Red Foxy on why Labour may finally bring football home

Yep, they don’t call me Red Foxy for nothing, you know – I nailed my colours to the mast years ago – and now I am happy to nail up a few Tory “big beasts”.

The advertising and marketing industry seems pretty chuffed, too, with what Sir Keir Starmer hails as a new “sunlight of hope” following the Labour landslide.

Anyway, never mind the economy, their first priority has got to be the weather. Let’s face it, that really does need to CHANGE.

Naturally, some are using the result for a shameless plug, with the London Medical Laboratory top of the list, insisting that Labour has many encouraging ideas for local health reform.

Dr Avinash Hari Narayanan (MBChB) chipped in: “We agree entirely with Labour’s policy to ‘shift our NHS away from a model geared towards late diagnosis and treatment, to a model where more services are delivered in local communities’. It’s a cliché, but it’s true that prevention is better than cure.”

But never ones to be shy in coming forward, Narayanan’s mob added: “Identifying conditions at as an early a stage as possible is often vital in ensuring a successful outcome. The wider use of measures such as blood tests can help identify issues before symptoms even show.”

And here comes the punchline: “For anyone concerned about easy access to healthcare, it’s useful to know that revolutionary new blood tests introduced in the last few years mean people have swift access to a vast array of information about their own health through a simple finger-prick test, which can even be taken in their own home.

“For example, London Medical Laboratory’s General Health Profile blood test monitors seven key areas of health. It can be taken at home through the post, or at one of the many drop-in clinics that offer these tests across London and nationwide in over 120 selected pharmacies and health stores.” Disgraceful.

Still, at least there is “sunlight of hope” for the England football team. After all, our only World Cup win came just a few months after the 1966 general election, when, yes, you guessed it, Harold Wilson led the Labour Party to a landslide victory.

Basically, England only ever win major tournaments when Labour is in power and with a portent like that, surely, football’s coming home now…

All Southgate needs to do is get shot of some of the “big beasts” which have underperformed over the past few weeks. Now, I’m no expert but Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane just seem to get in the way of each other, despite scoring all four of England’s goals, while both full-backs just run up the pitch and then pass the ball back. In fact, only Cole Palmer has actually rescued our boys from hours and hours of dreary football.

So, sort it out Gareth, then maybe, just maybe, we can give the rest of the Euro 2024 finalists “one helluva beating”…
