Human rights group, Amnesty International, have called for an urgent enquiry into the behaviour of stewards at last night’s London soccer derby between Crystal Palace and Arsenal following reports that they allegedly manhandled a number of Arsenal fans and prevented them leaving the ground at half-time as their team were being humiliated 3-0 by their South London rivals.
A spokesman for Amnesty told us: “I’ve witnessed some terrible human rights abuses in my time, but nothing compares to this.
“It was an act of sheer barbarism to make those poor devils sit through another 45 minutes of watching their team play like a bunch of mincing tarts.
“I certainly think there’s a case for this one to be brought before The Court of Human Rights”
Beleaguered Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, told a press conference last night. “It sounds like the stewards were far too heavy-handed in their dealings with our supporters, although, personally, I didn’t see the incident as I fucked off home after 15 minutes”
