Unpatriotic JVC and Comet
When David Beckham lifts the Euro 2004 trophy in Portugal in July England will witness the best party since, oohh, the Rugby World Cup final However not everyone will be wrapping themselves in the flag of St Georges and cracking open bottles of Newky Brown. For in addition to the few sourpuss Celts who automatically root for anyone England plays against, there could be a few glum faces at JVC and Comet too.
For the retailer is promising that should England life the trophy (current odds are about 7-1) it will give anyone who has bought a JVC camcorder their money back.
Can’t decide whether this is a nice touch or they are being rather unpatriotic in expecting England not to win the competition.
