Euro 2004

Asked again as to whether the Prime Minister was intending to watch England v France on Sunday, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that she hadn’t checked his diary. That said, the Prime Minister usually liked to watch games if he had the time. Asked if there was any St George’s “paraphernalia” in No 10, the PMS said that she hadn’t really noticed as she had obviously been very busy preparing for this afternoon’s challenging press briefing.

  1. Why didn’t the PMOS ask the stupid journalists whether they thought the PM had more important things to do than watching a game of football?

    Personally I’d much rather know that Tony spent those 90 minutes doing something useful to sort out the mess in Iraq, or improve the health service, or eductation funding or…..or….
