When I went to the shop last week the dirty grey bits of concrete looked like they had been acid jet washed rather than cladding - although I could be wrong

The Rwandan genocide was 25 years ago and is totally different to many of the other examples you've cited.

In what sense different Ger, as in significantly worse? 25yrs ago but absolutely current very very difficult repercussions, which are not all hidden from the public eye.

My point was not about Rwanda exactly or specific atrocities but more the fact that a Premiership football team is sponsored by a country that once implemented Genocide on some of its population.

Although it is reverse advertising the Paddy Power push at the moment (mainly to get rid of all the OTHER betting sponsors) has some merit if it does actually get far east betting sites removed.

I long for the days of honest sponsors like

Photocopiers
Yoghurt suppliers
Beer providers

We should be sponsored by Cadbury. Absolutely massive company worldwide. Get it done Wes/Nassef.

I don't really see how breweries are much more reputable than bookies if we are talking about acceptable shirt sponsors.

For the people that actually work there it's probably best we leave Cadbury well alone.

Then I suppose no Yoghurt  for the lactose intolerant :)
