Listening to Radio 1 at lunch I caught the news - first topic is the £100 million/£500,000 a week bid for some Brazillian footballer, second topic is that Honda will be shutting up shop for another couple of months in Swindon, potential job losses, loss of pay and so on due to lack of sales.
Is it just me that finds this all a bit offensive and maybe not the best timing? Whilst many are being made redundant (not at Honda (yet)), loosing homes and so on, Manchester United are making no bones about paying a whole heap of cash for some bloke to turn up and kick pigskin around.
I'm not sure if I should even find it offensive - what am I expecting Kaka to do, give the money to honda? Maybe if I liked football this wouldn't seem so bad?
