Today I got my regular email from the World Development Movement, with the title “Love Football Hate Poverty”. Since none of the UK countries qualified, they’ve got this great idea of encouraging people to cheer for countries based on those that are the most just: giving the most in aid, spending the most on childcare, and so on.

who should i cheer for euro 2008 button WDM ranks all the teams playing in Euro 2008 to find the most supportable – based on a whole load of facts and figures – the results might surprise you!…
Of course our supportability ranking isn’t an overall ranking of how ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we think any country is but it does throw up some suprises.

Despite trying to avoid football like the plague – rugby is clearly a superior sport!- I think this is a fantastic idea, and I’m gonna be cheering for teams like Switzerland who rank high up the list of just countries.

Wanna join me? Who are you supporting?
