The Derby – Enough is Enough

The Derby. The big one. The one we all look forward to. The one where the actual game has become a sideshow to the noise and vitriol surrounding it.

Racism, violence, homophobia, the dead mocked with actions, chants, flags, memorials defaced, murals vandalised … All of it indefensible.

There is no argument in it being ‘just a minority’. The minority is growing, we’ve crossed a line.

On Saturday, in response to the recent gun crime and tragic deaths of a nine-year-old girl and others, a banner was unfurled at Goodison Park that read ‘Enough is Enough. Our City in Unity’.

Here’s something else we need to be unified on: calling a stop to this idiocy. Enough is enough.
