Don't be alarmed, it's not personal, but yesterday our Tony suffered the pain of losing a very close lifelong friend; his football club. Hereford FC are no more and were officially put to rest yesterday after a long period of struggling against the odds to survive in the uncaring world of lower league football. Do not scoff, as this will be for Tony a hugely traumatic experience. Houses, friends, partners, lovers come and go but a football team is for life. He won't ever be able to support another team with the same love and passion as his dear Bulls.
The tribulations of Hereford FC are a reflective mirror of the ills of society. In a game awash with untold wealth at the top, the greedy pigs stick their snouts in the trough and couldn't give 2 hoots for those less well off below them. There's enough money in the game but too few greedy B's are leaving crumbs for the less well off.
But of course we are all in it together, notwithstanding that in the last year alone the number of people relying on food kitchens has increased by 51%, the privatisation of the NHS continues apace, care homes are closing, and cuts to the emergency services are needed for the next 5 years according to some. It's time to say no more.
