When Cellino hired Hockaday you were silent – Leeds fans react hilariously as Labour MP slams Radz
The Leeds summer tour to Myanmar has caused a huge amount of controversy, among fans, but in the wider political world as well.
Amnesty International issued a press release and a Labour MP, Dr Rosena Allin-Khan wrote a letter to Andrea Radrizzani expressing her disappointment.
Prefacing the letter, she said: “No club or organisation should promote a country which carries out state sponsored mass murder. They must rethink it, history will judge them to be on the wrong side of this.”
She sent the letter on her official Twitter account on Tuesday.
I’ve written to @LUFC expressing my anger at their decision to hold a post-season tour in Myanmar.

Strong words and a lot of the sentiment echoed what the majority of the fans had been saying all day.
However, some Leeds fans didn’t take kindly to a Labour MP getting involved, scoring political points from a sporting occasion.

Good point. However i believe if we play 2 up top, we have a great chance of two wins from two. You just have to be positive #lufc

But when Cellino appointed Hockaday, you were silent.
Get your priorities sorted.#lufc
