Complete rubbish?

If you want a laugh, go to http://www.knightsofsaintedmund.com/ and scroll down to an amazing conspiracy theory about the Rising Sun. Much else to amuse.

You couldn't make it up - or could you?!

I suppose I shall be doubly cursed now - I'd better warn my doctor.

When I bumped into one who admits to being a knight (Alan Murdie) at the election count in May, he assured me that curses were on institutions not individuals. But there are a lot of individuals named on this site - including me.

Actually I am feeling a little queasy...

Paul dont be so quick to Rubbish this site ( Rising Sun article) . It would not be so funny if it was not so close to the possible truth.

A lot of the information has a great deal of creditability, and based in part on truth and fact, granted a little bit of conjecture.

This in my opinion is fair comment, and In part I find I agree with most of the sentiment, One could also make a much darker commercial and under hand assesment of CM, The Council, and now Greene Kings Greed.

Being a local as you know and having chatted to our locals ( ie of at least 40 years standing) there are a lot more people that agree with the content of this site than you realise.

But be assured GK will only be taking part in this "plot" if it improved profit and share holder value.

PM - I never thought of that!!! Perhaps I am cursed after all?

BB - I haven't the time to give a blow by blow account of what is incorrect or missing from the Rising Sun piece, but I can assure you that neither the actual course of events nor the key players are properly described.

As for the wider issue of support for this site, I am aware that a minority will be taken in by it (I have experienced so many wild and untrue rumours over the years) but I am saddened that any true Bury lover should follow ssuch extreme and outlandish views.

Sorry - a duplication glitch I can't correct.
