Ready for the world cup?
Are you all set for the opening match in the 2010 world cup? Funnily enough there are more England flags being flown from houses than there were Labour posters displayed during the recent elections - not the case back in the day when every house had its poster, but that was when the party spoke for us. Now at least we have the footie, so pour the beer down the neck and cheer on the lads.
Today's game involves Mexico and my adopted countrymen have a far healthier attitude to bastard work than their English counterparts. Even thought the game kicks off at 9.00am Mexico time the whole country will be glued to their TV sets, the beer will flow and bastard work is something that the average man will not think about until tomorrow.
As the South African team walks onto the pitch the roar will go up: ¡Viva Mexico, hijos de la chingada!
