Default Premier League club appoints fascist

Sunderland AFC (a football club in the English top division) have just appointed a manager called Paolo di Canio.
In 2005 Paolo di Canio claimed to being a fascist, albeit not a racist.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/1506...-di-Canio.html

Former Foreign Secretary David Milliband, who is on the Sunderland board, resigned from the board in protest.


Meanwhile, di Canio refuses to deny he's a fascist.

So, an English club in the top division have chosen to have a fascist as its manager.

There is no law against that.

Indeed, there are laws in place to protect this fellow's freedom of conscience, freedom of expression, freedom of association and freedom of speech.

They've probably hired communists in the past, so what's the issue here?

Sunderland are now bottom of the English top division. So the fascist is doing very badly as a football manager.

Functionally impossible.

Sunderland have sacked the fascist Paolo di Canio now. This season (which started in August) has been a terrible season for Sunderland, and they are bottom of the Premier League.

Most fascists will deny that they are racists.
