I'm not going to South Africa. So instead I'm gonna try and watch a bit if not all of every game at work, or at home or in a bar or wherever. On the telly. With a beer. And I'm gonna predict who I think is gonna win. And talk about football stuff. So there.

What politics can learn from the World Cup

You can't be having draws in the knockout stages of a World Cup. Someone's got to win. Someone's got to lose. Same should be the case with elections. We can't be having tame draws when we need someone to get stuck in and sort out the economic mess. So maybe the voting should move into extra time when there's no clear winner. A chance to vote again. And if that doesn't sort things out, it has to be sudden death. Literally. Russian Roulette between the party leader. Last man standing gets the keys to number 10.
