While Cabinet member Gary Hopkins continues to live in his own little make believe world where he thinks he’s in power and can make promises about the Ashton Gate land sale like “we will … get best value for Bristol residents”, the reality is somewhat different.
Because a Freedom of Information request published today reveals the people who really run the city council – its officers – are busily planning to sell our very valuable land on the cheap to Steve Lansdown so that he can sell to Tesco for a handsome profit:
The Council is currently involved in negotiations which could potentially result in the disposal of land for less than best consideration
Oh dear. Looks like Gary joins Jon Rogers in being in office rather than in power doesn’t it?
