Almost one-each again

20130929-003514.jpgShrewsbury were unlucky at Bradford in as much as they conceded a winner in the last minute after a Salop player has been sent off for handball in the second match running. Harsh, but this time, in the world of professional football, handball is given if you don’t keep your arms in. Unlike games at Crawley and Rotherham, Salop didn’t deserve a draw.

P.S. Sorry to hear of Nigel Clough’s dismissal this evening.

Nottingham East enjoys the conference

Seems the relaxed nature of Labour’s conference gave delegates and visitors more enjoyment.

Labour on the people’s side; the Tories putting appeals into Europe to save bankers’ bonuses.
Some criticisms tonight, to be sure, but some celebrations too, including of Andy Burnham’s vision for care for the elderly and better integration with social services and mental health services, which has perhaps been overlooked.

Congratulations too to our MP, Chris Leslie, who has slogged during the summer holidays to give the cost of living crisis some profile, and to some effect – gaining coverage for the statistic showing 38 out of 39 months on Cameron has seen increase in earnings behind increase in prices.
