Gordon Brown backs Show Racism the Red Card's World Cup Events
"Please accept my warmest congratulations to everyone involved in today's event. Show Racism the Red Card has demonstrated once again the power and reach of our national game to send out a clear and unequivocal message that racism will not be tolerated. I am very pleased to see the FA, the England team and 2018 Bid Team backing a campaign that shows the values we share as well as the strength of our bid, as we work together to bring the World Cup to England. And finally I would like to wish all the school children attending the event the very best of luck today. I am told there has been a huge array of impressive and highly creative entries - from short films to poetry and artwork - to convey the message that racism should be shown the red card. I hope you all have a fantastic day."
