What a crock of old crap.

The Farage 'fiasco' only a fiasco to a few local whingeing remainers, the club didn't present shirts -the BP MP had them made personally. And Jolley has mad a fool of himself, again not the clubs doing. The club didn't leak the footage, why would any football club air their dirty laundry in public.

Give it a couple of weeks this will all be water under the bridge, especially if the new management team can eek out some coherent performances from squad.

Sneak into the playoffs and the place will be rammed back end of season mark my words.

Think some people just like drama and want any old stick to beat the club with, couple that with Remainer whingeing and you've got a mountain out a molehill.

The Farage "fiasco" is a confected outrage by people who don't agree with him, including you it seems.

Grimsby voted for Brexit, many people will support the Brexit party (the event itself was a sell out) so it may have left you with a sick taste in your mouth but you may well be in the minority.

A Tory councillor owns the club; I ahve not heard one person ever say he is not going to BP because I don't agree with the owners political views.

There is plenty wrong at BP, but hiring out one of its main income streams available to anyone is not one of them.



You only have to look at how many seats the Brexit Party won at the European Elections to see that they have the support of a lot more people than some on here realise or care to acknowledge.

In the last general election UKIP were making the same noises about brexit. They got hammered at the polls.

Apart from their views on brexit they don't have one single coherent policy on anything.

Voting for them in a general election is a wasted vote IMHO.

I think the Farage meeting was excellent pr for the club. After all the club us owned by a true blue conservative and by allowing one of  his electoral challengers to use the clubs facilities shows an open and diverse culture which should be applauded

So if they hosted a convention of men who liked sniffing girls' knickers, you'd be fully in support? I mean, like Brexit, it's not for everyone but there is still a demand...

No, that would need to be corsets.

While I would disagree with being classed as a whinging remainer (I think there are a good number of people like myself who voted remain but accept as we live in a democracy we have to respect the result of the vote and concentrate on trying to make everyone's lot better in the country). I think allowing Farage at the club with his political past was not exactly sending the right message to the wider public of Grimsby. Not if you want that to be a message of inclusion and diversity (like the mural that the club made much fan fare of for example).

Though I do agree that a few wins and this past week will all seem a distant memory.

Personally I would like to thank the club for inadvertently making the past week far more interesting than it would have been. Who needs football when we have had the levels of entertainment we have been treated to lately. Getting to Game of Thrones level of drama these days
