Then came the news of the expected FIFA
stitch up decision. England’s contingent were furious when it was announced the 2018 World Cup would be held in Russia.
David Cameron refused to congratulate his Russian counterpart Vlad (The Impaler) Putin, David Beckham refused to pose for photographs and Prince William refused to eat his porridge until Nanny had given him a hug.
Many sports writers immediately suggested that the FIFA executive, already exposed as bung seekers, had been handsomely paid to arrive at their decision.
Boggart Blog can exclusively reveal this is not true. Russia (which is NOT a Mafia state, such allegations are completely unsubstantiated we were assured by a gentleman wearking an Astrakahn Fedora and carrying a violin case) presented gifts to FIFA officials which were well within the definition of “acceptable hospitality.”
Mr. Putin merely arranged for ever member of the FIFA panel to be sent a big dead fish.
