"Is it fair that English sports fans should get to see their national team free of charge and Scots should not"

"Erm, I don't know the answer to that.... Maybe that is an issue I can write to you on to give you the right government line.*"

Seriously??? Crouch was pretty much the only minister I had some respect for, but this really was atrocious.

* "I'm afraid we will need to consult with our friend Mr Murdoch as to whether he'd be ok with that first."

Surely not being able to watch their national team play is a good thing for most Scots!
If they had bothered to qualify for the Euros they could have watched for free and they will no doubt be able to see the WC qualifiers v. England.
