For those interested in how the future MP of Grimsby sees things I tweeted the Con, Lab, Lib and Green candidates. (I left out UKIP  after their recent Tioxide Huntsman site farago.)

I asked where they stood on relocation to Peaks Parkway.

Here are the replies so far:

First to reply. Vicky Dunn, Green Party......
@Trawler_ Renew existing stadium. Out of town shops on allotments not way to go.

Second to reply: Marc Jones, Conservative....
@Trawler_ a new stadium is needed. Trust in the planning system 1/2
Public need consulting and community must be considered 2/2

So, well informed, lucid and engaging views from those elected members then. Well worth the effort.

It's twitter. What do you expect?

Do you know what. I'm bored of this stadium stuff and either get on with it or not. my understanding was that we finally got the Great Coates go ahead and it fell down because the council authorised another shopping complex. I haven't seen that happen but now were planning same in town centre which will create traffic problems on a Saturday. But regardless of that the stadium thing is longer running than an Eastenders whodunit and it all feels like a big fat here we go again.

I expect Politicians to be well informed - especially if they are going to speak publicly and represent constituents on issues. Those remarks from Vicky Dunn of the Greens show that she's not even in possession of some of the basic facts.

No member of a major political party will give you a personal opinion for fear of upsetting voters. That's why most of us have lost all faith in them

I assume I'm not the only Town fan who is horrified by the thought of actually leaving Blundell Park for a soul less meccano type flat pack stadium that will have no history or culture at all associated with it?

The new stadium seems to be John Fenty's attempt at leaving a legacy, but I for one don't buy it. Blundell Park used to be one of the most atmospheric grounds around, a place where opposing teams used to fear going to. I understand it's not that now, but there's no reason why it shouldn't be so again some time in the future. It worked well enough, and no problems with parking etc, despite crowds regularly into 5 figures.

Tell me please, someone, exactly what the rational arguments for relocation are, as to me they make no sense at all. A change at the helm and a fresh injection of boardroom talent could prove every bit as beneficial.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

If we stay at Blundell Park we'll become insolvent.

I seem to have attracted two negatives for suggesting that politicians should have some knowledge!

With modern politicians i dont think its a prerequisite.....tow the party line, have a poker face, never give a committed answer, remain ambigious at all times and last but not least be skilled in answering any question faced by pointing out the failings of someone else.
