National news as heard through sleepy ears
The news headlines were burbling away as I came to this morning and I was surprised to hear the following:
“The Government is calling for radical reform of the way footballers run.”
‘Funny’, I thought, ‘that sounds a bit like a Monty Python sketch. And surely the Government has more important things to concern itself with than the fact that Mr Beckham runs like a girl? Or maybe I’ve been asleep for months and it’s actually April 1st. Hmmmm.’
Then, of course, I realised that the headline was actually about the Government wanting to reform the way football is run.
I prefer my version.
