Boris Johnson announces online racists will be banned from football matches



Boris Johnson has announced that online racists will be banned from football matches in the wake of abuse aimed at England stars.


England trio, Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho, and Marcus Rashford were targeted with sickening racial abuse following Sunday's Euros final defeat after they missed penalty shootout against Italy at Wembley.


On Wednesday, the Prime Minister told MPs that the government is toughening up the football banning order regime as he clashed with Keir Starmer over his stance on the national team 'taking the knee' before matches.


“You will not be going to the match – no ifs, no buts,” the prime minister told abusive supporters, in the Commons, after pressure from Labour to adopt the move.


The commitment came as Mr. Johnson defended Priti Patel, his home secretary, for defending fans’ right to boo England players taking the knee at the start of matches.Latest Post Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
