A MAN with his head up his arse who thinks politics is something that only happens to other people cannot wait for the Qatar World Cup to begin.
Tom Logan has already put up his wallchart, laid a series of bets and hung his St George flag out of the window in readiness for the uncontroversial, apolitical tournament.
Logan said: “There’ve been some terrible things going on here – immigrants taking over hotels, protesters glueing cars to the M25 or something. It’ll be great to forget all that and just watch the footie.
“And what better place to do that than the sun-kissed, easygoing regime of Qatar? I went on holiday to Dubai and if Qatar’s half as good as that then travelling fans are in for a treat.
“Okay, you can’t be gay or trans, but it’s only for a month. Think about the sacrifices our boys are making to get in peak physical condition. Why not just give the lipstick a miss for a few weeks out of respect for our hosts?
“It might help you kick the habit altogether. Just saying.”
Logan is looking forward to taking in group games in new World Cup stadia where 67 migrant workers earning a pittance have died.
He said: “Accidents will happen. The best tribute to those workers would be having a great time over a few beers watching games in the stadia that killed them. It’s what they’d have wanted.”
