Hero/Villain of the Day-21.12.04

Hero: Tony Blair:Not only did he pay a visit to Baghdad,the British Prime Minister went on to visit Israel to launch a new push for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Fair play to him for visiting these places particularly at this time of the year.

Villain: FIFA:I was disgusted to read today what the governing body of fottball believe justice to be.They have gone and given a fine to the Spanish FA for the racist chanting which occurred during the friendlies involving England a month ago.They have been fined 100,000 Swiss francs which is the equivalent of €64,500.
The English FA stated they "must accept" FIFA's decision.Privately,the English FA are said to be dismayed at FIFA's decision.The anti-racism campaign group Kick It Out said the punishment was "simply not good enough".

The racism that went on during the match(and it also took place during the under-21 match)made me sick to my stomach.The morons that engaged in it will not be deterred from doing it in future by this pathetic and paltry fine.The Spanish FA should have at least been forced to play some matches behind closed doors.
It seems to me the governing body of football doesn't have any balls!
