An Aberdeen shop owner has caught the eye of the local police, according to the Daily Record. His crime? Selling World Cup T-shirts with "Anyone But England" on the front.
The offending items of clothing could apparently spark racial conflict, Slanj of Scotland was told.
T-shirts reading “Algeria, USA and Slovenia Supporters Club” were also highlighted, the police insisting they had to warn Slanj “of the potential for disturbance such a window display could cause”.
Here’s the full report and comments from readers. At least they seem to have a sense of humour.
Incidentally, Metro and the BBC picked up on the same story, adding an interesting detail: no member of the public complained. The warning was given by a PC “acting on his own initiative.”
I also commend the sub-editor of one “related story” on the Daily Record page. “England replace love cheat captain John Terry with drug test dodger Rio Ferdinand” sums up the futility of looking for a squeaky clean England captain in a mere 13 words.
