Sporting sanctions

I can see the argument for banning Zimbabwe from playing cricket here but on balance I think that the people of Zimbabwe are having such an awful time that to deny them the pleasure of watching their side play Test cricket is a shame. The message is, "Don't idle around watching cricket, get a move on with the revolution!" One would think that if the world were serious about imposing sanctions on the country, it would be banned from the Olympics but that won't happen as China supports Mugabe.

A good enough reason for everyone to abandon the olympics entirely.

I'm for banning the cricket but you make a good point, WW.
