 add to that  ,Long eaton  ,Reading , Bradford and all the London tracks ,  sometimes i think people get a little confused between speedway and football 

The council found a new site for Reading.

 

The council gave it planning permission.

 

The problems were elsewhere ( and are probably ones that should concern Swindon fans)

Wow, that amazes me. Tax payers money being used for property speculation. Obviously no schools or hospitals to finance in those parts of the world then.

It amazing the amount of commercial property that council have been buying in recent years. It's a scandal but nobody seems to care. The government should be looking at what any local council spends on commercial property and taking twice that figure form next years budget, 1 lots because they clearly don't need it and a second lot because they still have last years to spend (albeit they not have to sell the property).

Local councils should not be investing anything in no public projects. Mind you, lets not forget most of them lost a fortune when Icelandic banks went bust.

The thing that annoys me is that residents tend to complain about noise and dirt when in reality these two are a thing of the past. Regarding the noise you can barely hear the bikes down the back straight these days

OR they look at the city of Coventry and think, "if this city can't house it's football team (that had to seek refuge in Northampton until Wasps Rugby Club gave them a lifeline) then what chance does speedway have in that city?"

A spot of politically correct, multi-ethnic, all-inclusive, equalities and diversity appeasing "culture", anyone?

The football club moved because the owners wanted to bankrupt ACL (half council owned) and get it for nothing but returned before Wasps bought it.

The fact no news has been posted yet for the new season speaks volumes. Starting to think even this won't happen now. 
I miss Brandon. :(

Zero news since the AGM, what's the hold up?

Even the BSPA suspicious of Horton's motives? It doesn't get much worse than that.:rolleyes:

National Development League has been the official league title for as long as I can remember, but ‘National League’ or NL is often used in the vernacular.

I nearly fell over in laughter at the last paragraph in the SCB statement..

Mick Horton has no plans to return the bees  to Brandon anytime, even if it were possible.
