    You may well be right, but you should look at the careful planning and strategy of some of those that have been promoted. As one club has said our strategy and signings are based always on where we want to be rather than where we are.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    All worth while as we have regained control of our borders!! But then again even that is not true is it ?.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    I notice that most brexiteers are less vociferous than they were! Is that just because they won or they are having niggling doubts?

    Calm down fields of Ambrosia and the promised land of milk and honey are just around the corner

    I believe the catalyst was when people like Ric Frost was driven out of the sport. He came in expecting others to uphold certain standards of decency and integrity , but instead he was IMO rubbed out by the Mafia. The standard of such person was to be told if you don't like F***off. We are seeing in some quarters a brief resurgence but I feel this is to be short lived. We are now a third world nation Speedway wise when not so long ago we were top of the pile.

    Dumbing down leads to more dumbing down which leads to there is nothing left to dumb down.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Almost inevitable but Brexiteers did not see it and probably never will. however we are out and will not be going back any time soon so no alternative but to make the best of a pretty bad job.

    I think we are talking about separate issues.

    There are personal pensions which are money purchase based on a maximum amount you can contribute based on earnings and age. There are also Company schemes which can be either Money purchase or so called final salary either way there are inland revenue limits as to what you can get out based on years of service and accrual rates these limits are very often more that which is provided by individual schemes. The best company final salary schemes will probably have an accrual rate of a sixtieth of final salary for each year of service which would require 40 years to get the maximum allowable pension of two thirds of final salary. The cost of this as a percentage of salary is calculated each year actuarily and will depend on many factors such as age of staff and other benefits the scheme provides such as dependants pension and lump sum payments for death in service (all subject to inland revenue limits). A lot more complicated but those are the bones of it.

    Possibly you have not passed your pensions exam

    When I see and hear people talk about final salary pension schemes I wonder whether many have any idea. What the Inland Revenue allow you to have and what most schemes actually provide are two entirely different things.

    Extortionate Admission Prices

    Like many others I agreed and was prepared to let my club hang on to the money I paid for 2 season tickets last year. I am not proposing to make an issue of it but my club at least had promised that people like myself would not lose out despite the fact that we will not see as many matches for our money that we paid for last year.
