Can we have our money back too?

In the light of this and allegations of Knighthoods being requested for our unsuccessful bid, it puts the snooker and cricket scandals into the shade bigtime!

It looks as if Mr Blatter is going to remain "Whiter than White". Yet it has all occurred during his watch.

The difference here is that in Snooker and Cricket it was corrupt players.

In football it is allegations of corrupt FIFA officials much like the allegations against the IOC some years ago.

The problems stems from the fact that for the 24 executive members, who vote on who will get the World Cup, there is absolutely no accountability.

It was reported on last weeks Panorama that the Swiss Government are at last looking at FIFA and have threatened that they will require them to quit the country if they do not sort out their problems.

All 200+ FIFA delegates should vote on World Cup allocation and additionally there should be a maximum tenure on all executive officials of no more than two terms i.e. 8 years.

woodchip. I think you have got that chip on your shoulder. Is there anybody you do like?

By the way I don't dislike all politicians, but wish they wouldn't tell so many porkies. It would be nice if they could give straight answers to questions of course, but they all seem to have to ask permission first.

I will not forget when Blatter was giving out the winners of the World cup and in each case he obviously knew who the winners were before he actually read the card. Who says it wasn't fixed! He stated the names before actually looking at the card. Is he psychic? Or just very clever? Or bent!

I'm afraid it's just the same old story - money!

When big money becomes available the crooks follow it, football is the perfect example. Cricket and snooker are relative newcomers to large attainable cash sums.Boxing always had a bit of a 'dodgy' past.

Have we had any bad golf 'stories' yet? Surprising.
