Yes, I suppose you could be accused of "being on yer jollies" at the country's expense...

I'll stop doffcocking now.

One assumes cost is a factor. There's no longer a financial benefit to the national team for them to stay. While I suppose an individual player could opt to fly home later on his own, it's probably better to take the flight your team's on and head home to see family.


After all, flights aren't getting any cheaper, and a lot of these footballers really have to count the pennies these days.

Italy is to become the home of the world's largest maze.

It is the creation of Franco Maria Ricci, the publisher who amongst the books is Codex Seraphinianus, a book written in a code by Luigi Serafini which so far no-one has been able to crack.

It is built in Fontanellato near Parma, is reported to be seven hectares in area, and made out of bamboo hedges.
