  1. All these losers driving their cars for Palestine (I guess the local environment isn’t high on their priorities) would be better engaged supporting the female pensioners… oops, I forgot, they don’t like old white people.

  2. An unmitigated pile of rubbish, a mixed bag of grifters and virtual signallers. Who cares about Gaza he only scored one decent goal.
