A lot of hypocrisy is aired about 'English soccer hooligans', by lying politicians and mealy-mouthed media.
Should we expect anything other than hooliganism from young working class Englishmen?
They seem to have overwhelming reasons - being doomed to :-
1) longest working hours in Europe, doing boring inefficient work, for lower wages;
2) incompetent and corrupt managers and administrators;
3) pitifully low standards of education, unfairly allocated [so they can't analyse or even consider their situation];
4) oppressively high taxation - over-taxation of the working middle-class and the poor is kept secret by the British State, undiscussed by media which is disinclined to cover it, while the BBC is forbidden to cover it;
5) high prices, most visible when seeing low prices abroad;
6) high interest rates, fixed by corrupt 'civil servants' in league with elite usurers;
7) corrupt Laws,
8) corrupt policing;
9) corrupt judges;
10) corrupt courts;
11) corrupt politicians;
and of course, the frustration of not being allowed to know, much less discuss, any of these facts; because hypocrisy and secrecy are still generally the rule in the British media, including the state-influenced and elite-ruled BBC.

The working middle-class and the poor pay tax at the following rates
direct taxation - c. 50% (including cost of taxation)
indirect taxation - c. 50% VAT + costs
property taxation - (was) 87.5% Band A - but more than 1000% for the very poor;
but the rich and the political classes pay less than ZERO% net tax!

Proof: Gov't Lies Revealed
The owners of Britain (billionaires and above) actually take from the system - they are thieving from the uneducated and therefore unaware taxpayers] see "Cruel & Unjust Taxes"#ZERO
So - what d'you expect, from frustrated, ignorant, oppressed males when, going overseas, they become dimly aware of their pitiable condition?
