The Political Party

Show 234 - England with Toby Perkins

from The Political Party | Published 7/14/2021

Trying to make sense of everything on and off the pitch, Matt is joined by the Shadow Minister for Further Education and Skills - and massive football fan - Toby Perkins. The positivity about a wonderful tournament for England and the stand that they took against racism has been tainted by the violence and racism of a hardcore minority. How can football fully rid of itself of its violent and regressive elements? Is this just an England problem?    Warning: contains the emotional and incoherent ramblings of a football fan trying to come to terms with it all.    Follow Toby on Twitter: @tobyperkinsmp   Subscribe to Matt's other podcast British Scandal here or wherever you get your podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/british-scandal/id1563775446   Email the show: [email protected]   Order Matt's book 'Politically Homeless' here: https://blackwells.co.uk/bookshop/product/2100000262618   Follow Matt on Twitter: @mattforde   Follow Matt on WTSocial: https://wt.social/u/matt-forde   For the latest UK Government advice on coronavirus go to: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
