The wisdom of the lynch mob
Brian Reade in the Daily Mirror:
"I've been meaning to do a piece for a while asking why so many England fans have developed a pathological hatred for Frank Lampard. It was going to be along the lines, "He is a good footballer who works hard, scores, creates and isn't actually fat. So why the lynch mob?"
Until I read the former public schoolboy saying this: "I am a Tory and I really like David Cameron."
And I realised how much we tend to underestimate the intelligence of the lynch mob."
