The Hooligan League

Extraordinary report in The Times about how Polish hooligans are planning a hooligan league, which will be 'won' by the most violent nation. As the piece reports, Poland's finest are looking forward most of all to a showdown with England's thugs, because of their international reputation as the 'best of the worst'. Sniff, makes ya proud, doesn't it?

Poland is apparently a very right-wing place at the moment (Polish Bratwurst readers, is this true?) and I've read several articles on how its violent football fans are intent on causing mayhem in Germany. Worrying stuff – look on the bright side, though: at least this is one competition we have a good chance of winning.
