Following England's footballing defeat at the hands of Italy, a number of politicians and celebrities have jumped in saying that there is absolutely no need to abuse the players.
Despite having a track record of saying things that are off-colour, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, 'The racist abuse that our players are facing now is completely against everything that I currently hold to be true.'
A number of other celebrities have taken to writing on Twitter.
Although the word hypocrite has been used, we see no harm in politicians changing their minds about important issues like these.
We are, of course, lying.
