SHOP SELLING 'ANYONE BUT ENGLAND' WORLD CUP SHIRTS ARE WARNED BY POLICE


A company selling "Anyone but England" T-shirts for this year's World Cup has rejected suggestions it is racist after police in Aberdeen visited its store.  Police warned Slanj, which also has stores in Glasgow and Edinburgh, that a window display featuring the shirt could cause offence.

Grampian officers advised a store worker to consider whether the display was appropriate and should be removed.  Ross Lyle, from the company, said: "To be honest we're absolutely flabbergasted.  "We have been selling this T-shirt for the past three months and we've had a great response.  "Even the English people who come into the store think it's a laugh and just a bit of tongue-in-cheek football banter.

Aye, I suppose it is a 'bit of a laugh' and twenty years ago, I would have been at the front of the queue to buy one.  But I may surprise a few people when I say that I think we in Scotland with some degree of autonomy from England, although I would like more,  should be a bit more mature and drop this xenophobic attitude.  Personally, I hope England do well.  I watch their players playing every week, because let's face it, Scottish Football is SHITE!  There is more chance of me winning Friday's Euro Lottery as there is of SCOTLAND WINNING THE WORLD CUP.

Now, WHERE DID I PUT THAT TICKET?

If those paragons of virtue John Terry and Ashley Cole are selected to represent my country at this year’s World Cup tournament, I will gladly wear the T-shirt myself!

Hopefully England will get gubbed.

It's crap like that that really sums up our 'nation'. Regardless of the fact that the polis had no right to do what they did, if a shop down south had been selling similar t shirts laughing at Scotland all the twats who defend shite like the t shirts as a 'joke' would be screaming racist at the drop of a hat.

We really are an bunch of two faced bell ends.

Dave, I wish to fuck they were Scottish. I would rather have a couple of manly shaggers that two twats who get pished and make stupid 'V' signs to the cameras when they are subs for the next game. That prick Ferguson would never play for Scotland again if I was in the SFA, even if we never qualified for anything and he was the best player in the world.

Wayne, for fuck's sake. You had split up with her when Terry shagged her.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Rab, you're right. I'm glad you're on the same wavelength.

"Grampian officers advised a store worker to consider whether the display was appropriate..." Approriate to what exactly Officer? The word 'appropriate' seems to have been turned into "politically acceptable by lefty whiney guilt merchant proffessional offence victims".

No, I'm not offended but, on the other hand, I'm so offended by this simple joke that I'm gonna scream and cry until the bastards give me some compensation for hurt feelings, about £500 should do nicely.

DL. Yeah but Terry was humping my ex missus for 4 months while my kid slept next door. And he didn't tell me he was humping her and I only found out when the injunction was lifted. Up until then he still claimed he was my bessy mate.

Banned, see when you get your compen. can we meet in Aberdeen for a good bevvy in Union Street.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Wayne, I take your point mate, but if he had been shagging your kid then you might have had a shout and I can bet that the room wasn't 'next door' as she probably lives in a fucking big mansion that you as an average player getting paid far too much bought. Anyway it's better for the team that you drop out because he's twice the playes you are IMHO!
