A former MEP’s trolling of the Spanish football team was a spectacular own goal
Turns out Spain wasn’t the only team to end up on the losing side last night.
Former MEP Lord John Kilclooney – a cross bench peer from Northern Ireland – took it upon himself to troll the Spanish players before their Euros semi-final defeat against Italy.
And it’s fair to say it didn’t end well for him, it didn’t end well at all.
There's no words in the Spanish anthem. https://t.co/KFgwm3sLlj

Here’s what he had to say later in response to one of the several million people putting him straight.
I guessed that was the explanation. Never met a Spanish person before who was ‘tongue tied!’
