England are Cricket World Cup champions, after winning a phenomenal, mindbending match against New Zealand at Lord's this evening. It was a final to savour and one of those events that make us so thankful that sport exists, if only to forget about the madness in the world for however long a game will drag on for.
Unfortunately we barely had fifteen minutes to savour the spectacle before being thrust back into the mire of stupidity by an outrageous feat of trolling from wannabe 'Year of the Rabbit' extra and member of Parliament for North East Somerset Jacob Rees-Mogg, who tweeted the following:
As you may have learned by now, the captain of the England cricket team is from Rush, not to mention the New Zealand-born man of the match for England and the bowler from Barbados who bowled the final ball in England's triumph. Europe and the world beyond have been quite helpful for English cricket today.
Some spectacular insults were flung in JRM's direction after the tweet- cretinous shitgibbon, twonk, penciltwat, twat, thuddingly mediocre ghoul - almost enough insults to make us appreciate Twitter again.
Except for the Freedom of Movement and Common Travel Area as underpinned by the EU which gives your Irish captain the right to live work and travel in England.#CWC19Final

Our director of cricket until late last year was South african
Our current Coach is Australian
Our current captain is Irish
Our super over bowler is Barbadian
A celebration of inclusivity and this moron chooses now to demonstrate his introverted bias.

Anyway, congratulations to England. It's pity your country is run by shitgibbons. At least you have cricket.
