    Infantino’s 100-day report card: a farcical FIFA fail

    By James Corbett 4 June 2016 In September 1997, when Britain was still intoxicated by the biggest general election landslide in the country’s history, the Labour Party spin doctor Derek Draper published a book, entitled ‘Blair’s 100 Days.’ A self-styled insider’s account, Draper’s book was supposed to capture the mood of elation and change after […]
