The FIFA World Cup isn’t feeding the poor

 

This is another brilliant video from the new expert ranter John Oliver. The comedic rant has been a favourite of mine for a while and John Oliver is not disappointing. This particular video lambasted FIFA and the Brazilian Government for hosting the World Cup in a country that by all definitions of the phrase can’t afford it.

We are talking about a country that hasn’t paid for its affordable housing scheme, a country that spent more than a billion dollars on a stadium to only be used 4 times and that after the World Cup will not be used at all.

Brazil is now the opposite of Australia. They are spending like crazy. The people in Brazil are rightfully mad. Imagine Tony Abbott announcing we aren’t getting medicare anymore because we are getting the Olympics? I bet we would be flipping trucks too.
