Sport England budget for 2014-15………..£323 millions
I have often written about the true lunacies of those who take part in, or follow, sporting activities. Don’t get me wrong, sport can be an admirable activity, giving great personal satisfaction to both participant and enthusiastic fan; but we often see or read of the problems when sporting stars or the officials running those sports are exposed as being cheats, criminals or both.
But I reckon the latest story about a particular activity sets some sort of seal on the highest mark of barefaced-brazenness ever reported. It seems as though a bunch of enthusiasts is taking Sport England to court because they want the regulator to adjust matters to allow Bridge to be named or accepted as a Sport.
