Blue is the colour?
The Daily Telegraph reports that West Ham are under fire for donating £12,500 to the Conservative Party through taking sponsors Betway out to a Tory fund-raising dinner. Local Labour MPs Mike Gapes and Jim Fitzpatrick have been quick to complain and it's surely important, particularly as we've just rented the Olympic Stadium from the government, to remain neutral as a club. If Karren Brady, David Sullivan and David Gold want to support the Conservative Party as individuals then that's fine, but please not with my season ticket money. Will the club now donate to the Labour Party as well? I expect some gratis Goodbye Boleyn mugs must be in the post for Jeremy Corbyn… and Robert's Green party might like something as well.
