BBC Panorama, to my mind one of the great institutions of our time. Know for going a bit over the top to drive home a point but still, a franchise which brings more than a small measure of quality to what can sometimes be a news world dominated by economy, if you follow.
Stadiums of Hate
Not exactly pointing a spot-light at anything unexpected but still some grim viewing. Think this will connect with a few people (of a certain age) on these forums and maybe prove an eye opener for some others.
For it's a grand old team to play for.

Less of a franchaise, more of an Institution.
Problem for Euro 2012 is not only the perception of trouble but the potential to be ripped of on accomodation Sadly the Red Top press do paint eastern Europe to be beset with the worst of all low level criminals (Ukrainian Mafia run all the tea shops, Illegal Tole booths sprining up on sidewalks, etc that kind of thing ) . Something the English are vey wary off in the current economic climate, is paying out for the type of trip that will have you clapped in irons in some desolate prison cell akin to midnight express because you linadvertantly broke wind next to a corrupt Policeman. I don't know how other Wester Europeans feel about it though.
Also Tying to get back into the UK during the build up to the Olympics is not something I would want to be doing either.
Best stay home eh?
I watched the whole video, most of that crap is just disgraceful. Some real WTF moments too like the Ukrainian patriot guys talking "Germany without Hitler was not Germany", uh buddy, you're f@ckin' Ukrainian, not German. The Nazi's would have gassed your Slavic ass you racist idiot.
"We are back bitches" - Adolf Hitler.
I just can't imagine anybody thinking that racist behaviour is acceptable in public.
But then again I live in Canada with all it's warts. We banned fog horns from hockey rinks recently because of decibel levels.
Imagine trying to get a group to do the facist salute. But hey the Ukraine cop said they were only pointing.
Living in NB with it's French and English split and new immigration patterns we'd just be in a constant state of chaos with that kind of behaviour.
Well in the USA some 50% of Republican voters think Obama was born in Africa, which translates to 25% of the entire population being racist. It's just swept under the rug though....

If you were to retweet that Donald Trump actually has a living, breathing fox transplanted on his head then people would soon begin to.... Oh, hang about!
