The real problem at the heart of the football and Brexit debateBY NEIL FREDRIK JENSEN Game of the People
FOOTBALL has often be used as a political tool, but it has now crept into the grand discussion over Britain’s membership of the European Union. It was inevitable, but what has been said so far is akin to scaremongering on the part of strategically-placed comments in the media by the government.
Karren Brady, or to use her correct society name, Baroness Brady, has sent out a warning that if Britain does depart the EU, hundreds of foreign Premier League footballers will have to leave the country.
How very selective! For a start, those that are here will be allowed to continue to be here, and in all probability, those that she is claiming will have to leave, i.e. European Union members, will no doubt be able to take advantage of some kind of reciprocal agreement that will emerge with the EU.
