David Runciman: The Last World Cup "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The evidence for the premise that international sport spreads peace and goodwill has always been fairly thin: every major tournament is dressed up that way but the legacy is more often mothballed stadiums and simmering resentment, as was the case after South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014. Rarely, though, has a regime so brazenly signalled its indifference to the niceties of international sport, which require at least the pretence that bad behaviour gets put on hold. As the saying goes, hypocrisy is the tribute that vice pays to virtue, and this is the currency in which Fifa likes to trade. But Putin isnt having any of it. He seems to have treated the award of the tournament as a licence to try his luck.

Rosemary Hill: Unhappy Ever After "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A marriage that makes a good end to a comedy will often make as good a beginning to a tragedy. If any couple bore out that maxim it was Annabella Milbanke and George Gordon Byron. The happy chapter lasted barely 24 hours, the ever after is with us still.
