Lefty Lunacy: Senegalese woman paid £1 million to ban poppies


A Senegalese woman at FIFA has been revealed as the culprit behind the footballing body’s ludicrous order to ban players wearing poppies at international football matches.

Fatma Samoura is being paid £1 million to decide that poppies commemorating the fallen are considered a “political symbol”.

TCW agrees with Theresa May when she says that FIFA is being “utterly outrageous” and should “jolly well ought to sort their own house out” before hectoring others.

You would have thought FIFA would have enough to worry about with its endless corruption scandals.
