Keep Vuvuzelas Away From the Match

FIFA allowed the vuvuzelas the World Cup after organisers did tests at a match at Johannesburg's 95,000-seater Soccer City after concerns that they could drown out emergency announcements.
Ignoring this, as is the want of a politician who hasn’t been in the news for a while, Lothians MSP Margo MacDonald has called for vuvuzelas to be banned at Scottish football grounds saying that safety announcements could be drowned out.
Big Grumpy, a Hibernian season ticket holder, also went on to moan that the vuvuzelas were "ruining" the World Cup.
She said: “There is no intention on my part to limit the enjoyment of fans.”
Quite right.
That’s the job of Hibernian.
