"Bradford Bulls have secured a Super League-record £1.2m sponsorship deal with Provident Financial.Bradford almost went bust last season but the four-year deal guarantees the club's future.
Chairman Gerry Sutcliffe told Sky Sports News: "It's great news for the club and the city and the sponsors. In these difficult economic times to get sponsorship of this level which secures the club's future for the next few years is really important."
Mr Sutcliffe is the Labour MP for Bradford South , now lets forget about the fact he is also the Chairman of the Bradford Bulls for a minute (must be so time consuming), What caught my eye were the people who had sponsored Bradford Bullsand and a campaign run by Labour and supported by Ed Miliband himself.
Back in July Ed Miliband along with Tom Watson joined Stella Creasy in Walthamstow to protest against "legal loan sharking"
So you would think that a campaign led by Stella Creasy (one of the rising stars of this parliament ) and endorsed by Labour leader Ed Miliband would be taken on board by the whole party.
Anyway back to the Bradford Bulls, I took a look on the Provident website
shows ,Mr Sutcliffe wants to use the money made from those loans to sponsor and fund the Rugby club he runs.
If Stella and Ed are really behind this campaign then i take it they will be having a word in Gerry`s ear.....
