Motion text

That this House, while welcoming the success of England's football team in the European 1996 Championships, deplores the jingoism and nationalism in the pages of sections of the tabloid press which does nothing to maintain the true spirit of sport, but is reminiscent of Hitler's use of sport to enhance his evel regime in the 1930s.
