If they leave their party should they resign as MP's and let the electorate have a say who represents them, but then I suppose they are not keen to give up their annual salary of £77k plus living and travelling expenses.
Should they be forced to seek re election?
Is the two main party system we have had for yonks about to come to an end?
Well we have had our differences over the past few seasons, certainly since Ollie departed over the appointment of managers.
A common theme was to put it mildly effing nobodies for working for OFC, but then as some said that they were only trying to make a living even under undue pressure from the owners.
When it comes to Terry McPhillips I can only wonder how he stepped up at the beginning of this season to take on his first senior management role and with all things considered has done a splendid job in building and motivating the team.
I have only seen four matches, three under his tenure and we haven't lost any of them and from what I have seen the likely hood of relegation even with a possible 12 point deduction appears to be out of the question, we are one of the best sides in this league.
Imagine if he hadn't taken on the role as manager, imagine if another wanker had turned up and we were really in trouble with relegation a real threat, in our present predicament a new owner might have been that much harder to find, as it is I thank TM for what he has achieved because at least we are a club not just with a great history but even with little investment we have a decent league position and that might just encourage a few to think twice about purchasing the club.
How do you lot feel about TM, personally I am pleased he is with us.
A spring like day at the Valley and the Blackpool fans had a spring in their step not surprising with the news this week and they pretty much kept up the singing and chanting for the entire match.
As for the game well I thought we were much the better side first half and should have put at least one away given the chances and half chances created at the far end.
Second half Charlton opened quite brightly and continued throughout this second period with both teams looking for that first goal. Certainly not a classic but a very good point for Pool up against a play off contender and with some key players missing.
They will not go down that is for sure, so with new owners imminent and safety in league one, bodes well for a promotion place next season and the Championship the following year.
I saw Kirby for the first time and he impressed me, got about, never gave up chasing quite a lively lad, saying that I thought the team all did well.
A small but vocal crowd of fans and it did remind me somewhat of seasons past, much more to come in the following weeks.
It goes back a long way before that time, if I am not mistaken the Gazetted did a poll some twenty odd years ago and a large percentage of the fans wanted them gone, only improvements with the team under Mac, Grayson, Parkes and finally Ollie kept the fans off their backs, at one time they even said they were so fed up with the wrath of the fans that they would sell up, shame they didn't.
As I walked with my pal from Wembley in 2010 I said to him the fans will be disappointed next season because there will be minimum investment in the team and why wasn't Ollie given a decent contract, winning promotion to the Premiership and still on a one year rolling contract, he deserved more.
The Premiership brought about an unexpected windfall, but instead of capitalising on the good fortune of being there and with their best endeavours to remain there went out of their way to do the opposite.
The fans were rightly furious, why the lack of investment, things were said the actions started the team went downhill and it has been a sickening few years, but the root cause goes back as I said very much longer.
PS sorry, as for the match, great disappointment same as the previous final up in 502 it was what was going on behind the scenes that eventually destroyed the club.
