A selection of Qatar bribery jokes after allegations of a £3m corruption scandal appeared in a British newspaper.

The controversial decision by FIFA to award the 2022 competition to Qatar has come under renewed scrutiny over the past couple of days following reports of payments in exchange for votes.

BBC News report:

The Sunday Times has obtained millions of secret documents – emails, letters and bank transfers – which it alleges are proof that the disgraced Qatari football official Mohamed Bin Hammam made payments totalling US$5m (£3m) to football officials in return for their support for the Qatar bid.

But football fans laugh in the face of allegedly corrupt officials, as is evident by these Qatar bribery jokes.

So shocked about Qatar. A real small, desert covered country with barely any soccer history. Sounds like the perfect place for hosting.

I went out and bought FIFA the other day. I love being the head of the Qatar FA. #topicalhumour

Be pretty funny if Qatar won a re-vote.

Not only have FIFA awarded the World Cup to Qatar but for another "donation" they can probably tell us who they've arranged to win it.

The Qatar 2022 World Cup officials seem very committed to clearing these corruption claims. "Plenty more bribes where that came from."

As soon as Sepp Blatter is spotted at any of the World Cup matches I hope, like the Somme, we will hear the booing back in Britain.
