racial abuse on social media


Recommended Posts

It seems that the morons who racially abused the England players have stirred up a hornets nest in politics . My own view is that politicians should'nt have got involved in the mass hysteria surrounding the competition . They don't seem interested in  supporting any other sport , obviously there's no vote  catching opportunity  in Rugby or the Tour de France . The Government with Labours backing are proposing  banning anyone found guilty  of on line abuse of a footballer  from games . Harking back to my love of the Marx Brothers , this is the sort of  film script that they would have had . The offence is so serious  that we'll ban you from attending games .Is there any possibilty that these key board morons actually attend any games ? It's the equivalent of banning me from watching Love Island or Ant and Dec ( or most modern television come to that ) I don't watch them so it's not a great punishment . A worse punishment would be to make me watch them . And why will it be just racial abuse of footballers  , do other people get abused on social media ? . I really can't believe  how low law and order this nation has sunk , to consider banning them from matches is sufficient punishment .

Rant over , still very very few swallows Older , it looks like they'll  all be able to go back to Africa in a taxi  instead of flocks of thousands .

Nice to see again tonight Dave. I’m sure Alan will have taken all that advice in, NOT.

I have 2 swallows nests in my (now empty) stables but they have been around all of the 21 years I have been here.

There have been house martins around, not sure if they have built any new nests, maybe one and reusing an old one.

They are all still in the country fenman. They wont be leaving for Africa before September - if the weather is going to hot up as forecast, it could be later than that.

Easy for me to say, but, the media and frenzy surrounding all of this is fuel for their agenda.

Ignoring them might just thin them out a bit.

Still only one swallow here as well, but if they were here in the last two weeks they would have had to learn to swim! 

In the south generally older, there are plenty about and certainly here in West Devon. Take care sir - hope to meet up when the new season starts up.
