THERE ARE no more excuses not to accelerate women’s football in England.
There is no lack of interest. Check out the crowds and TV characters for the lionesses.
But everything starts in the schools.
At least a third still urge girls to play netball or hockey while boys play soccer. Why? All girls should be given an equal opportunity at the Beautiful Game – at school or in a local club.
In the meantime, our big teams at the top must not hesitate to move women’s games to their stadiums with crowds now soaring.
As schools step up their game and broadcasters and clubs keep investing, even greater success will follow. . . and nothing inspires like that.
Congratulations again to the Lionesses.
You have conquered Europe. Now for the world.
Lord we go
WE hate to think of our German friends as bad losers. But the evidence is mounting.
They say the English bang on about 1966. But for 56 years they haven’t stopped whining about our third goal of the day – even though we got a fourth.
Now the press reckon VAR cost them a penalty on Sunday. Will they still complain about it in 2078?
The Germans should have a descriptive word for all eventualities.
Everything, it seems, except “Germany will be beaten fairly and honestly”.
War on ‘Blob’
LIZ Truss’ war on Whitehall waste will be music to our readers’ ears.
Delivering it can be like climbing Everest barefoot.
We are all for removing the incredible 326 diversity officers in government and ending the scandal of taxpayers funding union officials to organize strikes.
Plus her broader pledge to “tackle left-wing groupthink in government. . . and ensure that officials are focused on delivering public services on the front lines.”
But the Tory-hating civil service ‘blob’ will already be giggling. She has rejected Boris and is seeking a Labor government.
Good luck to Liz when she comes to power.
But such a revolution looks much more difficult than it might think.
HOW long can Keir Starmer pretend to lead Labor if his front benchers defie his orders not to join the picket line?
He spoke harshly about distancing the party from strikers.
The moment the unions threatened to cut his funding, he capitulated and even allowed older colleagues to demonstrate with their “comrades”.
Starmer is a pitiful, confused figure.
With every issue – strikes, women’s identity, whatever – he can’t decide how to deal with it.
All he knows is that millions of voters abhor Labour’s toxic mix of 1970s class struggle union dogma and 21st century awakened extremism.
And he has no idea what to do about it.
