Supporting losers

Gordon Brown's solutions to domestic problems have always been to shower them with taxpayer's money and hope the problem disappears without the need for substantial reform. He must believe this really works as he has given £5,000 "of his own money" to keep a failing football team going just a little longer whilst calling on local entrepreneurs to follow his lead!

Why should high profile supporters be expected to subsidise the football team and a few thousand supporters if they are not prepared to pay higher ticket prices themselves? Raith Rovers needs new management, players and tactics if they are to start winning matches. Gordon's short term funding solution does not help to achieve this.

Would John Prescott be happy if the stadium was demolished and replaced with flats to reduce the social housing crisis in Kirkcaldy!?!
