Manchester dis-United

If there was ever a case of dodgy dealings by legalised crooks then it must be happening at Manchester United. According to the BBC, the Glazers, the American family that technically owns the club, didn't end up responsible for the massive loans they took out to buy the club. No, they used a bit of creative accountancy to make the club liable for the debts. No wonder the fans want these light-fingered Floridians out of the way.

Not only has the club been saddled with a collossal debt, but the Glazers employ a "security firm" to stamp out resistance. One of the club's longest serving stewards got sacked for siding with the protesters. If this carries on much longer Malcolm Glazer might get the Mussolini treatment.
