England vs Scotland? You must be mad!

The Scotland Secretary Jim Murphy has proposed a football match between England and Scotland. I think this is far from being a good idea. In fact, I think it's awful. It's not the football I am worried about. It's the fans and all this policing I am worried about.

Take one ordinary Scottish football fan, let's say Kenny MacAskill, as an example. He's more famous for being the Scottish Justice Secretary than being your average football fan. From what I have read, he was once arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly before a football match between England and Scotland at Wembley. He was never charged of course, otherwise he would never become the Scottish Justice Secretary as we know it now.

So, OK, I have nothing against Scotland and I like Scotland, but do you really want to see fans like the one in the example above clashing with the police and each other? The NHS will be in absolute meltdown.

Anyway, hey, I would actually like to watch a game of football between England and Scotland myself, but not with some violent football fans!

So what do you think? Is a football match between England and Scotland a 'Culture Exchange' or is it a mad idea and a recipe for disaster?
