Tonight’s Parks/Green Space Debate

22 03 2011

The people of Bristol have forced the Lib Dems to reconsider their Parks/Green spaces strategy. This is an embarrassing situation for a Cabinet who thought they could use their majority to steamroller opposition. Let’s see just how Democratic the Liberal Democrats are.


Here’s a written copy of my speech to Full Council which I will be making from the public gallery tonight.

Sadly the Bristol Lib Dems used their majority to steamroller the people’s expressly declared will.

The striking features of the debate were the cabinet member responsible Cllr Hopkins seemingly ignoring the public as they made their representations and Cllr. Main and Commer shouting down members of the public.

Don’t take my word for it. Check out the recording for yourself
