The dedicated planning meeting to decide the Tesco Ashton Gate planning application has been cancelled today without explanation.
This follows another Lib Dem/council officer fiasco today after Deputy Chief Exec Jon House and his sidekick Alun Owen appeared to take it upon themselves to tell the Cancer our multi-million pound strip of land at Ashton Gate was unbelievably only worth £250k.
This was possibly an announcement these officers hadn’t bothered clearing with their Lib Dem political bosses Jon Rogers and Mark Wright who then appeared on this blog within hours of the Cancer’s story to rebut their own officers and key advisors and claim this £250k figure for the land was a yearly income figure. This is unlikely.
Further pressure was also heaped upon the under seige council – now sitting firmly on the verge of a corruption scandal – when the representative body of the Church of England in Bedminster, the Bedminster Parochial Church Council published an open letter, also today, likening the money the football club expects to receive from Tesco – with the council’s full assistance – to the thirty pieces of silver Judas received for betraying Jesus Christ!
Strong stuff. Can the Lansdown Tesco plan survive?
