the Telegraph dispatched a journalist to investigate the labelling of suits being sold in M&S stores.

Bernstein and Woodward there.

Hmm. Is this news? Are you expecting an M&S Suit to be made in Britain?

On the same note, I'm not convinced by the Minecraft match ball we'll be having at the World Cup:

Although I expect that's made in Vietnam, rather than being crafted from an Ender pearl, two blocks of leather and another of string....

Nice example of Sterling bashing:

The suit was designed with input from the players and the Football Association and fitted the squad beautifully. Not a single M16 assault rifle tattoo could be glimpsed.

Quite so. Cretinous clickbait from the thinking man's daily mail.

Jacob_Richter - 12 Jun 2018 21:42:55 (#5 of 31)

But the reporters went into a M&S and looked at a label. That's investigative fucking journalism right there.

DesEsseintes - 12 Jun 2018 22:01:46 (#6 of 31)

It's more than a lot of journalists manage, to be fair.

ChankNolen - 13 Jun 2018 11:00:06 (#7 of 31)

Never mind, they will be home again by the 29th.

Lawlsie - 13 Jun 2018 11:04:00 (#8 of 31)

Not so sure Chank. Very easy group. Make it to the second round at least. Out in the quarters?

ChankNolen - 13 Jun 2018 11:05:14 (#9 of 31)

It would be easy to finish second if England weren't quite so fucking terrible, sure.

Lawlsie - 13 Jun 2018 11:05:56 (#10 of 31)

I'm only watching the England games in the hope they lose.

I loved it in 2016 when Iceland beat England.

Surely for a World Cup it is appropriate that the footballers wear clothing that is globally sourced.

SheikYerbouti - 13 Jun 2018 11:06:10 (#12 of 31)

Edgy.

Wow Lawls that's a tad negative. Why not pick to team you want to win and watch them instead?

Lawlsie - 13 Jun 2018 11:09:18 (#14 of 31)

I am.

Spain.

Be watching their game on Friday against Portugal.

Got the sausage rolls and pork pies in already.

Lawlsie - 13 Jun 2018 11:22:10 (#15 of 31)

Spain has sacked its manager.

Bugger.

ChankNolen - 13 Jun 2018 11:54:33 (#16 of 31)

I feel sorry for my youngest, who hasn't yet learned not to hope.

ChankNolen - 13 Jun 2018 11:56:12 (#17 of 31)

To be honest though, this time round a Good World Cup for England = less than a score of England fans being either killed, crippled or locked up on trumped-up charges.

You are aware of how much of a cheating miserable-excuse-for-a-human-being cunt that Ramos chap is, Lawlsie ?

Lawlsie - 13 Jun 2018 13:25:22 (#19 of 31)

Yes but they're so cute and I'm sick of backing Italy.

Lawlsie - 13 Jun 2018 13:26:04 (#20 of 31)

I also want Iceland to do well - better than England again if poss.

And France and is Ireland in it? I want Ireland to do well.

ABE for me!
