Avoiding the World Cup – Day Six

Hmm. I find the wording of this press release from my local council highly suspicious…

The England flag will be flying from the roof of Lancaster and Morecambe Town Halls on Thursday in support of our boys playing in the World Cup in Germany.

The flag of St George will be flown when England matches are played and will continue to be flown on England match days if they make it through to the knockout stages of the tournament.
Football mad council staff will also be wearing their footbaking donations to Sport Relief

I wasn’t actually aware that when it came to “our boys”, there were any Lancaster or Morecambe-born players in the England squad, otherwise the Lancaster Guardian would be running them as pin ups by now…

As usual, the Council seems to have woken up the fact that a major event is taking place well after it’s started…
