The NELC Debate

David Peasgood this week finds Fred and Bert just cannot believe the meeting they attended at the Town Hall!
Hear their views and YOU decide in our latest 'fishy' poll.

Fred and Bert

The NELC Debate

FRED:
Unbelievable. I can't believe those stupid councilors kicked the new stadium into touch.

BERT:
For once I agree with you totally. We had a huge survey and the support for it was overwhelmingly in favour. If these councilors were representing their constituencies then they did a pretty poor job

FRED:
The daftest thing was having to lose 7 votes before we started. We might have well have said 'All those in favour leave the meeting now, and then we'll start' Bloody ridiculous.

BERT:
The Willows mob reckoned there would be excess parking on Willows and Wybers. This is stupid. Have they looked at a map lately? I know people don't mind a stroll to the grounds but not a 2 or 3 mile hike.

FRED:
Aye and wasn't there a Freshney ward guy who was worried about the effect the new stadium would have on Freshney place. I mean what's all that about? It's miles away too.

BERT:
I guess we just have to go to appeal now. At least that's the normal thing and more appeals of this kind pass than fail.

FRED:
Don't count your chickens. Clearly the anti-town brigade are stronger than many folk realised.

BERT:
Well they ought to start realising pretty soon that if they insist on knocking this back then the club will go to the wall.

Now for the vote...
