The English are moral, the English are good, And clever and modest and misunderstood

The Tory Reptile suggests a suitable anthem for this year's Football World Cup, fed up as he is with general whining from North of the Border.

Curiously, he omits to quote the middle eight, which sums up the attitude of English Footballers rather more accurately than he might wish:
"And all the world over, each nation's the same,
They've simply no notion of Playing the Game:
They argue with umpires; they cheer when they've won;
And they practise beforehand, which ruins the fun!"
Southgate's Penalty anyone?
