Cheap jibes at Premier League clubs are a bit rich from pompous MPs... they completely fail to understand the business of football

Primark, The Ritz, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, the Brexit Party, JD Wetherspoon, Harrods, Qatar Airways, Whitbread, Tui, the British National Party, these were just some of the businesses that benefited from Government furlough schemes during Covid.

Some of the richest men in the world caught a break, too: Jim Ratcliffe, Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, Len Blavatnik, Teddy Sagi, Julian Dunkerton, Mohamed Al Fayed, Evgeny Lebedev, Lord Ashcroft, Philip Green, Guy Hands, millionaires, and some billionaires, whose companies made use of furlough.
