Some good news on this wet-and-windy Wednesday: virus-with-shoes Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon (aka Tommy Robinson, just one of the pseudonyms he hides behind) will not be allowed to attend any football match, home or abroad, for four years after receiving a banning order for punching an England fan in 2019.

Bedfordshire Police (Yaxley-Lennon is from Luton) had applied for a banning order after the incident, which happened before England’s Nations League match against the Netherlands, which took place in the Portuguese city of Guimaraes last June.

A court granted the order banning Yaxley-Lennon from “all regulated football matches, home and abroad” for four years. As a result, he will miss the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as well as the next two Euros. He was also ordered to pay £3,600 in court costs.

    This is what you call “news”, is it?! Do you have any evidence whatsoever that he wanted to or planned to attend any football games?!? Or is that one of those pesky details that takes away from the headline?
