The Gazza Strip.

Apparently Twitter users have been confusing the drunkard former England footballer Paul “Gazza” Gascoigne with Gaza the place.

Maybe it is just me and I, like Gazza am from Gateshead, not Gaza but this tickles me.

Fans of former England footballer Paul Gascoigne, popularly known as ‘Gazza’, were left confused and fearing for his future as a Free Gaza campaign took off online.

Tweets with the hashtag #freegaza have been trending on Twitter in response to the violence in the Middle East, with users using their posts to urge Israeli forces to stop their assault on the Gaza Strip. The conflict, which started on July 8, has led to the deaths of more than 1,200 people.

But followers of the troubled player, who has become known for his battles with alcohol and drugs, mistakenly thought that he had been arrested and that the campaign was in support of his freedom.


Pignorance has no end.

    Poor old Gazza. His little grey cell doesn’t know whether it is standing up or lying down these days,does it?

    I am informed that City Road in Cardiff, a very long road that used to be the haunt of Arthur Daley’s in sheepskin coats flogging dodgy motors in my youth, but is now wall to wall takeaway’s, bars and restaurants, is currently dubbed the Gaza Strip.
