Week 20: Prat – Sepp Blatter

by Ray_North on May 18, 2014

prat_iconThis weeks Prat of the Week is the President of FIFA and good old fashioned Prat – Sepp Blatter.

I decided to carry out an piece of empirical research:
Sepp Blatter is the 78 year old President of FIFA, who has been involved as a technocrat with one of the most powerful international organisations for forty years; Declan North is a five year old boy with an interest in Rapunzel and the stories of Fireman Sam.

Sepp Blatter campaigned for and secured the World Cup for Qatar in 2022, and when asked if it would be too hot in the summer in Qatar to hold a football tournament, assured the world that it would be fine; Declan North campaigned for and secured extra sweets for him and his brothers last saturday, and when he was asked by me, Ray North if it was hot in the desert in the Summer, assured me that it was – ‘too hot to play football?’ I asked him, to which he gave me a look that said, of course it is, only a lunatic would organise a football match in the desert in the middle of their summer.

This week, Sepp Blatter finally accepted what everyone else in the whole universe released many years ago, that it would be too hot in Qatar in the Summer for the World Cup, and then added that he hadn’t realised that it was that hot in the Gulf.

What a Prat.

Stupidity, dementia or corruption?
