    I totally believe that this would be the right decision. We can’t allow a country which doesn’t respect basic international law and is so homophobic present the World Cup. There is no integrity, I am happy to join this campaign and will be happy to join the campaign and not watch any games in the World Cup if Russia continues to have little respect for civil liberties and basic human rights.
