Now, my first reaction, admittedly, was to think to myself that the decisions of referees in the Premier League are absolutely none of Gordon Brown's fucking business. But since then, I must confess, the idea has started to grow on me. I mean, read this bit again:"Not only must the captain set the right example for the rest of the team; I believe he must take greater responsibility for the overall behaviour of his team-mates"
Yes, this is a splendid idea. I propose, therefore, that the next time a minister in Team Gordon's lineup launders money, or proves to be utterly incompetent, or launders money, or presides over a massive fuckup in their department, or launders money, then not only should that minister be sacked, but the captain of the Government himself should receive a yellow card.
And we all know what happens when you get two yellow cards.
Um... In this case, does two yellow cards mean that you get tied to a chair and then put in a windowless, soundproofed, concrete room containing nothing but your humble Devil and a piece of two-by-four...?
