I should have known better:
The Government is demanding a radical overhaul of English football finances to break the domination of the “big four” clubs.
Andy Burnham, the makeup-wearing cocktard of a Culture Secretary, is calling for Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool to share their winnings in Europe with other Premier League teams.
I've read this piece over and over again, it sounds to me very much like a government minister is saying that if a team does well and makes lots of money, it should give that money to other people.
But surely that can't be the case? Surely not even a bloke who wears more makeup than me and is known for idiotic pronouncements can be so egregiously stupid as to be floating this idea?
Mr Burnham, an Everton fan, is pressing for several measures to redistribute the wealth of the richest league in the world to its lower reaches. He wants the league’s £1 billion revenue from television and sponsorship rights to be shared out more evenly among its 20 clubs. He also wants smaller squads and compulsory quotas of English players in team line-ups.
No, he definitely is that stupid that he is floating this idea.
I am so gobsmacked that I can't even begin to do a basic economic fisk of this, I just can't work up the energy.
The Labour Party: determined to introduce equality at any cost, out of spite and stupidity. I'm just stunned.
