Well, what an evening.
I've had some vitriolic comments from politicians before, but take my advice, don't upset a football fan, or at least not a group of them.
I posted a few days ago on Mike Hancock MP's attempt to get a debate on having terracing at football grounds again. I personally am not supportive. It's a personal point of view, one I still have, but people have the right to disagree if they wish. A nice lady called Amanda from Sit Down, Stand up (an organisation who campaign for a return to terracing) wrote lucidly and politely on the issue, as did one of two others. Then, some people form a Manchester united message board joined in and one or two of them were a little less friendly. That was a shame as I want Manchester United to win the title this year instead of Chelsea.
So, I've removed the posting and comments (some of the comments were a bit heated).
Anyway lots of hits, lots of people reding my blog, but what a load of hassle. All I did was express an opinion.
So why blame Iain Dale ? He wrote in his guide to blogging "Don't be afraid to be controversial".
Yeah, thanks Iain, thanks a bunch !
