UK View: ‘The moral victory is real’ –  Poms revel in Pat’s ‘failure’, downfall of ‘dastardly’ and ‘scared’ Aussies

And so we come to the last Ashes UK View of 2023 – one last jolt of Oliver Holt, a final chance to get down with Oliver Brown and some Nasser Hussain to mess with your brains.

Holt and Brown, the two prominent English cheerleaders, err broadsheet writers, were among many celebrating England’s fightback from 2-0 down to level the series amidst wild celebrations of their team’s moral superiority.

No word of a lie, Brown’s piece on The Telegraph website ran under this headline: “England are clearly better than Australia – the moral victory is real.”

He wrote: “Moral victory has never tasted so exquisite. The sight of Stuart Broad wheeling away like a dervish, departing as a Test bowler with the series-levelling wicket just as he had signed off as a Test batsman with a six, felt truly like a moment of national catharsis.
