This is England Euro 2012


With the Euro championships not far off, the official song for Team GB England has been unveiled with a fun loving Chris Kamara bouncing around with a selected audience of nice clean England fans - no EDLers, home-grown Islamic fundamentalists or rioters here. The song itself is unremarkable save for the fact that the strangely mustachioed and effervescent Kamara looks like one of the guys from camp 70s disco kings Cameo. The Word Up though is that John Tewwy and the other duds will once again let down the nation that is in a state of perpetual expectation. Go on! Ming 4 England lads...

We're ready for the Euro boys.

Perhaps though, in this age of MPs' expense scandals, corrupt or incompetent bankers, inner city riots and mass phone hacking by journos close to Blair and Cameron that something a bit more gritty should be chosen to represent this green and pleasant land (forget about industrial graveyards like Consett). Meanwhile in Alba, Craig 'nothing up front' Levein has lined up some glamour friendlies against Papua New Guinea and a reconstituted Libya to prepare Scotland for the next World Cup campaign. At least on the smaller stage, no-one notices us fail anymore...
