OK, I'm 10 days late with this but better late than never! Via Gavin (why didn't you give me a heads-up?), Toque says:
"No prizes for guessing the only country at the World Cup without its own government, national public holiday and national anthem..."Table posted at from Campaign for an English Parliament HERE.
Let's just repeat that for visitors who may not be aware: ENGLAND has no national public holiday, no government and no national anthem; to be honest this is a fucking disgrace - an obscenity - and quite obviously it isn't the first time it's been the case at a World Cup: can anyone (a football anorak for example) tell me what happened when both England and Scotland were at the finals?
