Sorry you gay porn addicts (which is most of you) but tis this:

Tory MP boycotting England games will follow Euro 2020 final on his phone

Lee Anderson says he will not watch on Sunday because of players taking the knee but he will check on score
England players take the knee
England players again took the knee before the Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark.
The Conservative MP Lee Anderson will not watch England in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday as he continues his boycott of their matches over the players’ decision to take the knee, but he concedes he will be checking the score on his phone and cheering on the team.

Anderson, the MP for Ashfield in Nottinghamshire, said he would continue to snub the team, having received emails and abuse over his decision not to watch the games after England players began taking the knee before the start of the tournament in a show of solidarity against racism.

“I’ve had a bit of abuse about my decision not to watch the England matches. That’s my decision, I’m not forcing my views on anybody else,” he said in a video update posted to his Facebook page.

“I don’t like the taking the knee business, I think it associates with Black Lives Matter movement. I know the England players don’t think it does, but it does, it does to me,” he said. “But that’s their choice to take the knee, and it’s my choice not to watch the matches.”

Sporting an England T-shirt, Anderson said he would be cheering the team along and checking for score updates during the final. “I will be supporting England on Sunday night, I’ll be wishing them along, I’ll be checking my phone for updates to see if they’ve scored and cheering if they have. I hope they win and I hope it comes home.”

At the start of June, Anderson announced: “For the first time in my life I will not be watching my beloved England team whilst they are supporting a political movement whose core principles aim to undermine our very way of life.”

The decision has been ridiculed by many, and prompted a jibe from the Labour leader, Keir Starmer, during prime minister’s questions on Wednesday before the semi-final. “I’m sure the whole country, with the possible exception of the Conservative MP for Ashfield, will be watching this evening and cheering England on,” Starmer said.

The England manager, Gareth Southgate, has supported the players’ decision to continue with the gesture, despite some boos from fans in earlier matches in the tournament, saying: “I think we have got a situation where some people seem to think it is a political stand that they don’t agree with. That’s not the reason the players are doing it. We are supporting each other.”

I think taking the knee is a bit hackneed (sic) but this is a ridiculous way for an adult behave! Must be a few right wingers in the same boat, though they have obv been watching the matches on the sly........

"Fight racism"?  The very phrase is as belligerent as the alleged offence.

where did the rest of this post go betfair spies? what was it that offended you - obv wasn't the stupid white people bit so was it the fact that I said a black kid was doing well at school or were you just bored?

I  just told him he'll meet a lot more (pretend) racists and ignore the idiots whatever colour they are. TBF he was captain of his school debate team in whatever the 2nd year is  now and is just as much of a smart rse as I am so I've no worries. I'm pretty sure he can look after himself - unlike the ****clad betfair spies, for real.............

Not biting - its trues scandy you used to post some insightful things but the last 18 months you haven't, just making a point. I aint happy that my previous pst was taken down as there was nothing wrong with it. Either an over sensitive white 'dude' that has never met any black person but thinks they are cool to a right wing idiot. Just working out which one of you is the betfair spy.........

you were biting when you said 1 post in 13 years proves your point, like I know anything about you lol, it was not meant to be taken seriously, the only thing that has changed is that 1 year ago I posted on far less serious topics in chit chat, now that's closed and many migrated to politics forum, been in more 'contentious' debates, I don't think I've ever been sensible though, I was always being reported by the right wing mafia that eventually got it closed, ask Brian Cox the youtube nutter, he's probably still on the pj harvey video wagging his finger yelling 'you're time will come shaven', bless him.

More to do with Mr Anderson ripping up his tv license and pledging not to pay a penny more.... he cant watch the final even if he wanted to.  So all this 'taking the knee' stuff is really a smokescreen
