England’s armband protest was always a hollow gesture

Daily Mail says It was always a hollow gesture, an empty, elasticated symbol long after the opportunity for meaningful protest had passed. Even so, the FA are not the bad guys here. That would be FIFA, again.

Why always them? Their president, Gianni Infantino, bears a striking resemblance to Thunderbirds villain The Hood and, in Qatar, that similarity extends to the strings working him.

The reason the OneLove armbands have caused such controversy out here is that they imply tacit support for the gay community in a country where homosexuality is illegal. So what would not draw a sideways glance at home — a basic endorsement of tolerance — is seen as a challenge to the moral code of the hosts.
