Following the Belfast Telegraph’s World Cup county for country story, one of our occasional readers, wondered why we hadn’t spotted the following nuance:From ‘Steve’
I didn’t see a recommendation for your audience to watch Group C (presumably for Confrontation).
In it we have:
Ivory Coast: Their Gold White and Green tricolour is just like the Irish but backward – a bit like the SDLP.
Serbia & Montenegro: These guys have decided the only way forward is through partition – as all good unionists know. The team for all good UUP men then.
Holland: Land of the orangemen and home to good old King Billy – surely a team made for the DUP
Argentina: Still fighting to re-unite their country and get the Imperialist Brits off their land – Sinn Fein’s team for sure.
So there we have it – a group for all the political persuasions in Northern Ireland. Two on each with the DUP & SF likely to steam ahead and the SDLP and UUP left behind!
