Fifa Crooks and The Bristol Job

June 23, 2011

The sorry tale of big business corruption and backhanders has reached its climax with FIFA admitting that they are a corrupt organisation. This is the bunch of crooks that Sexton, Simon Cook and all the other hangers-on and business-west clowns wanted to jump into bed with so enthusiastically. And this was the much trumpeted flag on which the council squandered a cool £1/2million + on.
AND this was the rallying cry that the money men and landowners bellowed out.
AND so Bristol greenbelt was deemed worthy of sacrifice to the bent Swiss altar of backhandery.
But the hysteria of world cup was soon to be conveniently forgotten as the WC bid failed dismally and England’s bid was flushed down the Zurich toilet. It had done its job and the speedy destruction of greenbelt, rushed through planning in order that the conditions of the fifa money launderers be met, was well on course. The ritual sacrifice of the local populations of Ashton, Bedminster and Southville had begun.
The icing on the cake of corporate greed was that on the back of the WC bid and against all natural justice and Bristol planning policy, the King of Guernsey who claimed he was a few quid short (of a billion) got the Monster Hypermarket on Ashton Gate. And the lucky plot of land to make this all happen was secretly donated by the spineless council gnomes in a backroom deal that ignored the pressing need for new housing and schools that the area really needed. The Massive hypermarket swindle the merchants of greed concocted and forced through planning is a masterclass in an eye-watering conspiracy at the top of the rip-off capitalist greed merchants Book of Greedy Hypermarket Swindles. The swindle even saw the directors of BCFC using their loyal fans as cheerleaders for a multinational supermarket chain in the ultimate betrayal as fans campaigned for the sale of their historic home to become a crappy giant supermarket.
The final nail in the coffin of the local population was the fudged-up response to the Town Green enquiry. Sordid details of misleading the PROW committee and witholding vital information becomes irrelevant as the council steams ahead with pre-determined outcomes just like the stitched-up planning committee that gave the Giant Sainsburys a community busting carte blanche. So the expensive and thorough inquiry is ditched in favour of a ridiculous cobbled up appeal to new evidence by the rich landowners.

Where are we ordinary folk now in the sordid tale of corporate debauchery?

Sold down the river again.

    If I could be arsed I’d make one of those Downfall Hitler pisstakes based on Lansdown hearing about the Town Green decision.
