And there were some on here wanting a rejig of this great message board and lumping everything into one pot. It's about time the mods pressed the ejector button on this and sent it to the plotlics and news forum where it now belongs.

only a few days ago, I asked people to take their political views to the politics forum. The problem is that every time Ben Bradley is mentioned, some people take that as an invitation to spout their political views. It isn't.

Sorry Martin please forgive me and feel free to move this to another forum but whilst we are talking politics, is this the same caring, sharing MP who recently voted against giving the towns biggest employer a pay rise which would come somewhere close to the rate of inflation and boosted the town far more than putting his name against positive things involving the football club which have been done by others?

How did it go? "we're are all in this together" :roll:

Just saying :D

I don't want to move the thread, because the issue of funding for Woburn Lane is an important one.

I do want people to stop taking it as an invitation to spout their political views every time Ben Bradley is mentioned.

Have Mansfield Town themselves actually announced any awarding of funds, or is it Benjamin jumping the gun to break the story?

At the end of the day Doomy, as long as it gets built then I don't care what colour MP polishes their ministerial suit buttons for it

You'd probably be better shuddering at the consequences of another 5 years of austerity!!


Sooner that than a country with unmanageable debt caused by a hugely bloated public sector, or worse being run by Jeremy "magic money tree' Corbyn.


Unlike the country with an unmanageable debt like us under a Tory government who somehow found a magic money tree when they didn't get enough votes so had to pay a party who don't like gays to help them?! Glad we're in such safe hands.....

So glad i voted for Ben, doing a superb job so far.

He might not have had much to do with this training facility but definately getting on with raising Mansfield's profile.

Corybn haha what a first rate ..... :lol:

The new MP could get a billion quid of funding for the town and sort everyone a job and there’d still be dull sorts on here chatting their 1970’s rhetoric.

That is an entirely hypothetical scenario, just like if he & his party drove the town in to an even deeper mire than its in now (which would take some doing) there are those forelock tugging types who would still want to kiss his arse.

The NHS last big employer in town a Labour invention, the introduction of the minimum wage vital for a low pay ghetto like Mansfield a Labour policy.

There are plenty of stats outthere if you want to put the time & effort in that show the UK economy post war has done better under Labour governments than under the Tories.

Name me one Tory policy that has ever been good for Mansfield.

Although I personally disagree with the policy, many Mansfield folk accepted a financial windfall with the "right to buy" your council house policy. A policy that Labour were not prepared, like so many other policies, to repeal.

Labour love telling us how poor everyone is, how much better they would make it, problem is they never do.

Tony Blair had the funds to do everything necessary, including the much needed NHS shake up but he didn't. That is the overarching reason I will never vote Labour again and the reason I left the party.

Sport and Politics have always been intertwined.

I can remember sitting around the colosseum waiting to go on after Christians had been fed to the lions debating, 'What had the Romans ever done for us?'

Working Family Tax credits, which helped me personally for a few years and prevented my own family being out on the streets after being made redundant twice in two years. Not a scroungers tax but a supplement for low earning families - particularly handy in areas on their backsides with low paid employment.

Fortunately I only needed it for a few short years and helped keep the economy ticking over. Tories however have different ideas regarding there necessity, unsurprisingly.
