And another rat deserts the sinking ship.  Tory MP Mark Reckless is defecting to UKIP.


This will be the by-election to watch.


Carswell will win his.

Binkley will lose the Heywood race.


But if Reckless can win, others might take the leap too.

Farage has conceded defeat it seems. Bet the candidate is chuffed at that support.

If smoking was 'invented' today, it would be banned, no doubt.


If smoking was an 'industrial' process H&S would of banned it years ago.


It's only a quirk of the fact it's historical and recreational that it's still around.

Sadly I don't think we fully understood/was aware/was told about the ground before we dived in with 2 feet.  The council had a ground they wanted shut of and we were desperate.  Gift horses and all that.


We are now in a place where we can only build on less than half the ground cause the rest is owned by someone else.  (this is still the situation as far as I know, happy to be corrected??)


So do we -


A) Spend lots of money on half a ground which will still likely fail to meet the standards and have little money for players.

B) Spend as little as possible on the ground, try and get promoted, work it out when we come to it.


I Think they have gone for option B.  Not ideal, not transparent but I can understand the choices.
