Letter: Football thugs

Sir: Your editorial comment (16 June) that we should withdraw from the World Cup showed remarkable lack of foresight. Of course, when the word gets around that we have pulled out, all those morons bent on destruction will pack up their knuckle-dusters and tootle off back to Tunbridge Wells. They will not go off the deep end and wreck everything in sight, no of course not!

If you are seriously worried about it all, why not make a real stand, and withdraw all your journalists from the World Cup, stop reporting on football altogether, and show the country you mean business. Or would lack of business suddenly take priority?
