What a surprise

Well there you go. Russia! We had a top bid and the final presentation was excellent. That’s not to say what I wrote earlier was any less true. But 2018 goes to Russia.

So what happened? An untransparent ballot and deals done in the background. Is that really what Word Cup bids have come to? What’s the point in a technical bid and final presentations since they make no difference. How are the fans going to manage in Russia? And I’m not even going to comment on the heat in Qatar.
