Germany and England in cahoots?

Who are you rooting for in tomorrow’s World Cup finals match? The BBC suggests that English fans should back Germany, offering five supporting reasons. I’d like to draw your attention to two of their points:

  • 3. ‘Kraut-bashing’ is so passé
  • 4. Ethnically speaking

Note the reference to Hitler as an “outdated stereotype,” and the reference to English ethnic similarity to the arian race.. er.. I mean Germans. I just had to point it out, as it seems so blatant. Am I missing something? (link, not analysis, thanks to Nick)
