Leave Sport Alone

Richard Caborn is calling for the Jermaine Defoe "bite" to be investigated (see BBC here). For those of you who didn't see it, the Tottenham striker took a nip at West Ham's Javier Mascherano. It wasn't a terrible incident and certainly wasn't the Eric Cantona two-footed kick into the crowd. The Football Association is likely to deal with it based on their own established processes and rules, however, Caborn feels the need to interfere. Why is this something that a Cabinet Minister feels that they need to comment on? Government has no role to play in this.
