. The plot thickens. I posted my views on the stripping of the captaincy from John Terry and was greeted with the usual knee jerk cobblers from the gRs, calling me a racist for holding the opinion that Terry is innocent until proven guilty.
Well now Capello has come out and said it too. So that, presumably, makes the England manager a racist too. That explains why he picks Bent and Young and Rio and Ashley Cole and Glenn Johnson and Uncle Tom et all.
Presumably Rio will now refuse to play for England as long as Capello is in charge, and all the other black players will join the boycott, forcing the FA to change the manager. What choice do they have in the light of Capello's naked racism? How can they play for a man who supports the principles of British justice and who believes in the fundamental principle of presumed innocence until guilt is proven?
For everybody must understand by now that different rules apply here. John Terry is whiteish and Anton Ferdinand is blackish, so the principles of British justice do not apply. No, this case is ipso facto. Now guilt is presumed and innocence has to be proven. This is photo-negative British justice!
And meanwhile, just as they united behind Anton in refusing to shake Terry's hand, so the QPR players must now show solidarity by refusing to play for England for as long as Capello is in charge. Except Barton of course, Barton doesn't care.
In fact, there's the perfect solution! Strip Terry of the captaincy and give the armband to Barton, the brother of a guy who committed racially motivated murder! In this crazy bloody world, that makes perfect sense!
