FOLLOWING on from that FRANCOIS HOLLANDE IS A GOONER post, the worlds of politics and football collided again on Friday when Labour’s Camden Town by-election winner Lazzaro Pietragnoli met Conservative councillor Giovanni Spinella at the Alexandra Palace count. Both Italian, the pair both follow the fortunes of Juventus. “We high-fived when Lazzaro told me that the only Italian team anybody could support was Juve,” Gio tells me. “I think it left people a bit confused given we were from opposing parties at an election count.” Juventus won the championship in Italy over the weekend.
To guard against this Italian takeover in Camden, here is a video of Arsenal scoring against Juventus.
