eligibility to play for England, 11/10/13

Interesting how Garth Crooks thinks Wilshere has no objections to someone representing England as long as he came "as a child-whose parents lived here, paid taxes". (England and the English", 11/10/13) Shouldn`t our national teams, in all sports, be made up of people who pay their full and proper share of taxes, not just have parents who do so? They all talk of how proud they are to represent their country, but if it doesn`t run to paying the correct tax so that it can actually be governed in a way that benefits the whole population, such pride is not worth a great deal. In fact, the same should apply to all who are appointed to represent this country, whether it be in politics, the judiciary, or the civil service!
