David Cameron coming to Zurich

You may have thought you had escaped having UK PM around you but think again. He is to visit Zurich next month for the 2018 World Cup decision

BBC News

Perhaps he may be also be stocking up on chocolate for Christmas

Re: David Cameron coming to Zurich

No doubt bearing a big sack of cash, sorry, um vote winning vouchers to remind those with FIFA powers to cast their ballots for England. Allegedly.

How dreary, another summer of soccer. I can hardly wait...

Re: David Cameron coming to Zurich

I don't know why he's bothering, I'm not in any doubt that England are about to get well and truly screwed over in their bid to host World Cup. How can it be that when the British press exposes FIFA to be rife with corruption and incompetence that that country's bid is made to suffer? They didn't make the story up and now they've been portrayed as the bad guys. The biggest joke is that the England bid have gone on hands and knees to the BBC and begged them not to screen the Panarama investigation in case it damages the bid further. So much for the free press.

I think FIFA will award the World Cup to Russia, at least they can have journalists assassinated there when something unpleasant is written about them.

Meringue 'em and your defense would be "I wanted to welcome him with some Eton Mess.".

(okay, that is a terrible attempt)
