Web ban on footie

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

A HO­TEL chain has cre­ated a link which blocks all men­tions of the World Cup on the in­ter­net.

The Google Chrome ex­ten­sion was cre­ated by Best Western af­ter a poll showed 84% of Brits did not care about the tour­na­ment.

And bosses at the chain urged any­one who re­ally wants to get away from the foot­ball to book a break in Scot­land.

A spokesman said: “Given that our friends north of the bor­der didn’t quite make the cut this year, Scot­land is the per­fect des­ti­na­tion for a foot­ball-free zone.

“And if Scot­land isn’t your thing, Wales and North­ern Ire­land didn’t make it this year ei­ther, and we’ve got ho­tels there too.”
