A Hero For Our Times
Walking along The Strand, I notice a Dad and his two kids ahead of me. Dad is dressed in casual England style teeshirt. The two teenagers are wearing England football shirts.
The girl has blonde hair in a pony-tail. She has the word "Beckham" on her back.
The boy is turned towards his father. I see sticky-out teeth and a gormless expression. He is lanky with short fair hair.
Come on. Turn, you bugger. You've got to be.
