    Ah, a more upmarket jumble sale, then?

    I suspect that is a very fair summary

    I've sometimes looked round shops of this type towards the end of the trading day, and that's pretty much what they look like.

    Looks like Friargate LLP will do very nicely out of this, while the council gets lumbered with someone else's debts: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/ne...-cash-14173209

    It's not the council, but the local tax payers being stuffed. It's OUR money that O'Boyle and his incompetent cronies are wasting, despite worldly advice to the contrary.

    I have one quoted there. My daughter took great delight in sending me a screen shot. It's a pity that they didn't use another of my quotes on the topic, but I guess they removed that one as they would deem it rude.

    Our money!

    Somehow I doubt that the project will ever be completed in its entirety, and I'll bet that it'll never deliver the financial benefits promised.
