Same colours!

I believe that Ruth Davidson supports Dunfermline.
I have always thought that Gordon Brown is a Raith supporter.
Roy Hattersley and David Blunkett are both Sheff Wed supporters.
Iain Duncan Smith supports Tottenham.

John Bercow is an Arsenal season ticket holder & Corbyn claims to support them as well after growing up supporting Wolves (the football club).
Sadiq Khan is, logically for the mayor of London, a Liverpool “fan” and Chuka Umanna is....a Palace supporter. At the moment.

Well he certainly dated a few dogs.

Isn't one self important Eddie Izzard quite enough?....We have to have that guy.....Like you imply it's not as though loyalty is his byword.

Kind of makes you wistful for the days of Ronnie Corbett.

Corbyn follows Arsenal likely because their main rivals are the most Jewish club

There’s nothing I like more than reading a good political biography (don’t judge) and this week I’m dipping into Neville Chamberlain’s Legacy - Hitler, Munich and The Path to War.

It’s a sympathetic study of a painfully shy individual who was massively vilified for his unsuccessful policy of appeasement towards Hitler in the run-up to the 1939-45.

As with all these sorts of books, I’m on the look-out for any indications that their subjects were fans of football - preferably Palace.

As far as I can make out, neither Chamberlain, nor Churchill, nor Hitler had the slightest interest in the game. I wouldn’t be surprised if all three went through their whole lives without attending a single match.

Perhaps they thought it beneath their dignity to be seen enjoying themselves in the ranks of the common man.

It was really only in the 1960s, after Harold Wilson announced he was a Huddersfield fan, that politicians (Margaret Thatcher and Theresa May excepted) decided that football might be ‘cool’ and that declaring an interest might be a vote winner.

Blair (Newcastle), Cameron (Villa) and Brown (Cowdenbeath) have ‘come out’, Corbyn purports to follow Arsenal and Farage reckons to be a Palace supporter.

Which are the clubs,if any,that Johnson and Swinson are most likely to support?

 


Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

Michael Foot was a Plymouth fan and Neville Chamberlain, as well as PM, also played for Stoke.

Mellor came into the bar I was working in on Boxing Day a few years back to watch Fulham v Chelsea & returned 2 0r 3 months later to watch Chelsea play in a 4/5th round FA Cup Game which we didn't have. He also came in with a decent looking dark haired bird.

Blair was one of those Politicians who jumped on the Football bandwagon when the Britpop thing was in full swing. I seem to recall an Interview where he stated seeing Jackie Milburn play when he patently hadn't.
Blair lying again? Doesn't sound like him!!

didnt Ken Livingston make a fool of himself by banging on and on about his 'South London credentials'

being a West Norwood boy...on some local talk radio station they asked him the name of the stadium where Palace play?

and he got cross and stormed off the interview ?


Sadiq Khan is from Tooting, so of course he doesnt support Palace.

 


from the Etihad, Emirates, Molyneux, London Stadium, turf moor & Anfield to Old Trafford.....Raptors on the Road
