probably a bit of jealousy involved coz its not like we didn't event football and have worse pop musicians than the rest of Europe.
Britain has had some of the best and most revered rock and pop artists in the world. Unfortunately, we send talentless nobodies to represent us in the
The low points for the British entries is because they are usually crap, rather than because of a sinister, underground group of ''English-hating''
Similarly, the English bid for the 2018 World Cup, on paper, was good, but the amateurish presentation destroyed any chance of England being awarded
the World Cup.
Despite what the Mail and Express may have said, Russia were deserving winners, as their bid was novel and exciting.
Sadly, the main reason that England lost out, was because they were going to be a replica of the 2006 World Cup in Germany, only 12 years later !
Germany: rich footballing heritage, great stadiums, multicultural country, great country to enjoy the World Cup in, fantastic infrastructure and
transport, huge boost to the economy.
Now look at the above, and tell me one reason why England would boast anything more than Germany, who only hosted the competition 4 years ago, and
what would be 12 years ago in 2018.
