On the World Cup...

Here's a couple of pieces about the Women's World Cup which finished this week. To fill in the gaps, NZ lost to England in the final.

Here's two differing takes on the media coverage. Dominic Lawson - whose point could be summed up as, don't ask me to watch it,. Lawson wrote his article in response to the Minister for Sport [Andy Burnham] who argued that Women's sport is treated more or less as a sideshow and this needing to change.

I have to admit, my sympathy lies more with Burnham. There was a great deal of theatre throughout the cup (and I did enjoy the bits of it I heard).
