Borris Johnson has said “Should evidence emerge that shows state responsibility, then Her Majesty’s government will respond appropriately and robustly,” he added "I think it will be difficult to see how UK representation at the World Cup can go ahead in the normal way.”

Borris would have been a great headline writer fr the Skibbereen eagle Eagle in its day.

Borris is a bit of a toothless tiger and the Uk has no real power to upset the Russians.

Would a UK boycott of the world cup do any good? I cant see anyone in England supporting such a move, more bluster from Borris.

I read it as more no politicians or royals would go over. Snub the event diplomatically

Of course England has massive power over the Russians... where do you think all those expensive houses and apartments in London were purchased from?

Simply repatriate the property..;)

Boris Johnson should just watch his words. The Russians have a whole file on Sh*t-for-Brains.

Boris Johnson is not in a position to prevent the England team going to the World Cup.

the teams from Spain/Germany/Brazil/Argentina must be sh....tting themselves about whether the lazy part-timers that is England will be present.

They would hardly be missed the way the Italians would be even if they did decide not to go anyway Johnson is talking out of his arse so its irrelevant anyway.

So did the English poison this fellow just so they would have an excuse to boycott the World Cup?

That's just B.J. - The Village Imbecile, Spouting shyte as usual.
Engerland will be at The World Cup in Russia, though given what happened with The Russian Hooligans and mostly Ordinary English Fans, at The Euros in France, The Russian Organizers would probably prefer if they weren't there!
