The dire England Support’s Band is finally banned
Good news! The Sun says the dire England Supporter’s Band, players of infernal rackets that puncture the life from England fans lungs, are “banned” from the Euros.
The paper says the band, “known for anthems like the Great Escape” has provided “the soundtrack at Three Lions matches” for 20 years. That’s not journalism – that’s a PR missive from Public Health England, who would soon have all fans, not just the weak-minded ones, dressed in jesters hats and as crusaders, harping on about The Lions and singing State-approved ditties on cue. Message to all: it’s not rugby. Stop it.
The elites, the witless and other no-marks enjoy having their chants provided by the England’ Supporters’ Band, football’s version of trad jazz, that theme music for lost causes. You might not have joined in with 10 German Bombers, No Surrender to the IRA or even In-ger-land, but if you don’t let the fans sing what they want to you end up with the hideously chirpy Great Escape and never will rejoice in the spontaneity of “Let’s all have a disco”.
Ban the band. And never ever let them back.
