Marina Hyde for The Guardian:
Since then, Fifa’s ethics committee has published its summary of Fifa ethics committee member Michael Garcia’s investigation into allegations of unethical behaviour within Fifa. Mr Garcia has taken the post-satirical step of disowning this report into his own investigation. Two whistleblowers have lodged complaints – with Fifa – about their treatment at the hands of Fifa investigators. Fifa has made an opaque criminal complaint to the Swiss attorney general, which, on past form, will probably end up being about England. And the Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has sent a letter to all exco members which contains the line: “We cannot go on like this.”
I know what you mean, Greg. But can’t we? Let’s face it, experience would indicate overwhelmingly that we can. Going on like this is what we do. Without wishing to put a precise date on it, we’ve been going on like this since at least the second Wilson administration.
