Reminder that former mayor John Tory's paramour just happened to snag a job organizing the event after she left City Hall.

She was already in that position when Tory was taking part in council votes on the FIFA event.

Don't believe Tory suffered any repercussions after the Toronto integrity commissioner's ruling, tho.

How many people does a country have to execute to be disqualified from hosting the World Cup?

How many journalists can it murder?

How many millions of people can be made second-class citizens by extreme discrimination?

Apparently, there is no limit:

@andrewstroehlein The start of this article from an Australian newspaper gives you an idea how corrupt is in bed with the operating

This is how the timeline went.

In the early hours of October 5, FIFA announced – out of the blue and a year before the deadline – that the 2030 men’s World Cup would be jointly hosted by six countries across three continents.

At the same time, president Gianni Infantino – also out of the blue and ahead of schedule – invited countries from the Asia and Oceania regions to submit bids for the 2034 tournament and gave them 25 days to decide.

Minutes later, the Saudi Arabian Football Federation’s LinkedIn page pinged with a ready-made statement confirming it would bid.

Minutes after that, the Asian Football Confederation president, Shaikh Salman bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa of Bahrain, said Saudi Arabia had Asia’s united backing.

Over the next few hours support streamed in from Frenchman Karim Benzema (Al-Ittihad’s new star), Italian Roberto Mancini (Saudi Arabia’s new national team coach), Englishman Steven Gerrard (Al-Ettifaq’s new manager) and his new player (and fellow Englishman) Jordan Henderson.

So we are just leaving all of that there, without comment or conspiracy theory.

Perhaps in the same way that FIFA announced the above without even holding a press conference to answer questions from the world about why it had completely changed the hosting format for 2030 without warning, and concurrently fast-tracked the 2034 bidding process, also without warning.
