Harry Kane vs Islam
Oh no, it’s the Morning Line
Harry Kane is looking to go head-to-head with the Qataris later today after the One Love armband business blew up yesterday, and it was confirmed that the host state was disinterested in any statements of dissent from visiting nations.
I take a view that when in Rome… and hope that Kane is yellow-carded before a ball is kicked for dissent. FIFA regulations don’t permit any such nonsense. As a countermeasure, Wokegate has confirmed that his boys will kneel. Again.
This act is in solidarity with the murder of the serial offending, fentanyl-pumped George Floyd, and the corrupt Marxist loons that were so eagerly embraced by do-gooders after the man’s death. This was, of course until daylight dawned, and eventually Kick It Out was briefly reinstated by broadcasters, before a final switch to the now occasional No To Racism tag-line.
It’s not so much a brave man who takes on the moral police in these places, and whilst I generally wish Kane no malice, this is foolhardy, and I don’t think that the boy understands the potential gravity of his situation.
There is unrest in Iran as witnessed by 15,000 souls that have been recently arrested.
That Muslim state has considerable form in this space and in 1988 at least, maybe more than 5,000 prisoners were executed. The sword of Islam is not to be trifled with.
Qatar only a few days ago cancelled a deal to widely sell beer, a deal worth tens of millions. The values and customs of foreign lands must be respected.
I’d be looking to get back on the camel I rode in on and take my fight to a more beatable foe.
