    I can't see it happening, and equally, I can't see it having the desired impact even if it does. Yes, making money etc is likely of importance to him, but if only we are boycotting it, I don't think it will have significant enough impact to be cared about particularly.

    No ****ing way.

    Firstly, it's a childish response from a country that only last week saw fit to renew arms deals with another misanthropic murderous warmongering regime.

    Secondly, do you think Putin and his mates give a toss about a relatively irrelevant presence? One semi-final since 1966.

    I say this as someone who will support the England team during the tournament no matter what.

    He would if EU countries followed suit.

    I mean really? Surely we can do better.
    I would like to know a little more about the spy story first. It may be true, it may be false. So much of what you see on the news is totally contrived by the powers that be.

    Threatening a boycott then never doing it is an appropriate British response.
