Tough competition

It's a challenge to find an entity more amoral and mercenary than the "realist" foreign policy types looking the other way as Syria and Yemen implode, but step forward the ruling elite at international sports organisations as Sepp Blatter demonstrates the gulf between public opinion and bureaucratic manoeuvering and the International Automobile Federation shamelessly reinstates the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Bahrain.  It might be time for the people who actually generate the cash upon which this parasite class lives -- the soccer players and the car drivers -- to make their views known.
