For "Twit of The Week" I'd nominate the Hyde Utd fan who, before their first ever live televised FA Cup match against MK Dons, thought it would be a good idea to throw a flare onto their "plastic" pitch and burn a great big hole in it, jeopardising the game. What a tool.

Quoted from The Old Codger


That 30k could be well spent on Youth Development rather than going into the 'coffers'


What's the point? Ask Harry Clifton.


hopes Scunthorpe lose almost as much as I hope we win.

I'm sorry but I don't see what that has to do with my paragraph. If we didn't run the bars the likelihood is that the club would run them themselves. They could spend the money then on what they liked.
Over the time I've been involved with the Trust we have held many events for the benefit of the Youth Development but as you will be aware there is now the YDA who will fund raise for the Youth System.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Come on Barra, how much profit was the club making off the bars before? You know they'd be making less money to spend on what they liked.

Pretty Patel has got to be up there with her secret meetings with the Israelis.

Depends who knew the 'Secret' and whether she is being hung out to dry.  If anyone in the normal public believes  the full truth will  'out' on such a sensitive issue they are naive to the ways of such goings on.


Why?

Well, let's be honest, most of us have had a dozen business meetings when away on a personal holiday with family for a couple of weeks. Business meetings for a different department at work which we forgot to mention to our bosses and accompanied by a lobbyist for the country we're visiting.

Sorry, I meant 14 business meetings, not the dozen I originally claimed.

Seems perfectly honest and above-board to me.

Unless of course those 'meetings' could prove to be bad PR for your company, as they could cause embarrassment.  So  although your 'boss' may 'unofficially'  have known (and probably paid for that holiday), you were always going to be on your own if it went 'mammaries up' !!!  Obviously I am not in the know about this incident.  But I would wager serious money there is more to it than meets the eye.

Nah - I reckon she's just bloody useless. Nothing clever going on in front of or behind the scenes in this government, that's for sure.

Looks like she's been incompetent enough to get herself sacked, which is going some with this bunch. Telling lies to parliament when you're an MP really isn't too clever.
