The Truth about Goats
The Labour Party has found itself mired in further controversy as the Watford mascot resigned, amid accusations that he might have done something to offend Margaret Hodge. For some ‘Harry’ was loveable symbol of football frolics, but to others he was a neo-Nazi sympathizer – it all depends if you’ve been drinking the same drink as Dan Hodges.
In 2016 Harry was strongly criticised for diving alongside Wilfried Zaha, in attempt to highlight the plight of the Palestinian people and the need for VAR. Although the Football Association decided not to take disciplinary action, Rabbi Sacks wrote a strongly worded editorial about Harry’s crimes against humanity and why Margaret Thatcher is better than Troy Deeney.
Jeremy Corbyn has been criticised for failing to condemn the Hornet; although a spokesman asked: ‘Whose Harry the Hornet?’. Meantime, in other news, the UK’s MEPs voted in support of Hungary’s right-wing anti-immigrant Prime Minister, Viktor Orban – but he never played for Watford, so who cares?
