'Fear where there should be none' Fern Britton weighs into Fifa armband row after U-turn
Fern Britton, 65, is one of many who have weighed in on the controversy about wearing the OneLove armband at the World Cup in Qatar.The accessory is a gesture of solidarity within the LGBT community, in a country where homosexuality is punishable.Same-sex sexual activity is prohibited under the Penal Code 2004, which criminalises acts of 'sodomy' and 'sexual intercourse' between people of the same sex.For months, captains have said they would wear the band and were willing to pay a fine as a punishment if it came their way.However, in a turn of events, the likes of England, Wales, Belgium, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands today announced they had decided to backdown as the move could result in them not being able to play.The current FIFA equipment rules state that: "At FIFA tournaments, match staff must wear official clothing and equipment provided by FIFA, including FIFA event badges specified and provided by FIFA."Taking to Twitter, Fern voiced her thoughts on the matter.The author shared an article which had the headline, 'England and Wales decide not to wear OneLove armband at World Cup after FIFA threat'.In view of her 126,000 followers, she wrote: "Fear where there should be none."Many of her fans also weighed in on the controversy on her post.Jess Rocks wrote: "No there shouldn’t be, but the reality is this is the Middle East we are talking about... What did they expect Fern?"Mr Neale commented: "We should have boycotted the whole thing!"Pedro added: "Shame."The FA statement on Monday morning read: "FIFA has been very clear that it will impose sporting sanctions if our captains wear the armbands on the field of play.
