For the football, er, Trotsky fan in your life…

Well for those of you not shopping at the Gap because of its participation in the war on Christmas (just kidding), here’s an idea.  
 
The quoation is slightly doctored (boxing is mentioned before football), but it’s still good; viewed ironically of course. Trotskyism is long behind me.

The revolution will inevitably awaken in the British working class the deepest passions which have been diverted along artificial channels with the aid of football.”

Leon Trotsky

 Every team needs a fourth international, though expect plenty of red cards for dissent. The quote is genuine, taken from Trotsky’s 1925 Where is Britain Going? the original can be found here though his prediction of an impending British revolution hasn’t proved exactly prescient! Available in sizes small (36inch chest/90cms), medium (40inch/100cms), large (44inch/110cms), x-large (48inch/120cms) and xx-large (52inch/130cms).

    But I would say that, wouldn’t I?

    No, just that Bordiga one they produced in 2003. Sold like hot cakes. You might find it on eBay.
