MPs call for Newcastle United to be nationalised

A group of North East MPs has called for the Government to nationalise struggling Premier League team Newcastle United. ‘It’s not about money’ said their spokesman. ‘Just like the banks, it’s all about confidence, and that’s what our lads lack at the moment – well, that and goals, obviously. This football club is more important to the country than all those dodgy banks and certainly too important to be relegated, especially when you think of all the famous names associated with it, like Jackie Milburn, Kevin Keegan and er …Tony Blair?’
