England’s football team need a draw tonight at Euro2012 to get through to the quarter finals. The country is (beginning to be) enthusiastic about the tournament. Yet when asked why British ministers are boycotting some games in the tournament and not others, Foreign Officer minister Jeremy Browne replied:
“I only observe that the only time that England have ever reached an international tournament final was when it was held in England. So these difficulties did not arise … history suggests that we are dealing in hypotheticals here.”
What is it about Jeremy’s and football? Stay positive eh?
