American attempts to divine political lesson from the Ashes

by Leveret

See Cricket and Political Correctness in the AmSpec blog.

I’m not persuaded by the probative value of this little parable actually – it’s pretty weak and the connexion between the Ashes and the author’s thesis is pretty weak.

And, as one commenter pointed out, 10 of the 11 players in the 2005 England team went to state schools.

NEVERTHELESS this is worth reading because it is always so fascinating to see Americans try to explain cricket.
