Cold War echoes were felt in The Commons yesterday as Theresa May expelled the most Russian diplomats in thirty years.
Mrs. May’s hard line stance however left one question lingering: will England still play in the 2018 World Cup?
As it stands, there will be no appearance from Harry, Meghan or any members of the royal family, as well as British ministers, but no official word on whether we’ll be playing in Moscow in the June cup.
We asked football fans whether they’d support this boycott, and whether sports should be used as a bargaining chip in times of diplomatic strain.
Another student, who we interviewed on Facebook, said; “A boycott from a single team usually fails and can end up back firing on a team. The appropriate approach would be a diplomatic boycott. Ministers and Royal family. Its a symbolic move more than anything.”
