I think it is less about collusion and more about Brexit being very short of money and people who they dare put in the public eye.

He has had his bluff called from last weak, and folded pretty quickly, in my view. albeit in a more clever way than I might have given him credit for.

It does feel like a fairly big, positive step. We at BST have been lobbying for this for a long time without ever feeling that the EFL in particular were taking it at all seriously. They have to now, although the statement they have made earlier today about Bury doesn't augur well. David Conn has picked it up.

Now a fairly big wedge is in the door, the task is to push it open further to beyond the point of no return. It would help if more people made a song and dance when things are wrong. There is no need to be silent about your dissatisfaction, or put up with fifth rate governance.

JRM has behaved like a bit of a tw** here, there are no two ways about that.

But I'm a lot more concerned about why the building was in that state, why the head of London FB seems so aloof about it, and why the head of the local branch of the FBU seems to be more interesting isn making political capital out of the whole affair than anything else.

There is plenty to be angry about in this case. JRM is the least of it.

I agree with quite a lot of that spud. But I would never describe Corbyn as decent or honest (not that he's alone in that by any means). But the people around him are far, far worse than he is. He is best summarised as weak-willed, intellectually challenged and easily manipulated.

You're right about his Front Bench ; the idea that Long-Bailey, Smith and Gardiner are Cabinet Ministers in waiting should frighten anyone. I hope for their sake they keep Lavery away from any election role this time, as he has to be the thickest MP I've ever come across, and that is saying something.

I'll try to do a similar hatchet job on the Tories over the weekend, for balance.

Is it immoral to be a billionaire?
at 17:58 1 Nov 2019

I doubt it.

It's immoral to deal drugs. It's immoral to be so addicted to drugs that you have to commit crime against innocent people to feed your habit. Making too much money seems pretty small beer by comparison.

Looks like a bluff to me - I'm not sure his Party has the money to fight all the English seats. It's probably one of the reasons he wants a pact.

I suspect that most people want an end to this, with a deal. If so, why throw away the prospect of one under the Tories for the uncertain offer from the RWNJ Party? Most people won't do it, in my view.

Former Blackpool advisor Tim Fielding reflects on a job well done at Bloomfield

I'm sure levels of fan engagement will increase, if anything. I have my doubts about how formalised or embedded they will be, as I suspect it is a relatively low priority area for the Board.

The FPG were a fig leaf and no more ; one of the single most disappointing things about "the end of days" was that the FPG was a perfectly good idea - had it been done properly and honestly, which it wasn't.

By contrast, I think Steve Rowland's role matters a great deal.

He was impeccable, and didn't get nearly enough credit for it. I've penned something for the other side on the topic.

THE BREXIT THREAD
at 18:51 17 Oct 2019

I may be wildly wrong - and probably will be. But the way I can see it going is :

1) there is a possibility that there won't be a vote on Saturday if the PM is certain he will lose

2) As thing stand, I think he will fall short

3) if he does, I think he will express superficial regret and then

4) send the extension letter with as much obvious reluctance as he can muster

5) point out to Parliament that as things stand, the situation will be just the same on 31 January and

6) therefore make the case for an immediate election and challenge the opposition parties to vote it down

7) if he gets his way, campaign on the basis that he leads the only Party committed to getting this done, all the others are trying to frustrate the will of the People and that if you want it over you should vote for his slate of pro-Brexit candidates.

Just a theory.

Unless a fair few Labour MP's defy the Party Whip, I don't see BJ getting enough votes.

I don't think it would phase him unduly if he lost. Especially if he can say to the public, this is all down to Corbyn, Sturgeon and Foster. Me and my Party tried to give you what you asked for....

Rott, agree with "lone furrow" too. You are churning them out today.

It's not my place to speak for BST. But you are right that a tremendous amount of effort went into every helpful bit of publicity we got, every helpful intervention from someone who would be listened to, etc etc. I've no idea how many people are trying to perform that role for Bury ; I'm proud of the fact that our Trust have been at the front of the queue of people trying to help them
