How can it possibly be right for UEFA not to investigate racial abuse?

Anyone with even a vague interest in football must know that the run up to the Euro 2012 tournament has been blighted by reports of racism amongst fans of both host nations. (as well as the whole issue of Rio Ferdinand not being selected for England, which many suspect is less to do with football and more to do with his relationship with John Terry).

Now, even before the tournament had started, Dutch players suffered racist abuse at a training session (there's a link to a video of the incident here) and astonishingly UEFA have come out to say they don't plan to investigate - a decision rightly condemned by the head of the PFA, Gordon Taylor.

You simply cannot let this sort of thing lie. UEFA must act now.
