something-to-celebrate

FOOTBALL, Spain’s national sport, cannot solve every problem.  But if a triumph like the Euro 2012 can temporarily take everyone’s mind off the country’s appalling economic situation, then it becomes something more than sport.  Just one thought: why was the celebratory sea of red and yellow flags less distasteful and at the same time less redolent of racist under- and overtones than the chav-monopolised cross of St. George?
