    Accusing footballers of hypocrisy for protesting about human rights abuses in Qatar rather misses the point

    No sooner had the protests started than the backlash began. The international football teams who took the bold step of highlighting human rights abuses in Qatar ahead of next year’s World Cup finals in the Gulf, by wearing protest T-shirts ahead of qualifiers, were immediately dismissed as hypocrites, or worse. How could Germany’s goalkeeper Manuel Neuer take part in his national team’s decision to wear shirts, which spelled out the words “Human Rights”, ahead of their game against Iceland when his employers, Bayern Munich, are sponsored by Qatar Airways, have a gift shop in Doha airport and regularly hold winter […] More

    After the past 12 months I’ll take a passport to the pub any day

    It’s true to say I like a drink now and then. My tastes have changed over the years and at the moment I’m a fan of so-called craft beers. But here’s the thing, I don’t go to the pub very often. Every now and then, probably no more than three or four times a year, I might nip to the pub but my real purpose isn’t to drink (although I might have a pint or two) it’s to eat. So I’m finding it very strange that as lockdown has gone on, I am developing something akin to an overwhelming urge […] More
