However I can now reveal that he is not England's malign mascot. Instead I must reveal the true culprit. Step forward Mr Chris Heaton-Harris the Conservative MEP for the East Midlands and PPC for the safe Tory seat of Daventry. I am reliably informed that this paragon has never seen England win, and was ensconced in his seat at Wembley sapping the will from the players with his mere attendance.
Chris, burn your season ticket, reject corporate hospitality, give yourself a red card. You know it makes sense, your sacrifice will be rewarded in heaven.
