Stabbed in the back by his own party, now Bristol’s Lib Dems have kicked Bradshaw right in the bollocks!
The Lib Dems have tonight announced their opposition to a BRT route on the cyclepath. Eastville Lib Dem councillor Muriel writes:
Please be assured that, all being well, I shall be attending the
meeting. My attendance at these meetings is 100% returning on one occasion from Spain and from a works conference in Bournemouth!
I will be supporting Charlie Bolton’s motion as will my Lib Dem
colleagues. If it fails because of the Tory/Labour pact we will
instigate a named vote so everyone in Bristol will know the
councillors who support the scheme and those who don’t.
I would like this proposal knocked on the head, apart for the obvious heinousness of it I have no confidence that First Bus would comply with any agreement and, like its other service in city, would be a total disaster, would ruin the well loved cycle path, cause a whole lot of demolition – and for what?
You can guess I feel very strongly about this issue!
All the best
The Lib Dems 31 seats combined with the six Labour rebels – so far – and Green Charlie Bolton gives the pro-Railway Path councillors a 38 – 31 majority in the council chamber.
Not even Bradshaw’s best political friends Bunter Eddy and the Tories can save him now!
Ha, ha, ha.
