You may have seen John Oliver’s rant aimed at FIFA and the corruption within the organisation last year, right before the 2014 World Cup. As FIFA were in the headlines for the majority of last week and will probably be in the headlines for the foreseeable future, John Oliver decided to cover the issues again.
In his typically satirical fashion, he covers the arrest of high-ranking FIFA officials, Blatter’s re-election, the Jack Warner onion debacle, and explains who really has the power to get rid of Blatter. As well as being hilariously insightful, it is also pretty informative.
It is clear who really has the power to put an end to the corruption within FIFA, and cut the head of the snake as it were. Surely, they should be doing more?
Some artists online think so, and have created anti-logos urging sponsors to withdraw from the Qatar 2022 World Cup – which is on course to cost the lives of at least 4,000 migrant workers before a ball is kicked.
