Race charity wants Newcastle fans to stop wearing ‘’culturally insensitive’’ head-dresses. Absurd. On that basis Saudi owners shouldn’t wear a shirt and tie
If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
My long-time chum Tony B has been boring the arse off me for decades about the joys of Newcastle and more particularly the city’s football club. I think he must have played every pass since winning the Inter-City Fares Cup in 1969. If he melted down the silverware since then he would be lucky to have enough for a Prince Albert. If you don’t know what that is Google it, this is a family column.
Now that his pride and joy is owned by a country he could not be happier. Alongside 99.9% of fans they could not care less about Saudi Arabia’s human rights record. In fact they are vaguely in favour of chopping off burglar’s hands and would like to see it introduced by Home Secretary Priti Patel.
At last they can see the sunlit uplands with the possibility of big names and big titles heading their way.

Being a fun-loving city they have started to wear tea-towel head-dresses as a tribute to their new owners. Plenty to smile about.
Until today. Along comes the race charity Kick It Out who don’t like the head-dresses saying they can be viewed as racist, offensive and culturally insensitive. How ridiculous.
On that basis we should be offended by Saudi businessmen wearing suits, shirts and ties.
I do hope the owners and fans tell Kick It Out to focus on the serious stuff and leave Newcastle alone.
