Apparently they have attracted a bit of a twatty fanbase since the cup run, these things do go hand in hand often unfortunately, had a bit of trouble at Northampton on Saturday.

Fair play to them, 6,200 season tickets isn't a bad return.

Lincoln have always had that element.... both the city and more so the county were the engine rooms of the Leave campaign in the Brexit ref.

So, Leavers are football hooligans? Pretty sweeping generalisation.

Of course not all leave voters were hooligans.... however there has always been a fascist element within football trouble makers, as there is within parties like UKIP who campaigned for Leave.

However YouGov analysis of the vote revealed that 65% of Labour voters, and 68% of Lib Dem voters, went remain, as opposed to 39% of Tories and 5% of UKIP voters.

Still on the bright side we are leaving and have a conservative government, life’s good.

Well Boston had the highest Brexit vote in the at nearly 76% leave, and other Lincs districts weren't far behind...

District            Leave    Remain    Turnout
Boston            75.6%     24.4%    77.2%
East Lindsey       70.7%     29.3%    74.9%
Lincoln            56.9%     43.1%    69.3%
South Holland    73.6%    26.4%    75.3%
South Kesteven    59.9%    40.1%    78.2%
North Kesteven    62.3%    37.7%    78.4%
West Lindsey    61.8%    38.2%    74.2%

It is generally thought this was because of the number of EU workers coming in to pick carrots etc..... interestingly, the NFU reckon that without a deal that enables agriculture to operate as it does now, Britain will run out of food on the 7th August 2019.

I'm sorry, what?  5% of UKIP voters voted to remain, they can't be that stupid, can they?
