Handling the truth

I was watching The Andrew Marr show this morning and thought a comment by Martina Navratalova was poignant for us Charlton fans. Talking about Government communication of spending cuts over the next few years, Martina* said,"Just tell us the truth, we can handle the truth. Its not knowing the truth that we can't handle."

This is so true in the case of the lack of information from the board of Charlton. Long established fans and recent fans may not like the truth, but if they knew it they would get on with backing the team,instead of speculating about the worst scenario's.
