International relations all ale and hearty - part 2

Spitfire ale continues with the campaign that laughs at foreigners. The strategy is childish yet funny, and reminds us that for some people, especially Johnny Foreigner, the World Cup is taken as seriously as war, with the plucky Brits (i.e. English - the Scots don't count and the Welsh are never in it anyway) having to cope with devious Nazi-harbouring Argies, surrender-prone Italians and those pesky Yanks nicking their women.
The cartoon strips are by Graham Dury, whose distinctive style is familiar to readers of the un-PC Viz comic.
