"but at least a few hundred thousand have read at least some of my verses"

..and looking at populist social media, we can guess the likely demographic of your readers...???

Nowt so wrong with friedly national rivalry when it comes to sport,
like for instance a rugby world cup,

But so much is suspect about nationalist internet 'influencers'
and their followers,
when international sporting events are abused as a vehicle for spreading dodgy propaganda...

(PFR)...I wish it was a few hundred million, but at least a few hundred thousand have read at least some of my verses - not too bad for a part-time amateur; and I keep trying because I think my way IS the best way forward for humanity, and certainly not the bonkers utopia of a crackpot!!

would lead to severe restictions on activities and folks

Now if only I could convince our government to build the necessary internment and re-education camps...

.. then the anti social git will think twice about letting his dog crap outside our back gate...

Walkie, do your ideas also extend to uniformed snatch squads bundling undesirable folks
into the back of vans,
never for them to be heard of again...???

Having the United Nations make all economic/CAPITALIST immigration illegal would also be "nice" for humanity, Steve; it's our world/our UN that should be multicultural - NOT each nation NOT England - i.e., "Nationalism Without Conquest" and Liverpool F.C. with Scousers and England National Rugby Union Team with English.

Walkie - I actually agree that there are not sufficient English born footballers being nurtured
to premier league and world level...

Same applies, perhaps to a lesser extent, to Rugby [this thread's topic btw..]

But it's the 'keep foreigners out' strand of your 'beliefs'
that is a boring imposition on the threads you pick on contributing to,
That is what I'll pull you up on in as good humoured and amicable a way as I can...

I imagine the main thing Eddie Jones cares about after losing the #rugbyworldcup2019 is his market value going down a bit; &, if Alf Ramsey came out of the grave, he'd probably paraphrase Enoch Powell & say modern English have gone mad with such mercenaries.

I hope Eddie Jones now gets his old job back as coach/manager of Japan and continues coaching Japanese youth, as he has been doing as an aside through the tournament.

As a rugby non-aficionado, though a footie tribalist par excellence, I'm a bit split. A victory for SA would be great for that country. A victory for us might help Boris...

But my tribalistic instincts must prevail. So come on, lads. I'll be listening to Radio 3 this morning, as there's no point watching a game in which I won't have a clue what's going on. And there's Villa and Liverpool later...

I don't like mercenary sportspeople - be they coaches/managers or players - nor the cowards who employ &/or support them; thus, I admired Eddie Jones (with a Japanese wife & parent) when he coached Japan NOT England.

And, if the coach/manager is not important to the COMPETITION, why foreign coaches/managers?!

2 hours till kick off. Too early for the Earwig song? You know the one - "Earwig-o! Earwig-o! Earwig-o!"

P.S. Japan actually play in SH rugby's second tier comp (along with Canada & the US, plus the 3 PI teams). What I'm really hoping for from this RWC (apart from an England win!) is that Japan & Fiji get invited to join the SH T1 competition (Japan is surely a commercial no-brainer, Fiji not so viable) with a promotion / relegation spot to encourage the T2 nations. And that would also make space for Uruguay & Namibia in the T2 comp (since Argentina & SA are already in the T1, this seems the natural fit), who are the only T2 nations without regular competitive rugby. The only thing then required is a play-off match between the 6N wooden spoon & the top NH T2 side (Georgia, usually) but I'm not holding my breath over that closed shop being slightly opened!
