Ryan Giggs is Sports Personality of the Year- and Joe McElderry wins the X Factor

Both pretty good choices I reckon. How about you?

The former is playing for an occupying power, the latter is inherently subservient to the same power in everything he does.

I'm surprised at you. People who *really* believe in the things you claim to believe in ignore this sort of dangerous neo-imperial propaganda by proxy.

Hi Robin,

You know my views on how football has developed in the last 20 years-and how money power has destroyed so much of what was good, but that still doesn't mean we can't admire Ryan Giggs as a dedicated one-club pro and an excellent footballer.

I don't watch the X Factor normally but saw the sing-off and thought Joe sang pretty well. He seems to be a nice modest guy too, like Giggs.

Are you saying because of our opposition to the way money power dominates football, we should ignore the Premiership completely?

best w,
Neil
