Tim Lamb, the Chief Executive of the EWCB, said yesterday that sport, sadly, is once again being used as a political tool to fill a policy vacuum that seemingly exists. The issue, however, is rather different. Why did the World Cup organisers ever include Zimbabwe in its venues for this event and why did the EWCB not see the looming problems before it signed the lucrative TV and other contracts which were the principal motivating force behind yesterday's decision? The British government has rightly refused to ban the visit - imagine the fuss if it tried to do so - but it gave advice to the Board last summer that its preference was against the game taking place.
