Some angry footballists yesterday
The England World Cup Bid Team have demanded that FIFA introduce vote-box technology following their low score in the World Cup Bid match yesterday.
The team were adamant that they had scored many more votes than the referee had given them credit for. At the final whistle they surround Sepp Blatter and angrily protested that many voting slips had crossed the line but they were only showing as having scored two.
"Ref, what ya doin?", squeeked Captain David Beckham. "I've well played this campaign well and, you know, like, we've got to have scored more than, like, err...what's that number after one again?"
Inside right Prince William was equally vociferous as he harranged the referee. "Is one blind?", the second in line to the throan enquired. "Several of those pieces of paper were clearly in, and I demand reconsideration in this matter forthwith".
Sir David Richards, Chairman of the Premier League said, "I think technology is the only answer here..........what? me? a hypocrite?"
The ugly scenes followed the apparent ending of FIFA's "Fair Play" campaign as referee Blatter beat away his aggressors with a large brown envelope stuffed with roubles.
After the match, when pressed for further comment, Prince William could only reply "sorry chaps must dash, Beckham's gone AWOL and I can't find Kate".
