Just comparing the images of Anne, Princess Royal, greeting the England & Scotland teams at Murrayfield right now, and to the great sound of bagpipes ... with the unwelcome reception that seems to await Felipe VI in Barcelona tomorrow. Well, I guess there is no comparison.

The report includes the fact that she will attend the opening dinner to show, in her own words, "institutional support" for the MWC. That makes sense to me - as the city does not want to show discourtesy to the MWC itself. To snub Felipe's official reception, however, is correct.

It looks like the FA’s sanctioning of Pep Guardiola might backfire. Many fans posting that they’ll be wearing something yellow in support of him at Sunday’s cup final. Good for them.

The yellow ribbon that Pep wears (and as says, he's worn it all season) is in protest at 4 political prisoners in Spain, held without trial. 3 are now represented by Human Rights QC who is appealing to the UN for their release:

It’s worse, . They’re charging Guardiola not for his support of Catalonia, but for wearing a yellow ribbon against political prisoners in Spain, still without any trial, & who shouldn’t have been jailed in the first place

If you ban a vote, more people will want to vote. Censor a book, more people will want to read it. Ban music, more people will want to listen to it. Ban art, it will sell more. Ban a yellow ribbon, everyone will ask why, and then they’ll also wear yellow. Well done fans.

Talking of yellow. I wore a yellow clothes peg on in Nov as I believe the imprisonment of the politicians & civic leaders without trial was (and still is) heavy-handed, unnecessary & unjust. It's a non-political opinion - even though they ARE political prisoners.

It has been correctly reported by . I believe Sky has been excellent in its coverage of the Catalan issue. I guess this was merely a slip up on news desk. I agree with you, Roger that there might be more to this behind the scenes.

I actually have a number of Spanish friends who've always pronounced the FA Cup to me as the fuck up. I've always loved that ...
