A politician may mention football in a scathing manner in a bid for popularity among the proles and electorate, but apparently a footballer may not mention a politician without risking suspension.

Yet when a freelance presenter makes a statement of personal opinion he is withdrawn from his popular role as presenter of Football Focus.

It is not simply hypocrisy, it is the very censorship the presenter was warning of.
Yes, lets make sure we are all in step with the goose step to oblivion.
