    And many others not coming out too well in this. Whilst the causes of gay rights and women’s equality are absolutely needed and wanted, this just shows that the message from the top is often only espoused as long as it suits and maintains the careers of the rich and famous.

    And to those who might choose not to read the article because it is in the Dail Mail, you are also guilty of two faced virtue signalling.

      I would suggest that your posting of this article and subsequent accusations will hold the lions share of any virtue signalling associated with this thread.

      I would only be guilty of virtue signalling if I told you that I wasn't going to read the article because it is in the Daily Mail.

      I didn't so I'm not.

      (yes, yes I know I did - but to be honest I didn't not read it because it is in the Daily Mail, more because I predict that it will be a load of virtue signalling bollocks that turns to dust under the slightest examination).

      Not being someone who reads the Daily Mail (I was overcome with curiosity) I wonder if our OP could post the links to the quality journalism of the paper as it exposes the problems associated with Qatar mentioned in this article. I assume that as they are criticising others for their lack of action on this matter they must have done a whole lot of great work in drawing attention to these problems and driving change. I looked with interest to see if the Daily Mail themselves were going to boycott the competition and not report on the games, however, I must have missed this part (quite possible as I only skimmed the article as it appears to be of very low value).

      I would also ask for the link that shows the paper apologising for their own counts of misogyny, homophobia and racism over the years.

      Once I have these links then perhaps I can stop laughing, address the shocking virtue signalling in this article and suggest that they concentrate their campaign on the FA rather than their employee and presenters whose job it is to present their games. Personally, I am right behind any plan that suggests to the FA that they boycott the Qatar world cup.

      Infact I will go further. All the time the Daily Mail boycott the world cup by not reporting on it, I will follow their lead and boycott it too. Who is with me?

      well , we've just witnessed the sale of a premier league club to an entity that has undeniable ties to the establishment of a nation that has an appalling human rights record and where women were only allowed to start driving a few years ago .....so clearly the cap only fits on the correct head as long as that head is suitably financed.

      A few years ago my brother's best mate died in an accident, or more correctly was killed because a business was negligent. The way the Daily Mail wrote the story though you could think the fact he was gay and had a boyfriend was the most important thing in the whole incident. It's weirdly like they thought their readers would be more interested in speculating about a lifestyle than actually reading the facts of a tragic case. God forbid, before the inquiry established the facts, almost implying his lifestyle might have contributed. Didn't like them before but I must now for sure be a two faced virtue signaller because I find their small minded, divisive, hypocritical rubbish totally nauseating.

      more to the point what have the Daily Nail got to say on the matter , all these ex player pundits are a bit of a bore in my opinion and the question of wether they go to Qatar or not is easy answered ........just stay in England and provide the commentary from home , save your employers some coin , BUT i think we all know what will happen , they're not going to miss out on the jolly are they.....not in a million years , hypocrites the lot of them.

      Excellent. I needed to set my watch, and a shit thread appearing from wellquickwoody that gets comprehensively ridiculed in just a few posts, is one of the most reliable things you can set a timepiece by.
      SUCK IT UP ...YOU MONG .....NOT FAKIN' BOVERED ........ANY MORE ... keep ignoring the context , going for the easy win ....you are a top class **** mate ....and that is it from moi....du bist blokken... ****in bell end..........enjoy spending yer pension ......and you know you won't ........i hope you are some sort of anarchist ...if you aint then you are ****ed....but u probably are anyway.....

      it sells papers and gets clicks unfortunately......a symptom of the world we live in today , when you have shows like squid game being the most watched show on netflix you know we are in a spot of bother.

      Oh good. A thread full of people from Australia telling people in England what to think.

      As expected the article is typical Hate Mail. Dog whistle whataboutery. Could have been written by cunning fergus while consuming his morning coffee and looking for a scrap.
      There's a Star Man, playing on our right. His name is Tariq Lamptey and he's ****ing dynamite.
