So spending £3 million on a link Rd to be used just 25 times a year is a good use of the Cobblers meager share in what way?

Who's designing and project managing this ridiculously expensive,  not fit for purpose carbuncle?
Not one who has NTFC and its future trading abilities as a priority thats for sure.
So Tom was strangely invited to watch a hole being cut and some slabs being laid to try justify the costs and pacify the sheep..

I now notice there's only ever going to be 2800 tickets for sale for the big league 1 matches to the general public in Northampton after this nonsense is completed..
How are you supposed to build up a clubs support base and income when the vast sum,  £5.800,000 has been wasted and spent so incorrectly?
Baa

I decided to undertake the arduous task of messaging Tom to ask him how it is going. As usual (unlike a certain purported supporters representative body) he was quick and polite in his response.

I simply asked: can you tell me when work will start on the actual physical structure of the East stand. His response was this:

“Kelvin, David and Gareth walked the site today and they started on the building weeks ago. They have cut through the slab for the new service lift, they have completed block work, footings for the new reception etc etc. I was invited to attend this but couldn't as away with work The land work is mainly for the drainage, the link road, the parking etc. We decided to tidy up all the rest of the land while machinery was on site - makes sense and will look better. Plus the link road is only for the Football Club, East Stand and Parking. There is no plans for that road to be used to service anything else at this point. Should be lots more visible work in next week or two”.

If I had £10m kicking about, I don't suppose I would miss the odd £100 000 here and there.

However, I would never be in that position as I know I don't need that amount of wealth, so would have found some good cause (s) to share it with.

I'd say it is relatively more serious for those who are such low earners that they have only just been brought into paying tax by the ongoing not raising of the tax thresholds in line with earnings going up. That's greed from the ruling party.

I'm very far from being personally troubled by this, it's just that it doesn't sit with me in terms of fairness.

There's a general assumption that anyone with a significant amount of money in the bank is some sort of Scrooge-like miser who has only got there by dodging taxes and hanging onto every penny.

That's a lazy stereotype. There will be plenty of people out there who have paid everything they should and given plenty to charity. To tax them again on money they have in the bank is just grossly unfair.

My views on inheritance tax are exactly the same for the same reasons (I'm unlikely to be personally troubled by that one either!)

Versus Reality

So the trust board puppeteer is wrong yet again, just trying to drum up negativity with their incorrect assumptions without having a clue what is actually going on.

I'd say it is embarrassing, but it's just business as usual at this point.

He thinks he's Niccolo Machiavelli but he's more like Nicola Roberts.

I tried to point out on the Trust FB page that it really isn't  in their own interests for Trust personnel to keep ranting away about the stand and the FAB at a time when they need to be building bridges, cue comments about me being anti-trust, need to look at myself in the mirror, spewing bile blah blah blah. Oh, and that old chestnut about personal opinions not being the Trust opinion that's never once carried an ounce of water.

I give up, it's a waste of time trying to help them because they are a waste of time and a waste of space.

£65,000 in 1965 is worth £1,577,292.08 today ( according to a calculator on google)

£1.5m now is peanuts in the PL.

Would probably be the signing on fee for the next "wonderkid" up in Manchester?

Sadly, I feel that another three words in that statement will get focussed on.

It's called tax rises for the worst off. I now pay tax on my works pension.

Remember all the bollox said/printed about 'Gold Plated Local Government pensions'?
I paid into one of those for forty years and it's worth less than the minimum wage! And now it's taxed! Arseholes!!
It’s because of the frozen personal allowance probably dragging you into the 20% band?
It’s not something I personally agree with but we have to pay for all the handouts.
